Chevrolet will announce the brand of car it will field next year in the NASCAR Cup Series on Aug. 10, the company stated Friday.

Chevrolet has campaigned the SS since it replaced the Impala in 2013. The move is being made because the SS, which is produced in Australia, will no longer be produced after this year.

Chevrolet has won four of the first 11 Cup races this season with victories scored by reigning series champion Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Larson and Ryan Newman.

The Aug. 10 announcement will take place at the GM Global Headquarters in Detroit. Chevrolet, NASCAR and Cup team executives are expected to attend.
