So it's only natural that the National Auto Sports Association has finally awarded the Focus with a racing class all its own, the Ford Focus SPEC class, for the 2006 season. The class is open to all model years and trim levels, which of course includes the SVT, but also the much more ubiquitous model with the 2.3-liter engine. Typical entrants throw about $6,000 to $10,000 into their car to prep it for competition, all for the chance to win $500 for being the best in their region or a cool grand for being the fastest Focus in all the land. Hmm... wonder if there's an Unlimited class. If so, we're showing up in this.
