On July 2, 2010, the Car of Tomorrow will make its debut in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. It will also be run at Michigan, Richmond, and Lowe's Motor Speedway. The new car's first full year in the Nationwide Series will be in 2011.

The move was made in a meeting between car owners, crew chiefs, and NASCAR officials in July. NASCAR vice president of competition said running the new car in four races next year will give teams feedback for 2011.
