Radical new NASCAR cars to debut May 5

The entirely new vehicles were originally scheduled to start racing in the 2021 stagione, but their introduction was pushed to 2022 due to the challenges posed to their development by the coronavirus pandemic.


The new design aims to make the cars more relevant to street vehicles and includes a rear independent suspension, 18-inch single-lug wheels, a six-speed sequential manual transmission and a carbon-fiber tub instead of a traditional NASCAR racing frame.

Prototypes wearing a generic NASCAR-branded body have been tested in public, while the specific Ford, Chevrolet and Toyota cars were on the track at Martinsville Speedway last week for a private test session.

The three will be shown for the first time during a live-streamed event on May 5 when full details on the cars will be released and are expected to continue the use of Mustang, Chevrolet and Camry styling.
