There is a reason that you haven’t been getting a lot of news from the ROUSH® Road Crew headquarters lately… We’ve been spending a lot of time working on several items for the club members and have simply been too busy to send you any messages.
So, what have we been working on? Glad you asked!
Membership Kits – We know you’ve been patiently waiting and are pleased to announce that these should begin to ship out near the end of next week! As mentioned before, the membership kits had been delayed while the logo was finalized. Once that was completed, we jumped right into the production of the hat, decal, and credentials. Many of the items are already in stock here or should be arriving in the next several days. Give us a few days for packing and shipping, but most members should be seeing their membership kits arriving in the near future!
New Events – We’ve added three more events to the schedule which now stands at 13 for the year. There are now things happening in the Chicago area, Atlanta and NYC/NJ. Registration forms will be coming shortly for these events (we are waiting for the shows to get their online forms live).
The additional events are:
August 6, 7 – Volo Museum Mustang Show (Volo, Illinois)
Saturday, August 7 is one more date you can add to the calendar as the ROUSH® Road Crew is heading to the Chicago area. We’ll start with a group dinner on Friday, August 6 and the following day caravan over to the Volo Auto Museum for the 3rd Annual Shelby Cobra/Mustang Show and see how many trophies we can take home. Besides the cars on the outside for the day, the Volo Museum houses an impressive collection of vehicles seen on the movie and television screens, military attractions, and things for the kids to enjoy. The non-automotive members of the family can spend the day browsing the antique mall. Located between Chicago and Milwaukee, this event will be a great draw for all our Midwestern RRC members. Registration forms will be coming soon.
July 3 - NJ State Fair Auto & Bike Show (East Rutherford, New Jersey)
We’ll be participating at the Meadowlands for The New Jersey State Fair Auto and Bike Show. This one day car show offers plenty of entertainment including drifting exhibitions, head-to-head burnouts, stunt bike & BMX demos, dyno runs, pre-July 4th fireworks and car-cruise Saturday night…plus over 60 attractions and amusement rides at the State Fair. We’ll get all the ROUSH® vehicles to park together and be part of the show. Any RRC members that are in town Friday night (July 2) can gather for a pre-event dinner.
September 18-19 - Motorsports Nationals (Atlanta, Georgia)
Join us in the infield of Atlanta Motor Speedway for the Motorsport Nationals, an event like no other with a wide variety of cars, bikes and trucks all in one place. This year’s show activities will include drifting, show cars, hundreds of vendors, BMX stunt shows, FMX stunt shows, burnout contests, motorcycle freestyle shows, audio competitions, live music, track cruises and more. We’ll park all the ROUSH® cars together as part of the company exhibit, and watch as a professional drift driver from Cooper Tires burns the rubber off a ROUSH® Mustang during the drift shows. Saturday night we’ll gather RRC members together for a group dinner.
Web Site – Set a bookmark for www.ROUSHroadcrew.com. Though this directs to the current interim web site, there are big plans for a club specific web page coming. And yes, forums will be included to chat with members across the country.
Membership Brochures – We are putting the finishing touches on a new full-color membership brochure. This is something that can be handed out at events or put in an envelope and mailed. If you would like a stack to keep in your car, please send an e-mail to club(at)roush.com and we’ll send some out as soon as they arrive from the printer.
RRC Grand National Event – Colorado is the place to be for the first ROUSH® Road Crew Grand National Event. The weather should be great, the scenery second to none, and we are hoping to take over Colorado Springs with a storm of ROUSH®. The show trailer will be there, as well as several ROUSH® Performance executives. Make plans to join us in June. The Grand National registration form can be found online here: http://www.roushperformance.com/docs/Club_Grand_National.pdf
In regards to this event, we recently received an e-mail from members Bernie and Grace. They wrote, “Just wanted to let you know that we have already registered both of our Roush's for the RMMR. This show is the best organized car show we have ever attended and we have been attending it since 1997. We were elated to find out that RRC was having their ‘Grand National 2010’ in conjunction with the RMMR. I'm sure everyone will have a very memorable time.”
And speaking of memories, we have a special wagon ride to a tasty western BBQ dinner planned for RRC members that is guaranteed to generate lots of memories.
