Ford‘s Mustang Challenge series will come to an end later this year after the final race at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah this September. The Mustang Challenge, which started in 2007, didn’t have a long life, but the FR500S will still be eligible to race in other series.
No official reason was given for the series’ cancellation, but Series Director Lynda Randall said “We are disappointed to not continue what we started with the Mustang Challenge,”but we should hold our heads high, as this was a tremendously successful program and we were fortunate to get to be a part of what really became a family. Our drivers raced hard during the day and tended to laugh hard–together–when they were out of the cars. We will miss the great mixture of competition and camaraderie, as well as the great racing, that we came to love in Mustang Challenge. This was not the decision that we wanted to have to make, but we wanted to let our racers know what the future held and we want to close the year out with some very big races at Autobahn and of course at Miller.”
