Yea, that suxks. I goggled it:

http://www.competitionplus.com/drag-...he-end-of-2014

“Ford is not getting out of drag racing,” the statement read. “We are fully committed to continue our support of grassroots sportsman drag racing with our Mustang Cobra Jet, parts support and contingency programs. Enthusiasts and production-based racing is at the heart of what we do.

"We have, however, made a business decision to conclude our team sponsorships and support in the NHRA Mello Yello Series at the end of the 2014 season. This decision was based on an ongoing assessment of our motorsport programs’ effectiveness and the strategic alignment with our company objectives globally.”

Bring on the turbo 4-bangers!

The pencil pushers have sealed the deal to bring about the Apocalypse in Ford Performance.

No, I know Ford is not dumb enough to do that right? Who would have thought they would pull out of sponsorship of big time drag racing?.. have they not been in it since time began? I have serious concerns for a brand I used to believe in.

A quote I found on one of the articles to show someone agrees with me - yeah, I feel like I have to do that more and more like the Dinosaur I am.

"The Outsider

Just as I predicted, Ford’s idiotic 1970 pull-out of American racing is beginning to repeat itself.

They’ve already abandoned F1, Indy Car, and WRC. Now they’re dumping everything but an extremely token presence in drag racing. And Roush’s NASCAR program is increasingly uncompetitive.

It probably won’t be long until “Government Motors” torque-steers back into the NHRA vacuum. And that will again result in another generation of talented ex-Ford racers shilling for other brands, and chocking up huge numbers of wins for the wrong team . . . .

Too bad they don’t fire the idiot bean-counters at FoMoCo instead of the racers!

Ford is the master at figuring out ways to blow leads. So sad. So predictable."
