RWR Teams Finish 32nd and 33rd at Atlanta

The Rick Ware Racing teams left Atlanta with BJ McLeod finishing 32nd in the Trick Shot Chevrolet and Cody Ware finishing 33rd in the JACOB COMPANIES Ford Mustang.  McLeod had a pit road incident on lap 273 when a car from another team ran into the rear of the #52 as he was coming into the pits to get tires, fuel, and make a few adjustments.  The RWR #52 pit crew had to service the Chevrolet backwards in the pits after the spin.  BJ recovered to finish the race and take the checkered flag.

Cody Ware fought an ill handling race car all day and took the checkered flag in 33rd position.  "Our team tried really hard to get the car to handle, but we just couldn't get it done", said Ware.  "I feel confident that we will fix what went wrong in Atlanta and do better in Las Vegas."  Cody left Atlanta after the race and is making a cross country trip to Las Vegas for the Penzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday.  Be sure to follow Cody's cross country escapades by finding #WareRWeGoing on social media.

Winn-Dixie to sponsor Cody Ware in Daytona 500 debut

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. With the 61st annual Daytona 500 six days away, Rick Ware Racing (RWR) announced today the addition of Winn-Dixie as the primary sponsor of the team’s second chartered Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) entry driven by Cody Ware.

Founded in 1925, Winn-Dixie grocery stores, liquor stores and in-store pharmacies serve communities throughout five southeastern states – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Mississippi.

 

Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc. is a subsidiary of Southeastern Grocers, which is one of the largest supermarket chains based in the Southeast.

Industry veteran George Church will guide Ware in his inaugural Daytona 500.

“This is like a dream come true,” said Cody Ware. “I really can’t explain the feelings I have about getting ready to run my first Daytona 500. “It’s like being a little kid at Christmas and it can’t get here soon enough. We still have a lot to learn even after practice and qualifying this past weekend.

“It’s also a bonus to be able to go out there and represent one of the biggest grocery chains in the country. I couldn’t believe it when Winn-Dixie agreed to be our primary partner for Daytona. This is a huge boost for Rick Ware Racing, and we plan on representing them to the best of our abilities.”

Rick Ware Racing team principal Rick Ware says he’s proud to have two cars in this year’s “Great American Race” – especially with marketing partners who are acquainted with the sport.

“We are very excited to be here at Daytona and equally excited to have Winn-Dixie on our No. 52 Chevrolet,” said Ware. “We have worked very hard during the off season to be able to bring our two teams to Daytona and continue with the enhancement of our program from 2018.

“We are very fortunate to have had some really great companies join our family during the off-season and even at the beginning of the season. To be able to see our No. 52 Chevrolet whip around Daytona with Winn-Dixie on board is very exciting. They are a familiar name in NASCAR and we’re thankful for their support.

“Being brand ambassadors for Winn-Dixie, JACOB Companies and the many other associate marketing partners is something that we all at Rick Ware Racing are very proud of.”

The 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season-opening Daytona 500 is set for Sunday, Feb. 17 with coverage on FOX, the Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Satellite Radio Channel 90. Event coverage begins at 2:30 p.m. (ET).
