Ford today revealed the all-new 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series Mustang. The all-new racer marks the fifth all-new motorsport Mustang unveiled in the past year.
The new racing Mustangs were all projects that included members of Ford’s engineering and aerodynamics teams based out of the Ford Performance Technical Center in Concord, NC.
The facility has evolved from a racing-only facility to a testbed of development for production vehicles, as well as motorsport including the all-new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500.
“We’ve always talked about Mustang being a car that was born to race, and it’s been gratifying to see it performing so well in multiple series around the world,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports.
“It’s a credit to all of our engineers and teams that have worked so hard to make Mustang a championship contender right out of the box.”
In addition to the new motorsport Mustangs, Ford also competes with the Mustang GT4 in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in North America, and the FIA British GT4 Championship in Europe.
“Ford and NASCAR have enjoyed a long and storied partnership, and the iconic Mustang has solidified its place within that legacy with an impressive performance in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR managing director of racing operations and international development. “We’re looking forward to seeing what the newest generation of the Mustang will do on the track.”
