Christmas is alive and well at Roush Fenway Racing. Wednesday night was Ladies Night as fans gathered to visit the Roush Fenway museum and of course to check out various products showcased by 16 local vendors.
“Tonight is the first of what we hope to turn into an annual affair,” said Andrea Perry, Roush Fenway Racing Event Marketing Manager. “The museum was in full Christmas mode and we heard lots of positive comments about the event.”
"The entire NASCAR community is mourning the passing of Jim Hunter. As a new team owner from the outside joining NASCAR in 1988, I was welcomed and befriended by Jim and his wife Ann in the early days before I was settled, and as I was getting my feet wet in this sport. Past that, Jim remained a friend of whom I could seek sage advice and badly-needed sympathy on more occasions than I can recall. His departure has diminished us all."
