The company recently partnered with the Thomasville, N.C.-based team last month at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway for the Coke Zero Sugar 400 with Ray Black Jr.

"We are beyond excited to have such a great marketing partner such as Jacob Companies,” said team principal Rick Ware. “This relationship will continue through the balance of the season and we could not be happier than to represent Jacob Companies on our No. 51 Chevrolet.

“Don Perry is such a class act and we are thrilled to be able to collaborate with him and his company. He brings such a wealth of knowledge that we will be able to draw from and resources that will help take our team to another level.

“Everyone at RWR is very excited to have the Official Construction Company of NASCAR on our race team.”

Rick Ware Racing made history at Daytona becoming the first Cup Series team in modern era to have two females serve as pit crew members. Brehanna Daniels and Breanna O’Leary changed tires for Black during his fourth career Cup Series start.

Sunday afternoon’s Go Bowling at The Glen will be broadcasted live on Sun., Aug. 5 at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC, the Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, channel 90.

Harrison Rhodes returns to Rick Ware Racing at Martinsville with new sponsor

MARTINSVILLE, Va. – After making his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) debut at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway last month, NASCAR Xfinity Series regular Harrison Rhodes (@HarrisonRhodes) returns to Rick Ware Racing’s No. 51 chartered Chevrolet for Sunday’s STP 500 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

Joining Rhodes in his debut at Martinsville is primary marketing partner Custom Aircraft Cabinets (CAC).

Custom Aircraft Cabinets has been providing luxurious interiors for private, corporate and head-of-state aircraft since 1989. CAC manufactures the highest quality cabinetry, upholstered interior products from a state-of-the-art facility in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

“CAC is very proud to sponsor and be a part of Rick Ware Racing and it is an honor to be included with their team,” stated Paul Reesnes, co-owner of Custom Aircraft Cabinets.

Mike Gueringer, co-owner of CAC added, “This is a great way for CAC to expose our products and services to a most discerning audience.”

RWR team principal Rick Ware says he’s excited to debut a new partnership with his team at the sport’s pinnacle level – and have a qualified driver like Rhodes behind the wheel at Martinsville’s famed paperclip oval.

“I’m very appreciative of Custom Aircraft Cabinets and their support of our team this weekend,” said Ware. “They’ve taken a head-first approach with this new opportunity to support a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team and I hope this is a partnership that everyone will see expand throughout the year.

“I’m equally excited to have Harrison back behind the wheel for us this weekend. He flew under the radar at Atlanta but learned a lot and showcased his ability to respectfully compete in a Cup race. Martinsville isn’t an easy track, but with his desire, dedication and focus, I think he’ll be fine on Sunday.”

A native of High Point, N.C., Rhodes has spent the last five years competing in the Xfinity Series for a variety of different organizations. Last year, the 24-year-old competed in 31 races driving for JD Motorsports with Gary Keller earning a season-high 10th place finish in the season-opening race at Daytona.

“I’ve never been to Martinsville, but I’m optimistic about our chances,” added Rhodes. “I’m grateful to Custom Aircraft Cabinets and Rick (Ware) for giving me an opportunity to compete in another Cup race.

“I think our goals for this weekend are obtainable. We just need to make gains from practice to qualifying and see the checkered flag on Sunday. If we can do that – we can continue to build as a team and set our expectations a little higher for the next race.”

In addition to Custom Aircraft Cabinets, RWR is proud to carry the support of Keen Buildings, Spoonful of Music, American Dream Leasing and Financing and Industrial Construction Experts as associate marketing partners for the sixth race on the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series tour.

FONTANA, Calif. – For the second consecutive year at Auto Club Speedway, BUBBA burger® will join Rick Ware Racing (RWR) as the primary marketing partner of the team’s charted No. 51 Toyota Camry for Sunday’s Auto Club 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) race.

BUBBA burger® is also a proud partner and the official burger of Auto Club Speedway.

“As an owner and driver, I have been fortunate to have competed in the NASCAR Winston West, Truck, Xfinity and Cup races at Fontana, so everyone knows how important this race is to me,” said RWR team principal Rick Ware. “I was born in Los Angeles and I considered Riverside Raceway my home track before Auto Club was built.

“With Auto Club now representing this part of the area of California, it’s a track that has a lot of significance to me. It’s also nice to come home, but it’s important for us to run as competitive as possible too. We’ve made some gains this season. I’m confident we can continue our progress with Timmy on Sunday.”

Hill, the 2011 NASCAR Xfinity Series Rookie of the Year will make his third Cup Series start at Fontana and the second since 2013.

“I’m thankful to have the opportunity to drive for Rick and BUBBA burger® this weekend,” added Hill. “Everyone at BUBBA burger® is a blast to work with and their products are fantastic.

“BUBBA burger® has been a strong partner to RWR and others for years and I’m honored to represent a company that has such a hungry appetite for Motorsports, particularly NASCAR.”

Andy Stenson, vice president of marketing for BUBBA foods LLC. said, “We love our presence in NASCAR and take pride in our partnerships with the teams and tracks like Rick Ware Racing and Auto Club Speedway.

“BUBBA burger® has been a sponsor of Rick Ware Racing for a number of years and is proud to help this family-run team compete with the much larger organizations in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. BUBBA burger® is ready to light up the grill and light up the track in California this weekend.”

Stenson added, “With BUBBA, victory never tasted so good!”

Rick Ware Racing Continues to Aid Texas Hurricane Victims with Additional Support from BBMC Mortgage

RICHMOND, Va. – For the second consecutive week, Rick Ware Racing (RWR) will continue to use their Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) team to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Raceway.

For this weekend’s regular season finale, RWR thanks Matt Casto with The Sports Agency for securing the support of BBMC Mortgage. Motorsports veteran B.J. McLeod will drive the team’s No. 51 Chevrolet in Saturday night’s race.

BBMC Mortgage is proud to support the No. 51 Texas Strong Chevrolet in an effort to bring further awareness to the need for additional relief funds due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey. Moreover, BBMC Mortgage has added Team Rubicon’s Harvey Relief efforts to its Patriot’s Charity initiative lineup. For every loan BBMC Mortgage closes, the company will donate $150 to one of their four veteran service organizations chosen by the customer through their Patriot’s Charity Initiative. In operation help get Houston and the Hurricane Harvey-afflicted areas back to Texas Strong conditions, all funds directed to Team Rubicon will go to their Harvey relief efforts. Since the program began in January 2015, BBMC has donated more than $1.8 million through its Patriot's Charity Initiative.

“Very excited to have BBMC Mortgage on board our No. 51 Texas Strong Chevrolet this weekend at Richmond,” said RWR team principal Rick Ware. “We are continuing in our efforts to raise money and awareness for the catastrophic flooding in Texas. Our thoughts and prayers are also with the people in the path of Hurricane Irma.”

McLeod, a native of Wauchula, Fla. is keeping his thoughts and prayers with his family and friends in the path of Hurricane Irma which is expected to slam the Sunshine State this weekend.

“I’m very proud to be driving a car that is dedicated to helping those in need during one of the most challenging times of their lives,” said McLeod who will make his sixth career Cup start at Richmond. “While we’re here racing at Richmond, I’m still thinking about all those effected in Texas, while on a personal level, my heart is back at home in Florida and hoping for the best as everyone prepares for the arrival of Hurricane Irma.”

BUBBA burger® will serve as a primary co-sponsor for Saturday night’s race and has pledged the company’s support to assist in the aid of the recovery in the Lone Star state.

Also, RWR will have additional support from Spoonful of Music, Lilly Trucking and Ucentre for the 26th race on the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Tour.

Rick Ware Racing heads to Darlington with retro throwback scheme; but focus on Texas

DARLINGTON, S.C. – Rick Ware Racing (RWR) is the latest Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) team that will participate in NASCAR’s annual throwback weekend for Sunday’s Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway. However, for the Thomasville, N.C.-based race team, there’s more than just a cool sleek paint scheme driven by Cody Ware. The team’s attention is primarily focused on the people of Texas who continue to battle ranging flooding from the reminisces of Hurricane Harvey. For Sunday’s jewel crown race, Rick Ware Racing will utilize the annual Labor Day tradition to encourage race fans across the globe to show their support to Texans whose lives are forever changed because of the savage brutal power of nature. The devastation of Houston and its surrounding areas has also a personal touch to Rick and Lisa Ware, the owners of Rick Ware Racing. Born in Houston, Lisa Ware grew up in nearby Kingwood, Texas. The area suffered major devastation from the storm. Several of Lisa’s and Rick’s high school friends have lost everything. “Most of my family still lives in Texas,” said Lisa Ware. “I am absolutely heartbroken for the people of Houston, but Texans are strong and resilient and they will rebuild better than ever. Please consider donating in any way you possibly can. “My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Texas. Thank you to all the first respondents, rescuers and volunteers who are risking their own lives to save lives.” For team principal Rick Ware, his eccentric career in Motorsports started in Houston racing motorcycles and race cars – so the impact of the storm has weighed heavily on his shoulders. “I love Texas,” Rick Ware added. “A large part of my family still lives there and we visit often. Having lived through several hurricanes in the 1980’s, I’ve experienced it first-hand. Hurricane Harvey is another level. “We want to use Darlington this weekend to bring awareness to generate additional donations to help families throughout Texas. Texans are as tough as the come. But, in this scenario they need our prayers and support now.” The team’s No. 51 Days of Thunder / Pray for Texas Chevrolet this weekend at the track dubbed “Too Tough To Tame” will resemble the mellow yellow colors from the iconic Days of Thunder film driven by Cole Trickle. An avid Days of Thunder fan, driver Cody Ware is appreciative for the opportunity to adorn those classic colors on a throwback weekend, but is eager to do his part to spread the message of help and recovery for those affected. “I am very excited to be racing at Darlington this weekend. It is a track with so much history and to be running the Southern 500 with my family is a huge blessing,” offered Ware. “I’m equally excited to be running the Days of Thunder / Tribute to Texas Chevrolet throwback! “Like my parents, I am also praying for all the people of Texas.” BUBBA burger® will serve as a primary co-sponsor for Sunday’s race. SBCContractors.com headquartered in Sacramento, Calif. will serve as a major associate marketing partner for Sunday’s race. Owner Steve Bradenburg has pledged his company’s support to assist in the aid of the recovery in the Lone Star state. Also, RWR will have additional support from Spoonful of Music, Lilly Trucking and U-Center for the 25th race on the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series tour.
