FORD power plant doing good

Mooresville, NC (March 5, 2011) Roush Yates Engines commanded the front two rows in Friday's Kobalt Tools 400 qualifying at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Ford drivers earned the first four starting positions for Sunday's race after leading practice earlier in the day. Matt Kenseth, Marcos Ambrose, Carl Edwards, and Greg Biffle all took their Fords to the top of the leader board to execute the best qualifying effort in the history of Roush Yates Engines.



"We've had such a great start to the 2011 season," said Doug Yates, CEO and Chief Engine Builder at Roush Yates Engines. "Finishing 1-2-3 at Daytona, putting Carl Edwards on the pole in Phoenix, and the astounding speed we've shown in Vegas make me very proud of all the engineers at Roush Yates and Ford Racing. We've worked really hard in the off season to see gains on the racetrack and I think there are even more great things to come."



Drivers Matt Kenseth and Carl Edwards have noticed the increased horsepower of their Roush Yates engines at each of the first three tracks this season. Kenseth's record breaking pole at Las Vegas is the fifth in his career.



"I have to give Doug Yates and the engine shop a lot of credit because I think we have more power than we ever had last year," said Matt Kenseth, pole sitter for Sunday's Kobalt Tools 400. "This is our first full season with the FR9 and we started running better on it toward the end of last year. In Phoenix our engine ran really well and now here this weekend you see all the Fords up toward the top."



"It is good that the first two rows are Fords," said Carl Edwards. "That is a testament to how hard our guys are working at the shop and Doug Yates and everyone with the FR9 engine they have done an amazing job. We talked about earlier that we wanted to see how we ran in this first 1.5 mile that would be a little bit of a test for the rest of the season. So far it looks really good."

Ya buddy , Ford win :thumbsup:

Mooresville, NC (March 6, 2011) Carl Edwards drove his #99 Scotts EZ Seed Ford Fusion to Victory Lane on Sunday, capturing the second win for Roush Yates' FR9 engine in only three races. Ford cars were the fastest on the track all weekend long. After posting a 1-2-3-4 qualifying effort, Roush Yates Engines and Ford Racing were thrilled to come home with the win.

"This is an exciting win for Roush Yates Engines," said Doug Yates, CEO of Roush Yates Engines in Mooresville, NC. "We ran great all week long. I think this says a lot about our program and how we plan to run at 1.5 mile tracks throughout the 2011 season. I want to thank Ford again for their support as we continue to excel with the FR9 engine."

This is Carl's nineteenth career Sprint Cup Series win and the seventh win of only fourteen races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Roush Fenway Racing. Fellow Ford drivers Matt Kenseth, Greg Biffle, and Marcos Ambrose each lead during Sunday's Kobalt Tools 500.
