Mooresville, March 5, 2012: Roush Yates engines and performance products are being used throughout the world this season to bring drivers in all series of racing increased performance. After defending the title of Daytona 500 Champion last week, Roush Yates has begun dominating the dirt world with wins in Dirt Late Models and ASCS Sprint Cars this weekend.

Stenhouse Racing has gotten off to a great start with driver Jason Johnson taking the checkered flag at the Copper Classic finale at the Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Arizona on Saturday night. Johnson, a two-time Lucas Oil ASCS National Champion, took the win behind the wheel of his AccuDoc/Roush Yates Solutions 41.

"We have a great group of guys and I can't thank Stenhouse Racing and Roush Yates for this opportunity to showcase the Ford horsepower" explained Johnson during his post-race interview. "It's something unique and that's what we like to be".

Fellow Roush Yates engine driver Jared Landers led all 75 laps of Sunday's March Madness dirt late model main event at Cherokee Speedway. Landers picked up $15,000 for the unsanctioned event victory that kicked off the 2012 season. Driving for Clint Bowyer Dirt Motorsports, Landers and teammate Johnathan Davenport will be running Roush Yates engines all season long.
