Wow. Surprised by that because Ford seemed to be either moving their investment to Penske as their top team, or getting Jack Roush out of RFR. Not to mention Tony being a Chevy lifer...

Guess Tony was tired of having his cars being beat by the Penske Fords in raw pace. Can't blame him.

Question is, what is of Roush now. Penske has turned into the banner team for Ford, but Roush is a Ford man through and through as well. They take a tumble further down in importance with a what should be strong Stewart-Haas team?

If I were to hazard a random guess here and I am probably wrong, Hendrick didn't like their cars being beat by their customer team...

Ford has said Roush isn't going anywhere. It's mostly Ford WANTS a title. Chevy's been the top dog for the last 11 years in the constructors.

Ford's last cup title was in 2004 with Kurt. It was their 2nd straight after Kenseth's in 2003. I can see why they would want to have the best.

Penske is a good horse, but that's just a two car operation, and Roush hasn't been the same since 2012 and losing Kenseth and Edwards didn't help either.

Apparently, they'll be using Roush-Yates engines. They'll be getting the lesser engines from a team without any good ones.

You do realize Penske uses Roush-Yates engines right?

All Ford engines are Roush-Yates.

That's what happens when you got a team with a driver who's about washed up, another who was a one hit wonder, and another in which we wonder why he hits everything

In fairness Scott, they could probably be miles better then they are if Jack's stubbornness didn't mitigate any potential for growth the team has.

Best description of Roush I've ever heard. Laughing

(Although I wouldn't say Biffle has quite hit washed up yet)

That was all of Roush? I thought he was just describing Trevor Bayne

I'd say Trevor Bayne's more of a never-was.

Regarding the posts above about Roush, I thought Ricky Stenhouse Jr. was all of the above.

Back to topic, I was kinda surprised that SHR is switching to Ford. Business is business, I guess.
