Roo Motorsports To Debut In NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2015
Believed to be a multi-million dollar effort over three years, Roo Motorsports will become the first Australian-owned NASCAR team.
The team has signed Australian Scott Saunders who has been living in the US since 2008 as its driver for the ambitious project.
Roo Motorsports announced the project simultaneously with unveilings in Brisbane and North Carolina. The team will be based in the heart of NASCAR country at Salisbury in Charlotte.
Saunders will follow in the footsteps of Australia’s first full-time NASCAR driver Marcos Ambrose who started in the truck series in 2006 before graduating to the second tier Nationwide level and then making it to the main Sprint Cup competition.
