Chevrolet has a long and special history at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The co-founder of Chevrolet, Louis Chevrolet, and his brothers competed in early races at IMS. Over 110 years later, Chevrolet teams will be competing in the NASCAR Cup, NASCAR Xfinity and INDYCAR series races at the Speedway this weekend.
“This is our home away from home, due to the special history between Chevrolet and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway,” said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president Performance and Motorsports. “Chevrolet is the only manufacturer that will be competing with teams in NASCAR Cup, NASCAR Xfinity and INDYCAR series races at the Speedway.”
