Buschs' Chevrolet Impala SS Gets First COT Victory, But Winner Not Impressed

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Chevrolet, which has most vigorously embraced the change to a new-generation NASCAR racing car, was rewarded when Kyle Busch drove an Impala SS to victory in the first event for the so-called Car of Tomorrow.

Chevrolet Impala SS Busch didn't do much to enhance Chevy's marketing campaign, though. After winning, he remarked, "I can't stand to drive [the new cars]. They suck."

Another Chevy driver who had criticized the new car, Tony Stewart, dominated the race until the fuel-pump drive failed in his Impala. Busch won in a close finish with Jeff Burton, and Jeff Gordon — who started on the pole — and Daytona 500 winner Kevin Harvick made it a 1-2-3-4 sweep for the new Impala.

The new racing car is being phased in with a schedule of 16 races this season. It is slightly larger than the model it will replace and is conspicuous because of its different aerodynamic features front and rear.
