After 36 weeks of racing, Team Chevy and its contingent of Camaro ZL1s clinched Chevrolet's third consecutive NASCAR Cup Series Manufacturers' Championship, and 42nd overall. The Camaro ZL1 had a dominant year on the track, winning 18 of 36 races.
Chevrolet's dominance was on full display from the start of the season to its very last lap, as the Camaro ZL1s would win the season opening Daytona 500 and season finale at Phoenix Raceway, and 16 points races in between.
Chevrolet's dominance wasn't limited to NASCAR's Cup Series. It also clinched the Manufacturer's Championship in the NASCAR Xfinity and Craftsman Truck Series, proving its undeniable prowess for excellence and performance in all forms of motorsports.
Despite the unfortunate news of the Camaro brand's impending discontinuation after the 2024 model year, Team Chevrolet remained steadfast in their focus. Undeterred by the end of an era, Team Chevy built on the momentum gained from a major aerodynamic overhaul for the 2023 season and their remarkable performance in their historic Garage 56 debut at Le Mans. Not only did they persevere, but they also completely dominated the competition, setting a new benchmark for the racing world.
While a Camaro ZL1 driver did not clinch the overall Driver's Championship in 2023, it certainly wasn't due to a lack of effort. The Camaro ZL1s maintained their competitive edge throughout the entire season, consistently proving themselves as the class of the field.
This triumphant season is a powerful reminder of why Chevrolet is the number one brand in racing. Whether you're a Chevy fan or not, their record-setting 2023 NASCAR Manufacturers' Championship is a testament to Chevrolet's enduring legacy of speed, precision, and excellence.
So, if you're a fan of racing and speed, keep your eyes on Team Chevrolet as it continues to set the standard for excellence on the track in 2024.
