Mooresville, March 26, 2012: Roush Yates' dirt engines were in full force this weekend winning races across the country in sprint cars and dirt modifieds. ASCS National Sprint Car point leader Jason Johnson took his Sprint 360 car to victory lane at the Devil's Bowl on Saturday and Charles Davis Jr. won Friday's sprint car race at Arizona Canyon Speedway Park. Jeremy Payne captured Roush Yates' first modified win of the season with a victory at Speedway in Springfield, MO.

Jason Johnson emerged from a wild battle with Jeff Swindell and Sam Hafertepe, Jr. on Friday night to hold onto his championship status and win his first Lucas Oil ASCS presented by K&N Filters race of the season. He followed up his win with another victory in Saturday's $6,000-to-win Devil's Bowl Spring Nationals Finale. Johnson left Mesquite, Texas still in control of the ASCS National Sprint Car Series points.

Two-time ASCS Canyon Region Champion Charles Davis Jr. captured a win in the rain delayed race at Arizona Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, AZ. Davis took his Roush Yates powered sprint 360 engine to victory lane after leading all 30 laps from the pole in the first event of the season. Davis drives for Massey Motorsports in the No. 50 car.

Roush Yates captured their first dirt modified win of the season thanks to driver Jeremy Payne. Payne drove his modified to victory lane on Saturday night in the Midwest Late Model Racing Association's race at Speedway in Springfield, MO. Saturday night was the first night out for Payne and his new Roush Yates-built USMTS modified engine, and he couldn't be happier with the results.

Roush Yates engines will be in full swing again next weekend participating in all types of racing from dirt to off-road trucks. To view all of Roush Yates' powerful engines or to learn more about their performance products, visit or call 1-877-798-RYPP.
