ROUSH® Drag Racing Team

Reflecting back on a trying and rewarding 2008 NMRA season, the ROUSH Drag Racing Team saw just how well they rolled through adversity and finished up a very successful season.

With almost everyone on the team trying to conquer challenges with parts breakages and other technical issues, they kept their heads up and pushed forward into the competition after wrenching through the first few days of drag racing.  Susan Roush-McClenaghan took the wheel and entered the battle for the title in the Performance Modular Muscle class. We’ve talked about the ROUSH racing teams (both drag and road) all year and are happy to let you in on the details from the season finale.
