Ford is revamping its NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ahead of the 2022 season.
Along with new materials, the design of the newest F-150 is embodied in the car to make it look more like a civilian pickup.
“The Ford F-150 is the pride of the Ford truck lineup, so we are delighted to have the opportunity to update the racing version to showcase the dynamic front end design that truly is the F-150. We can’t wait to get our teams up and running next February in Daytona, ”said Mark Rushbrook, Global Director of Ford Performance.
Developed at the Ford Performance Technical Center in Concord, North Carolina, the pickup gets a composite bonnet instead of a steel one, as well as a revised exterior. With new styling cues inspired by the NASCAR Truck Series F-150 on the road, it looks more aggressive.
All new styling changes not only reflect the production F-150, but also help improve aerodynamics. All improvements in this area are now being tested on the simulator.
The debut of the new racing car will take place in February at the Daytona International Speedway. Since debuting in 1995, the F-150 has won 107 race victories and also won two championship titles with Greg Biffle in 2000 and Matt Crafton in 2019.
