” ‘I never saw a Mustang I didn’t like,’ Jack Roush tells us as we stroll past the line of Mustangs in his Livonia, Michigan, auto collection. Of course, that statement incorporates not only Mustang automobiles, from the ’64 1/2 hardtop he bought brand-new to the ’11 NASCAR Nationwide Mustangs being developed by Roush Fenway Racing, but also World War II-era P-51 Mustang fighter planes. Over the past four decades, Mustangs have played a large role in Roush’s success as drag racer, businessman, and race team owner.
“While most of us recognize Jack from his racing activities, starting in the 1960s with his Gapp & Roush drag racing efforts with then-partner Wayne Gapp and stretching to his current NASCAR Sprint Cup teams, he also owns a number of successful businesses under the Roush Enterprises umbrella, including Roush Industries, a freelance engineering firm that does specialized work for auto manufacturers, and Roush Performance, which builds Roush Mustangs and offers a line of performance parts. His companies employ over 2,000 people.”
