Roush donates tribute car to Yates' son

By

The NASCAR community lost a giant in 2017 when Robert Yates died in October after a long battle with liver cancer. He was 74.

Jack Roush, who partnered with Yates and Ford in 2003 to form Roush Yates engines, and Roush Fenway Racing ran a tribute scheme on Ricky Stenhouse’s Ford Fusion at the Phoenix race in November. On Wednesday, Roush presented Yates’ son Doug with that car at the Roush Fenway shop.
