Rick Ware comments
“I am really excited about what 2022 has in store for RWR,” commented team owner, Rick Ware.
“We have been waiting for the Next Gen car to become a reality and step up our program. RWR has had a great relationship with SHR over the years, from Cole Custer making his Cup series debut with us, to utilizing their development pit crew over the years. I am excited to have an engineering alliance with a great team like SHR, to be able to assist in building our cars and have the support thru this major development process, all the way thru the 2022 season.”
Ware added, “Partnering with Roush Yates Engines and SHR is the logical next step in continuing to grow as an organization.”
