On the same day NASCAR announced that has prepared a rollout schedule for the new stock car for the Nationwide Series, Ford unveiled its car for the 2010 Nationwide Series.
Ford will produce Mustangs for its Nationwide teams. The Ford Fusion model will remain as the stock car for the Sprint Cup Series. The F-150 will be the model for the Truck Series.
As for the new stock cars for the Nationwide Series, Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition, said he anticipates they will be run in select races in 2010 and run the entire schedule in 2011.
"We had a very productive meeting this morning (Tuesday, July 28) with the team owners from the NASCAR Nationwide Series about the rollout schedule for that series’ new race car," Pemberton said. "In the days ahead, we will digest what was discussed today and make a final decision on the rollout for next season with full anticipation of integrating the new car for the entire 2011 schedule."
