When Carl Edwards earns trophies in race after race, it’s always him behind the wheel. But he’ll be the first to tell you that those victories require a lot of teamwork by his pit crew, his engineers and many others.
We at Ford also believe in the power of teamwork – which is why we asked Carl to approach Ford Racing fans with an important request: Tell us how to make Ford cars and trucks even better. Who better to give us great ideas than you, the passionate experts in the larger Ford community?
You didn’t let us down. “We asked for your ideas,” Carl says, “and man, we received a lot of them.”
In the video above, Carl reveals the winning idea, which was sent in by Gary G. In his submission, Gary proposed an ingenious way to combine the looks and body of a vintage Ford classic with the high-powered guts of a current Ford model. Watch Carl’s video to hear more about Gary’s great idea. “I’d love to drive that car,” says Carl.
“As a loyal Ford fan, you’ve been a really important part of Ford’s past,” Carl tells Gary in the video, “… and you’ve given our engineering team an inspiration, something to work on. And that makes you an active part of Ford’s future, too.”
Take a victory lap, Gary.
