Rear spoilers were added to the Trans-Am Mustangs. Were they effective on the short courses? Probably not but they looked great on the cars on the track and the street versions.

The Bud Moore Team won the 1970 Trans-Am Championship for Ford. The Trans-Am Boss 302 Mustangs proved that the Ford could win a manufacturers trophy. At the end of the 1970 season, Ford cancelled all racing efforts. Tighter government smog controls and higher costs of production and development weren’t worth the cost of racing anymore. It cost Ford over a million dollars to win the 1970 Trans-Am Trophy.
