This car was actually the first "FORD to pace the Daytona 500 since 1970"



Other than that, there has been plenty of Fords pacing nascar since 1970, even a fusion hybrid in 2008

I think they used that grabber 500 for the arca race, gatorade duel and natiowide race the weekend of the daytona 500, but the 2011 GT above was the true pace car and thus the first to pace the daytona since 1970.

I know, your devastated totalcrap

Not devastated at all. Read the title, says "paces the field at Daytona". Never said the Daytona 500. Read it wrong maybe? "For the first time since 1970 a ford paces the field at Daytona". Im sure there are other fords that have paced a Nascar race after 1970, but I don't believe at Daytona.

The official pace car for the 500 in 2009 was the Camaro. In 2010 the 2011 GT actually paced the Daytona 500 field, which is the first Ford since 1970 to pace the main event.

lol!

So in essence the GT500 paved the way for the 5.0 hehe
