Roush Fenway has started 222 combined NASCAR races at PIR, collecting 16 wins (6 NSCS, 8 NNS, 2 CWTS), 71 top fives and 119 top 10s, while leading 3,822 laps.

Winning in the Valley
Roush Fenway has won at Phoenix in all three of NASCAR’s major divisions, with the organization’s first win coming in the fall of 1993. Roush Fenway won the second-ever Nationwide race at PIR in 2000, and the organization has won four of the last seven NNS events at PIR. In addition, Greg Biffle claimed Roush Fenway’s 100th overall Nationwide win at Phoenix in 2009 and Carl Edwards won there that fall to give Roush Fenway the sweep. All in all, six drivers have won NASCAR races for Roush Fenway at PIR. In addition, Carl Edwards swept Phoenix in the fall of 2010, winning both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races.

Sprint Cup Effort at PIR
Roush Fenway has started 124 Sprint Cup races at Phoenix, while finishing inside the top 10 with almost 50 percent of the entries (54). In addition, Roush Fenway cars have led 2,091 laps and driven to victory lane on six occasions.

Nationwide Effort at PIR
Phoenix is one of the strongest tracks for Roush Fenway’s Nationwide program. In 62 starts, RFR has won eight times, while finishing inside the top five almost half of the time (24) and inside the top 10 an impressive 71 percent of the time (44), while leading 1,397 laps. Roush has won four of the past eight NNS events at Phoenix.

2013 Roush Fenway Lineup
The 2013 RFR lineup is anchored by veteran NASCAR champions Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards. The duo will be joined in the Sprint Cup Series for RFR by rookie Ricky Stenhouse Jr. In the Nationwide Series, RFR will field two entries with Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne in the No. 6 and action sports legend Travis Pastrana in the No. 60. In addition, Bayne will again run a limited Sprint Cup Series Schedule in the Wood Brothers’ No. 21 Ford.

Ricky of the Year
Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will compete for Roush Fenway’s 13th NASCAR rookie-of-the-year award in 2013. Stenhouse won the rookie of the year award in the Nationwide Series in 2011. He will look to became the third RFR driver to win two rookie awards (Biffle and Edwards NNS and Truck) and only the second to win a NASCAR rookie award in the Sprint Cup Series.

After 25 “Winning Years”, over 300 wins and numerous championships, Roush Fenway Racing remains as ‘Driven” to succeed. To drive the point home, RFR launched its 2013 “Driven” campaign at the 2013 NASCAR Media Day. The ‘Driven’ program will include new and increased fan interaction, as well as partner promotions and special events throughout the season.
