Customers who purchase a 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 will be able to push the limits of the performance vehicle at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.

Ford on Thursday announced "Boss Track Attack" days, a program to provide comprehensive hands-on track experience for Boss 302 owners.

The program will be offered by Team Mustang and Ford Racing instructors at the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School at the high desert track.

The street-legal 2012 Boss 302 was announced last summer as a performance vehicle, but drivers may not get a chance to really test the limits of the car--legally and safely.

"This is the first program of its kind from Ford. We're so proud of the new Boss 302 that we wanted to offer owners the opportunity to stretch their legs--and carve corners--on one of the coolest tracks in America," Mickey Matus, marketing manager, Ford Racing, said in a press release. "The Boss 302 is such a legendary nameplate, and our latest version is such a tremendous, fun-to-drive car that we wanted to ensure this exclusive group of owners learn all they could about it, and experience its capabilities in the fun, controlled environment that Miller Motorsports Park can provide."

The late Larry H. Miller was a fan of Ford and Shelby cars--several vehicles from his personal collection are on display at the Larry H. Miller Total Performance Museum. Participants of Boss Track Attack will be treated to a private reception and dinner the evening before hitting the track.

Boss owners need not bring their own cars. Miller Motorsports Park has a fleet of track-ready Boss 302s on hand for this driving experience, Ford said in a press release.

Boss Track Attack includes a classroom session with drive instructors, a practice session in car control, cornering, braking, and vehicle dynamic techniques. Then the program continues with on-track driving, including lead and follow exercises, instructor ride-alongs and hot laps.

The event finishes with participating owners receiving a graduation pack from the Ford Racing team.

There are 15 individual sessions available between now and the end of the year. Owners have a year from receiving their car to register for the program.

Dates for sessions in 2012 will be determined in due course and announced on the Boss Track Attack Web site. Participants can pay for a second day at the driving school, or to bring a guest to attend with them, Ford said.

2012 Mustang Boss 302 owners can register for their complimentary Boss Track Attack sessions slot on the Boss "Track Attack" Web site, or by calling 435-27-SPEED.
