2013 Roush Stage 3 Mustang

Roush Performance will be entering their recently launched 2013 Stage 3 Mustang in the 2012 Tire Rack One Lap of America event scheduled for May 4th through 12th, 2012. As the One Lap website states, “The Tire Rack One Lap of America event is the toughest 8 days of racing featuring the fastest street-legal cars on America’s most challenging racetracks!” The Roush Performance engineering team has packed impressive horsepower, styling and handling performance into the redefined 2013 Roush Stage 3 Mustang. The supercharged 5.0L engine now produces a whopping 565HP and 505 ft/lbs of Torque. The all-new Roush Stage 3 graphics and body kit presents a menacing stance and appearance, and the Roush race-inspired suspension puts the power to the pavement while on the track or street.

“I can’t think of a better, more comprehensive vehicle endurance test than the Tire Rack One Lap event,” says Roush Performance #61 driver Jack Roush, Jr. “Pushing the vehicle through the One Lap skid pads, drag races, road courses and the thousands of road driving miles in between the tracks can add up to tremendous forces being put on the car and driver. I thoroughly enjoyed competing in the 2011 Tire Rack One Lap event, along with my co-driver Bill Johnson. It’s a grueling racing event, for sure.”

“The 2013 Roush Stage 3 Mustang competing in this year’s Tire Race One Lap event is the exact vehicle that can be optioned out and ordered through a Roush Authorized Ford Dealer,” says Tim Wheeler, VP Sales and Marketing for Roush Performance. “No additional power-adders, calibrations or racing modifications are part of this One Lap package. We think the 2013 Roush Stage 3 Mustang – right from the Dealer — can compete extremely well under these tough track conditions, and then provide a comfortable ride to the next track event 300 miles away.”

Roush Performance is pleased to announce that Evan Smith (Editor, Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords) and his co-driver Jeff Lacina (Owner, Track Guys DETROIT MUSCLE | REDEFINED Performance Driving Events) will be piloting the 2013 Roush Stage 3 Mustang during this year’s event.

“Evan and Jeff are both accomplished drivers that know their way around a Mustang, and how to push a performance vehicle to its limits out on the track,” says Jack Roush, Jr. “I’ve been to the track with Evan before and know that he is an excellent racer in his own right. We’re excited to have them experience our 2013 Roush Stage 3 Mustang’s power, handling and comfort while representing Roush Performance over the course of this marathon event.”
