    Be sure to tune in this Sunday, Nov. 22.

    The Shelby GT350 will be pacing the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead Miami Speedway for the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship with Joe Hinrichs behind the wheel.

    Thanks for sharing.
    A Ford misprint in the press release as it's actually the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup championship.

    I like the fact that it's not an R. Watch for a feature on the car during the race coverage.

    Dang it. I was hoping to go this for Jeff Gordon's last race. Would have been icing on the cake to see some other GT350s. Went to 2 races earlier this season.

    Unfortunately this is the only Ford that will cross the finish line ahead of the pack. Ford didn't have a very good year in NASCAR. Only team Penske did well and was obviously taken out by Toyota. Roush is in big trouble as a team, and seems lost chassis wise compared to other teams ie. JGR, Hendrick and team Penske.

    Are you kidding? Ford absolutely dominated this year. The #22 and the #2 cleaned house.

    As I see it , Nascar should make Lagono elgible for the run for the championship at Homstead since he had a commanding lead when he was intentionly taken out by a noncontender at M-ville. He was on his way to winning the race with just a few laps left and then was wrecked. It would only be right and fair. As it stands now , one of the most winning drivers of 2015 will not be running for the championship at Homstead.

    Agree and the rain shortened race didn't give the 22 or 2 a chance to win it.

    Nope they only do that for the Chevy teams. Remember the "cheating" scandal by I think it was K. Petty. when they let Jeff Gordon into the chase, 13th man.

    Your reading comprehension is not that good. I said that Team Penske did well.
    But Ford as a whole didn't do well.

    I was hoping the pace car would stay out and compete with the rest of the field. Oh well, it was good to see it out ahead of all those inferior cross plane Cup cars... :D

    Not unless they've changed engine rules recently.
