Ford is preparing to step its NASCAR game up, and we here at Landmark Ford Lincoln couldn't be more excited. The American automaker has always been known for its speedy contributions to motor sports, so it goes without saying that their latest one has been highly anticipated.
And just what was it? Why none other than their best-selling mid-size sedan, the Ford Fusion. The new Ford racer was introduced to an eager crowd at the 2012 North American International Auto Show, and it will likely be taking to the track by the end of the year or early next.
Of course, Ford has more in mind for their Fusion race car than simply bringing home a few wins. They really want to show off the daring potential of the Fusion to the masses. That's why the company is trying to make the racing variant resemble the production model as much as possible. This is something that many automakers don't do, as their main focus is on creating a speed machine that takes home the most wins possible. Of course, this isn't to say that Ford isn't in it to win it. Simply put, the Fusion is already designed to be aerodynamic, and they want people to see the very vehicle that they drive or are considering driving on the track.
The last time Ford introduced a new racer to NASCAR was in 2007. The company infused their race car back then with a slew of new safety features in order to appease those who consider the sport to be dangerous. This year, the focus is back on speed, performance, and agility.
