Roush Fenway Racing (originally Roush Racing) is a racing team competing in NASCAR racing. As one of NASCAR's largest premier racing teams, Roush runs teams in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series, and formerly in the Camping World Truck Series and ARCA RE/MAX Series.
Roush first entered NASCAR competition in 1988, but had competed and won championships in various drag racing and sports car racing series since the mid-1960s. The racing business was originally a small branch of co-owner Jack Roush's successful automotive engineering and road-racing equipment business based in Livonia, Michigan.
The NASCAR operation, based in Concord, North Carolina, has since become the cornerstone and centerpiece of the company, winning back to back Sprint Cup Series Championships in 2003 with driver Matt Kenseth and 2004 with driver Kurt Busch. In the Sprint Cup Series, the team fields the #16 3M Ford Fusion for Greg Biffle, the #17 Best Buy, Zest, Fifth Third Bank and Valvoline Ford Fusion for Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., and the #99 Fastenal, Aflac, Subway, Best Buy (Geek Squad), Kellogg's, Ortho, and UPS Ford Fusion for Carl Edwards.
In the Nationwide Series, RFR fields the #6 Cargill and NOS Energy Drink Ford Mustang for Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. full-time and the #60 Ford for Trevor Bayne part-time. Roush also fields a team in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge sponsored by Roush Performance with the car being driven by both his son, Jack Roush, Jr. and Billy Johnson.
Since its inception, Roush has competed exclusively in Ford brand automobiles. Currently, the Ford Fusion competes in the Sprint Cup, the Ford Mustang template is used in the Nationwide Series, and the Ford F-150 was used for the Camping World Truck Series.

Famous quotes containing the word racing:
“Upscale people are fixated with food simply because they are now able to eat so much of it without getting fat, and the reason they dont get fat is that they maintain a profligate level of calorie expenditure. The very same people whose evenings begin with melted goats cheese ... get up at dawn to run, break for a mid-morning aerobics class, and watch the evening news while racing on a stationary bicycle.”
—Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
