The Lifestyle Brand To Launch a Motorsports Line of Apparel
Thomasville, NC (January 23, 2017) – Spencer Boyd is proud to welcome back Grunt Style as his primary sponsor for the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Season. Driving for Rick Ware Racing, Spencer will pilot the No. 12 Grunt Style Chevrolet Silverado in multiple races this year.
Grunt Style is a lifestyle apparel brand founded by Former US Drill Sergeant, Daniel Alarik. Grunt Style believes in Pride in Self, in Military, and in Country. Throughout the season, Spencer Boyd and Rick Ware Racing will be celebrating our nation’s military and honoring our veterans.
“I am beyond grateful for Grunt Style’s support this year. Without sponsorship, I don’t race. Thanks to them I can follow my passion and chase my dreams,” says Boyd. “We honored our veterans last year with our American Flag truck at Homestead-Miami last year and I’m super excited to unveil our Assaulting Camo truck this year. It will debut at Daytona and return for many races throughout the season.”
Grunt Style CEO, Daniel Alarik said about their new line, “Grunt Style Motorsports is all about freedom. We are true rebels at heart and we don’t play by the rules. Whether it be on the open road, trails or track we want you to be comfortable while still looking and feeling totally badass. Our gear is both prideful and practical, rough and rugged but always looks kick ass.”
“Our truck program is certainly taking shape with Spencer and Grunt Style,” states Rick Ware. “We will take a bit of a flexible approach with the races Spencer is running this season. After Daytona, we expect he will drive the spring races at Kansas, Dover, Charlotte, and Texas. Grunt Style’s home track of Chicagoland is on the list in September and few more in between.”
Spotting for Spencer will be Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series veteran Chris Osborne. With a resume that includes Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, and Daniel Suarez, Osborne is that eye in the sky that a young driver needs to find a calm, fast line around the track.
Boyd shared his thoughts on Daytona, “We all know Daytona is a special track. I tested an ARCA car there last year, but to finally race at ‘The World Center of Racing’ is a dream come true. Our team has a good strategy on how to approach the race so at the end of the race, the No. 12 Grunt Style Chevrolet Silverado will be assaulting forward to the finish line!”
The NextEra Energy Resources 250 from Daytona International Speedway can be seen live on Friday, February 24th on FOX Sports 1. Race coverage will begin at 7:30 p.m. EST, and the event can also be heard live on MRN Radio as well as SiriusXM Radio, channel 90.
THOMASVILLE, N.C. – Officials from Rick Ware Racing (RWR) announced today the team’s intent to compete in a majority of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season as an “open non-chartered” team beginning with next month’s 59th annual Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway.
RWR’s return to the elite level of NASCAR will have Timmy Hill aboard the No. 51 Chevrolet for Speedweeks with a rotating list of drivers to follow throughout the season including longtime RWR drivers Stanton Barrett and Cody Ware to name a few.
“We’ve been eyeing our return to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series since the end of last year,” said RWR team principal Rick Ware. “We knew with the competition level stronger than ever, we needed to take the steps to make sure we could come to the track and be as competitive as possible, while focused on building our organization as the season presses on.”
RWR also announced the team has required assets from Tommy Baldwin Racing for use this season, while also purchasing a superspeedway car once wheeled by Landon Cassill who posted a top-five finish at Talladega Superspeedway in 2014 driving for Hillman Racing.
Additionally, Longtime industry veteran Joe Lax will serve as crew chief, while pro-motor engineering (PME) will supply the horsepower during the season. Furthermore, Mike Hillman Sr., a longtime fixture in NASCAR joins RWR in a newly created role as competition director.
“I feel like we’ve done a great job getting our stars aligned for this year,” Ware added. “Between acquiring cars from Tommy Baldwin Racing and having a good open relationship with them, plus being able to bring key personnel aboard who have the desire and drive to make our team the best it’s ever been, I couldn’t be more excited to get our season underway.”
Hill, the 2011 NASCAR XFINITY Series is hopeful to make his “World Center of Racing” debut in next month’s Super Bowl event. The 23-year-old hopes to make his 49th Cup race in his first ever Daytona 500.
Despite no Cup starts at Daytona, the Port Tobacco, MD native has four XFINITY starts at the 2.5-mile oval with two career top-10 finishes including back-to-back top-10 runs for Rick Ware Racing in 2012 with a career-best seventh in the season-opening race.
“I’m thankful to continue my relationship with Rick Ware Racing for the 2017 season,” said Hill. “I’ve always wanted the chance to compete in the Daytona 500 and thanks to Rick and Lisa (Ware), I’ll have that opportunity. It won’t be easy, but as a team, we’re focused and will give it all we have and hope we’ll be one of the 40 cars running in the Daytona 500!”
In addition to their effort in the Cup Series, Rick Ware Racing will also compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) this season with recently announced driver Spencer Boyd at the wheel.
Sponsorship for the team’s Cup entry will be announced at a later date.
