The four-car ROUSH® drag racing team started the 2008 NMRA season with a strong showing in the Sunday, March 9 elimination rounds at Bradenton (Fla.) Motorsports Park, but it didn’t always look like it. In fact, during the pre-race shake-down runs on Thursday and Friday, three of the cars struggled with major mechanical issues.

The ROUSH quartet was led by Susan Roush-McClenaghan who took her car to the finals of the ROUSH Modular Muscle class, the second time in her career she has advanced to the trophy dash. Unfortunately, her car ran a 10.49 in the finals, faster than her 10.51 breakout, so she walked away from Florida as the runner-up but very high in the point standings.

“This really is a terrific way to start the season,” Susan said following the finals. “You always want to go to the finals and win, but making it this far is a major boost in the points and for our team confidence. Our crew guys worked really hard this weekend. They continually thrashed on all the cars and kept us in the races.”
