On May 7th, 2015, The Roush Automotive Collection hosted its first Open House Event of the season, drawing a crowd of local automotive enthusiasts and their beautiful cars. The second Open House of the season is quickly approaching, and will be taking place on Thursday, June 11th, from 5 pm to 8 pm. If you attended the first event, you’ll be even more excited to hear what we have in store you for this time, including an autograph session! No pre-registration is required for the Open House (unless you are attending the ROUSH Performance Facility Tour).
This Open House event, like the first, features a car cruise-in and door prize drawings, with the addition of a second ROUSH Performance Facility Tour during the day, drag race simulator, Mustang pinball machine, and a ROUSH engine build competition.
Our autograph session will feature NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers Chris Buescher, Ryan Reed, Elliot Sadler, Darrell (Bubba) Wallace Jr. and the one and only Jack Roush. They will meet with fans and sign autographs from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public. Please call the Event Hotline for details (734-779-7276).
Here’s how it works: There will be three lines. Jack Roush will be in Line 1, Darrell (Bubba) Wallace Jr. and Ryan Reed will be in Line 2, and Elliot Sadler and Chris Buescher will be in Line 3. Each line requires a designated wrist band. Choose 1 driver line only. For this event only, if you get through the line and there are still wristbands available, you may then choose another wristband for a different line. Limit one item per driver, and one limit for Jack Roush. Wristbands will be distributed beginning at 4:30PM to those in line, and 75 wristbands will be passed out for Line 1, and 150 each for Lines 2 and 3, for a total of 375 wristbands. You MUST have a wristband to receive signatures, however, wristbands do NOT guarantee signatures. Again, this autograph session is free of charge and line procedures may be subject to change.
The Roush Automotive Collection Retail Store & Museum will be open from 9:30 am – 8:00 pm for your shopping needs and for free self-led tours. Come early and get what you need for the autograph session and enjoy wandering the museum. A selection of authentic race car parts are available for purchase. Treasure hunters will find race car body panels from the NASCAR ROUSH Fenway teams and race-driven tires. Race-driven tires are only $20 each and are great to have autographed! A drag race simulator will also be available to test your reaction time. See if you have what it takes to be a drag racer! Try out our new Mustang pinball machine as well: $0.50 for one play and $1 for three plays.
You’re invited to bring your classic or special interest vehicle to display along Market Street in the designated areas.
During the Open House, register for a chance to take home a door prize! Drawings will be held at 5:30 pm, 6:30 pm and 7:30 pm. Door prize giveaways include a pair of MIS Grandstand seat tickets for the Quicken Loans 400 on June 14th, 2015, as well as a variety of ROUSH Fenway memorabilia. Contestants must be present to win. One entry per person per night. Free to enter! Multiple entries in door prize drawing will lead to disqualification for all prizes.
Sign up to tour the ROUSH Performance Products Facility (separate from the Roush Collection Museum). Shuttles leave from the Roush Collection to transport guests to the ROUSH Performance Facility where guests can see firsthand what goes into producing a ROUSH Performance vehicle. The tour will be held at 10:00 am and 1:00 pm, last approximately an hour and a half, and seating is limited to 20 people per time slot; to ensure your place on the shuttle, please pre-register by calling 734-779-7290.
Two teams from the ROUSH Engine Build Department will compete side-by-side to see who can execute a complete engine build-up, including a live test run, in the quickest time. With all this fun you’ll be sure to work up an appetite, so a local vender will be on site selling hotdogs, chips, ice cream, pop, and water. Please join us for great cars, great food, and quality family entertainment during the Roush Automotive Collection’s second Open House of 2015!
Designated parking will be available around the Roush Automotive Collection and is free. Market Street is north of Plymouth Road between Newburgh and Levan Road. The third and final Open House of the 2015 season will be on August 13th at our Livonia, Michigan, facility. All events are open to the public free of charge.
