Ford Motor Company showed off the new model it will race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series this season Monday. The new NASCAR Fusion, which hits the track next month at Daytona Speedweeks was shown for the first time at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The new model has been updated for the first time since NASCAR allowed manufacturers to racecars that more closely resemble their showroom counterparts three years ago.
Ford updated the model to closer match the components on the 2017 Ford Fusion production car. The model includes the new digital dashboard system that is mandatory this season. With it teams can switch between as many as 16 preset screens to display information with three different graphic looks.
“There’s no mistaking we’re here to win races and championships,” said Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. MORE>>>
