A Musical Distraction: Roush’s Distractor Face Campaign Teams Up with Rockin’ th
The Roush Distractor Face campaign has teamed up with Rockin’ the Redline to collaborate on the next phase of Roush’s fan interaction effort. This time, fans will get to vote for a famous musician to grace the rear of the Roush No. 61 Boss 302R Mustang for the remainder of the 2013 Grand Am season. It’s up to you to decide who gets their face on the back of the Roush race car by voting online. Keep reading to see who is ready to distract the track.
“We launched the Distractor Face last year to create an outlet for our fans to interact with each other and compete to become an honorary part of our race team,” said Jack Roush, Jr., co-driver of the No. 61 Roush Performance Boss 302R Grand Am Mustang. “This time around, we’re putting a little different spin on things. We have some great musicians that are eager to compete to be on the rear of the No. 61. It should be a lot of fun and a great opportunity for our Roush fans to interact with the rock and roll community and vice versa."
What’s Rockin’ the Redline? According to Ed Abrams, CEO and creator of the brand, it’s an organization built around the long lasting relationship between driving and music. We can dig that! The first round of distracting faces will include Saving Abel’s Scott Bartlett, Fuel’s Andy Anderson, Puddle of Mudd’s Paul Phillips, and the duo John Faye and Brittany Rotondo. They will battle it out against each other online in hopes of gracing the rear of the No. 61 Roush Boss 302R during the Diamond Cellar Classic Grand AM race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on June 15.
