Racing legend Parnelli Jones introduces new Ford Mustang Boss 302R

In recent news legendary racecar driver Parnelli Jones together with officials at Ford Motor Company unveiled a new generation Ford Mustang BOSS 302R in Daytona Beach, Florida. Jones helped make the original BOSS 302 a racing legend in its own right some 40 years ago with his frequent trips down victory lane.

"To compare these two cars, they can make a lot more power today, and they've certainly done that," Jones said. He also stated that "the new car is phenomenal." Jones had been given the opportunity to drive the car at Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway.

Along with the comments made by Jones, James Allison, the director of Ford North American Motorsports, also commented "It is a brand new car, a 2011 Mustang with a new 5.0-liter engine." He continued to add that "the new vehicle belongs on the race track just as its predecessor did."

Though the cars today have changed significantly from those Jones used to race in the past, when asked how the drivers of today compare to his era's racers, he stated in simple terms "what makes a race driver stand out is his will to win, his desire. There are a lot of drivers that have a lot of talent, but maybe they are lacking a little bit in desire. The ones that stand out have the most desire. You see that in the famous names of racing."
