CONCORD, N.C. (Oct. 12, 2011) – Roush Fenway Racing will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2012 and those attending the annual Fall Fan Day at Roush Fenway’s corporate headquarters in Concord, N.C., will get a sneak peak at the new commemorative logo.
The organization will roll out a complete plan for the silver anniversary in the coming months, but 25th anniversary memorabilia is being introduced to the public via the official Roush Fenway store for the first time this week. The items will feature the official Roush Fenway 25th anniversary logo, commemorating 25 ‘winning years’ of Roush Fenway Racing in NASCAR’s top divisions.
Jack Roush launched his NASCAR operations from Liberty, N.C. in 1988 and in the subsequent 24 years built the team into one of the most successful franchise in sports history. To date, Roush Fenway Racing has accumulated almost 300 NASCAR wins, spread across 24 years and 14 different drivers, while earning five championships in NASCAR’s top divisions. No other team in motorsports racing boasts the consistent and wide ranging success of Roush Fenway Racing.
“I think our success over two and half decades speaks volumes about the organization that we have been able to put together,” said Roush. “Not only have we been able to recruit and attract the type of talent that can compete at the highest level week in and week out, but we have also been successful in hanging on to those guys for a prolonged period of time.
“We can do this because we work hard and efficient across the board and every person in this organization, from the drivers and crew chiefs to the mechanics, fabricators and painters, expects each of our teams to consistently run up front, and compete for wins and championships year in and year out.”
Roush Fenway currently leads the points in NASCAR’s top-two series. Carl Edwards leads the Chase for the Sprint Cup by one point, with six races remaining, while Ricky Stenhouse Jr., leads the Nationwide Series standings by 20, with four races remaining.
Roush Fenway Racing is NASCAR’s largest team operating in both the Sprint Cup Series and Nationwide Series with drivers Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle, David Ragan, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and Trevor Bayne.
