Ford employees celebrate the 10 millionth Ford Mustang

Mustang is America's best-selling sports auto over the last 50 years, based on Ford analysis of 1966-2018 total USA new vehicle cumulative registrations for all sports auto segments supplied by IHS Markit.

Ford Motor Co. has marked production of the 10 millionth Mustang.

Chevrolet switched its Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race vehicle to the Camaro body, this year. The Mustang has also competed in SCCA, Trans-Am, IMSA, NHRA, Formula Drift and NASCAR Xfinity (since 2011).

Two killed in fresh Gaza protests but Israel-Hamas truce holds
There was no official confirmation from Israel or Gaza's Islamist rulers Hamas but there were no fresh strikes Friday. During the rally, at least 30 Palestinians were affected by Israeli tear gas, according to Gaza's Health Ministry.

The first race for the new NASCAR Mustang will be the Daytona 500 on February 17, 2019.

Ford celebrated the milestone with employee celebrations at its Dearborn headquarters and its Flat Rock Assembly Plant, including flyovers from three WWII-era P-51 Mustang fighter planes and Mustangs produced for more than five decades paraded from Dearborn to Flat Rock, where the Mustang now is manufactured. "Our Ford Performance team has worked hard with the Ford Design team to create a Mustang that will be competitive on the track while remaining true to its proud heritage".

NASCAR is toying with using a drafting package it used in the all-star race this year in several events next year, but it is negotiating with the teams on which tracks that package would run. Stewart-Haas Racing co-owner Tony Stewart drove a Mustang onto a stage for the reveal with all 13 Ford Cup drivers were in attendance. In that series, the Mustang has dominated the competition as it has won a championship in every season expect for one. "Our sport eagerly anticipates the performance, style and fanfare the Mustang will bring to the track each weekend beginning at the 2019 Daytona 500".

Those birdies after his big blunder stood out to Finau, one of only 11 players to make the cut in all four majors this year. It is only the second time in major-championship history that two scores of 63 or better have been shot in the same round.

During its 54-year production history, Mustang also was built in San Jose, Calif., Metuchen, N.J., and the original Mustang production facility in Dearborn. Ford also claims that the Mustang is the most featured vehicle in Hollywood movies, and has more Facebook followers than any other auto in the world. And just like the first serialized Mustang (VIN 001), the milestone vehicle that came out of the Flat Rock assembly plant in MI is the same colour (Wimbledon White) and model (GT).

Ford Design and Ford Performance worked carefully to translate Mustang's signature style to meet NASCAR rules.
