While this site's emphasis is on Ford drag racing, there is a Ford powered car in the upcoming 24 Hr Daytona race and I was wondering if anyone knows what is going on down there? I heard that the Ford is a N/A 5.0 Modular built by Robert Yates. If so, isn't this the first "official" application of the Mod engine in professional racing other than some special classes in drag racing? Also, is this a version of the 400 HP Mod 5.0 crate engine that is supposed to be available from Ford? The rules claim that all engine components must be available to the public (right!). Anyone have any technical details on this entry? I also see that Brand-X has an entry powered by the LS6. Does this mean we are going to be 50 cubes or more down again? Inquiring minds need to know!

Hey, we like all forms of Motorsports here on the racing forum.
As long as it's "Powered by Ford"!
I'll see if I can look up some info on the engine for you. There was one on display in the FRPP booth at the PRI show.
