Mooresville, NC – Roush Yates has once again cemented a reputation for producing the fastest engines on the planet regardless of the application, wtih 160 victories this year alone. When first opening its performance products store in 2009, Roush Yates created an extension of its championship-winning engine technology to include everything from engine parts to chassis components.
The popularity of the move spread so quickly that massive foot traffic and product demand required a recent expansion to a new 40,000 square foot new and race proven parts facility.
According to Bucky Gregory, Roush Yates Performance Products’ Vice President of Sales, safety products, in-general, has proved to be a significantly in-demand aspect of the company’s business.
