The countdown to this year’s Daytona 500 is underway and when the cars unload for Speedweeks there will be a new Ford team on the track as Stewart-Haas Racing officially joins the manufacturer in 2017.
The 2017 season marks the debut of Clint Bowyer as driver of the No. 14 Mobil 1 Fusion as he takes over for the retired Tony Stewart. Bowyer joins a team that includes 2004 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup champion Kurt Busch, 2014 series champion Kevin Harvick and Danica Patrick.
The four SHR Fusions will bring the total number of Fords in the field every week to 13.
