The Rick Ware Racing teams battled the heat and 600 miles this past weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  The RWR cars received a great deal of attention as all 3 cars were wrapped in warplane motif.  The cars also carried the names of 3 soldiers that gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms.  RWR ran 3 teams for the second time in as many weeks at Charlotte.

The Jacob Company #51, driven by Cody Ware, carried the design of the P-40 Warhawk and  finished the day 38th after a right rear wheel hub broke.  The soldier on the #51 was SGT Lee Wilson of Chapel Hill, NC.  SGT Wilson was killed in Mosul, Iraq after his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb.  

The #52, driven by Bayley Currey, was having a good run until Martin Truex, Jr, who went on to win the race, washed up into Bayley turning him and sending him into the inside wall off of turn 4.  The wreck finished the day and the #52 ended up finishing in 35th position.  The #52 carried the design of the SR-71 and had SGT James Slape on the windshield banner.  SGT Slape was from Morehead City, NC and was a member of the Army National Guard.  SGT Slape was killed in Afghanistan October 4th, 2018 as the result of an IED.  

The Enlisted Nine Fight Company #53 was driven by veteran driver BJ McLeod.  BJ took the checkers Sunday night and finished 29th.  The #53 carried the design of the WWII P-51 and carried the name of Corporal William O'Brien, who's brother Dan is one of the owners and CEO of Enlisted Nine Fight Company.  Corporal O'Brien was killed in Baghdad, Iraq on March 15, 2008.  He was 20 years old and was from Rice, TX.  

All the RWR drivers and crew members worked hard and did a great job, even as the temperature inside the track was over 100 degrees.  NASCAR once again did an incredible job with their salute to the military before the 600 mile race and also with a moment of silence after the 2nd stage in which all the cars came down pit road and turned off their motors.  RWR will take 2 teams and cars to Pocono this coming weekend for the Pocono 400 at the "Tricky Triangle".

Rick Ware Racing had 3 entries for the first time this season in the ALL STAR OPEN this past weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  RWR unveiled the ENLISTED NINE FIGHT COMPANY #53 Chevrolet which was driven by RWR regular BJ McLeod.  "The response to this car and this paint scheme was incredible", said RWR owner Rick Ware.  "Our social media has been blowing up since we released pictures of that car.  The people at Enlisted Nine Fight Company said their response to the car was incredible and exceeded their expectations."

The Enlisted Nine Fight Company will also be the Primary Marketing Partner this weekend on the RWR #53 for the Coca-Cola 600.  JACOB COMPANIES will return as the Primary Marketing Partner on the RWR #51.  The RWR #52 is still searching for a Primary Marketing Partner at this time.  Be sure to tune in this Sunday afternoon to watch all 3 RWR teams take on the 600 miles in the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.  The race will be broadcast at 6:00 PM on Fox and the Fox Sports App.

This past weekend in Talladega Superspeedway was a huge success for all the RWR teams.  On the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series side, Cody Ware brought home the Jacob Companies #51 Ford Mustang in 28th place and without a single scratch.  Cody had a great afternoon and did a great job keeping up with the draft most of the afternoon.  Unfortunately, trying to stretch out the fuel mileage at the end of the first stage, the #51 ran out of fuel and had to coast back around the high banks of Talladega and to the pits.  Cody made it back to pit road, but it cost the team a lot of time and a couple of laps. Cody, and the #51 team bounced back and rallied to finish 28th and finish the race.

The #52 Huski Chocolate Chevrolet of Stanton Barrett had a long day as the car had motor issues and had problems keeping up with the draft.  To make issues worse, there were some problems with team communications which made it tough to let Stanton know when to fall in line to stay in the draft.  The car ended up breaking the right front suspension and fell out of the race to finish in 35th place.  Stanton was still upbeat in the garage following the race and felt like the team had something to build on for the future.  

The RWR #17 Xfinity team had a great day on Saturday and pulled out a 10th place finish.  Chris Cockrum did a great job navigating the #17 through several incidents and brought the car home with the teams first top 10 finish of the season in the Xfinity Series. The car, sponsored by Advanced Communications Group, was competitive all afternoon.  

The RWR teams are back at the shop in Thomasville, NC getting ready for the upcoming weekend at the Dover International Speedway.  Marketing opportunities are still available on the MENCS #52 an the NXS #17.  Contact Bryan Clodfelter at for more info.
