Roush Fenway Looks to Light Up the Sky in Daytona After battling road courses across the country, Roush Feneway and NASCAR makes their first return trip of the season, heading back to Daytona where the 2011 season kicked off in February.
Summer Time in Daytona Roush Fenway has won four times in the Cup Series at Daytona, with three of the wins coming in the summer race. Jeff Burton was the first Roush Fenway driver to break into the win column at Daytona, taking home the checkered flag in 2000. Greg Biffle did the honors again for Roush Fenway in 2003 and Jamie McMurray won at DIS under the lights in July of 2007. Roush Fenway’s other DIS win came via Matt Kenseth’s 2009 Daytona 500 victory. Mark Martin won the pole at Daytona at the organization’s second summer start at DIS in 1989.
Roush Fenway Sprint Cup at Daytona Roush has made 163 Sprint Cup starts at DIS, winning four times, while running to 31 top fives and 57 top 10s. Roush Fenway has completed 92.3 percent of its 27,218 laps attempted in Cup action at DIS, while averaging an 20.9 finishing spot.
Looking For Win No. 1 Despite 118 wins in the Nationwide Series, Roush Fenway is still looking for its first NNS win at Daytona. Roush Fenway has made 61 starts at DIS, with 14 top fives and 31 top 10s, but the organization’s best finish at Daytona is second, (accomplished on three occasions, including last season by Carl Edwards.)
