Keselowski: “If (Penske) says it, I would say go with him. He’s always pretty trustworthy.”
I almost mistakenly wrote “Ford Mustang” in that title. While it’s widely speculated that the Ford Mustang will join the MENCS in 2019, that part has not been confirmed.
What has been confirmed is that Ford will have a new body in 2019. It’s the first conformation of a new Ford NASCAR race car. Roger Penske is the owner of a multi-car team at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series level. His organization has been embedded with the Ford program.
Since 1994, Roger Penske has fielded Ford. There was a brief moment where he made the switch to Dodge from 2003-2012. However, this is the 14th year that Roger Penske has run models from the Ford Motor Company.
Last year, Toyota dominated MENCS competition (everywhere but the plate tracks). In 2018, the Chevrolet Camaro made it’s debut.
