Mooresville, April 30, 2012: Roush Yates' newest engine designs are proving to be the fastest, with cars winning in the United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) and the DIRTcar Late Models Series this weekend. Chris Buescher also found power in the ARCA Series, winning the pole position in qualifying with his FR9 engine.

Chris Brown earned his fifth career win in the USMTS series on Thursday night at Rice Lake Speedway in Rice Lake, WI. Brown and teammate Kelly Shryock, both drivers of the new Roush Yates USMTS engine, started on the second row. Midway through the race, Brown began to apply pressure to leader Jason Miller and took the lead with only 19 laps to go. From there, Brown was able to cruise to the $4,000 win.

Gregg Satterlee is a new customer to Roush Yatesengines in 2012 and he isn't wasting anytime collecting wins. Satterlee took the checkers in the Precise Racing Products DIRTcar Late Models feature at Lernerville Speedway on Friday night to collect his third win of the season. With an aggressive schedule planned for his Roush Yates 410 Dirt Late Model engine this season, Satterlee is glad to have made the change to Roush Yates power.

Chris Buescher, driving the No. 17 Ford for Roulo Brothers Racing, completed a qualifying lap of 17.06 seconds to win the pole at Salem Speedway in the ARCA Racing Series. Buescher is driving an FR9 Ford Roush Yates engine this season. Saturday's pole was his fourth in 37 events since 2009 and he finished seventh in Sunday's Kentuckiana Ford Dealers 200.

Roush Yates engines will continue racing across the country next weekend in NASCAR, Dirt Late Model, Dirt Modified, Off-Road Truck, and Drag racing series. To learn more about Roush Yates engines and performance products, visit or call 1-877-798-RYPP.
