The final race of the season for the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge at Miller Motorsports Park on September 12th will mark the end of the three-year-old series.  The series was a partnership between Miller Motorsports Park and Ford Racing with significant sponsorship support from BFGoodrich.  The Mustang Challenge was first announced during the SEMA show in 2007 and proved to be sustainable series with lots of fan support.  Over the three years of operation racers from all age groups competed against each other including established names like Jack Roush Jr., Andy Lally, Bucky Lasek and professional drift king Vaughn Gittin Jr.

When Mustang Challenge Series director Lynda Randall broke the bad news to drivers and teams it was met with sadness.

“We are disappointed to not continue what we started with the Mustang Challenge,” said Series Director Lynda Randall. “But we should old our heads high, as this was a tremendously successful program and we were fortunate to get to be a part of what really became a family. Our drivers raced hard during the day and tended to laugh hard--together--when they were out of the cars. We will miss the great mixture of competition and camaraderie, as well as the great racing, that we came to love in Mustang Challenge. This was not the decision that we wanted to have to make, but we wanted to let our racers know what the future held and we want to close the year out with some very big races at Autobahn and of course at Miller.”

Those wondering what will happen to all the FR500S Mustangs built for the series will be happy to know the first-ever production vehicle to hit the track will also be eligible for competitions in a variety of series which will be announced at a later date.
