Mooresville, NC. September 29, 2015 – Roush Yates Engines and Ford Performance propelled Andrew Aquilante to his sixth SCCA Runoff title on Saturday, at Daytona International Speedway for Phoenix American Motorsports. Aquilante led all 14 laps on his way to victory in the T1 Touring division.

“Our start went to plan,” said Aquilante, “Roush Yates does a great job building some awesome engines!”

Aquilante earned the pole for the T1 Touring division on Friday, his fourth overall SCCA Runoff pole in the class. By turn 1, he had his Ford Mustang out front and was laying down solid quick laps, which allowed him to power away from the competition.

Setting the fastest lap of the race with a 1:55.494 (110.967mph), Aquilante succeeded in winning the T1 Touring division race; by 7.771 seconds, in 14 laps with an average speed of 109.603mph.

“Andrew and Phoenix American Motorsports had an incredible 2015 season,” said Doug Yates, President & CEO of Roush Yates, “They have had a remarkable year winning six SCCA Runoff titles, assisting Ford Performance in winning the GTS Manufacturers and team Championships in the Pirelli World Challenge.”

The Chester Springs, PA native is a six time SCCA National Champion in the T1 and GT2 divisions and a two time Northeast Divisional Driver of the Year. He has also collected eight SCCA Runoff poles in four divisions.
