Cougars and other Mercurys have been highly successful in road racing. Let's take a look at some of the race cars...

The 1967 Trans Am series. Cougars finished a very close second to the factory-backed Mustangs. The Camaros, 'Cudas, Firebirds, etc, were cellar dwellers in the 67 series.

The closest finish in Trans-Am history was at Green Valley in 1967, when Dan Gurney's Mercury Cougar barely beat teammate Parnelli Jones' Mercury Cougar.

The 1967 NASCAR Baby Grand National series. Cougars brutalized the competition, winning the series by a large margin. No other cars even came close.
