By the time NASCAR's new fleet of cars hit the track in February, there might not be a single fan who misses the dreaded COT.
The so-called "Gen 6" cars – the 2013 makeovers for all of NASCAR's Sprint Cup Series manufacturers – all look great, and Chevrolet's unveil of its new SS on Thursday in Las Vegas is no exception.
There's a sleek, badass look to the race car version of the SS (the actual street version, an Australian import, won't be revealed until Daytona next year) that should translate well to the racetrack.
Ford, Chevy and Toyota will all have dramatically different looks, and it won't be too hard to identify the manufacturers while the cars are racing.
