Ford Racing Mustang Challenge for the Miller Cup Grows to 10 Races for 2009

Tooele, UT (9 October 2008) --Ford Racing Mustang Challenge for the Miller Cup officials were pleased to reveal the 2009 schedule on Thursday as the series builds on a successful inaugural 2008 season and grows to ten races in 2009.

The 2009 Mustang Challenge season will open up with a double race weekend on March 14-15 at Homestead-Miami Speedway in tandem with the KONI Challenge event, then follow that up one month later with a second doubleheader set at Barber Motorsports Park as part of the 45th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang event on April 18-19, which is expected to see over 100,000 enthusiasts visit the Alabama track through the weekend.

New Jersey Motorsports Park will host round five on May 2-3 as part of the Rolex Sports Car Series and KONI Challenge event, before the series travels West and rejoins the Rolex and KONI runners at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on May 16-17 for round six on the picturesque Monterey peninsula track.

Mosport International Raceway will then play host for round seven as part of the NASCAR Canadian Tire event on June 13-4 before the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course sets the stage for round eight the following weekend. Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois will be a new entry on most drivers' racing resume for the penultimate round of the 2009 championship on July 25-6 before the series reconvenes at the home of the Mustang Challenge at Miller Motorsports Park for the final race of the season on September 19-20.

The 2009 Mustang Challenge schedule reflects the growing partnership between Mustang Challenge and Grand-Am, which also sanctions the series.

"Mustang Challenge had a fantastic inaugural season this year, and we're pleased to be a part of the series' growth in 2009," said Grand-Am President Roger Edmonson. "Grand-Am's partnership with Mustang Challenge is one we are tremendously excited about, and look forward to a strong future together. My hat's off to them for what was achieved in their very first season, and I know that next year will be even better."
