Ford's run the Mustang in NASCAR Grand National/Winston Cup/Nextel Cup/Sprint Cup racing before ...Bobby Allison drove one to a win in '71
It seems funny that NASCAR is saying "Ford is required to show that the Mustang is a competitive equal to the cars it will race against. The reason behind the move is that Ford wants to show fans they can buy a car right off the showroom floor that mimics the one they watch every weekend on TV." With the new race cars, the only thing different are the decals. Even when they ran the Fusion, Camry, Charger, and Monte Carlo bodies, they were so twisted they lost the connections.
Now, through the '80s and '90s, they had to use a factory supplied nose, hood, roof, trunk, and rear end piece. If they were to go BACK to something like that, I'd dig it.
