After a racing season that saw 11 championship wins, Chevrolet Racing is ready to repeat last year’s successful season in 2015. Before it begins, we at Hutch Chevrolet thought we would take a moment to celebrate the 2014 racing season.
The team won five manufacturer championships and six driver championships in the NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA, United SportsCar Championship, and Pirelli World Challenge series.
“Eleven championships mark one of our most successful racing seasons,” said Jim Campbell, General Motors’ U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Winning races and championships on the track helps us develop better cars and powertrains for the showroom.”
A few highlights from Chevrolet’s exciting season include Chase Elliott’s win in the #9 Camaro, making him the youngest NASCAR champion in a national series and assisting in Chevy’s first manufacturer award for the Camaro in the series.
Meanwhile, Erica Enders-Stevens made history as she drove the Camaro to become the first woman ever to win the NHRA Pro Stock championship and helped Chevy secure its 20th NHRA manufacturer title.
Finally, Kevin Harvick wrapped up the season, driving the #4 Chevy SS to win the last race of the season and earn the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship.
With successes like these, we can’t wait for the team to return to dominate in the 2015 racing season!
