The Mustang Comes to NASCAR

Ford announced this week that starting in 2010 the company would run a Mustang in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. The NNS starts using the COT cars in competition for the first time next season, albeit in a limited format. As of right now the best estimate is that the cars will run in a minimum of ten races next season. Rumors abound that Dodge will also change their Nationwide cars to the Challenger.

So far the Ford Mustang looks like a pretty cool little car, especially the mock car the company released during their announcement. The Mustang has a long history with racing and as a fan, this should be an exciting addition. Plus, who isn’t excited to picture Carl Edwards and others behind the wheel of a Mustang? All we have to worry about now is how much the street car and race car will differ…
