Ford Performance Racing School sponsoring Chase Briscoe at Daytona Road Course race


Ford Performance Racing School reunites with Chase Briscoe in the NASCAR Cup Series after a successful nine-win partnership in the NASCAR Xfinity Series last season. Ford Performance Racing School is the only school to wear the Ford oval, and Ford is the only full-line vehicle manufacturer to offer product-focused experiential driving programs exclusively to the owners of its complete line of performance vehicles, from cars to trucks to SUVs.

Briscoe looks to better his top-20 finish from last weekend’s season-opening Daytona 500, his first Cup Series start, as he and his fellow competitors return to Daytona to compete Sunday on the 3.61-mile, 14 turn-road course layout. Briscoe has one Xfinity Series start on the road course at Daytona, but the 29th-place result was not indicative of his early race success. After leading twice for a race-high 26 laps and winning Stage 2, Briscoe was caught up in an accordion-like, multicar accident at the entry to turn one as those around him overshot the corner. He was in fourth place as the field entered the first left-hand turn, and Briscoe tried to clear the frontrunners by overtaking them on the outside. But the top-three cars each ran wide, pushing Briscoe off the track, and as he came off the turn and onto a straight before the International Horseshoe, he got sandwiched between two other cars. This sent Briscoe spinning into the grass, whereupon the nose of his Ford Mustang sustained heavy damage. The team was unable to make repairs and Briscoe had to retire his racecar with a disappointing 29th-place finish. It was his first DNF (Did Not Finish) in 35 races, a streak dating back to July 5, 2019 when Briscoe was collected in a multicar accident during the Firecracker 250 on Daytona’s 2.5-mile superspeedway.
