Ford released photos of an updated NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Ford Fusion for 2013 Monday. Ford unveiled the 2013 NASCAR Fusion at Charlotte Motor Speedway in January and then highlighted the first version of its new car in a team paint scheme on Memorial Day weekend.

Ford Racing is using the race this weekend in Michigan to unveil updates to the design of the Cup car which shows even more brand identity through enhanced design cues, including new grille work and hood lines.

Gone is the stickered front grille from the January reveal and in its place are actual grille bars which will adorn the 2013 Cup Fusion, in addition to several other key tweaks to the front end of the car. MORE>>>
