May 5th -- The "One Lap of America" annual driving enthusiast event is a 9 day, 8 track, 3,500 mile vehicle endurance spectacle that kicked off April 29th and concludes June 4th. The ROUSH Performance Team entered two 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 vehicles, and the "One Lap" committee also chose a 2012 RS3 convertible to serve as the event's official media car, appearing in all ads and related media sites.

The ROUSH Performance Teams are currently on the move northward to Joliet, IL, expecting to arrive around 2 am Friday morning. A stellar performance today at the Barber Motorsports Park (Alabama) has moved the ROUSH Teams into 5th place and 12th place overall, and 1st place and 2nd place in our SSGT2 Big Bore class. Drivers Billy Johnson and our own Jack Roush, Jr., continue to push the 2012 ROUSH Stage 3's to their limits on the drag strip, road courses and auto-cross events. Other ROUSH Performance participants include Jay Velthoven, Andy Perry and Jaime Lyons.
"The ROUSH Stage 3 cars are performing extremely well," says Jay Velthoven, Marketing Director, RPP. "The cars look great and perform even better. Many ROUSH fans have supported us at the track events along the way, posing for pictures and offering encouragement during this 3,500 mile endurance event. We're all exhausted, but we're also very excited by the success we're having with our ROUSH Stage 3 Mustangs."
Over one hundred teams registered for the One Lap of America event. As of today, dozens and dozens of race teams have dropped out due to a variety of mechanical issues. ROUSH Performance general manager Gary Jurick adds, "Our 2012 ROUSH Stage 3's are ROUSHcharged to 540HP. They have our big 6-piston calipers, performance exhaust, and ride on ROUSH competition series suspension. Every performance upgrade on these RS3's is also available as an option when ordering your very own 2012 ROUSH Stage 3 from an authorized ROUSH Ford Dealer."
