The current Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 road auto is the best-performing Camaro ever and while the race vehicle participating in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series shares no components with the street auto, the first Camaro in NASCAR's big leagues has been engineered to be the best-performing Chevrolet stock vehicle ever.

Peyton Manning is leading one more drive on a big stage.

The Great American Race marks the beginning of the NASCAR calendar and was won by Kurt Busch previous year, although the defending champion finished half a second off Bowman's pace in Sunday's qualifying to end the session in 17th. The Camaro replaces the Chevy SS due to the end of production of the Australian-built performance sedan, but more importantly, the arrival of the Camaro ZL1 race vehicle arrives in time to help the Chevy teams recover from a painful 2017 season.

Texas Motor Speedway president Eddie Gossage has been involved in NASCAR for more than 35 seasons. Chevrolet drivers only won 10 of the 36 races last season while Ford drivers also won 10 races and Toyota drivers won the other 16 races. "I wouldn't be surprised to see William win a race or two, make it to the playoffs".

"It will be a tough weekend and always challenging to win the 500".

"This year, you are going see a guy win his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series championship - Kyle Busch, driver for Joe Gibbs Racing".

"Serving as the Honorary Pace Car Driver will be a truly unique and exciting experience", Manning said.

The first running of the Daytona 500 was held in 1959.

The 2018 Daytona 500 will be run on February 18th and the rest of the starting order will be decided on the 15th in the Can-Am Duel races this week.
