Winning Pocono Style

Roush Fenway has four wins at Pocono, including Biffle’s victory there in July of 2010. Former Roush Fenway driver Edwards earned the organization’s first victory at Pocono in June 2005. Roush Fenway went on to sweep the season’s events that year at the 2.5-mile track with former driver Busch winning in Aug. 2005.

Runner-Up

Roush Fenway has finished in the second position 13 times at Pocono with six different drivers. All in all, Roush Fenway has finished first or second 17 times at the Triangular track.

Victorious at the Triangle

Roush Fenway driver Trevor Bayne earned the victory in the June ARCA Racing Series event at the “Tricky Triangle” after starting from the pole position and leading 42 laps. Bayne took home the win in his first career start at Pocono and his first start in the ARCA Racing Series.

Going for the Sweep

NASCAR XFINITY Series championship leader Chris Buescher is looking for the season sweep this weekend at Iowa Speedway.  Buescher took the green flag from the fourth position in the Spring event at Iowa and paced the field for 94 laps en route to the victory.

Is This Heaven? No, It’s Iowa

Roush Fenway has earned five victories, 10 top-five finishes, 15 top-10 finishes and an average finish of 11.6 at Iowa in the XFINITY Series. Buescher is looking to join Roush Fenway teammate Ricky Stenhouse Jr. as drivers who have swept the season’s races at Iowa. Stenhouse earned three-consecutive victories from 2011-2012.

In the Points

Roush Fenway currently has all four XFINITY Series drivers inside the top 10 in the championship standings. Two-time race winner Buescher remains first, with teammates Elliott Sadler, Bubba Wallace and Reed ranking fifth, sixth and 10th, respectively.
