"Nearly 60 percent of consumers polled believe the everyday version of the Chevrolet SS would take home first place if a NASCAR driver was racing it, demonstrating that the Chevrolet brand resonates for performance both in the racing realm and in the real world," said Arthur Henry, analyst for Kelley Blue Book. "When NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. recently raced his Sprint Cup Series Chevrolet SS to victory lane for the third time this season alone, he helped increase the model's perception as an attainable performance vehicle."

Kelley Blue Book is a sponsor of Earnhardt and his Hendrick Motorsports team in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for 2014 and 2015. So far this season, Earnhardt won the Daytona 500 and both NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Pocono.
