A new, limited-run “Chevrolet: Winningest Brand in NASCAR Cup History” exhibit opened this month in Charlotte, N.C.’s NASCAR Hall of Fame. With eight storied Cup cars on display, the new Great Hall exhibit celebrates NASCAR history, highlighting Chevrolet’s record 814 race victories and 40 manufacturer championships as of the end of the 2021 season.
The display will be open until December 2022.
“We are proud to partner with Chevrolet in highlighting their incredible history as NASCAR’s winningest manufacturer in Cup Series history by spotlighting the breadth of Chevrolet’s accomplishments,” said Winston Kelley, Executive Director of the NASCAR Hall of Fame. “This new exhibit aligns perfectly with one aspect of our mission—to serve as the recognized home for honoring NASCAR’s evolving history, legends, celebrated heritage and family-oriented traditions. We are thankful to Chevrolet and so many of their team partners for enabling us to share this story with our guests in the months ahead.”
In the exhibit spotlight are eight historically significant Cup Series Chevrolet race cars from the 1950s through 2021—from the Chevrolet 150 driven by Hall of Famer Herb Thomas to the brand’s first NASCAR premier-series victory at the 1955 Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway to the Camaro ZL1 1LE driven by Chase Elliott to Chevrolet’s historic 800th premier series win in 2021 during NASCAR’s first visit to the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas.
Also on display, six additional winning Bowtie machines raced by Richard Petty (1978), Cale Yarborough (1984), Dale Earnhardt (1986), Jeff Gordon (2003), Jimmie Johnson (2010) and Dale Earnhardt Jr. (2013). Six of the legendary drivers connected to the exhibit’s cars have previously been inducted into the NHoF.
“It’s exciting to have our history in the sport honored at the NASCAR Hall of Fame with this exhibit,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet performance and motorsports. “We’re proud to showcase eight Chevrolet race cars from key moments that contributed to our success and tell stories of our drivers and team partners who helped us become the winningest brand in NASCAR Cup history.”
In addition to viewing the cars on display, guests will have the opportunity to learn about and re-live other Chevrolet milestone Cup victories since 1955 through high-tech, interactive visual displays.
