— What's new in Daytona 500 2017 update [v5.1.0].

The Chevrolet SS (Hendrick Motorsports - 2017) is a race version of the production SS. In the game, it is Hendrick Motorsports' car for The Daytona 500: The Great American Race. In real life, this car is being driven by Jimmie Johnson (No. 48), Chase Elliott (No. 24), Kasey Kahne (No. 5) and Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (No. 88). Jimmie Johnson's livery is the only one featured in the game.

This would also be Chevrolet's final year with the SS before switching to the new Camaro ZL1 in 2018 since the HOLDEN Commodore VF is set to cease production in Australia in 2017.

Unlike older NASCAR cars, this car (and the Ford Fusion) are the first NASCAR cars introduced after the name of the cup was changed from the Sprint Cup Series to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, following a change in title sponsor for the Cup. The cars are also the first year of the low-downforce cars, which means they now have more top speed but less grip.

Availability

The Chevrolet SS (Hendrick Motorsports - 2017) is available in two series:

This vehicle was added in the Daytona 500 2017 Update (v5.1.0) released in February 2017 and can be unlocked as soon as Jimmie Johnson's Champion Cup is unlocked or by completing the Jimmie Johnson Championship limited-time series.

This vehicle can be acquired for 500 Icon Gold without a showcase discount. It can sometimes be bought for 600 Icon Gold as a 'Get it Now' price, unlocking Jimmie Johnson's Champion Cup.

This vehicle was available to win in the following special event:
