Rick Ware has joined the list of featured speakers during the 4th Annual Race Industry Week, Monday through Friday, Nov 27-Dec 1.
Rick Ware Racing (RWR) currently competes in the NASCAR Cup Series, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, NTT IndyCar Series and NHRA. Its organizational roots date back to Ware & Sons Racing with Rick and his father John Ware competing in the SCCA. They raced under the banner “Ware & Sons” as early as the 1960s when Rick went go-kart racing. Once of legal driving age, Rick joined his father John Ware in the SCCA and IMSA Series.
In 1983, Ware & Sons won Rookie of the Year honors in the California Sports Car Club with Rick behind the wheel. Ware & Sons with Rick as the driver went on to win several titles in that series, as well as SCCA and IMSA championships.
After a stint as a driver in the NASCAR Cup Series, Ware renamed the organization Ware Racing Enterprises in the 1990s and eventually Rick Ware Racing in 2004. In 2020, the team moved to Mooresville, North Carolina. The move coincided with RWR buying Premium Motorsports which added its No. 15 as a fourth full-time car in their stable and needing more space. Before the 2023 season, RWR moved from Mooresville to a shop in Concord, N.C. on the campus of RFK Racing, which the team began an alliance with in 2023.
