Las Vegas NV, November 1, 2005 - In 1966, Jack Roush started a lifelong love affair with fast cars and drag racing. Now, almost 40 years later, Roush Performance Products is taking the Roush name back to the drag strip with a new line of heavy-duty parts for drag racing-the Roush Performance Competition Parts line.
Jack Roush announced the Competition Parts line in the Roush Performance Products booth (24701) at SEMA. Roush also discussed plans for Roush Performance and its grassroots drag racing effort with the National Mustang Racing Association (NMRA). In the coming racing season, Roush will field a number of Mustang and other Ford race cars that will be used to develop the new line of competition parts that will incrementally increase performance.
The new Roush Performance Competition Parts line began with the intercooled ROUSHcharger system for the 2006 Mustang, the non-intercooled ROUSHcharger for the 2006 F-150, an intercooled ROUSHcharger system for the F-150, the Mustang Short Throw Shifter, high performance suspension upgrades, and the short-pulley system for ROUSHchargers.
"This is the next step in the evolution of Roush Performance Parts (RPP) components, performance-enhancing pieces that have been developed on Roush Performance Products' own vehicles in a drag racing environment," said Ryan Bunn, Roush Performance Parts Marketing Manager, "Our parts are race-tested so that the customer is always getting the strongest, highest-quality part."
