Mooresville, NC—Roush Yates Engines, engine builders extraordinaire and winners of this year’s Daytona 500, has just announced an amazing 360 Sprint Car contest: Winners powered by a Roush Yates engine at this year’s 42nd Western World Sprint Car National Championships at Tucson, AR, Nov. 19-21, will also WIN A NEW ROUSH YATES ENGINE. This contest extends to the winners of both winged and non-winged categories.
“We’re real excited about Roush Yates’ involvement with the ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series at Tucson’s USA Raceway in our season-ending event, the 42nd Annual Western World Sprint Car Championship. Roush Yates’ promotion with the winged and non-winged teams at the Western World speaks loudly about the commitment they have placed in the future of the ASCS Sprint Car Dirt Series,” said ASCS founder, Emmett Hahn.
Roush Yates Engines recently entered the 360 Sprint Car scene with Chuck “the Cobra” Hebing. Hebing achieved an early victory at Autodrome Drummond, Quebec. “This new engine has a long power curve, sustaining peak horsepower from 6,500 to 8,500 rpm—exceptional power all the way through,” Hebing commented.
When news of this contest emerged yesterday, Kevin Montgomery, promoter at USA Raceway, was delighted: “The Western World Championships is shaping up to be one of the premier events of 2009. We are excited to have Roush Yates, an auto racing icon, as part of this Championship Race. Their involvement speaks volumes about the prestige of the 42nd Annual Western World Championships.”
