Chevrolet on Thursday unveiled its 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series Camaro SS at Daytona International Speedway.

The event highlighted the sixth-generation version of the Camaro, which will debut next February back at Daytona for the season opener.

“For the past 50 years, Camaro has played a key role in Chevrolet’s racing success in winning races and championships,” Chevrolet Racing director Mark Kent said in a media release. “We look forward to further success with the new Camaro SS in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.”

The new Camaro will replace the fifth-generation edition that has been in use since 2013. While major changes are minimal, the most significant refinements are to the upper nose and hood of the car.

Chevrolet drivers have earned five Xfinity Series wins this season, as well as 408 since 1982.
