Ford Mustang Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Revealed, Details Still Scarce

Nearly four months after Ford Performance announced it would bring the company’s iconic Mustang to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2019 the official unveil is here. On Thursday at noon ET Ford will metaphorically pull the cover off its latest Ford Mustang Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Revealed, Details Still Scarce

It debuted in the spring, at the 1964 New York World's Fair, far before other companies announced their latest offerings in the fall. But racing is in the Mustang's DNA; the pony auto first entered a competition in 1964 when the Mustang won the Tour de France Automobile. It was a 10-day rally race. The Mustang has also competed in SCCA Trans-Am, Formula Drift, NHRA, and more.

With Ford slashing all of its vehicle models in the US going forward minus the Mustang, it's clear how important the model is to the company, and to American cars in general.

Ford Performance and the design team's goal was to build a stock vehicle that remains true to the road car's design but also competitive on the track.

NASCAR is toying with using a drafting package it used in the all-star race this year in several events next year, but it is negotiating with the teams on which tracks that package would run.

Interestingly, Ford decided to make the racer look like a Mustang Shelby GT 350. The days of shaving off the edges in the design are gone.

But Harvick figures his Stewart-Haas Racing organization has shown the ability to adapt - it switched from Chevrolet to Ford in 2017 - so a switch from a Fusion body style to a Mustang body style for 2019 doesn't cause him huge concern. It was also built in San Jose, California; Metuchen, New Jersey; and at the original Mustang production facility in Dearborn, Michigan.

"[They have been] involving the aero engineers and people from the race teams to try to accomplish the things they want and learn along the way, what [things] make the auto make sideforce or more downforce", Harvick said. "Our sport eagerly anticipates the performance, style and fanfare the Mustang will bring to the track each weekend beginning at the 2019 Daytona 500", said Steve O'Donnell, NASCAR executive vice president and Chief Racing Development Officer.

According to Ford Performance, Mustang has been competing full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series since 2011 and has won a championship in all but one season. Ricky Stenhouse Jr was the series champion is 2011 and 2012.

In addition to the celebration of the new Ford Mustang NASCAR Cup Series machine, there's other reasons to party.

The specific model is a 2019 model-year GT convertible painted in Wimbledon White - the same colour that adorned the very first Mustang to roll off the assembly line back in 1964.
