LIVONIA, Mich. - The NMRA is the leading proponent of Ford drag racing in the county and they have seen the potential in the new ROUSH Drag Pak Mustang, the first car manufactured in more than three decades which can go right from the showroom to the drag strip.
Now, the NMRA has made it even easier to go racing with this ROUSH pony car by offering all 50 buyers a free one-year membership into the NMRA and a free race entry at the NMRA Ford Nationals event of their choosing in the ROUSH Modular Muscle category.
"The ROUSH Drag Pak Mustang is a unique vehicle that fits the NMRA mold perfectly and we want to encourage the 50 owners of this exclusive vehicle the opportunity to come and race the car and see how it can perform on the drag strip," said Charlie Harmon, president of ProMedia Events which is the home of the NMRA Ford Nationals. "We know that once these ROUSH owners have a taste of competition and see how much fun an NMRA race can be they will be hooked for life and we are quite pleased to give them a race entry and membership into our organization."
The ROUSH Drag Pak Mustang was the vision of Jack Roush who personally oversaw the development of the car which was tested extensively with more than 200 passes on the drag strip at Milan (Mich.) Dragway and in NMRA competition last year.
"When we returned to having a drag racing program last season I challenged the team at ROUSH Performance to build a car that can be driven to the track, have the tires changed to slicks, and perform on the drag strip," Roush said last year as the car was introduced at the SEMA Show. "This Drag Pak Mustang is the culmination of those efforts." Roush has a fondness for drag racing that goes back to when he began his motorsports career in the late '60s with the "Fastbacks," a group of Ford engineers that pooled their money to go drag racing.
The ROUSH Drag Pak Mustang is available exclusively through Brandon Ford in Tampa, Fla. The inventory of ROUSH vehicles can be found online at or by calling (813) 246-3673 for details. As previously announced, there will only be 50 of the ROUSH Drag Pak Mustangs manufactured which makes them as collectible as they are competitive.
Based in Livonia, Mich., "The Art of Performance Engineering" takes place at ROUSH Performance. In addition to the Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3 Ford Mustang and F-150 styling, handling and performance upgrades, a complete line of performance parts and crate engines are offered.
