There Will Be a 2015 Mustang GT Pace Car at the Quicken Loans 400
May the Year of the Mustang roll on! Two months after celebrating the 50th anniversary of their most prized pony, Ford has announced that a 2015 Ford Mustang GT fastback will serve as the pace car at the Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race this Sunday at the Michigan International Speedway.
The pace car will be driven by Joe Hinrichs, Ford Motor Company president of The Americas.
“Ford is very proud to have the 2015 Mustang GT pace the Quicken Loans 400 this Sunday,” Chantel Lenard, director, U.S. Marketing, Ford Motor Company. “With its proximity to the Motor City, Michigan International Speedway is a showcase for the auto industry. To have Mustang – a brand born of racing – in this special anniversary year, leading some of the world’s best drivers to the green flag, is special. We know our fans will enjoy seeing it out on the track.”
The 2015 Mustang GT pace car will be Race Red and comes with a unique “50 Years” pony graphic above the rear wheel well. The graphic wasn’t listed among the features revealed by Mustang6G.com when they leaked price points and options for the 2015 Mustang, but we’d guess there are folks who would drop some extra cash for it if it were made available.
