Roush was raised in Manchester, Ohio, after being born in Covington, Kentucky on 19 April 1942. He graduated from Berea College with a degree in mathematics and a minor in physics and from Eastern Michigan University with a master’s degree in scientific mathematics. After graduating in 1966, Roush went to work for Ford before leaving in 1970 to start his own business. Before leaving to start his own engineering company, he spent a year working at Chrysler.

Roush sold the components he created for his team throughout the majority of his career.
