On Wednesday, Ford’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers headed to the manufacturer’s test track in Dearborn, Mich., to test drive the 2013 Ford Fusion. Keep in mind, this was the production 2013 Fusion, not the 2013 NASCAR model set to debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February.
“I was particularly impressed with Fusion on the slalom course because of its traction control technology,” Roush Fenway Racing driver Greg Biffle said. ““I tried to get the car out of shape and it was saying, ‘No, no, no.’ We don’t use traction control in NASCAR, so it amazes me how well a computer can take care of you when you’re driving aggressively on a closed course through cones. It really does help you stay on the road.”
