Concord, N.C.(Jan. 26, 2011) – Roush Fenway Racing has announced a multi-year organization-wide partnership with Navistar. The agreement will see all Roush Fenway haulers transported to all tests and races behind Navistar’s International LoneStar Series Diesel Trucks.

“We are very pleased to welcome Navistar to Roush Fenway,” said Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark. “Performance and success on the racetrack are what we focus on as an organization. And the first step in succeeding at the track is getting there safely and efficiently. Navistar is an industry leader in power and performance and our racecars will be in good hands with the LoneStar trucks pulling our equipment to the racetracks each week.”

“I’ve seen the trucks over at the shop and they are the sharpest looking diesels on the road,” added Newmark. “I know that some of our truck drivers have expressed just how excited they are to get them out on the road this season.”
