by Michael Satterfield

Ford unveiled the all-new 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series Mustang race car, joining the other Mustang motorsports platforms including the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, National Hot Rod Association Funny Car division, Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, grassroots Cobra Jet, and the Mustang GT4 that competes in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series in North America, and the FIA British GT4 Championship in Europe.

In 2009 Ford unveiled a Mustang built for racing in the NASCAR Nationwide Series (now the Xfinity Series) fans were excited to see cars that looked more like real cars, even if they were based on the car of tomorrow platform. The current car began racing full time in 2011 and has won three drivers championships. Ricky Stenhouse Jr. won back-to-back driver’s championships in 2011 and 2012, Chris Buescher brought home the championship for Ford again in 2015.

“Ford and NASCAR have enjoyed a long and storied partnership, and the iconic Mustang has solidified its place within that legacy with an impressive performance in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” said Ben Kennedy, NASCAR managing director of racing operations and international development. “We’re looking forward to seeing what the newest generation of the Mustang will do on the track.”

The new NASCAR Xfinity Series Mustang will debut at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 15.
