Are you the type of person that likes to show your ROUSH® ride? Or maybe toss it around the corners on a racetrack? How about taking it for a scenic cruise? We’ve assembled a preliminary calendar of events for the ROUSH® Road Crew members that will allow you to do all these things, and more!
Listed below are several events already planned for 2010, and more will be added through the year. We are looking forward to meeting the members and having a lot of fun, hopefully you can join us at one or several of these events.
Note that some events require early registration and may only be available to limited participants. If you have questions, please contact the RRC office at (734) 466-6237 or send an e-mail to club(at)roush.com. Registration forms should be available next week for some of the early season events.

March 20 California Blackbird Airpark (Southern California)
We’ll begin the day at the Cars & Coffee show in Irvine, then cruise up to Blackbird Airpark to see the sights and have several great photo opportunities. RRC members will meet Mike Machat, former official USAF Artist and first president of the American Society of Aviation Artists as well as Doug Nelson, one of the first Blackbird "sled drivers" who is now museum director. The Blackbird Airpark is an official annex of the Edwards Air Force Flight Test Center and has on display an SR-71, A-12, an F-117 Stealth Fighter and the once ultra-secret D-21 drone. Following a personal tour we’ll head off to a lunch.
