Rick Ware Racing made a shocking revelation on Friday in that they have not just one but two charters for the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. They’ll have two full time cars in all 36 points paying races in the upcoming season.
RWR will run the No. 51 and No. 52 Chevrolet’s. Per NASCAR, the new charter was purchased from Front Row Motorsports who will expand to a third car themselves in 2019.
RWR has also acquired a “fleet” of cars from Leavine Family Racing and FRM.
The team also announced that they will compete full time in the XFINITY Series in 2019 too. It will be the first time since 2017 that they’ll compete on that level as they said that they have purchased owner’s points from another team. The car number will be the No. 25 Chevrolet.
“It’s been a busy off-season for our team since Homestead but we’re embracing 2019 with a wide-open approach,” said Rick Ware in a press release. “By acquiring a second Cup charter it will allow us to have two full-time cars at the race track each weekend where we hope it will allow the two teams to work together and improve the team performance overall from the 2018 season.
“I’m also thrilled to know that we’ll return to the NASCAR Xfinity Series at Daytona and sport the No. 25; a number that is truly meaningful to me – celebrating our 25th year of existence less than two years ago. It’s going to be our busiest year yet in NASCAR competition, but I feel we will be adequately prepared and look forward to a successful season.”
Details on driver, sponsor and crew chief lineups for RWR’s 2019 season will be announced at a later date.
