Hot Or Not: Chevrolet Camaro Xfinity Series Stock Car

Chevrolet is bringing new sheetmetal to the NASCAR Xfinity series. The brand revealed its latest Camaro stock car for the series, set to debut at Daytona next February, while the Chevrolet SS continues to do battle in the Sprint Cup series.

Obviously, the only thing that’s really a Camaro here is the front end and rear clip styling. But, we’re here to discuss if the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro wears its stock car duds fashionably, or fails at doing so.

It is strange to see the 2016 Camaro stretched out in stock car form, but we think the front face looks great, and should prove menacing in the rearview mirrors for other competing drivers in the Xfinity series. In fact, that’s where the Camaro’s competitive advantage supposedly comes from: its aerodynamic front end.
