The RY45 Captures Early Season Points Title at Volusia

Scott BloomquistMooresville, NC (February 26, 2014) Scott Bloomquist claimed his first career DIRTcar Nationals Late Model point’s title Saturday night at Volusia Speedway Park. The RY45 made it clear there were “No Weak Links” for Team Zero as it made it’s debut for impressive 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th and 6th place A-Main finishes during Speedweeks. These outstanding results marked the second consecutive year of point’s titles that were victorious with power engineered by Roush Yates.

Bloomquist was excited with his new engine program and chassis saying: “It has been a tremendous week and the drivability was the smoothest anyone could ask for on a slick track.” The RY45 features a lower center of gravity allowing for better handling characteristics. By having the ability to tune the RY45 for slick conditions, Scott was able to command a 4/10 of a second lead dominating by half of a track during his heat race.

Not only did the RY45 power Bloomquist to clinch the point’s title, but it also gave Scott the fastest lap time of 16.726 during qualifying Saturday. Bloomquist expressed his eagerness stating: “Next race we will be pushing the RY45 even harder, watch out!”

Over the past four years Roush Yates has learned what was needed to provide winning engine combinations for the top teams in Dirt Late Model racing. Armed with this knowledge, Roush Yates began developing a new engine platform in 2013. The goal was to bring innovative engine components to the market based on the company’s winning heritage. That goal was validated with this week’s successful competition debut of the RY45. This is the first in a series of products that have been engineered, tested and race proven for the engine builder and racer.
