Home Sweet Home

Michigan International Speedway is Roush Fenway owner Jack Roush’s ‘home track.’ Located about an hour drive from Roush Industries in Livonia, Michigan has been one of the organization’s most successful tracks, earning a total of 23 victories across the three major NASCAR touring series.

 

Welcome to Detroit City

In 198 starts at Michigan, Roush Fenway has recorded 13 wins, 55 top-five finishes, 99 top-10 finishes and has led 2,451 laps. Greg Biffle earned the organization’s most recent victory in June 2013 after starting 19th and leading 48 laps. Biffle’s win was also the 1,000th NASCAR victory for Ford Performance.

 

Roush Vs. Everybody

Roush Fenway’s 13 wins in the NSCS at Michigan are the most of any track on the NSCS schedule. Five different drivers have earned victories for Roush Fenway at the two-mile oval with former driver Mark Martin and current driver Biffle both taking the checkered flag on four separate occasions. Former Roush Fenway drivers Matt Kenseth (two), Carl Edwards (two) and Kurt Busch (one) have also gone to victory lane for the organization in Michigan.

 

Consistency in the Motor City

Michigan ranks first overall among all tracks that Roush Fenway has competed on in the NSCS in top-five finishes, top-10 finishes and in average finish among tracks that they have run two or more races at. Roush Fenway has recorded 55 top-fives, 99 top-10s and has an average finish of 13.9 at the two-mile oval.

 

One Away from the Century Mark

Roush Fenway is just one top-10 finish away from 100 top-10 finishes at Michigan.

 

Racing in Road America

In 18 NASCAR XFINITY Series starts at Road America, Roush Fenway has recorded one win, two top-fives and four top-10s. Former Roush Fenway driver Edwards earned the organization’s lone victory at the Wisconsin road course in 2010 after starting from the pole and leading 35 laps.
