By Kelly Crandall | RACER.com NASCAR correspondent
Chevrolet will update the body for the Camaro SS in the NASCAR Xfinity Series next season, while the Silverado in the Gander Outdoors (formerly Camping World) Truck Series is being redesigned. The manufacturer announced the changes Friday morning at Texas Motor Speedway.
For the Camaro SS, this will be the third update since its debut in the Xfinity Series in 2013. The Silverado will undergo its very first update since 2014.
Per Chevrolet, the notable changes will be to the upper front fascia, fenders, hood and tail regions to reflect the look of the new production models.
“We always want to align our racing vehicles with what is available in the showroom,” said Jim Campbell, vice president of performance Vehicles and motorsports. “The Camaro SS was updated for the 2019 model year, and Silverado RST is all new. We can’t wait to see the Camaro SS and the Silverado RST on the track next February at Daytona.”
