2006 RFR Sweep Race Occurrence
In February of 2004, Roush Fenway accomplished one of the hardest feats in NASCAR, sweeping all three events at California Speedway. Mark Martin won in the truck series on Friday, followed by wins by Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth in the Nationwide and Sprint Cup Series. Despite the degree of difficulty, RFR went on to accomplish the feat twice more in 2006 at Bristol and Homestead.

Getting it Done...
Greg Biffle has won three times in the Nationwide Series at California and once in the Sprint Cup Series. Carl Edwards has won in both the Cup and NNS as well at Fontana. Former RFR driver Mark Martin drove a Roush Fenway Ford to victory lane in all three series’ at California as well (1998-Cup, 2005-NNS, 2006-Truck). Historically four drivers have driven RFR Fords to victory lane at California in multiple series’ (Biffle, Edwards, Kenseth, Martin, Busch).

Strong In Southern Cal
Roush Fenway Racing has placed at least one car in the top 10 in 21 of the 22 NASCAR Sprint Cup races at California Speedway, including two in the top six last season. In addition, Roush Fenway has scored a total of 28 top fives and 48 top-10 finishes at the two-mile quad oval, and led a total of 1,440 laps in Cup action.

Nationwide Effort
Roush Fenway has won a total of six races in the Nationwide Series at Auto Club Speedway and has finished inside the top 10 with 60 percent (59) of its entries. In fact, Roush Fenway has twice swept the Nationwide Series at California (2004 and 2005) and completed 97 percent of its laps run in the series at the track.

Winning all the way around...
Overall, Roush Fenway Racing has won 15 NASCAR races at Auto Club Speedway (7 Cup, 6 Nationwide and 2 Truck).

Ricky of the Year
Former two-time Nationwide Series champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. has been solid and consistent during the first four weeks of his Sprint Cup rookie season, posting finishes of 12, 13, 18 and 16. He has completed all 1,283 laps attempted in 2013 and sits 11th in the points, while leading the NASCAR Sprint Cup rookie of the year standings. Stenhouse is looking to become RFR’s 13th NASCAR rookie award winner.

After four races in the Sprint Cup Series in 2013, RFR’s Greg Biffle, Carl Edwards and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. sit at fifth, eighth and 11th respectively in the standings.
