"ROUSH is excited about entering the One Lap to prove the upcoming 2012 vehicles. I consider the One Lap as being the perfect venue to showcase our new line-ups' ability to be driven to a track, put through the paces, and driven back home. The One Lap's format of 'Race, Run and Re-do' is congruent with the Roush Performance philosophy. Billy and I are looking forward to personally proving the 2012 vehicles' capabilities." said Jack Roush, Jr.

In addition to the official entries in the 2011 One Lap, Roush will be partnering with One Lap and Rosenthal Media by providing a media vehicle for the event.
