Susan Roush McClenaghan participated in the PRI (Performance Racing Industry) trade show featuring racing and performance products and services in Orlando, Fla., December 2, 2011. Roush McClenaghan won the Hawk Performance Open Comp Championship in the NMCA Series this year and displayed the winning ROUSH Stage 3™ Mustang that was converted in 2010 to run on liquid propane. The drag car gained a large amount of interest at the show where Roush McClenaghan and her crew spoke about the many advantages and capabilities of utilizing propane in racing. She discussed that liquid propane, with an octane rating of 105, produces comparable performance results to the popular high performance racing fuel C14 at considerably less cost, which is one of the reasons it was an ideal fit for a motorsports applications.

After the show Roush McClenaghan was awarded the prestigious championship award for her division at the annual banquet for the NMCA series. Her family, along with her team and sponsor Heritage Propane, shared the victory with her at the event.

"I am very honored and humbled to have such an opportunity to celebrate with all the people who have worked so hard to make this a truly winning team. Our sponsors, team members, friends and family make it possible to put our heart and soul into every effort. Tonight that effort shined with success,” Roush McClenghan said.

This past year the Roush Drag Team welcomed Heritage Propane as a key sponsor. Heritage promotes propane autogas throughout the country in fleets, municipalities and landscape equipment applications.

“Susan has helped us demonstrate the power and ease of using propane with her successful season. Being part of the Roush family has been a big win for our employees and our customers. We are all proud and congratulate her,” said Ed Varney, vice president, Heritage Propane.

J. Sells, director engine fuels, Heritage Propane added, “It is a great opportunity for us to be involved in providing alternative fuel for drag racing. This is a critical part of our mission to use propane as viable and environmentally friendly fuel.”

The 2012 NMRA/NMCA season will begin in Bradenton, FL., in March.
