Science Channel explores Gen-6 car on 'How It's Made'

June 02, 2014, Staff report,

Fans will get to see an inside look at the production of NASCAR's most advanced race car

Ever wonder how Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s, Matt Kenseth's or Carl Edwards' cars are made?

Well, now you'll get a chance to see, as hit Science Channel TV show "How It's Made" will go behind the scenes to give viewers an inside look at how NASCAR's Gen-6 race car bodies are made.

The show, which airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET, visits Earnhardt's shop at Hendrick Motorsports in Concord, North Carolina to reveal just how the organization -- which has a whopping 11 Sprint Cup Series championships -- builds the Chevrolet SS cars their drivers use.

The Gen-6 car came into action last year for the start of the 2013 season, sporting an entirely different look from 2012. 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 and has continued to provide close competition on a weekly basis.

Tune in Thursday to get your chance at seeing how it all comes together.
