Roush Fenway at Texas
In addition to the 18 wins, RFR has posted 76 top fives, 127 top 10s and nine poles, while leading 3,478 laps in combined NASCAR action at Texas Motor Speedway. RFR boasts wins in all three major series at Texas (9 Cup, 8 NNS, 1 Truck).

Roush Fenway Sweeps Inaugural Weekend at Texas
RFR won both the first NASCAR Sprint Cup (Jeff Burton) and NASCAR Nationwide Series (Mark Martin) races at Texas in 1997. In fact, Roush Fenway won the first two NSCS races at Texas and three of the first four NNS races at the track.

Jack Roush; Texas Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Member
Based on the strength of RFR’s numerous accomplishments at Texas Motor Speedway, team owner Jack Roush was inducted into the Texas Motor Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.

Sweeping Up
Just as in the inaugural races in 1997, RFR swept both the NSCS and NNS events at Texas in 2012’s spring races with Greg Biffle (NSCS) and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. (NNS) doing the honors. Carl Edwards (NNS) and former RFR driver Matt Kenseth (NSCS) teamed to sweep both events at Texas in the spring of 2011.

Four drivers have won for RFR across multiple NASCAR platforms at Texas; Martin (1 NSCS, 3 NNS), Edwards (3 Cup, 2 NNS), Kenseth (2 NSCS, 3 NNS) and Biffle (2 NSCS, 1 Truck). Stenhouse will look to be the fifth RFR driver to accomplish the feat this weekend, following his 2002 NNS victory at TMS.

Winning at Texas
A total of seven different drivers have tallied the 18 NASCAR wins at Texas for RFR. All three of RFR’s current NSCS drivers have won at TMS (Edwards - 3 times, Biffle - 2 times and Stenhouse in the NNS). Trevor Bayne became the seventh RFR driver to win at Texas with his NNS win there in the fall of 2011.

‘08 Sweep
Carl Edwards swept the 2008 NSCS races at TMS, leading a total of 335 laps in the two events. He is one of only two drivers to win both Sprint Cup events at Texas in the same year.

Looking for the Lead
Bayne scored his fifth top-10 finish in as many starts this season at California. In doing so, the Daytona 500 winner moved into a tie for the NNS points lead. Bayne will look to take over the top spot this weekend at TMS, the site of his first career NNS win in 2011. Edwards enters the weekend third in the NSCS point standings; nine points outside of first.
