The Big One's back - return to the DAYTONA 500 in this new 7-day special event, driving alongside the Stewart-Haas Racing team to earn Danica Patrick's Ford Fusion!
— What's new in Daytona 500 2017 update [v5.1.0].
The Ford Fusion (Stewart-Haas Racing) is a race version of the production Fusion. In the game, it is Stewart-Haas Racing's car for The Daytona 500: The Great American Race. In real life, this car is being driven by Clint Bowyer (No. 14), Kurt Busch (No. 41), Danica Patrick (No. 10) and Kevin Harvick (No. 4). This also marks the change of manufacturer from last year's Chevrolet to Ford since Tony Stewart's retirement. Two of Danica Patrick's liveries are featured in the game. Kurt Busch won the 2017 DAYTONA 500 in this car.
This would also be Danica Patrick's final year with Stewart-Haas Racing, as she announced that she would not be returning to the team in 2018.
Unlike older NASCAR cars, this car (along with the Chevrolet SS and TOYOTA Camry) are the first NASCAR cars introduced after the name of the cup was changed from the Sprint Cup Series to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, following a change in title sponsor for the Cup. The cars are also the first year of the low-downforce cars, which means they now have more top speed but less grip.
The Ford Fusion (Stewart-Haas Racing) is available in two series:
- NASCAR All-Star Series career series in the in the NASCAR category.
- Danica Patrick's Champion Cup bonus series in the NASCAR category.
This vehicle can be acquired for 500 without a showcase discount. It can sometimes be bought for 600 as a 'Get it Now' price, unlocking Danica Patrick's Champion Cup.
This vehicle was available to win in the following special event:
This car has three liveries to choose from:
- Official Stewart-Haas Racing livery - Former default livery on the car
- Danica Patrick's No. 10 Aspen Dental livery - can be won by completing the Daytona 500: The Great American Race, currently the default livery on the car
- Danica Patrick's No. 10 Code 3 Associates livery - can be won by completing the sponsorship collection in Danica Patrick's Champion Cup
