“For the 2010 NMCA and NMRA season, Susan Roush McClenaghan’s She-Devil Motorsports-part of the Roush Drag Team-is fielding a freshly constructed ’10 Mustang powered by a naturally aspirated Four-Valve modular fueled by liquid propane.
“Why propane? ‘I was trying to find a way,” Susan explains, “to tie our drag racing into the other parts of the [Roush] business, and this project demonstrates a number of those pieces-our engine build services, our liquid propane technology, paint and body services… The other reason for looking at propane is I want to take our race program and really have it stand out in terms of current events, so to speak, with emphasis on alternative fuels and concern for being ecologically responsible.’
“In the foregoing quote, Susan is referring to Roush Industries’ recent forays into the business of engineering and supplying liquid-propane fuel-injection systems for the conversion of fleet vehicles (currently various Ford pickup and van platforms). The research and development invested in that fleet conversion program were harnessed in building her new race car.”
