An important statement was made last Friday at the Atlanta Motor Speedway by Chevrolet Division, it will present its Car of Tomorrow as an Impala SS, while continuing to use the current Monte Carlo SS in the rest of the Nextel Cup races.
Monte Carlo has the most Cup wins of any model in history with 400. Chevrolet introduced the Impala in 1957 as a 1958 model and it raced for the first time that year on the sand at Daytona Beach.
Apparently, Dodge is planning to also field two models next year, retaining the current Charger for the bulk of the schedule and using the brand new Avenger model for its COT.
According to the Observer, the new Impala SS will run in 16 Nextel Cup races next year. It will be used as Chevrolet's version of NASCAR's "car of tomorrow."
