NASCAR Approves Redesigned 2013 Cars
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- NASCAR has approved all four automakers' redesigned Sprint Cup Series cars for next season.

Series officials announced Monday that the new Chevrolet SS, Dodge Charger, Ford Fusion and Toyota Camry designs have met the necessary targets for approval based on final aerodynamic tests July 18. Manufacturers can begin making parts and pieces for the new models, which will make their racing debut at Daytona International Speedway next February.

The new cars have a significantly different look because they are designed to look more like their passenger car counterparts.
