SPEED to air 2010 Roush Mustang Creation Story

2010 Roush Ford Mustang

After 14 months of cracking down and reaching the pinnacle of performance, the team at ROUSH Peformance took the wraps off their latest & greatest project, the 2010 ROUSH Ford Mustang.  Luckily for the rest of us, we won’t have to sit through just over a year of the R&D storyline to see the 2010 ROUSH Mustang go from concept to car.  The SPEED channel will soon broadcast a behind-the-curtain look at the making of the fifth installment in the ROUSH Mustang legacy.  Several clips were assembled for a comprehensive look at some areas which are normally off-limits to the public such as the modeling studios, the assembly line, and the Cooper Tire & Vehicle Test Center.  Included with the design and production backstory will also be some featured guest spots from Chip Foose, John Force, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, and Greg Biffle.  Keep reading to get the specific show air dates and more in the press release from ROUSH.

The current (aged) record for NASCAR top speed is placed at 212.089 mph, set by Bill Elliott at the Talladega Superspeedway in a 1987 Ford Thunderbird. This Wednesday (May 13, 2009) will mark the time in which this record will likely fall. The folks at Hajek Motorsports have tweaked and tuned a Ford Mustang FR500C to run on E-85 fuel to be the steed Bill pilots in this attempt. It should be an easy record to displace, given this Mustang has already been clocked at about 252 mph at the Salt Flats. Who knew green could be so fast!? Be sure to check out the dyno video and the official Press Release from Ford regarding this exciting event. Continue Reading →
