Ford Racing EcoBoost prototype sets new Daytona speed record: 222.971 mph!!!

The old record was set back in 1987 by Bill Elliott in a NASCAR cup car during qualifying for the Daytona 500, at 210.364 mph.

Ford's new Daytona Prototype smashed that record, recording a lap of 222.971 mph, completing the circuit in just 40.364 seconds.

Ford Racing's new EcoBoost Daytona Prototype will compete in next year's inaugural TUDOR United SportsCar Championship, the merged series that brings American Le Mans and Grand Am together

Decent looking prototype.  Not the grossly dysproportionate cars that the current DP cars are.
