Rick Ware Racing adds another driver to their fold as Andy Seuss will make his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut in their No. 51 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
RWR most recently helped Bayley Currey make his premier series debut earlier this season. Ray Black Jr., Josh Bilicki, Cole Custer, Harrison Rhodes, and Kyle Weatherman also made their debuts for the organization.
Seuss will follow in the footsteps of fellow NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour alum Ryan Preece, who made his debut at NHMS in 2015. A veteran of the Modified Tour, he has just one start at NASCAR’s national level in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2016.
“It’s a dream come true, a dream I had honestly gave up on,” Seuss explained. “I can’t thank Rick enough for pursuing me to do this. To do it at my home track, where I’ll be surrounded by my family, friends and everyone that has supported me for so long just makes it that much more amazing.”
The Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 will be a hometrack race for the Hampstead, NH native. Although a New Englander, Seuss found success in the now-defunct NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour.
In the Southern Modified Tour, Seuss earned two championships in 2014 and 2015. He also had 22 victories, 70 top-five, and 93 top-10s in 115 starts. Seuss also started from the pole in 13 starts. In comparison, he had just three top-five finishes in the Northern (and now combined) Whelen Modified Tour.
“RWR is very excited to have a proven champion behind the wheel of the No. 51 Jacob Companies Monster Energy Cup Series car,” commented team owner Rick Ware. “I have been following Andy’s success for some time now, and I am thrilled that we were able to put this together.
“Having a New Hampshire driver, with proven success, in the car at NHMS is going to be very special. The entire RWR crew is ready to build Andy a good car and see what he can do with it!”
Seuss also has 12 starts in the ARCA Menards Series. He earned Our Motorsports’ best finish as an organization, runner-up at Talladega Superspeedway in 2017. Seuss has four top-10 finishes in ARCA competition.
To date, RWR’s best finish in the Cup Series was a 12th-place in the 2018 Daytona 500 with Justin Marks.
