NASCAR Drivers Test Redesigned 2013 Ford Fusion [Video]

2013 Ford Fusion Picture

Ford Racing’s NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers got the opportunity to take the redesigned 2013 Fusion production car for a spin around Ford’s Dearborn Testing Grounds. Among the drivers were; Trevor Bayne, Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards, Casey Mears, and Matt Kenseth. Each driver was given the chance to get behind the wheel of the Fusion and take it for a few laps around the makeshift obstacle course designed to challenge the Fusion’s handling and maneuverability.

“I was particularly impressed with Fusion on the slalom course because of its traction control technology,” said Greg Biffle, two-time winner this season of the No. 16 3M Ford. “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,” Biffle added. “It really does help you stay on the road.”
