Sweet Home Alabama

Roush Fenway has won in all three of NASCAR’s major series at Talladega. The team won its first race at Talladega in the NSCS event in the spring of 1995. Former Roush Fenway driver Mark Martin won for the organization in all three series at the 2.66-Mile oval.

Tale of the Tape

Roush Fenway’s Strength Racing with Plates

The Roush Fenway restrictor-plate program has experienced a rejuvenation in recent seasons. The organization won two of the four restrictor-plate races in 2012 and have won five restrictor-plate races overall in the NSCS dating back to 2009. Most recently in the XFINITY Series, Roush Fenway drivers Ryan Reed and Chris Buescher finished first and second in the first restrictor-plate race of the season at Daytona International Speedway.

Roush Fenway Unrestricted

Roush Fenway has run a total of 385 Sprint Cup races with restrictor plates, earning 11 victories, 68 top-fives, 136 top-10s and has led 2,004 laps.

In The Points
