Going Fast By Slowing Down
Beginning in 2011, Roush Fenway Racing began working closely with the Raybestos® team to upgrade their brake equipment for challenging short track and road course events. They've since developed a brakes technical partnership that benefits their entire stable of Fords in NASCAR® Sprint Cup® Series racing.
The Raybestos Racing brake packages equipped on the Roush Fenway Fords are engineered to provide a competitive advantage -- especially at heavy-braking tracks. With one of the most advanced caliper designs in all of motorsport, the Raybestos brake packages can provide up to a 6-pound weight savings, as compared to similar competitive brake packages currently available in NASCAR. The Optimized Structure Caliper Architecture design for the calipers includes mono-block aluminum alloy construction, integral crossover cooling and progressively sized titanium pistons. Raybestos Racing two-piece rotors provide effective, durable operation in sustained high-heat conditions thanks to the S-Groove slot design, racing-specific vane configuration and optimized metallurgy. And combined with the legendary Raybestos Racing friction compounds, it's reputation as a formidable brake setup has quickly grown -- especially in the garages at short track and road course events.
