Roush-Yates interested in the NEW Camaro

Interesting to say the least. But Roush-Yates who has been forever known as Ford performance engine builders, is wanting to become associated with the Camaro.
Just last week I was approached by a member of the Roush-Yates team and told me that they wanted to become known more with other makes (especially the Camaro) and not just as a Ford engine builder. He has offered a club dyno-day to our club and also offered a conference room where our club could meet at if we would like to, free of charge. I found this all hard to believe and told him that it would take some time for people to get use to the fact that Roush-Yates was not just associated with Ford anymore. Still hard for me to believe, but get ready America....its true.

I agree. Not ready for that yet. But still find it interesting that they are ready to not be just solely Ford anymore. Wonder what Ford is going to think about this? lol

Really, seriously?!?!? You don't know who Doug Yates is??? Maybe you should look up NMCA World Street Finals this past weekend in Indy. A Yates powered Mustang set a shattering record being the only NMCA car to top 250MPH in the quarter mile.

Hey 2010, Yates does a lot more than just drag racing, I just happen to read that article yesterday. Yates provides ALL the motors for every Ford that races in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the new FR9 Engine. Back in the 80's and 90's he built some of the most powerful Ford engines that ever raced in NASCAR. In fact, Bill Elliot drove a Ford Thunderbird at Talladega Super Speedway to victory, after being caught two laps down. The impressive part, he passed the entire field not just once, but twice, without a caution, to go on and win, Oh, and his Thunderbird was powered by a Yates Engine.....
