Feb. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- Arlington Heights Ford has long been one of the top auto dealers in Illinois, offering the latest cars, trucks, and SUVs from Ford such as the 2013 Ford Fusion (http://ahford.com/custom/2013-ford-fusion). Of course, keeping area drivers abreast of the latest news from Ford is also something they pride themselves on, and it’s with that in mind that they’re pleased to announce the 2013 NASCAR Ford Fusion will be participating in this weekend’s Daytona 500.

The development for the 2013 NASCAR Ford Fusion began over two years ago. The initial clay model of the NASCAR Ford Fusion was sculpted alongside its production counterpart. It really is a Fusion at its core, and that’s no accident. Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing, stated this was done so people at home could easily recognize and feel connected to the NASCAR model.

Of course, the NASCAR Fusion is a bit different from the production model. After the initial full-size model was met with an enthusiastic reception, Ford when to work on getting the car to meet NASCAR-mandated targets for aerodynamics while remaining faithful to the design of the mainstream Fusion vehicle.

The production 2013 Fusion was introduced to the world at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, while the NASCAR edition was unveiled two weeks later at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Work continued on the NASCAR Fusion after its debut, particularly in the area of its aerodynamics. Most notably, the grille was redesigned.

Of course, all the work paid off, and the vehicle was manufactured in summer of 2012. A triumphant exclamation point on the conclusion of the development process occurred when ten NASCAR Fusions made their way through the streets of Charlotte exactly one year after the vehicle was first shown to the public.

The Fusion race teams will attempt to win their fourth Daytona 500 in five years this weekend.
Arlington Heights Ford is thrilled with the NASCAR Fusion, and delighted to be able to offer the regular production model.
