Jack Roush, founder/chairman of Roush Enterprises, talked about his decades in motor racing and what it takes to succeed during a special “Michigan Matters” show featuring auto icons.
He certainly knows as the owner who has won more races in NASCAR than any other.
Roush was joined on the show by another icon, Ed Welburn, who led GM’s auto design team until he left and started a consulting firm.
Both men appeared with Carol Cain, Senior Producer/Host of “Michigan Matters,” in an exclusive appearance as they talked about their recent inductions into the Automotive Hall of Fame.
Welburn shared thoughts about his favorite autos of all time and what he is doing today.
