In case you missed it, the ROUSH Performance #61 took top-spot on the podium at Daytona a few weeks back, and this weekend, the team is hoping to repeat the feat in Austin, Texas. For the first time in the Grand-Am series, the race will be held at the new Circuit of the Americas race track, designed and constructed for the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix. The field will be leveled with everyone being a newbie at this one, folks.
ROUSH #61, piloted by Jack Roush Jr and Billy Johnson, is ready to pattern the corners of the novel 3.4 mile, 20-turn road course in hopes of leading the pack and continuing to rack up the points for the season. This video shows a couple of practice laps by Jack Jr in the ROUSH Boss 302R on the Circuit of the Americas, laying tease ahead for what is to come on March 9th, 2013 @ 4pm EST…the race itself.
