Ford Racing says its first motor built
specifically for NASCAR will make its debut next weekend in the
Sprint Cup race at Talladega Superspeedway.
Ford says Matt Kenseth and David Ragan will both use the
"FR9."
The motor is the first new model produced by the company since
the 351 Windsor in 1991, and the first engine the company has ever
produced specifically for use in NASCAR.
The motor has been in design and production for three years.
Engine designer Doug Yates says the company believes it will level
the playing field for Ford in stock car racing.
Neither Kenseth nor Ragan qualified for the Chase for the
championship. Ford Chase competitors Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle
will continue to use their old engines.
