AMS/Roush Fenway History
Roush Fenway competed in its first NASCAR event at AMS on March 20, 1988, finishing 31st after getting
involved in an early crash. Just three years later the organization claimed its first win there in the fall of ‘91 with the No. 6 Ford. Roush Fenway won its first of seven NXS races at the track in the spring of ’97. Roush Fenway’s top outing at AMS came in the fall of 2005, when the organization placed four cars inside the top seven, with three cars finishing in the top five including race winner Carl Edwards. Altogether in the two races at AMS in 2005, Roush Fenway posted six top-five finishes and two wins.
All but one of Roush Fenway’s Cup wins at AMS came in the fall, with the only spring win coming in 2005. Three of RFR’s seven NXS wins came in the fall.
