Roush Yates Engines has announced it has reached an extension agreement with longtime partner MAHLE. These two performance companies have had a 14-year relationship and running.
“MAHLE has been with us since the beginning,” said Doug Yates, president & CEO, Roush Yates Engines. “We have collaborated on numerous projects over the past 14 years, developing the best products and results in the industry. MAHLE always strives to be the best in the industry making them a very valuable partner to Roush Yates Engines.”
The strong alliance between Roush Yates Engines and MAHLE was formed in 2004. They have been a vital contributor to the design and development of all Roush Yates Engines’ products. With the help of companies like MAHLE, RYE’s engine packages are developed to maximize horsepower and efficiency with exceptionally reliable under the harshest of conditions.
MAHLE products are an integral part of the Ford FR9 V8 NASCAR race engine, twin-turbo Ford EcoBoost V6 and Ford Mustang 5.2L V8 road race engine, as well as the Roush Yates Engines RY45 V8 purpose built engine. MAHLE parts were essential in powering key Roush Yates Engines’ wins last year in NASCAR and Road Racing, including the 2017 Rolex 24 At Daytona with the No. 66 Ford Chip Ganassi Racing team of Joey Hand, Dirk Müller and Sébastien Bourdais.
“The relationship we continue to maintain with everyone at Roush Yates Engines is very special to us, and remains one of the longest running partnerships we have in the sport,” says Jon Douglas, president of MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. “Although these two companies officially only go back to 2004, the relationship dates much further back to the days when Robert was tearing up tracks as an engine builder and owner on his way to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. We are both committed to quality, technology, and innovation; and we look toward many years of success together.”
