Celebrate National Donut Day With NASCAR Chevy SS: Video
When it comes to celebrating a win in NASCAR, nothing says it better than a good, high-horsepower donut, and no company has more wins in the modern era of NASCAR than Chevrolet. For this reason, it makes perfect sense that Chevrolet celebrated National Donut Day with a video montage showing some big, smoky burnouts from its Chevrolet SS racecars.
Not surprisingly, Jimmie Johnson shows up the most in the video as he has dominated the sport for the better part of a decade. Johnson’s success in NASCAR is only outdone by Chevrolet, which has won the Sprint Cup Manufacturers’ Championship 38 times, including the last 12 years in a row. Not only that, but since 2001, the driver of a Chevrolet has been named the champion 10 times.
The Chevrolet SS has been used in the NASCAR Sprint Cup since the 2013 season, and it is the only stock car in NASCAR’s top level of competition that is actually available with a V-8 engine and rear-wheel drive. As for the video, what’s not to love about watching 725-horsepower race cars smoke the tires for some killer donuts?
