Propane Wins Again: Roush Drag Team

Donnie Bowles Wins Again!

Don Bowles, who won the first race of the season running his Roush Propane Mustang in Bradenton, FL, won for the second time of the year.

The Roush Drag Team was at the Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, IL on July 16. Don Bowles, who won the first race of the season running his Roush Propane Mustang in Bradenton, FL, won for the second time of the year. Bowles currently leads the NMCA Open Comp point standings and races a 2005 ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang which was converted to run on liquid propane. This car, along with a 2010 ROUSH Stage 3 driven by teammate Susan Roush McClenaghan and sponsored by AmeriGas/ Metro Lawn, are an offshoot of the kits that ROUSH Performance uses to convert gasoline powered Ford pickups and vans to run on clean burning propane.

Susan Roush McClenaghan said; “With my #1 qualifying in Open Comp, a perfect light in E1 Mod Muscle and another win for our propane cars…all in all a very successful weekend.”

“The liquid propane fuel injected engines performed flawlessly throughout both weekends and were the picture of consistency over a wide variety of changing weather conditions. Consistency and reliability are the keys to success in this form of racing and these liquid propane powered engines continue to prove themselves and demonstrate the technology is viability within the severe duty environment of competitive drag racing,” Bowles said.

The Chicago, South Shore and Wisconsin Clean Cites were also at the raceway to promote propane as an alternative fuel to reduce our dependency on foreign oil. Susan Roush McClenaghan gladly displayed the Clean Cities Logo’s at the race. Many came to see the propane vehicles being displayed, 2 Metro Lawn/Roush Clean Tech Trucks, a propane mower, an AmeriGas Propane Service Truck, an ICOM Dodge Charger and a Schwan’s Delivery Truck that has the largest fleet on propane.
