Roush Fenway Goes Pink for Breast Cancer Foundation at Talladega
Both Kenseth’s No. 17 Ford Fusion and Greg Biffle’s No. 16 3M Ford will feature pink colors for this weekend’s race at Talladega. The color change is part of breast cancer awareness month and a partnership between RFR, Talladega and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Talladega Victory Lane
All-in-all Roush Fenway has won in all three of NASCAR’s major series at Talladega for a total of six victories, including three in the Cup Series, two in the Nationwide Series and one in the trucks. Two of Roush Fenway’s six Talladega wins came in 2009. Roush won its first race at Talladega with a Cup win in the spring of 1995. Former Roush Fenway driver Mark Martin won for Roush at Talladega in all three series.

Roush Fenway Unrestricted
Roush Fenway has run a total of 350 Sprint Cup races with restrictor plates, winning 10 times, while totaling 65 top fives and 123 top 10s, and turning almost 150,000 miles and leading 1,843 miles with the restrictor plates in Cup action.

Restrictor Plate Resurgence
The Roush Fenway restrictor-plate program has been strong in recent seasons. Matt Kenseth won his second Daytona 500 in four seasons in February. David Ragan won for RFR at Daytona in the summer of 2011 while Carl Edwards finished second in the 2011 Daytona 500, to fellow RFR teammate Trevor Bayne (driving the Wood Bros. Ford). Jamie McMurray posted Roush Fenway’s last Talladega win, battling Kenseth for the win down to the final restart in the fall of 2009.

Edwards Scores RFR’s 700th Top-Five Finish
Carl Edwards scored Roush Fenway’s 700th career top-five Sprint Cup finish last weekend at Dover. The team scored its first-ever top-five finish at Bristol on April 10, 1988, when Mark Martin finished second in the No. 6 Roush Fenway entry in only the team’s sixth NASCAR start.
