Scott Pruett Celebrates Wins With Ford Powertrain Employees

Scott Pruett had never met the Ford Motor Company employees who helped him get to victory lane - so he, Ford Racing and Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates (CGR) decided to fix that.

Pruett paid a visit to the Ford Powertrain buildings near the company’s World Headquarters in Dearborn, Mich. and brought his No. 01 Telcel Ford EcoBoost Riley with him. Engineers who work on the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship effort as well as production engines consumers drive on the street every day were able to ask questions and see the EcoBoost prototype up close.

Seventy-percent of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that powered the Telcel team to victory at the 12 Hours of Sebring and in Long Beach, and a third-place finish in Laguna Seca, Calif. is production. Ford Racing, Ford, CGR and Roush Yates engineers are working together to prove that the heart of a production engine can stand up to the most intense rigors and demands of America’s toughest tracks.

"It was awesome to thank so many Ford employees who helped us get our Telcel EcoBoost prototype to victory lane," Pruett said. "The passion behind the product was great to see."

Pruett, who signed autographs and answered questions about the car, will compete in Belle Isle, Mich. in the fifth race of the 2014 TUDOR United SportsCar Championship series this weekend.
