Ford has great plans for that 2013 Escape, but becoming a Dale Earnhardt Jr . pace vehicle at Kentucky Speedway isn’t something we likely to find out there. It seems sensible, really. The Escape is made in the Louisville Set up Plant, in which the pace vehicle was revealed on May 15 by two-time Daytona 500 champion Matt Kenneth.
As being a crossover, the 2013 Escape is kind of a truck (okay, not necessarily), therefore it is sort-of the natural fit for that June 28th Dale Earnhardt Jr . Camping World Truck NOH 225 race in Kentucky, the very first of three occasions the Escape is pacing that weekend. Ultimately, Ford’s just featuring its latest product in a track that utilizes its make of safety cars.
It’s publicity, not glory, and a myriad of automobiles are known as upon to help keep the rate lower, and that’s why, as strange like a 2013 Ford Escape pace vehicle may appear, it’s completely normal in comparison to, say, a Toyota Camry Hybrid or perhaps an electric hatchback such as the Focus Electric pace vehicle.
