Four different Roush Fenway drivers have visited NASCAR victory lane in the past two weeks
CONCORD, N.C. (May 27, 2011) – A great deal has been made of the phrase ‘winning’ over the past two months, but for Roush Fenway’s diverse and talented stable of drivers, winning has become fast reality. In the past 10 days, four different Roush Fenway drivers have visited a NASCAR victory lane, hoisting the coveted hardware high in the air as their teams celebrate around them.
“I think it says a lot about the organization that we have been able to put together,” said team owner Jack Roush. “Not only to be able to recruit and attract the type of talent that can compete at the highest level week in and week out, but to be able to hang on those guys for a prolonged period of time. Once they reach a certain level of success and accolades, they have options and we have been able to hang onto a diverse group of talented drivers that can consistently run up front and compete each week at this level.
“We can do this because we work hard and efficient across the board and we expect all of our teams and drivers to be competitive and each of them fully expects to run up front, and compete for wins and championship year in and year out.”
Furthermore, five of Roush Fenway’s six drivers have taken home a NASCAR trophy in 2011. In addition, Greg Biffle won segment one and led a race-high 46 laps in last week’s Sprint All-Star Race. No other stable in motorsports racing can boast this type of success with as many different drivers, competing at such a high level, while – winning.
Throw in Jack Roush Jr., and Billy Johnson’s win at Virginia International Raceway in the Grand-Am CTSCC Series last week, and team owner Jack Roush has a plenty to smile about as the NASCAR Series heads into the Memorial Day weekend.
Success across the board is nothing new for Roush Fenway. In 24 years of racing, the organization has visited NASCAR victory lane 289 times with an impressive 14 different drivers.
