RW Motorsports Returns to Homestead-Miami with New Cars, New Drivers

LEDERACH, Penn. (March 20, 2007) -- RW Motorsports (RWMS), of Lederach, Pennsylvania, returns to Homestead-Miami Speedway (HMS) this week bigger and better than the same event during the 2006 season. Showcasing two brand-new C&R Racing Inc. cars, along with drivers Mat Neely and Jerry Coons, Jr., the RWMS team is ready to continue their march to the United States Auto Club (USAC) Silver Crown Championship.

Neely, driving a C&R pavement car powered by a HG and Associates Chevy motor and Coons, driving a C&R car with a Stanton Mopar, are both confident in their new cars.

"I'm excited to take this new C&R to Miami with us," stated Neely. "We didn't make it for the Miami test last month, but we were able to test at Darlington, which gave me a chance to get comfortable in the new car."

With Scott Benic of Benic Enterprises serving as Neely's crew chief, it's a combination that proved potent during the 2006 USAC Sprint Car season, garnering the Buckeye Nationals crown, as well as two victories on the national circuit.

Coons, Jr., a long-time veteran of USAC open-wheel racing, will be behind the wheel of the second RWMS car, a C&R chassis with Stanton Mopar power under the hood.

"I'm looking forward to running at Miami," said Coons. "This track is fast, and I'm confident that the RWMS guys will be able to give me a car that I can take to the front."

Mike Randol, the crew chief for Coons, Jr., served as the crew chief for the single-car team for the 2006 season.

Rotondo Weirich (RW) is a specialty contractor that produces high quality, pre-finished, concrete housing modules. Over the past decade, RW has melded the qualities of a plant-based pre-cast operation with that of an onsite contractor to become the only company that mobilizes the entire production and finishing processes to the project site. RW's success with "on-site" production is proven in the nearly 55,000 modules which they have produced for projects located throughout the United States and internationally.
