The new, seventh-generation Ford Mustang will compete in next year’s NASCAR Cup Series. 

The automaker revealed the latest Dark Horse motorsport variant today, which will make its racing debut at the series’ Clash at the Coliseum early next year.

The Mustang has been racing full-time in NASCAR since 2011, competing in the Xfinitiy Cup.

It began competing in the Cup Series in 2019, winning 18 races the following year. 

Joey Logano won the driver’s championship in 2022, piloting a Mustang to victory, and Ford hopes to build on those successes with the new race car.

NASCAR launched the Gen 7 race cars in 2022 to lower costs for teams and make the cars look more like their road-going counterparts.
