Be Among the First to See the New 2013 NASCAR Ford Fusion Race Car

By Cole Q.

Ford is bringing the "stock car" back to NASCAR with the launch of the 2013 NASCAR Ford Fusion race car.

This is a very special unveil since it will be the first of the 2013 NASCAR race cars that will bring auto maker brand identity back to the sport. The 2013 NASCAR Fusion race car will be based on the 2013 Ford Fusion production car that was revealed at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

You can be among the first to see the 2013 NASCAR Ford Fusion race car by coming back to this webpage to watch the unveiling at 2:15 p.m. EST on Tuesday, January 24, 2012. We’ll host the Livesteam video from a special program that will take place at the Charlotte Motor Speedway as part of the Charlotte NASCAR media tour.

We are excited about this reveal, and what it means to the return of manufacturer identity to the sport, especially with an exciting new product like the new 2013 Ford Fusion. The 2013 NASCAR Fusion race car was worked on extensively by designers in the Ford Design Center, the first time there has been major involvement directly from the Ford design team on a NASCAR stock car since 1970. The design team helped sculpt this car with the same processes that they use to create production vehicles.

Ford Racing Director Jamie Allison will host the reveal of the 2013 NASCAR Fusion race car. Lead Ford project designer Garen Nicoghosian and NASCAR senior management, including chairman Brian France, will also be part of the program.

Ford Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers and team owners will be on hand at the event to help reveal the car.

Hey Ford ! Only (1) thing is missing for the 2013 Fusion, a Sterling Grey SEL Wagon. I'm hooked on the C-Max, but still would love to see a Fusion Wagon like the British and French have.

The only thing 'stock' about a NASCAR are the tools used to keep it running.

Does the Fusion come with a V8 ? Is it a two door ? And is it rear wheel drive ?

Sounds awesome! I wish I wasn't going to be in class at this time tomorrow. Hopefully you guys will make this video available via YouTube or something similar for those of us who can't watch it live but want to see all the fanfare. Of course there will be countless articles and photos but we, Ford guys, want to see it the unveil the way it was meant to be unveiled.

Oh, you mean the race-purpose vehicle with decals on the front end where headlights and a grille would appear on a real car? How exciting. Let me know when I can order my rear-wheel drive Fusion with a carbonated V8.
