Rick Ware Racing enters Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona
Rick Ware Racing (RWR) has been the staple of what a diverse motorsports program should be. In the past three years, RWR has competed in the AMA Arenacross, Motocross, Supercross, NASCAR Sprint Cup, Nationwide, Camping World Truck, K&N Pro East and West Series' as well as the ARCA Remax Series.
Coming off a strong weekend in Texas where RWR qualified 10th in the NASCAR Camping World event and 11th for the Nationwide event, Rick Ware Racing is proud to announce that in February 2011, RWR will head back to its original roots, road racing. Rick Ware Racing will be fielding a GT3 Porsche for the running of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona in the Grand-Am Series.
"It has always been a dream for me to go back to Daytona and compete in the Rolex Series," stated owner Rick Ware. "I got the opportunity to compete in the event several years ago, where we finished 2nd in class and I look forward to compete as the owner this time around."
RWR will field the GT3 entry with several drivers from the NASCAR level. "We have some talented road course drivers in NASCAR that can compete with the world's best road racers. At this moment, we are looking to finalize the last two positions on the roster and will be making the team announcement soon."
The RWR team will be sponsored by existing companies from their NASCAR side as well as new associate sponsors for the historic event.
The team will have support from Porsche engineering as well as guidance from veterans of the series within the organization.
"The guidance we have is top-notch, as well as a proven car over the past several years. After competing in some off-season testing, the team will be prepared to show strength early.
The RWR Grand-Am team will then look at the possibility of running the entire season with veteran drivers as the "Biggest Little Team in Motorsports", looks to make its mark on the Championship.
