Roush Club Seeking Five

47465Jpg
Now that Roush Fenway Racing has their first Daytona 500 victory in the bag, the team is now looking forward to the possibility of making it five straight NASCAR Sprint Cup Series wins in the Auto Club 500 at Auto Club Speedway.

Ever since the first of two dates for Auto Club Speedway was moved to the second race of the season in February, Roush Fenway has gone to Victory Lane.

Daytona 500 winner Matt Kenseth holds the most wins among the team at ACS after capturing back-to-back checkered flags in 2006 and 2007.

Carl Edwards was the last Roush Fenway driver to win at the 2-mile speedway after taking his first Auto Club 500 last year when he passed Jimmie Johnson with 13 laps-to-go.

"I feel really good going to California on the Sprint Cup side," Edwards said. "It's the one I've been waiting for. Daytona is what it is, but California's the first one that we get to see how well we worked over the winter. I just really like the track a lot."

Greg Biffle began the February event streak when he captured the checkered flag in 2005. Since then, he has scored two runner-up finishes.

Although Jamie McMurray and David Ragan have yet to visit Victory Lane at Auto Club Speedway, the two drivers hold solid average finishes of 14.6 and 13.8, respectively.

"I'm ready to get back to a normal race weekend and California is a great track to be heading to," Ragan said. "It's a big, wide track which is pretty easy to pass on and we've always had good cars there. Plus Roush Fenway has always run really well there so that just gives me even more added confidence going into this weekend."

Overall, Roush Fenway has won six races at ACS with Mark Martin capturing the first in 1998. The team has scored 24 top fives and 37 top 10s and has led 1,309 laps.
