Ford’s NASCAR teams may have a slight advantage heading into the 2015 NASCAR season. Ford’s new Technical Support Center in Concord NC was opened early last summer and entering the new NASCAR season is now fully operational. Reporters got their first look at the new center Tuesday night as part of the 2015 NASCAR Media Tour hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway.
A neighbor to the NASCAR R&D center not far from Charlotte Motor Speedway, the 33,000-square-foot building serves as a center for Ford Racing technical support and for teams to develop and test their cars prior to hitting the track.
“In December, we announced the formation of a new organization within our company called Ford Performance,” Raj Nair Ford Group Vice President, Global Product Development, and Chief Technical Officer said. “It is part of our overall strategy at Ford to ramp up our investment in performance and racing to take advantage of a growing market worldwide for performance vehicles.” MORE>>>
