Page: 1 Links
Ford Racing Performance Group (FRPG) is partnering with the National Auto Sports Association (NASA) in the creation of a new Ford Focus Spec class for the 2006 season. FRPG Focus program manager Andy Slankard said "the Focus Spec class is designed to showcase Focus performance parts and to provide an entry level competitive racing environment that is affordable."

The Ford Racing NASA Spec Focus class is open to all model years and trim levels of Ford Focus including the SVT Focus and vehicles equipped with the 2.3L engine. Parts allowances and restrictions equalize the field based on different model combinations.

Class payouts include $500 to each regional champion in all NASA regions with starting grids of 3 or more Spec Focus competitors. The class also pays $1000 to the winner of the National Championship race at the NASA Championships at the Mid Ohio Sports Car Course on September 17, 2006.

Ford Racing Performance Group will also feature competitors on fordracingparts.com utilizing photos and competitor information gathered in the Focus Spec class registration process. Registration for the Ford Racing NASA Spec Focus class is required for contingency eligibility. Registration is available on-line at http://www.fordracingparts.com/userreg/welcome.asp . The class requires a minimum of four registrants by September 1st, 2006.

The recent success of the Ford Racing FR500C Mustang program was instrumental in prompting FRPG's involvement in the Focus Spec class. "We wanted to be involved in Focus motorsports at the racer's level similar to what we had accomplished with the FR500C. NASA was able to provide us the ideal venue to showcase the inherent racing capability of the Focus and allow us to showcase performance part offerings." - Jamie Allison, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager.
