Ford rolls out 10 millionth Mustang

Ford rolls out 10 millionth Mustang

- Ford will celebrate its iconic muscle vehicle next year when it races the Mustang in NASCAR's top Cup Series.

Ford marked the occasion for the vehicle, celebrated in American song and film and recognized the world over as a quintessentially American cultural export, with a big party and parade at the MI headquarters - complete with a flyover from World War II-era P-51 Mustang fighter jets that are the car's namesake.

Hot on the heels of the 10 millionth Mustang built is the Ford Mustang NASCAR cup racer.

Set to make its racing debut at the Daytona 500 on February 17th, the model marks the first time that a Mustang will compete in NASCAR's top-level racing series.

The Ford Mustang first joined the NASCAR ranks in 2011 via an entry in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

"After more than a half-century, it feels great to finally let Mustang run in the top echelon of America's most popular stock auto racing series", Thai-Tang concluded.

Trump condemns racism on Charlottesville anniversary
Virginia Senator Mark Warner, (D), said that Trump shares responsibility for the violence in Charlottesville. Ahead of the weekend, it was unclear whether white supremacists would try to reprise the rally.

Ford gathered 60 Mustang owners of every model together at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in MI to spell out 10,000,000 with their vehicles, complete with a P-51 Mustang fighter plane flyover. The Camaro is in its first season of competition.

Currently, there are 13 Ford drivers in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The brand says that Ford Design and Ford Performance has worked carefully in order to translate the Mustang's style to meet NASCAR's look.

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. All of those drivers made an appearance for the 2019 NASCAR Mustang release.

Ford race auto drivers have been asking for a newer, faster design to compete with the Chevys and Toyotas.

Owners were called upon to bring one Mustang for every model year to Ford headquarters, and they responded enthusiastically. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won back-to-back driver's championships in 2011 and 2012, while Roger Penske has claimed the owner's title in four of the last five years. And just like the first serialized Mustang (VIN 001), the milestone auto that came out of the Flat Rock assembly plant in MI is the same colour (Wimbledon White) and model (GT).
