ROUSH Releases Details on P-51B Ford Mustang

ROUSH P-51B Ford Mustang

Following closely to the hoof prints of the ROUSH P-51A, ROUSH Performance keeps the legend of victory alive and well with the debut of the 2009 P-51B Mustang.  This aviation-inspired Ford Mustang is set to take on the enemy with an overwhelming force of 51 numbered production units.  The P-51B Mustang exhibits the same power output as the P-51A (510hp / 510 lb-ft tq) and has all the associated upgrades (forged internals, fuel system, clutch, brakes, ECM) required to support this increase over a base Ford Mustang.  The crown jewel, of course, is the supercharger unit providing the boost for the P-51B: the next-generation TVS2300 ROUSHcharger setup.  What’s most exciting about this newest release from ROUSH is that this edition will be equipped with the new Cooper RS3 ultra-high performance tires as well as the Stage 3 suspension package–believe me, I can personally attest that this setup is sure to bring a huge grin to anyone who sits behind the wheel of a Mustang equipped as such!  So c’mon, take a close look at the hi res shot of the P-51B, as well the official Press Release and spec sheet from ROUSH Performance.

Roush No. 59 Finishes Just Short of the ‘W’ in Season Finale

Roush No. 59 Comes up Less than a 1/4 second Shy in Season Finale

Close, but no cigar.  Sounds negative at first, but when you look at the opportunities seized, the Roush racers in the #59 Ford Mustang did quite well in the KONI Challenge season finale at Virginia International Raceway.  The team of three drivers (Jack Roush, Jr., Dean Martin, and Ryan Phinny) piloted the pony to a very successful finish, less than a quarter second shy of sweet victory.  After six grueling hours on the track, the Roush team held up strongly against the competition, with methodic position gains and overcoming chafed tires near the end.  Near the finish and after an ugly caution was lifted, Martin was forced to give up the lead to Rehagen Racing teammate Matt Plumb, who was just out with fresh rubber on his #60 Mustang.  Martin still kept with Plumb down to the finish and closed out the second closest finish in KONI Challenge history, a mere 0.208 seconds behind.  There is much more to the exciting event in store, so keep reading the full story in the official Press Release from Roush.
