Ford has always been very competitive in any sport that they have entered. These days they compete in the World Rally Championships, Nascar, various touring car championships as well as a multitude of subordinating rally events. The blue oval has that racing heritage and what makes it so special is that you can look around the streets and see your hero’s car park everywhere. This week makes it a clean sweep for Ford in each discipline racking up a total of five victories in two days.
Here’s the run down:
