In what has been an eventful week for Mustang news, Ford kept that trending rolling with the reveal of the Mustang NASCAR Cup model that will hit the track starting with the 2019 season.

This represents the first time Ford will use the Mustang in NASCAR’s top level as it has been used on a full-time basis in the Xfinity series dating back to 2011. 

The Mustang will follow in the footsteps of the Thunderbird, Taurus and Fusion as Ford’s fourth cup model since 1972.

RE: Ford Mustang NASCAR racer revealed

It’s probably (definitively) no coincidence that Ford has chosen to announce its 2019 Mustang NASCAR racer in the week of its 10 millionth Mustang celebrations. Set to take to the track next year in the top tier NASCAR Cup series, the new competition model will replace the existing Ford Fusion racer, which bows out after 12 years on track.

Regulations dictate that the new ‘stang will be a silhouette racer like its rivals from Chevrolet and Toyota, so beneath the new skin will be the same spaceframe chassis as the ZL1 and Camry it’ll compete against in 2019. Ford’s engine will also be built in 5.8-litre pushrod V8 form, as per series regulations, and produce close to 900 American horses.
