By now you have probably heard that the official name for the new club is ROUSH® Road Crew. It’s a fun name that will lend itself to lots of great automotive-related things as the program gets up and running.
But did you realize that the “Road” in ROUSH® Road Crew stands for “ROUSH® Owners and Drivers”… pretty cool, huh?
This, as you will see, is a time when a lot of RRC news will be coming out. To help keep the members informed, here is an update on the status of things:
Logo – With the name now decided, our graphic arts team has begun working on the club logo. This, of course, is needed for a great many things including all the items in the membership kit. We anticipate being able to unveil this on schedule in the next two or three weeks.
Membership Kits – When the logo is finalized we will be able to begin ordering the items that are included. There should be no slippage yet on the announced timeline of a mid-March shipping date, but we will keep you informed.
RRC Event Calendar – We’ve been working on a great number of events that should really be fun. The first batch will likely be announced within 24 to 48 hours, so keep an eye on your inbox. More events will be announced through the year as well, so there will be plenty of opportunities to get out and meet other members and have some fun with the cars.
RRC Web Site – We’ll begin development this week on a dedicated web site for the ROUSH® Road Crew. It will take a little time to create, so continue to be patient. Forums for RRC members will be part of this site, so keep those keyboard fingers limber and ready for online chats.
RRC Facebook Page – It’s up and running already! If you are on Facebook, do a search for ROUSH Road Crew and become a fan today. We’ve got four fans already, would you make it five?
Memberships – Coming in quickly still. We’re bumping at the 200 member count which is great considering it’s only been three weeks that people have been able to send in applications. Memberships have been received from 40 states, and we’re international with RRC members in Canada and Mexico. Aloha to our first member from Hawaii!
Jack Roush Dealer Appearances – A schedule will be announced very soon, likely by the end of the week.
RRC Administrator – We’ve hired Tracey Juliette to help with the administrative and event duties related to the ROUSH® Road Crew activities. If you have any questions, she should have the answers. You can reach Tracey via e-mail at club(at)roush.com or (734) 466-6237. Typically, you’ll be able to reach her at the office Monday – Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Eastern).
Newsletters – We’re planning on sending out future updates to members in the form of a newsletter. Templates are being developed.
