Silver Spring, Md. – Science Channel’s fan favorite "How It's Made" is teaming up with NASCAR, America’s premier motorsports organization, to give viewers an inside look at how NASCAR’s new Gen-6 race car bodies are made.
On Thursday, June 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, "How It's Made" visits Hendrick Motorsports in Concord, N.C. as the 11-time Sprint Cup Series champions build out a Chevrolet SS designed to compete at NASCAR’s top level.
When NASCAR arrived in Daytona to kick off the 2013 season each Sprint Cup Series car sported an entirely different look from 2012. Manufacturer identity had returned to NASCAR, and was on display during the 2013 Daytona 500. The Gen-6 car put the “stock” back into stock car racing as each manufacturer featured unique body styles that resembled the cars being sold on its showroom floors. Gen-6, now in its second season, was an instant hit with fans and drivers. After 13 races in 2014, the Gen-6 car continues to provide close competition week in and week out.
