Chevy is the Most Successful Name in Motorsports
You have assuredly at least heard of the big year Chevy performance had in 2013. The Detroit automaker unveiled the all-new 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray and even brought back the performance sedan with the introduction of the 2014 Chevy SS, but you may not be aware that Chevy performance dominated on the track, as well as off it.
In 2013, Chevrolet claimed 14 manufacturer, driver, and team championships, making Chevy the most successful nameplate in all of professional motorsports. Chevy’s titles in 2013 included wins in NASCAR, IndyCar, ALMS, GRAND-AM, and the Pirelli World Challenge series.
“We had an amazing year in 2013, winning more championships in professional motorsport than any other manufacturer,” said Jim Campbell, General Motors’ U.S. vice president, Performance Vehicles, and Motorsports, in a press release. “Our success was the direct result of considerable preparation, strategy, teamwork and great drive from our teams, drivers, and partners in open wheel, stock car, and sports car racing. We are looking forward to continuing that momentum for 2014.”
Chevy performance has no plans of slowing down in 2014, as an announcement to debut the all-new Corvette C7.R at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show has enthusiasts already excited for the new year.
