Ford unveils 2019 NASCAR Mustang

Nearly four months after Ford Performance announced it would bring the company’s iconic Mustang to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2019 the official unveil is here. On Thursday at noon ET Ford will metaphorically pull the cover off its latest

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).

Eric Cantona 'confident' Jose Mourinho's side can be Premier League champions
Maddison had a strong season in the Championship with Norwich but will be making his Premier League debut on Friday. Still, it was a display to suggest this could be his season in the same way he left his mark on the World Cup.

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".

Champion Manchester City had already signed winger Riyad Mahrez for a club-record GBP60 million from Leicester City . Last season he made 30 appearances for Freiburg and scored one goal.

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.
