Chevrolet says it wouldn't bolt NASCAR
Auto Racing Videos
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Chevrolet may have pulled out of NASCAR had the sanctioning body not agreed to redesign race cars and make them more relevant to consumers.
NASCAR president Mike Helton and Hendrick Motorsports owner Rick Hendrick said Saturday that they had talks with the American automaker that made it clear things needed to change to keep Chevrolet happy.
But Mark Reuss, president of General Motors North America, said the auto giant never threatened to walk.
“We're not going to walk in and threaten we're going to leave anything,” Ruess said. “We're going to have great conversations about what we're going to do, so that's the way we'll approach it.”
