"We're combining America's favorite sports auto with America's top stock vehicle racing series", commented Ford Performance Motorsports global director, Mark Rushbrook.

This won't be the first Ford Mustang to have a Monster sticker on it, that's for sure.

"On the wave of our 40th anniversary, we couldn't be more proud to announce that we are now offering the restoration and enthusiast community quality parts and accessories for the "Big Three" automakers - GM, Mopar and Ford", Jeff Leonard, Classic Industries chief executive was quoted in the news release.

The decision marks an about-face from Ford Australia which had effectively withdrawn from the sport, after having repeatedly stated that the Mustang model would not be developed for Supercars racing.

The return of the Mustang, last raced at the top level by Dick Johnson, began in 2017. In an environment of relatively flat sports vehicle sales to women, Ford research shows a 10 percent gain in women buying Mustang in the last five years.

Now that the Mustang is about to turn the big Five-Four, it is also celebrating its third consecutive year as the best-selling sports vehicle in the world, according to IHS Markit.

"Mustang always has been about affordable performance, which can be traced to innovations we've made competing in racing, like NASCAR".

The new Mustang will make it's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race debut in the Advance Auto Parts Clash at Daytona on February 10, 2019.

It has taken Team Penske to four owner's championships in the last five years and carried Ricky Stenhouse Jr.to consecutive driver's championships in 2011 and 2012. The Mustang will follow in the footsteps of the Thunderbird, Taurus and Fusion as Ford's fourth cup model since 1972. Ford is still going through initial testing of the auto and says it will submit it for official NASCAR approval by this summer. The manufacturer will work with DJR Team Penske and Tickford Racing, combining the technical knowledge and expertise of Ford Performance with the experience and skill set of the teams. Once that is completed, the auto will be publicly unveiled.
