The Generation 6 Sprint Cup Car marks the return to NASCAR’s “win on Sunday, Sell on Monday” heritage. With a distinctive body style resembling its showroom counterpart, the Gen6 Ford Fusion is delighting fans of the famous ‘blue oval’.
The Gen6 Fusion is 2.3” shorter and 3” wider than its predecessor and features improved underbody aerodynamics, making the car more stable in traffic and fostering close racing. Safety is enhanced by a forward roof band and center roof supports, reinforcing the cars’ structural integrity, along with larger roof flaps to reduce the likelihood of cars becoming airborne in crashes.
Total weight has been reduced by 160 pounds of the previous Sprint Cup car, down to a 3300 pound minimum with no less than 1600 pounds (down from 1700) on the right side. The Gen6 cars sport carbon-fiber hoods and deck lids, along with a 53” wide rear spoiler.
