Ford and Toyota New Models Stir NASCAR Excitement for 2024

Ford and Toyota New Models: During the NASCAR off-season, teams are actively engaged in testing their cars for the forthcoming season. Chevrolet has stuck with its existing package, while Ford and Toyota have unveiled new models for the 2024 season.

The Phoenix Raceway witnessed rigorous two-day testing sessions for the new Ford Mustang Dark Horse and the Toyota Camry XSE. Recently retired NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick shared insights into their performance, offering his assessment on which car might excel.

Responses to the manufacturers’ new car releases have been varied within the NASCAR community. Opinions range from open favoritism or criticism of the designs to detailed analysis predicting the cars’ on-track performance.

According to our sources, an image of Erik Jones’ #43 car from Richard Petty Motorsports, showcasing the new Ford and Toyota bodies debuted at the Phoenix test. Kevin Harvick weighed in, expressing a preference for the Toyota, retweeting Bob’s post and commenting, “Looks like that Toyota will be able to push better on a speedway.”

The testing and tuning of the Mustang Dark Horse and Camry XSE aim for optimal performance on NASCAR ovals and road courses. However, Chevrolet’s decision to maintain its existing model raises concerns within the racing community.

Earlier in May, Chevrolet announced the discontinuation of the Camaro, with the final sixth generation car rolling off the assembly line in January 2024. Scott Bell, Vice President of Global Chevrolet, stated they aren’t introducing a new car immediately but assured that the Camaro’s motorsport legacy is ongoing.

Some fans expressed doubts about the Camaro’s performance on drafting tracks, while others attributed Chevrolet’s lack of innovation to their decision not to introduce new road-legal Camaro ZL1s.

While Ford and Toyota are aggressively preparing for the upcoming season, Chevrolet’s static approach due to a lack of incentives in vehicle upgrades might lead to a shift in the 2024 results compared to their runner-up spot in the previous season.
