Garage 56 tests NASCAR Camaro for 24 Hours of Le Mans

NASCAR and Hendrick Motorsports running a Camaro at the 2023 24 Hours of Le Mans just may be a distinct possibility. The Hendrick Motorsports-built Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 test car recently made its debut at Virginia International Raceway (VIR), and the likelihood of a loud, V8-powered stock car running the 8.5-mile mile course in France next summer is starting to become a reality. The Garage 56 project is a collaboration with NASCAR, Chevrolet, IMSA, Goodyear and Hendrick Motorsports.

The Garage 56 slot at the 24 Hours of Le Mans is a single-entry for cars that promote technological innovation without taking a spot from any vehicles in the starting grid. It’s been 46 years since NASCAR ran at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but neither entry finished the 1976 race.
