Ford Mustang Looking to Continue its NASCAR Dominance in NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series Beginning with the Daytona 500
As we mentioned, the Ford Mustang has been dominating the NASCAR Xfinity Series since 2011, winning championships in every season it participated except for one. Those championships include four owner’s championships in the last five years and consecutive driver’s championships in 2011 and 2012. With a pedigree like that, you know the Mustang is going to have no problem continuing that success in the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series beginning with the Daytona 500 on February 17, 2019.
“We’re combining America’s favorite sports car with America’s top stock car racing series. Mustang always has been about affordable performance, which can be traced to innovations we’ve made competing in racing, like NASCAR. Mustang is a perfect fit for our racing heritage today and tomorrow.” – Mark Rushbrook, Global Director, Ford Performance Motorsports
