Dan Davis, director of Ford Racing Technology; Curtis Gray, president of Homestead-Miami Speedway; and Matt Kenseth, the 2003 NASCAR Nextel Cup champion and a contender for this years title, were all on hand at the race track today to help unveil the three pace vehicles in a ceremony before open NASCAR testing at the track.
We wanted to select championship level production vehicles to pace the Ford Championship Weekend, and we picked three of the best, said Davis, in making the announcement. When you talk about vehicles that combine bold design and the kind of performance needed to lead the NASCAR field on track, these three vehicles are the place to start.
I always thought the 68 Shelby (won a few trophies in one in my college days) and the 68 Talladega Torino were the nastiest lookin Fords ever built. I may have to reconsider that opinion.
