Ford NASCAR Mustang for Monster Energy Cup Series

Nearly four months after Ford Performance announced it would bring the company’s iconic Mustang to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2019 the official unveil is here. On Thursday at noon ET Ford will metaphorically pull the cover off its latest

Ford would have you believe that the 'stang's NASCAR Cup series debut is one designed purely to boost the pony car's profile.

Ford Performance and the design team's goal was to build a stock auto that remains true to the road car's design but also competitive on the track. A new 2019 NASCAR Ford race vehicle has made it's debut.

The Mustang will also join Australia's Supercars series in 2019.

Soon after, it began a racing legacy in SCCA Trans-Am, IMSA, NHRA, Formula Drift and NASCAR Xfinity - NASCAR's second tier series.

Even before Mustang became a global icon, its first competition was in 1964, when it surprisingly won the Tour de France Automobile, a grueling 4,000 mile, 10-day rally. Ford now runs the Fusion in the NASCAR Cup series, and it has found its way to victory lane nine times.

Ford released images of its new Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series entry today and announced that its first race will be next February's Daytona 500.

Another White House official confirmed that Manigault Newman brought Cohen into the White House and was later rebuked for it. Omarosa doesn't claim to have heard Trump use this racial slur herself, but knows of multiple people who have.

Tony Stewart, a three-time Cup Series champion and current team owner in the series, did the honors by driving the Mustang from the Ford plant at Flat Rock, Michigan, almost 20 miles to Ford headquarters in Dearborn.

"Our sport eagerly anticipates the performance, style and fanfare the Mustang will bring to the track each weekend beginning at the 2019 Daytona 500", O'Donnell concluded.

A white and blue 2019 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Mustang was sacked up and driven into a Ford winner's circle stage with fan favorite Tony Stewart behind the wheel and with all 13 Ford Cup drivers now competing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Series present at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.

Interestingly, Ford decided to make the racer look like a Mustang Shelby GT 350. There, the Mustang Xfinity racer has earned a championship every year save for one season. Ford could stand its best chance for a long time in 2019 because the championship will introduce a raft of changes, including a new aero package, that should make for closer races. Also on hand were media, Ford employees, along with NASCAR team owners and NASCAR executives.
