Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and Carl Edwards are the three remaining Ford drivers still alive in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, which begins its Eliminator Round tomorrow afternoon at Martinsville Speedway.

All of them desperately want to be the one to give the Blue Oval its first Cup championship since 2004 (Kurt Busch, Roush Fenway Racing). But with Ford being based in Detroit, they also want to add to the Motor City’s rich sports legacy.

Detroit and Michigan connections are plentiful among Ford’s trio of Chasers. Keselowski himself is a native of Rochester Hills, a northern Detroit suburb. He and Logano’s boss, Roger Penske, has been a champion of and contributor to Detroit’s ongoing rebuilding process. And Edwards’ boss, Jack Roush, has major business interests in the region.

With all of that in mind, Ford Racing has produced a hype video that is one part mission statement and one part valentine to the city that has contributed so much to the American automotive industry.
