SS GreenLight Racing & Rick Ware Racing have announced their extension of an alliance in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, fielding the car №17 for the 2021 season.
Rick Ware Racing originally planned to field two full-time Xfinity cars in 2021. However, as the team is already fielding four Cup Series cars, two IndyCar Series teams and participation on IMSA, they decided to continue their partnership with GreenLight to keep a higher competitive level.
“We are excited to continue this alliance with RWR. Rick was able to step in last year at a time when we found ourselves at a crossroads, and it proved to be a very good thing for both GreenLight, RWR and all the drivers and team members involved,” said the owner of SS GreenLight racing Bobby Dotter.
“The way things played out last season certainly made this a very easy decision as we look to the 2021 season and beyond. While the 08 number holds a very special place in my family’s history in racing, we are excited to write a new chapter with the 17,” he concluded.
Rick Ware, the owner of RWR, said: “We had a couple of options for RWR’s involvement in the Xfinity series in 2021, but at the end of the day it made sense to further our relationship with Bobby and the team at SS GreenLight Racing.
“The personnel that Bobby put into place proved to be a hardworking group, who helped our drivers put their best foot forward and have a good bit of success, coming close to parking our car in Victory Lane on a couple of different occasions,” he concluded.
