The sport truck will be driven by reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski on Wednesday, August 14 at Michigan International Speedway. The following day, the F-150 Tremor will be the center of attention during the Tremor Talk web chat hosted by Brian Bell, marketing manager for the F-150.

“Michigan International Speedway is one of the fastest tracks on the NASCAR circuit, so the vehicle pacing the field also needs to be fast,” said Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing. “The 2014 Ford F-150 Tremor, with its light-weight configuration, EcoBoost engine and launch-optimized performance, is well-suited for this job.”
