Rougeux plans to race every weekend at Sharon Speedway until the season ends in November. He has been racing since 1997. He uses K&N Engineering products on all of his vehicles.

“We race in very dusty conditions,” said Rougeux. “I pulled the K&N Filter off after the heat race and there was absolutely no dirt in my brand new carburetor. The seal on the K&N Air Filter lid also does a great job of preventing debris from passing through the air filter element. The K&N Oil Filter is great, with all the movement and ruts we deal with on the track, there is never any pressure fluctuation on the gauge.”

The Rougeux Motorsports Team also competed at Lernerville Speedway in Sarver, Pennsylvania. Rougeux captured a third place finish in the feature event. The team stands in third position of the Lernerville Speedway DIRT Modified Points.
