Chevrolet has been dominating Nascar since 1958. That is an incredibly long time. I didn’t even know they were racing that far back. Check out the image below.
That doesn’t even look like anything you would associate with Nascar but Chevrolet was as good back in the day as they are today. It doesn’t matter who your favorite driver is on the circuit, odds are they are in a Chevrolet. Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s victory in the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Raceway on Sunday clinched the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series manufacturers’ championship for Chevrolet. It marks the 13th consecutive year and 39th time overall that the Bowtie brand has won the prestigious title in NASCAR’s premier series. It is the third manufacturers’ award for the Chevrolet SS race car.
“Winning the manufacturers’ championship is one of the goals we set at the beginning of every season,” said Jim Campbell, Chevy’s U.S. vice president, performance vehicles and motorsports. “This award 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.”
In the 35 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races run to date in the 2015 season, Chevrolet drivers and teams have captured 15 victories. Chevrolet won its first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series manufacturers’ championship in 1958.
