On the eve of the 2009 season opener of the NASCAR Nationwide Series in Texas, Jack Roush and the Railroad Commission briefed fleet managers on ROUSH Performance’s F-150, 250 and 350 pickups powered by propane, a clean-burning alternative fuel that is available “right here, right now.”
All three Railroad Commissioners of Texas joined Jack Roush in calling for local government as well as business fleets in Texas to save money by using alternative fueled-propane vehicles.
Jack Roush said, “Texas leads the nation in pickup truck usage and can easily take the leadership role in terms of adopting propane as an alternate fuel. The interest we have for the ROUSH propane-powered vehicles in Texas already far surpasses that of any other state so far. We look forward to working with the fleets and municipalities of the Lone Star state to clean up the environment, lower their operating costs, and help reduce America’s dependency on foreign oil with a simple switch to propane-powered pickups and vans.”
