Mustang RTR was right at home over the weekend at HyperFest at Summit Point Raceway, as this annual event is all about having fun behind the wheel; something that anyone who gets a chance to drive the Mustang RTR can relate to. With the Performance Autosport Mustang RTR winning both its races, fans having the chance to experience the track from inside a Mustang RTR, RTR swag and cars on display, there is no question that it was a very successful weekend overall.

HyperFest attendees had the opportunity to ride in a Mustang RTR in two very different fashions; Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. was giving drifting “slide-alongs” in the Monster Energy Falken Tire 2013 Ford Mustang RTR, and people also had the opportunity to ride in a 2013 Mustang RTR Spec 2 prototype on a very fast and technical road course. There were many wide smiles glued to the faces of the lucky riders, but none more important than the wounded soldiers of the “Freedom Behind the Wheel” program that Vaughn gave rides to, something he really was looking forward to doing all weekend.

COVINA, Calif., June 19 — Reigning SCCA Pirelli World Challenge GTS champion Paul Brown hopes to make his return to competition this weekend in the series doubleheader at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park, the new name for Mosport International Raceway, in Bowmanville, Ontario, Canada.

Justin Bell has been driving for Brown this year in the Paul Brown/Tiger Racing No. 50  Ford Mustang Boss 302S sponsored by eBay Motors and Kenny Brown Performance, but this time Brown will try to substitute for Bell, who has a previous broadcasting commitment with SPEED at the Barrett-Jackson Auto Auctions in Costa Mesa, Calif.

Brown owns the reigning championship-winning team in addition to being the division’s 2011 driver champion, however has been unable to compete so far this season because he’s engaged in a battle much more fierce than any on the racetrack.  He is undergoing treatment at the Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center in Los Angeles, a leader in cancer research that is affiliated with the University of Southern California, after being diagnosed with aggressive melanoma (skin cancer) two weeks before the season opener at St. Petersburg, Fla., in March.

2012 Ford Mustang GT Pace CarSPARTA, Ky. – Ford and its dealer associations representing Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio announce a three-year renewal of a long-standing Kentucky Speedway partnership along with two impactful consumer promotions centered on the racetrack’s inaugural July 9 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series “Quaker State 400.”  

Long-Term Partnership
Ford continues its 11-year reign as the "Official Vehicle of Kentucky Speedway” by announcing an extension of its partnership through 2013.

"Ford and its more than 6,600 Kentucky employees are excited to power the speedway’s inaugural Sprint Cup   season," said Greg Wood, Ford Cincinnati regional manager.

Under the terms of the partnership, Ford will be the exclusive provider of cars and trucks to the 106,000-capacity speedway.

“Ford vehicles built Kentucky Speedway and have been our official vehicle since. It’s natural for us to work together to spotlight the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series visit to this region. Ford Racing and our regional Ford dealers are coming through once again with great programs that showcase our ‘Quaker State 400’ and the outstanding Ford lineup,” Kentucky Speedway General Manager Mark Simendinger said.

Special Edition Mustang GT 5.0 Official Pace Car and Promotion
Ford is excited to announce a Special Edition 2012 Mustang GT 5.0 Convertible that offers fans a chance to play unique roles in the speedway’s historic Sprint Cup event. Ford built and will sell only 43 Official Pace Car Mustang GT Convertibles to match the number of drivers in the inaugural "Quaker State 400" field. White Mustangs are numbered for collectible purposes and feature unique "Official Pace Car” badging along with NASCAR and Kentucky Speedway logos.

Ford stores placed the one-of-a-kind convertibles on sale today, May 11. Consumers who purchase a limited-edition Mustang will have the opportunity to:

  • Drive a Sprint Cup Series competitor around the speedway’s 1.5-mile tri-oval during the traditional NASCAR parade lap prior to the 7:30 p.m. start to the “Quaker State 400;”
  • Enjoy four complimentary "Quaker State 400" tickets;
  • Meet and have a Ford driver autograph the Mustang;
  • Be chosen to wave the green flag during Sprint Cup Series qualifying July 8.

Convertibles are equipped with a 5.0-liter, 412-horsepower V8 engine, 3.5-inch mandrel-bent exhaust, coil-over MacPherson strut front suspension as well as a custom exterior package that delivers a pedestal spoiler, side scoops and a decklid face panel.
