This Week in Ford Racing
February 4, 2010

Last November the first developmental version of the new Ford Pro Stock engine more than met expectations when it made its debut in Pomona, Calif. Noted Ford Motor Company engine engineer, Mose Nowland, who has been with Ford since 1955 and has been involved in many high-profile projects both in and out of racing, led the development of the new engine. The engine, which competed in the two Cunningham Motorsports Ford Mustangs in the NHRA season finale', will make its return to Pomona during the 50th Annual NHRA Winternationals next weekend.

ANY UPDATES ON THE ENGINE SINCE THE LAST TRIP TO POMONA IN NOVEMBER? "Actually Pomona was an advance test- trip for us, and after Pomona we had a list of things that we wanted to improve on. We've gone to work and have improved on those items. We have made some power progress. We're very satisfied with our recent testing in Bradenton, FL, it confirmed that our revisions did yield positive results and we're very happy with where we are now."

HOW ARE YOU FEELING ABOUT THE ENGINE OVERALL? "I feel very good about it. I just can't say enough about our teams and their willingness to work so hard and get that thing developed. I'm very proud of them and I'm very satisfied with our progress in the short time that we have been working on this engine."

WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR THIS SEASON? "Regardless of our performance in Pomona, or Gainesville, in this business development never stops. It's a continuing endeavor to get better and better. To take the engine and keep within the rules of NHRA, to just keep tuning it and doing things until you can make the engine a little bit more powerful, a little bit more torque available. You just never quit looking at opportunities for improvement."
