NASCAR Takes Propane Autogas for a Test Drive in 2011

February 15, 2011 — Fleet managers can preview of what clean, green power looks like as two of ROUSH CleanTech’s propane autogas Ford F-250 trucks hit the NASCAR track to serve in the sport’s fleet of emergency vehicles throughout the 2011 season.

The test trucks, featuring the ROUSH CleanTech logo on their back quarter panel behind the tires, are a sample of what is currently driving into the market now. ROUSH CleanTech has a growing list of fleets adopting trucks and vans fueled by propane autogas. Starting with 2012 models, the ROUSH CleanTech liquid propane autogas system will be available using Ford’s ship-thru option right the factory, on the Ford F-250 and F-350 models. Propane autogas is already the third most widely used fuel in the world.

“It’s readily available in the U.S. and it’s ready to establish itself as a workhorse on the track this season, and in fleets across America,” said Joe Thompson, president of ROUSH CleanTech.
