Frontstretch Podcast: Gearing Up For Darlington, Rick Ware Updates Financial Status of Team During Hiatus

In this week’s edition of the Frontstretch PodcastDustin Albino and Mike Neff discuss the final Pro Invitational Series race from North Wilkesboro, as well as NASCAR’s return this weekend at Darlington Raceway.

The duo chats safety guidelines that teams will need to follow for upcoming races, including victory lane celebrations. Meanwhile, Chicagoland Speedway, Richmond Raceway and Sonoma Raceway each lost a date on the schedule, being replaced by two races at Darlington and one at Charlotte Motor Speedway. What does this mean for Chicago’s future?

Finally, Rick Ware joins the show to give an update on where his team stands as NASCAR returns, changing race shops amidst a pandemic and how his team can acquire sponsors with limited sponsorship activation in the immediate future. (This interview was recorded prior to Sunday’s entry list coming out, noting Ware was the team owner of the No. 27 car, formerly of Premium Motorsports.)

About Dustin Albino

Dustin joined the Frontstretch team at the beginning of the 2016 season. 2020 marks his sixth full-time season covering the sport that he grew up loving. His dream was to one day be a NASCAR journalist, thus why he attended Ithaca College (Class of 2018) to earn a journalism degree. Since the ripe age of four, he knew he wanted to be a storyteller.
