Ford rolls Mustang No. 10 million off the line

Ford rolls Mustang No. 10 million off the line

Ford today revealed its all-new Mustang NASCAR Cup race auto, the first time Mustang - the world's best-selling sports vehicle - will compete in NASCAR's top-level Cup racing series.

The 10 millionth Mustang to roll out of Ford's Flat Rock assembly plant in MI was a six-speed manual 5.0-litre V8 GT convertible, finished in Wimbledon White; an ode to the first Mustang (VIN 001) that received the same white finish that left the production line 54 years ago.

While Toyota will be racing the all-new Supra at NASCAR beginning starting in 2019, Ford will also be bringing a new challenger to the field - the 2019 Mustang.

The Blue Oval announced earlier this year that the Mustang would replace the Fusion at the end of 2018, and it has previously raced its most famous production vehicle model in the Xfinity series. "After more than a half-century, it feels great to finally let Mustang run in the top echelon of America's most popular stock auto racing series". The Ford Mustang will make its debut in the top-level Cup Series for the Daytona 500, February 17, 2019.

Recently, the legend wrote another page in its big history book with the production of the 10-millionth Ford Mustang.

Samsung to invest billions in artificial intelligence and 5G
Talented students will receive opportunities to work at overseas research centers under cooperation with Samsung. Samsung Electronics said the announcement followed "many months of deliberations and review" by the group.

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. The manufacture won the 4,000 mile Tour de France Automobile. "We can't wait to see it winning races in the NASCAR Cup Series next year", Rushbrook concluded.

"[They have been] involving the aero engineers and people from the race teams to try to accomplish the things they want and learn along the way, what [things] make the auto make sideforce or more downforce", Harvick said. Ford didn't show off the cup racer's rear in any photos, so we remain curious as to how the Mustang's signature taillights look. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won back-to-back driver's championships in 2011 and 2012, while Roger Penske has claimed the owner's title in four of the last five years.

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

The automaker marked the occasion in style with its employees, at company headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan as well as at the Flat Rock plant.
