  • 2011 Mustang V6 To Pace Bristol Nascar Race

    Is this the year of the Mustang pace car?

    We just received word from Ford Motor Company that the 2011 Mustang has yet again been chosen as the official pace car for a Nascar race. This time around it'll be the V6 that gets the honors during the Food Land 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway on
    March 21st.

    "This is Mustang that delivers the power and fuel efficiency customers want," said Ford Mustang Brand Manager, Fritz Wilke. "To get 305 horsepower and 31 miles per gallon has never been done before in a production vehicle. In fact this new Mustang could do the entire 500-mile race on one tank of gas."

    This is the third time a 2011 Mustang will pace a Nascar race this year alone. In February the 2011 Mustang GT was given the prestige of pacing the Daytona 500, the first time a Ford vehicle has paced that race in 40 years. Then just a few weeks ago the 2011 Shelby GT350 paced the Shelby American race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.


    NHL, NASCAR To Punish Carl Edwards For Hit On Bruins' Marc Savard

    March 13, 2010 | Onion Sports

    BOSTON—NASCAR and the National Hockey League announced Wednesday they would punish Sprint Cup driver Carl Edwards for hitting Boston center Marc Savard with his No. 99 Ford Fusion stock car late in the third period of Sunday's Penguins-Bruins game, an action that inflicted a Grade 2 concussion and ended Savard's season. "NASCAR may have announced earlier this season that they would let the drivers drive, but when Carl drove out to the blue line and plowed into Marc's blind side, it was clearly the exact sort of cheap shot the NHL is trying to prevent," NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell said during a joint press conference with NASCAR vice president of competition Robin Pemberton. "We have no choice but to suspend Mr. Edwards for the next three races and the remainder of the NHL regular season." The Bruins would not comment on whether they would send quick-fisted team enforcer Shawn Thornton out to retaliate during the Samsung 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.
