No California love for Hill

Timmy Hill (#15)and Jennifer Jo Cobb (#41) both had a rough outing at the Auto Club Speedway this past weekend in California. With both never competing on the track and the young RWR team still trying to figure out the NEW car in the Nationwide Series showed just how tough this series can be.

Hill qualified his Ford in the 32nd position as Cobb managed to put her Lilly Trucking Ford, 40th on the grid.

"This place was tougher than we expected and never really got a hold of the track until the last 40 laps of the race, even though we turned nearly 130 laps of practice," Hill stated.

Cobb struggled with the setup and ultimately felt that the car was just to "far out" to compete without possibly wrecking it and ended up 38th on the day.

Hill stayed true all day to figure out the track and car and finished 32nd on the day.

"We learned a ton today and I think we can show that next week at Texas," claimed Hill.

Jennifer Jo Cobb joins RWR at California

Rick Ware Racing (RWR) is proud to announce that Jennifer Jo Cobb will be driving the #41 at the Auto Club Speedway for the running of the Royal Purple 300 on Saturday.

RWR and Cobb’s deal came together late Sunday after issues at Bristol forced her out of her recent ride in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.

“I don’t really want to get into the middle of all that happened at Bristol,” stated owner Rick Ware. “What I will comment on is that I have known Jennifer for years and she has worked hard to get where she is today. Nothing has been handed to her. She has shown she can race with the best this series can offer and I am glad that we can reach out and help her during this situation.”

Ware is no stranger to female drivers. In fact, RWR has fielded entries for Angie Wilson, Amber Cope, Chrissy Wallace and Kim Crosby, perhaps putting him as the leader in the NASCAR series’ for promoting women racers within the sanctioning body of NASCAR.

“I have had great success with female racers in my career, leading each one to their own personal career high finish in NASCAR. I have won two championships in the motocross series with a female and have competed in the X-Games as well in the women’s motocross division. They are tough as nails and Jennifer has proven that in her career and even more so this past weekend.”

Jennifer Jo Cobb will be team mates with her competitor for the Rookie of the Year championship with Timmy Hill in the #15 Ford Mustang.

“Most people would look at having two rookies in the same race as a conflict, but not us. Timmy and Jennifer are fierce competitors both on and off the track,” stated Ware. At Las Vegas, Hill challenged Cobb to a standoff at the autograph signing at the Stratosphere Hotel.

“I’m not going to stop signing until she does,” Hill laughed. The two rookies signed autographs until the lights were turned off and forced them to stop. “It’s a friendly rivalry between us that is a benefit to the fans at each event. She is a great driver and I look forward to her being in our camp this weekend at California,” stated Hill.

Action gets underway on Friday, March 25th at 4:40 pm EST with Nationwide Series practice. Qualifying is scheduled to begin on Saturday at 1:10am EST with the race at 5:30pm EST.

Greetings Express joins Long at Bristol

Rick Ware Racing (RWR) is proud to announce that Greeting Express has returned to the family of primary sponsors for the Scotts EZ Seed 300 with driver Carl Long at Bristol Motor Speedway this weekend.

With a heavy heart, Greeting Express and Rick Ware Racing will be honoring their teammates, Dean Shaut and Steve “Dirt” Masch who were involved in a fatal accident last weekend by having each ride as a “co-pilot” with their names over the passenger door for the remainder of the season. In addition, the team will carry a special note to “Dirt” on the deck lid of the #41 for the race.

The partnership of greetingexpress.com and Rick Ware Racing started last fall with a very successful showing in the Camping World Truck Series in Loudon, NH. The #47 Truck was driven by Bobby Hamilton, Jr. to a top ten finish and led to an incredible amount of exposure for the growing company.

Greeting Express, Inc., a custom web-to-print company offering everything from business cards to high-end photo books based in Durham, NC, is proud to announce the next chapter in its relationship with Rick Ware Racing as a primary sponsor. The multi-race deal will kick off in Bristol, TN this weekend with greetingexpress.com #41 Nationwide Ford Mustang driven by Carl Long.

Greetingexpress.com decided to return for the 2011 season because of the positive feelings surrounding their NASCAR debut, and the treatment they received as a sponsor with Rick Ware Racing. Founding President of Greeting Express, Inc. Kate Sessoms said, “bringing back our sponsorship for the race at Bristol is an opportune time for us as we are live launching our custom design studio and going full web to print the week leading up to the race. We are confident in not only the abilities of Rick Ware Racing from a sponsor point of view, but also appreciate how their close knit family mentality fits in with our own”.

This same sentiment was the original spark to the first sponsorship deal back in 2010. Since then Rick Ware Racing has not only gained followers, but also a group of young talented drivers including Jeffrey Earnhardt and Timmy Hill.

“We are really excited that Greeting Express has joined our family,” stated Rick Ware. “Our organization has been getting stronger each year and with Greeting Express coming aboard, we know we can driver their message to the front with Carl Long.”

Greeting Express, Inc. is thrilled for this next chapter with “the biggest little team in motorsports”, and is hopeful to build a lasting relationship with the dedicated team.
