Ford Racing Mustang Challenge Finalizes 2010 Championship Schedule
Three double-header race meetings as part of 11-race championship
TOOELE,UT--18 November 09-- The 2010 Ford Racing Mustang Challenge season will feature a new wrinkle in the championship. Mustang Challenge officials have confirmed the final 2010 Ford Racing Mustang Challenge schedule, which will see the series feature three double-header race weekends and grow to an 11-race calendar.
Established in advance of the 2008 season in partnership between Miller Motorsports Park and Ford Racing, 2010 marks the third year of racing for Mustang Challenge, which utilizes the Ford Mustang FR500S as the competition platform riding on the g-Force R1 BFGoodrich Tire.
The inaugural 2008 season saw the series host a debut double-header at the season-closing event at Miller Motorsports Park, and the double-duty weekend proved to be a popular choice for racers, fans, teams, and families alike. 2010 will see three such double-race race meetings, starting with the season-opening event at Homestead-Miami Speedway, a mid-summer double-race weekend at New Jersey Motorsports Park, and then once again closing at the home track with a double-header at Miller Motorsports Park.
The schedule is also highlighted by two new venues for the Mustang Challenge competitors to enjoy, Watkins Glen International and Virginia International Raceway, as well as a return to Lime Rock Park as the series takes part in the traditional Memorial Day weekend event.
The championship battle, which has seen remarkable young racer Andrew Caddell score the Miller Cup honors two seasons running, will be comprised of ten rounds, giving the racers the opportunity to utilize their ten best results of the season to determine the championship standings.
"With some great racing all year long, and 26 cars on our grid to close out the season at home, we were really excited about the year and now we are focused on having another great season of racing in 2010," said Mustang Challenge Series Director Lynda Randall. "We are hoping that by using their best ten finishes for the championship, we are able to offer some flexibility for our racers. And we know that with new tracks like Watkins Glen and VIR on the schedule in addition to the places we've raced before, that our teams and drivers are going to be really excited about getting to the track and having some fun again next year."
