Chevy Wins 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Manufacturer’s Championship
Bowtie Brand fans rejoice: Chevrolet has officially won the 2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Manufacturers’ Championship. Although, this shouldn’t come as much of a shock to you, if you follow NASCAR at all. This marks the 12th year in a row that Chevrolet has claimed the title—and the 38th victory overall for Chevy. It also marks the second victory for the Chevy SS.

Chevy’s first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Manufacturers’ victory came way back in 1958. Chevrolet has come a long way since then. This season alone, Chevy drivers claimed 20 victories. These drivers included AJ Allmendinger (one win), Dale Earnhardt Jr. (four wins), Jeff Gordon (four wins), Jimmie Johnson (four wins), Kasey Kahne (one win), Kevin Harvick (five wins), and Kurt Busch (one win). Other drivers for Team Chevy (who, uh, didn’t quite pull their weight) included Kyle Larson, Landon Cassill, Ryan Newman, and Tony Stewart.
“Winning the Manufacturers’ championship is one of the goals we set at the beginning of every season,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. Vice President, Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, who is known to state the obvious. “This championship is the result of great teamwork by the owners, drivers, crew chiefs, crews and technical partners. Special thanks to the Chevrolet powertrain team, along with the engine shops at Hendrick Motorsports and Earnhardt-Childress Racing for delivering the right combination of power, fuel economy, and reliability throughout the entire season. Congratulations to everyone who has made this special achievement possible for Chevrolet.”
Congrats to Team Chevy!
