    2011 Ford Mustang V6 to pace NASCAR race at Bristol

    6 Comments by admin Published on 03-17-2010 04:13 PM


    Historically, pace cars have been limited to the highest performing models of each brand. That's about to change this weekend when the new 2011 Ford Mustang V6 will serve as the pace car for NASCAR's Food Land 500 at Bristol International Speedway. This will be the second time a Mustang has paced a NASCAR race this year after the new 5.0-liter Mustang GT led the pack at the Daytona 500 in February.

    Despite being the least powerful Mustang available for 2011, the V6 model will be more than capable of carrying out its duties thank to its new 3.7-liter engine and six-speed transmission. With 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, it should have no trouble setting the pace on Bristol's half mile oval. The budget pony car will undoubtedly be one of the most efficient pace cars in history as well, with the V6 officially rated at a record 31 mpg on the highway. You can see the new 2011 Mustang V6 pace car in action by tuning into Fox this Sunday at 1:00 pm EST.

    Probably advertising... this car is such a good thing (powerful enough to have a decent Sunday drive, efficient enough to take you to work Monday through Friday) that it needs publicity. But with such vast improvements over the 2010 they're going to have to hold off on major adds until they get rid of enough of last year's model
    Some day... a gutted APR widebody S197 with a sc'd 5.0L engine. For now, I'm trying to avoid swerving into oncoming traffic just to get rid of my Saturn.
