New Ford for Pro Stock
Pro Stock vet Morgan will switch to Ford for 2010 season
Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Veteran Pro Stock racer Larry Morgan will make the switch from Dodge and will race a Ford Mustang in the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series beginning in 2010.
We are very excited to be involved with Ford Racing and think this is a great opportunity for myself and everyone here at Larry Morgan Racing Inc., said Morgan. I am looking forward to working closely with Ford Racing Engineering in the design of new cylinder heads and blocks necessary to bring their Pro Stock program to the top of the class.
Later this season, Ford Racing will debut its 2010-model Ford Mustang body, which has already been tested in the wind tunnel.
Our goal is to have a Ford motor completed and be testing by Indy, said Morgan. I want to go into the 2010 season with a competitive engine program and a competitive race car, and I think the switch to Ford will allow me to do that.
Morgan is tied for 10th in the NHRA Full Throttle Series Pro Stock points standings after eight events. The Newark, Ohio, native has 16 NHRA wins, including nine in Pro Stock.
