Mooresville, NC (Jan. 15, 2010) --
Roush Yates Engines continues their dedication to lead in power and performance in announcing a newly-formed partnership to build race engines for NHRA Pro Stock drag racer Justin Humphreys and RaceRedi Motorsports.
Roush Yates Engines, renowned for providing winning engines in the NASCAR circuit, is once again expanding their program to encompass another form of motorsports. This partnership with Humphreys takes Roush Yates Engines into the powerful and competitive realm of NHRA Drag Racing.

The Ford-based company is committed to success on the race track and feels this latest move is a testament to how far their program has progressed. In 2009, Roush Yates engines powered more than 50 victories in a variety of asphalt, dirt and marine racing competition.
Roush Yates Engines has high expectations for this newly-formed partnership, and is proud to support Humphreys. This groundbreaking venture is the first of its kind between a prominent NASCAR engine builder and an NHRA Pro Stock Team.
“Having an up and coming driver like Justin Humphreys commit to run Roush Yates Engines is great for our team,” said Doug Yates, CEO of Roush Yates Engines. “Introducing our engine program into drag racing is something we have been working very hard to achieve. Justin’s willingness to commit to our engines, combined with our desire and dedication to win, will make for succesful teamwork.”
Justin Humphreys is the 2005 NHRA Sport Compact Racing Series Modified Champion. He believes his involvement in a powerful engine program like Roush Yates is exactly what his career needs. Humphreys drives for his family-owned RaceRedi Motorsports team based in Maryland. He earned his first NHRA Pro-Stock victory in 2008, and is very excited about starting the 2010 season in a partnership with Roush Yates Engines.
“The manpower, resources and the Roush Yates top-notch facility won me over right away,” said Humphreys. “After visiting their legendary facility, it didn’t take long for me to realize how much they put their heart and soul into building winning engines. My team and family felt this partnership is exactly what we need to be more competitive in the NHRA Pro Stock ranks.”
