With NASCAR deciding to phase-in the Car of Tomorrow throughout the 2007 NASCAR Nextel Cup Series, Chevrolet has already announced that the Impala SS will be the vehicle of choice to eventually replace the current Monte Carlo SS as its entry in the series. And today we learned exactly what the NASCAR-ified Impala will look like.

With the decision to bring the Impala SS back into NASCAR, Chevrolet thrusts one of the most popular vehicles in its line-up (the Impala has sold 219,000 units through September, more than all of Buick and Saturn combined) back into the spotlight. The Impala also has a storied history with NASCAR from the late 50s and early 60s, and it will celebrate its own 50th birthday in 2008.

The Impala SS will be raced in sixteen races in 2007, but only at tracks less than a mile and a half in length, the road courses and the second Talladega race. NASCAR will then add to that tracks over 2 miles in 2008, and then open up the full schedule for the Cars of Tomorrow in 2009.
