Back in July, the Director of Ford North America Motorsports announced that a Mustang would be running laps on the big oval in the 2010 Nationwide Racing Series.

This Ford Mustang will be competing in four races as part of NASCAR's 2010 new car rollout for the series. Built in Flat Rock, this car will be officially released today at Roush Fenway Racing in Concord, North Carolina at 1:00 pm EST. Team owner Jack Roush and Edsel Ford II will be on hand to witness the event, alongside a number of Mustang clubs and Ford Racing boss, Brian Wolfe. Being a public event, one can be part of the action as it is being shown outside of the Roush Marketing building.



Aimed to be driven by Colin Braun, the Ford Mustang Nationwide car will be tested November 2nd at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. It will be making its official debut in the series, with its first race being in July at Daytona International Speedway in Florida.



In a previous statement on www.fordracing.com, Brian Wolfe stated: "We had been talking with NASCAR for some time about Mustang as part of its vision for a ‘muscle car’ rollout for the Nationwide Series. We both saw it as a way of differentiating the series from Sprint Cup...We loved the idea, so we jumped on the chance to extend Mustang's racing legacy to a new series reaching a huge and loyal audience. Mustang has dominated other forms of racing, including NHRA drag racing, Grand-Am Cup road racing, and Formula D drifting, and now it’s coming to NASCAR Nationwide."
