The Van Wieringen’s double down with Rette Jones Racing in 2020

MOORESVILLE, N.C.: Rette Jones Racing (RJR) announced today that siblings Dominique and Tristan Van Wieringen will double down and compete in ARCA Menards Series competition beginning with Saturday afternoon’s Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire.

Dominique Van Wieringen will drive the team’s No. 30 DuroByte Ford Fusion in this weekend’s ARCA Menards Series season-opener, while brother Tristan will take the wheel two days later on Monday night at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway for the ARCA Menards Series East season-opener.

Overall, Dominique Van Wieringen is planning to compete in a number of ARCA Menards Series races, while Tristan is set to return to the East Series and run for the series’ championship in 2020.

Other races slated for Dominique Van Wieringen include Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway, Michigan International Speedway, Chicagoland (Ill.) Speedway, Pocono (Pa.) Raceway and Kansas Speedway.

As for Daytona, Dominique Van Wieringen returns to the 2.5-mile superspeedway after setting the fastest time in preseason testing last month. Saturday’s 80-lap race will mark her ARCA Menards Series debut.

“I’m really excited about getting this opportunity to compete at Daytona for Rette Jones Racing,” said Dominique Van Wieringen, a veteran of ARCA East competition. “As we proved last month, we have a really fast race car and I can’t wait to get on the track and showcase that speed once again and have the opportunity to race for a win in my ARCA debut.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

For Tristan Van Wieringen, he’s excited to return to the ARCA East Series after a brief sabbatical and is eager to chase a championship for Rette Jones Racing on the heels of the Mooresville, N.C.’s career-best year in the regional development series.

“2020 is going to be a lot of fun and obviously a big year for the Van Wieringen family,” offered Tristan Van Wieringen. “I’m very happy for my sister on elevating her racing career in ARCA while I get a chase to run for wins and chase a championship in the East Series with Mark.

“I think Rette Jones Racing proved a lot during the last half of the season last year and I’m eager to pick up where they left off. New Smyrna should be a lot of fun on Monday night.”

While the racing styles will differ completely for the brother and sister rivalry, both plan to cheer each other on both on and off the track.

“Tristan has always been my number one fan and vice-versa,” added Dominique Van Wieringen. “Daytona is probably going to be the biggest race of my career and I’m thankful he’ll be there to support me. It’s a big stage where everyone is eager to perform but I think everyone will see that we are a determined bunch from top to bottom and we hope to be in Victory Lane a lot this season.”

For 21-year-old Tristan, he hopes to earn a career-best in East Series competition on Monday night.

“I think the East Series is going to be a stiff series this year,” he said. “I know there isn’t as many races – but that doesn’t mean the competition is going to slack any. I learned a lot in my seven races in 2018 and I just need to capitalize on that in a big way starting on Monday night.

“If we can do that – then we can move forward with some momentum and look forward with nothing but positivity.”

DuroByte, a leading provider of innovative electronic design, build and manufacturing will also double down its support in 2020 and support Tristan Van Wieringen too.

“2020 is going to be busy for Rette Jones Racing, but I’m ready,” said team co-owner Mark Rette. “This is a unique situation having both Dominique and Tristan race for Rette Jones Racing. Both are extremely talented and are keen on delivering results. I think we’re going to win some races, but also have a lot of fun too.”

The Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire (80 laps | 200 miles) is the first of 20 races on the 2020 ARCA Menards Series schedule. Practice begins Fri., Feb. 7 with a one-hour session from 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. A final practice session has been etched in from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Group qualifying is set for race day, Sat., Feb. 8 at 12:30 p.m. The season-opener for the 68th consecutive ARCA season is set to take the green flag shortly after 4:30 p.m. The event will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), while ARCARacing.com will stream live timing and scoring throughout the entire weekend festivities.

Rette Jones Racing looks ahead to 2020 ARCA Menards Series East season

MOORESVILLE, N.C.: On the heels of a breakthrough season in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE), Rette Jones Racing (RJR) is already focused on next season where the Mooresville, N.C.-based team eyes to have an exalted presence in the rebranded ARCA Menards Series East.

With driver Spencer Davis set to tackle new objectives with Rette Jones Racing next season, the No. 30 Ford Fusion seat is currently vacant but is being prepared for a new driver to steer the wheel when the ARCA East Series takes the green flag for the season-opener at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway on Feb. 10, 2020.

“We’ve had a lot of discussions about our ARCA Menards Series East program next year, but we don’t have anything signed just yet,” said Rette Jones Racing co-owner Mark Rette. “It was a great season for our organization with a lot to be proud of.

“The guys have been working hard on our fleet of race cars to prepare them for next season with the focus to be a little better than we were this season.”

The 2019 K&N Pro Series East season saw Rette Jones Racing earn their first series victory with Davis at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in August to coincide with six top-five and 11 top-10 finishes in 12 races overall.

The team also tied for a career-high third in the overall championship standings.

“I don’t think anyone will disagree that Rette Jones Racing only continued to get better as the season progressed and what we learned will make us even more potent in 2020,” added Rette.

“The 2020 ARCA Menards Series East season only consists of seven races, but we can do those races cost-effectively while also striving for the championship too. We also will be readily prepared for competition in the ARCA Menards Series West, ARCA Menards Series and the ARCA Menards Series Showdown if needed too.

“We hope to make some formal announcements in January.”

Spencer Davis, Rette Jones Racing return to Truck Series competition for season finale

HOMESTEAD, Fla.: With their NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) season complete, Rette Jones Racing will compete in Friday’s Ford EcoBoost 200 at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway looking to propel driver Spencer Davis to his second top-10 of the season.

Poised to make his fifth NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) start of the year and fourth with Rette Jones Racing, the duo looks to recover from another strong effort that was derailed in the closing laps at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway where a flat tire relegated the team to an 18th-place finish.

With their No. 11 truck repaired and ready for the race track, the Mooresville, N.C.-based team led by crew chief and team owner Mark Rette are optimistic about the final 134 laps of the 2019 season.

“I’m thankful for the opportunity to race at Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend,” said Davis. “Anytime I can hop in a truck and gain some additional on-track experience is a good thing. A blessing really.

“We’ve been working hard on this truck since Las Vegas and the K&N East finale at Dover to get it ready for Homestead. I’ve never been there, but I’m upbeat about the opportunity to go and conquer another race track.”

For Homestead, Hearn Industrial Services which specializes in in transportation, warehousing, quality containment and inspection services and assembly sequencing operations to support the automotive and other industries will serve as the team’s primary partner in Miami.

Season-long partners ALLPRO Corporation and Tower Sealants will serve as associate partners for the season-finale.

ALLPRO Corporation is a business-to-business purchasing cooperative comprised of a network of independently owned paint and decorating product retailers. They serve over 280 such member retailers who represent approximately 1,400 storefronts located throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe.

Tower Sealants is a manufacturer of top-quality caulks and sealants. With the strong financial backing of M-D Building Products, Tower Sealants started construction of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in September of 2005 and opened for business March 1, 2006.

“I’m very humbled to represent Hearn Industrial Services this weekend at Homestead,” added Davis. “They have a huge presence in Canada and have begun expanding their services to the United States.

“It’s important for me to go to Homestead and leave nothing on the table and bring our partners and everyone on this Rette Jones Racing team a strong finish that we can proud about going into the offseason while looking ahead to 2020.”

For Rette, he is optimistic about Homestead, but believes he has one of the best drivers in the field to negotiate the tough 1.5-mile speedway and raise the clout of Rette Jones Racing.

“No matter what happens on Friday, it’s been a heck of a season for Rette Jones Racing and our driver Spencer Davis,” said Rette. “We won a race in the K&N East Series, led laps, got a top-10 in trucks and more. When you sit back and thing about it, it’s really a lot to be proud of.

“To see the maturity in Spencer throughout the year has been equally fun to watch. A devoted worker by day, a fierce racer by night – his determination to succeed is parallel with some of the big names in stock car racing.

“We’ll go to Homestead and leave nothing on the table and try to bring Hearn Industrial Services a great finish.”

RJR is co-owned by Canadian entrepreneur and former race car driver Terry Jones.

This season in K&N East Series competition, RJR earned one win, six top-five and 11 top-10 finishes in 12 races and finished fourth in the driver and owner championship standings respectively, a career-high.

In 44 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned two victories (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016, Gateway 2019), two poles, achieved 20 top-five and 33 top-10 finishes. He has also 364 laps led in event competition.

Davis also has nine NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – four in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), three in 2019 for Rette Jones Racing and one for Niece Motorsports. He earned three top-10 finishes including a career-best of seventh in his series’ debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Spencer Davis, Rette Jones Racing race to honor in season-finale at Monster Mile

DOVER, Del.: On the strength of another top-five finish in last month’s Apple Barrel 125 at New Hampshire (NHMS) Motor Speedway, Rette Jones Racing and driver Spencer Davis (@SpencerDavis_29) trek to Dover International Speedway for Friday afternoon’s season-finale on a mission to earn their second win of the season in the General Tire 125.

The motivation for the Mooresville, N.C.-based team and the Dawsonville, Ga.-based driver is a plenty.

From storming into the spotlight as one of the strongest K&N Pro Series East teams on the circuit over the past three months to racing at the Miles’ “Monster Mile” in remembrance of Ron Jones, the father of Rette Jones Racing co-owner Terry Jones who recently passed away.

“There’s a lot of reasons to race hard this weekend at Dover,” said Davis who carries an average finish of 6.3 this season. “We’ve been very upbeat about our recent performance but the passing of Ron (Jones) has hit our race team pretty hard.

“I’m going there to win, not only for us but for in memory of Ron too. He’ll always be a part of this Rette Jones Racing team.”

Although two of Davis’s three previous starts at the Monster Mile hasn’t turned out like he had hoped, the 20-year-old is pumped to return to Dover and battle back and better his fourth-place K&N East effort in 2015.

“I like racing at Dover,” added Davis. “It’s a very fast place with a lot of banking and a track that honestly gives you goosebumps. I’ve always had speed at Dover – but my last two finishes haven’t been what I had hoped.

“On Friday afternoon, we have an opportunity to change that with our Rette Jones Racing team and hope to close out the K&N East season on a strong note. We’re bringing a fast car – the one we almost won with at Bristol, but we need to get our car dialed in practice for Dover so we can qualify near the front and stay there. Track position is crucial since the race is only 125 laps.”

With 11 races down and one to go, Davis’ first season aboard the No. 30 Rette Jones Racing Ford Fusion has been impressive. Scoring the team their first career victory last month at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, he has also earned six top-fives and 10 top-10 finishes. He has also controlled the field for 140 laps this year.

While the championship title is out of reach, the chance to steal second is a possibility and one of the team’s goals this weekend.

Overall, RJR has three starts at the 1.0-mile concrete oval and has two podium finishes in 2016 and 2017 respectively with third place runs from Dominique Van Wieringen and Tyler Dippel respectively.

“Rette Jones Racing has always had a lot of speed at Dover and I look forward to showcasing that on Friday afternoon,” Davis spoke. “Mark (Rette) and I have had a lot of fun this year, but nothing would make this season more complete than being able to bring home that Miles’ the Monster trophy.”

JRi Shocks returns as the primary partner for the K&N East season finale

JRi Shocks recently acquired by NASCAR Hall of Famer Ray Evernham was founded in 2007 by some of the most legendary innovators in motorsports to produce the world’s most technologically advanced highest performance suspension systems.

Season-long partners ALLPRO Corporation and Tower Sealants will also serve as major associate partners.

“We have a lot to be thankful for heading to Dover, but we’re keeping Terry and his family in our thoughts over the loss of Ron,” offered Rette.

“Ron was instrumental in helping Terry create his craft as a race car driver and has supported the continued growth of Rette Jones Racing over the year.

“His presence and smile will be missed but we will fight to put ourselves in Victory Lane in his honor. I believe Spencer will have one of the best cars on Friday afternoon, we just need to execute and hope it all pans out.

“No matter what, the season has been one to remember for our small team.”

The Georgian enters the 12th race of the season with one win, six top-five and 10 top-10 finishes overall, including Rette Jones Racing’s first career K&N Pro Series East victory at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway on Aug. 24.

With one race remaining, Davis is third in the championship standings, 42 markers in the arrears to championship leader Sam Mayer. Just 12 points separate Davis from the runner-up position in the championship standings occupied by Chase Cabre.

In 43 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned two victories (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016, Gateway 2019), two poles, achieved 20 top-five and 32 top-10 finishes. He has also 364 laps led in event competition.

Davis also has nine NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – four in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), three in 2019 for Rette Jones Racing and one for Niece Motorsports. He earned three top-10 finishes including a career-best of seventh in his series’ debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The General Tire 125 (125 laps | 125 miles) is the 12th of 12 races on the 2019 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule. Practice begins for the one-day show on Fri., Oct. 4 from 9:00 a.m. – 10:20 a.m. Group qualifying is set for later at 12:00 p.m. The race will take the green flag in the late afternoon at approximately 5:00 p.m. The event will be televised live on FansChoice.TV, while on a tape-delayed basis on NBC Sports Network (NCBSN) on Wed., Oct. 9 at 6:00 p.m. (ET).

Spencer Davis, Rette Jones Racing seek back-to-back K&N East victories at New Hampshire

LOUDON, New Hampshire: Characterized as one of the strongest NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKPSE) teams on the circuit right now, Rette Jones Racing (RJR) and driver Spencer Davis (@SpencerDavis_29) head to New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) for Saturday afternoon’s Apple Barrel 125 looking for back-to-back triumphs.

Last month, Davis drove the Mooresville, N.C.-based team to their first career K&N Pro Series East victory at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway in a late-race restart.

The Gateway victory capitalized on the team’s super performance at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway where the team led a whopping 137 laps.

Returning to New Hampshire’s “Magic Mile”, Davis alongside crew chief and co-team owner Mark Rette look to improve on their seventh-place finish in the penultimate K&N East race of the season.

“We are still riding the momentum of our performances the last couple of races, especially the Gateway win,” said Davis, a native of Dawsonville, Ga. “I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am of this team.

“Everyone has put a lot of man-hours at the shop to get our cars turned around between Bristol and Gateway and to be able to bring home the checkered flag was the perfect reward for our efforts.”

While New Hampshire is one of Rette Jones Racing’s nine top-10 finishes in 10 races this season, the 20-year-old says his team has to be better in order to live up to the team’s expectations of the last month and a half.

“We feel pretty confident going back to New Hampshire,” added Davis. “Mark and I felt like we know what we were missing at New Hampshire in July and we can go back there and be a lot more competitive. The weather is going to completely different than what we experienced this summer and with New Hampshire being a temperature-sensitive track – I think we can make gains and contend for back-to-back wins.”

“We’re 43 points out of the lead, I feel like that’s a stretch, but Chase is only 13 points ahead of us, so while we want to get two more wins this season, we have to think about points too,” sounded Davis. “These K&N East races have the tendency to get frantic in the closing laps, so as a team we need to be prepared for anything.

“The goal for us at New Hampshire is to do what we’ve been doing lately. Qualify strong, led laps and be around when it counts.”

Season-long partners ALLPRO Corporation and Tower Sealants will return to their co-primary roles for Saturday’s triple-header with the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and the NASCAR Pinty’s Series respectively, all apart of the track’s Full Throttle Fall Weekend.

ALLPRO Corporation is a business-to-business purchasing cooperative comprised of a network of independently owned paint and decorating product retailers. They serve over 280 such member retailers who represent approximately 1,400 storefronts located throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe.

Tower Sealants is a manufacturer of top-quality caulks and sealants. With the strong financial backing of M-D Building Products, Tower Sealants started construction of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in September of 2005 and opened for business March 1, 2006.

“I couldn’t be prouder of this team and Spencer after Gateway,” offered Rette. “We wanted to go to Gateway in the K&N combination race and finish what we started at Bristol and Spencer got the job for us. I think we can do it again this weekend at New Hampshire.

“I know that we didn’t have the best finish in July, but we have a plan and learned so much as a team since then that we should be in great shape on Saturday afternoon. Like I mentioned before, this team is very determined, and Spencer is driving his guts out.”

For Saturday’s race, RJR will carry a decal in remembrance of former Modified champion Mike Stefanik who perished in a plane crash on Sept. 15.

The Georgian enters the 11th race of the season with one win, five top-five and nine top-10 finishes overall, including Rette Jones Racing’s first career K&N Pro Series East victory at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway on Aug. 24.

With two races remaining, Davis is third in the championship standings, 43 markers in the arrears to championship leader Sam Mayer. Just 13 points separate Davis from the runner-up position in the championship standings.

In 42 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned two victories (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016, Gateway 2019), two poles, achieved 19 top-five and 31 top-10 finishes. He has also 364 laps led in event competition.

Davis also has nine NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – four in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), three in 2019 for Rette Jones Racing and one for Niece Motorsports. He earned three top-10 finishes including a career-best of seventh in his series’ debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The Apple Barrel 125 (125 laps | 125 miles) is the 11th of 12 races on the 2019 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule.

Spencer Davis; Rette Jones Racing ride momentum to Truck Series return at Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, Nev.: One of the hottest duos in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East is headed back to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS).

On the heels of winning their first K&N East race together last month at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway, Rette Jones Racing and driver Spencer Davis trek to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway with momentum on their side for Friday night’s World of Westgate 200.

Of course, RJR or the 20-year-old Davis didn’t need the momentum of their K&N East triumph at Gateway to carry them to Sin City. After all, the team performed magnificently in their most recent Truck Series race at Kentucky Speedway in July – where the team finished eighth in their second Truck Series event of the season.

With tons of confidence on their side, the pair heads to Las Vegas looking to double down and deliver back-to-back top-10 performances.

“I’m really proud of my Rette Jones Racing team,” said Davis. “We had a great finish at Kentucky Speedway in the Truck Series and were able to build on that confidence over to our K&N program, especially at Bristol Motor Speedway and then at Gateway where we brought home the checkered flag.

“Of course, it’s important for us not to get overconfident. These Truck Series races are though, especially in the Playoffs. I expect a competitive field on Friday night and we just need to take the same approach as Kentucky and hope it delivers us another good finish.”  

The biggest benefit of the team’s approach at Kentucky was not beating themselves on the race track. Knowing Las Vegas is expected to be an intense race, Davis says their strategy throughout the day will be identical.

“We’re expecting a lot of trucks, so we need to make sure we have a good balance during practice and lay down a good lap in qualifying to make sure we’re in the show. From there, it’s just making laps – making sure we’re keeping up the adjustments and being around for the end to fight.

“I don’t get a lot of opportunities to run these Truck Series races, so I appreciate Mark (Rette), the guys and all our sponsors for allowing Las Vegas to happen.”

Davis, a native of Dawsonville, Ga. efforts behind the wheel of the No. 11 truck for Las Vegas will be supported by ALLPRO Corporation and Tower Sealants.

ALLPRO Corporation is a business-to-business purchasing cooperative comprised of a network of independently owned paint and decorating product retailers. They serve over 280 such member retailers who represent approximately 1,400 storefronts located throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe.

Tower Sealants is a manufacturer of top-quality caulks and sealants. With the strong financial backing of M-D Building Products, Tower Sealants started construction of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in September of 2005 and opened for business March 1, 2006.

Rette is just as enthusiastic about returning to the Truck Series tour this weekend.

“The morale is really good lately at Rette Jones Racing,” offered Rette. “Everyone’s been working really hard because we want more checkered flags. We’re going to Las Vegas poised to win, but if we can’t – we hope to come out of there with a good finish that will allow us to build our program for the next truck race before the end of the season.

“Spencer is doing a really good job right behind the wheel and I don’t expect anything different on Friday night.”

Following Las Vegas, Rette Jones Racing shifts their attention for the penultimate NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race of the year in a return trip to New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) for the running of the Apple Barrel 125 on Sat. Sep. 21, 2019.

RJR is co-owned by Canadian entrepreneur and former race car driver Terry Jones.

In 42 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned two victories (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016, Gateway 2019), two poles, achieved 19 top-five and 31 top-10 finishes. He has also 364 laps led in event competition.

Davis also has eight NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – four in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), two in 2019 for Rette Jones Racing and one for Niece Motorsports. He earned three top-10 finishes including a career-best of seventh in his series’ debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The World of Westgate 200 (134 laps | 201 miles) is the 19th of 23 races on the 2019 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series schedule. Practice begins on Fri., Sept. 13 from 8:05 a.m. – 9:55 a.m. Qualifying is set for later in the day beginning at 2:35 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 6:00 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).

Rette Jones Racing relishes in first career K&N victory at Gateway

MOORESVILLE, N.C.: A gutsy restart by Rette Jones Racing (RJR) driver Spencer Davis paid off this past Saturday afternoon at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway as Davis was able to pass leader Sam Mayer on a restart with two laps to go and fended off Derek Kraus to claim his second career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East victory but the first triumph for Rette Jones Racing.

Davis returned to Victory Lane for the first time in nearly three and a half years, 1,181 days to be exact, while co-owner and crew chief Mark Rette saw the team’s hard work finally pay off with their breakthrough win on the heels of a stout performance a week prior at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.

“Tried to intimidate (Mayer) a little bit coming to the line,” Spencer Davis said. “The only way you can beat him–the only way I think you can beat this car this year is to make the kid make a mistake. Being a veteran of this series, I feel like I’m exceptional at restarts […] you couldn’t have asked for a better performance right there.

“I’m so proud of this Rette Jones Racing team and all of our partners who have made this season a success. We felt like we were robbed of a win a couple of weeks ago at Bristol, and we were so mad about what happened so late in the race at Bristol – that nothing was going to steal our thunder and keep us out of Victory Lane at Gateway. It’s so refreshing.”

For Rette, a championship ARCA crew chief who paired with former driver Terry Jones at the beginning of the 2015 , the team has been close to victory in the ARCA Menards Series and multiple top-five NASCAR K&N Pro Series East finishes – but on Saturday afternoon, Davis, a NASCAR Next alumnus brought home the team’s first checkered flag.

“Man, this feels so good,” offered Rette. “Terry and I had this vision when we started Rette Jones Racing that we would be a successful operation. We’ve done everything that we’ve accomplished to do in racing expect win. Now, thanks to Spencer’s determination, we have our first checkered flag and trophy.

“We hope it’s the first of many and can’t wait to get to New Hampshire Motor Speedway in a few weeks.”

With the team’s back-to-back top-five finishes at Bristol at Gateway, Davis has propelled to third in the championship standings with two races remaining. While the championship may be out of reach, Davis is on-par to a career-best year in the K&N Series where he has championship finishes of eighth (2016) and ninth (2018) respectively.

“We just need to keep what we’re doing the next two races and see what happens when that checkered flag waves at Dover,” added Davis. “It’s great we’ve been able to move from sixth to third in points over the last couple of races and who knows maybe with some luck, we can get another position, but I also know that we have to fight for our current spot too.

“There’s plenty of hungry drivers who want to make a statement before the end of the year, including us – so we just need to keep our heads down and focused and hope this momentum keeps rolling.”

Next up for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East is a return trip to New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) for the running of the Apple Barrel 125 on Sat. Sep. 21, 2019.

Rette Jones Racing will return to action in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series on Sept. 13, 2019, for the running of the World of Westgate 200 at Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway.

In 42 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned two victories (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016, Gateway 2019), two poles, achieved 19 top-five and 31 top-10 finishes. He has also 364 laps led in event competition.

Davis also has eight NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – four in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), two in 2019 for Rette Jones Racing and one for Niece Motorsports. He earned three top-10 finishes including a career-best of seventh in his series’ debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Spencer Davis, Rette Jones Racing ride momentum to Gateway

MADISON, Ill: Upbeat about their performance this past Thursday evening at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway, Rette Jones Racing (RJR) and driver Spencer Davis look for a repeat performance in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series combination race Saturday afternoon at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.

Rewinding to Thunder Valley, Davis in his flashy No. 30 Rette Jones Racing Ford Fusion started third and a led a whopping 137 of the 150 laps of the race before being bounced from the bottom groove of the race track late in the Bush’s Beans 150.

Davis would get shuffled back to fifth in the final running order, but undoubtedly the team’s season-high performance at the “World’s Fastest-Half-Mile” gives the Mooresville, N.C.-team some much-welcomed momentum heading into the heart of Illinois.

“I’m not going to lie, Bristol was hard to swallow,” driver Spencer Davis said. “I really thought we had a win in the books, but it just wasn’t meant to be. I’m proud of Mark (Rette) and the Rette Jones Racing team for bringing me a good car and I’m hopeful we can go to Gateway this weekend and have an opportunity to finish what we started.”

The Dawsonville, Ga. native returns to World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway as the defending NASCAR K&N Pro Series polesitter but the NASCAR Next alumnus is hoping to better his performance in the race, where has hindered by brake issues.

“Gateway is a fun race track,” added Davis. “I think we can go back there and get ourselves our first pole of the season and overcome the issues from a year and have another strong performance.

“Gateway is a fast race track for being just a mile and a quarter. Its straightaways provide great speed and momentum to pass in the sweeping corners. It’s a place that provides great racing in tight quarters. Can’t wait to get there.”

For his battle in the 10th race of the season, Rette has elected to bring back chassis No. 003, the same Ford Fusion the 20-year-old participated with at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Iowa Speedway this season, yielding back-to-back top-10 finishes of seventh and ninth respectively.

“This is a good car for us,” sounded Davis. “We would have had a much better finish at Iowa if not for a botched late-race restart. Like Iowa, this is a combination race with the K&N East and West, so we take a little extra pride in these races to make sure we’re as competitive as possible.

“I feel very comfortable with the setup we’re going with and I just hope it equals speed on the race track.”

Season-long partners ALLPRO Corporation and Tower Sealants will return to their co-primary roles for Saturday’s double-header with the NTT IndyCar Series Bommarito Automotive Group 500.

ALLPRO Corporation is a business-to-business purchasing cooperative comprised of a network of independently owned paint and decorating product retailers.

“So proud of this team and especially Spencer after Bristol,” offered Rette. “We proved to everyone that we are on the verge of winning our first race. I think we can do it before the end of the season. This team is very determined and Spencer is driving his guts out.

“We had a strong car at Bristol, just got moved at the end. I think we can go to Gateway this week and have an equal performance as Bristol but finish what we started. Just can’t thank Spencer and our partners enough for sticking by our team this season.”

The Georgian enters the 10th race of the season with four top-five and eight top-10 finishes overall, including a season-high fourth-place run at South Boston (Va.) Speedway in May.

With three races remaining, Davis is fifth in the championship standings, 49 markers in the arrears to championship leader Sam Mayer. Just 10 points separate Davis from fourth in the championship standings.

In 41 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned one victory (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016), two poles, achieved 18 top-five and 30 top-10 finishes. He has also 361 laps led in event competition.

Davis also has eight NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – four in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), two in 2019 for Rette Jones Racing and one for Niece Motorsports.

Spencer Davis, Rette Jones Racing hope to roar in Thunder Valley

BRISTOL, Tenn.: Back in Thunder Valley, Rette Jones Racing (RJR) and driver Spencer Davis invade Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway for Thursday night’s Bush’s Beans 150 hoping to better their fifth-place finish from the spring and celebrate in Victory Lane in NASCAR K&N Pro Series East competition.

Davis and the No. 30 Rette Jones Racing team are eager to deliver at the “World’s Fastest-Half-Mile” on the heels of a solid top-10 finish at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International on Aug. 2.

While the team has stacked up the top-10 finishes this season, as the K&N Pro Series East season begins to wind down, Davis and crew chief and co-owner Mark Rette are determined to save their best for last and throw down performances that will keep everyone talking.

“I’m looking forward to Bristol this week,” said Davis. “It’s one of my favorite places to race. Things happen in a hurry at Bristol, but it’s a race track that you have to embrace. We qualified sixth there in the spring and had top-five car.
“We left Bristol though in April with more to desire and I think we can go back there this week and be a little better and have a strong run on Thursday night.”

Davis is aiming for his fourth consecutive top-10 finish at the 0.533-mile concrete oval. Since 2017, the 20-year-old has delivered two top-five and a seventh-place outing. A 14th place finish in his track debut in 2016 is his worst outing at Bristol in his previous four starts.

“Bristol is a lot like all the short tracks, track position is crucial,” sounded Davis. “150 laps go by in a hurry at Bristol, so we need to make sure we’re taking advantage of the cautions and putting ourselves in the right position to strike. I really want to be carrying the momentum off the corners to attack on the straightaways.

“There always seems to be a lot more attention to the summer race at Bristol and I’m eager to deliver on that. Mark (Rette) is a big fan of Bristol, so as a team we’re going there with high expectations and anything less than a top-five finish would be disappointing.”

The Mooresville, N.C.-based team welcomes JRi Shocks back as the primary partner for the K&N East
race at Bristol for the ninth race of the season.

JRi Shocks recently acquired by NASCAR Hall of Famer Ray Evernham was founded in 2007 by some of the most legendary innovators in motorsports to produce the world’s most technologically advanced highest performance suspension systems.

Season-long partners ALLPRO Corporation and Tower Sealants will serve as major associate marketing partners for Thursday night’s anticipated thriller.

ALLPRO Corporation is a business-to-business purchasing cooperative comprised of a network of independently owned paint and decorating product retailers. They serve over 280 such member retailers who represent approximately 1,400 storefronts located throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe.

“We’re fired up to go to Bristol after the off-week,” added Rette. “We’ve had a pretty decent summer. More top-10s than top-fives but we have an opportunity to change the direction of that on Thursday night at Bristol.

“We were pretty good in April. We were competitive. One more adjustment and I think we could have been top-three. We’ll fight really hard to be as strong as we can during practice and qualifying and then focus on the race and see if we can’t finally put Rette Jones Racing in Victory Lane.”

Davis, the Dawsonville, Ga. native enters the ninth race of the season with three top-five and seven-10 finishes overall, including a season-high fourth place run at South Boston (Va.) Speedway in May.
With four races remaining, Davis is sixth in the championship standings, 43 markers in the arrears to championship leader Derek Kraus. Just 13 points separate Davis from the top-five in the championship standings.

In 40 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned one victory (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016), two poles, achieved 17 top-five and 29 top-10 finishes. He has also 224 laps led in event competition.

Davis also has eight NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – four in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM), two in 2019 for Rette Jones Racing and one for Niece Motorsports.

Spencer Davis; Rette Jones Racing seeks fourth top-five of 2019 at Iowa Speedway

NEWTON, Iowa: Delivering their sixth top-10 of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) season last Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS), Rette Jones Racing (RJR) and NASCAR Next alumnus Spencer Davis head to the Midwest looking for a strong top-five finish in Friday night’s K&N combination Casey’s General Stores 150 at Iowa Speedway.

The first of two combination races which collides the world of both the K&N East and West divisions certainly brings more competition to the forefront – but for Davis and his Rette Jones Racing team led by crew chief and co-owner Mark Rette, they’re ready for the additional challengers at a place they feel they can win.

“New Hampshire was solid for us, but Iowa should be really good for us this weekend,” said Davis. “We’ve had speed in our cars this season and I think we’re making improvements. We just have to get over that one last hump and we’ll be in Victory Lane. We have a good chance to do it on Friday night.”

Statically speaking, Iowa is one of Davis’s best race tracks. In three starts at the 0.875-mile oval, Davis has finished no worse than ninth and carries a second and fourth place efforts to boost. Last summer, Davis finished fourth after starting sixth and is eager to build on that performance with Rette on top of the box.

“Iowa is like a big speedway,” offered Davis. “It’s a cool place where there’s a lot of room to race and usually tire wear becomes a factor. Also, I think track position is equally important. For us, you just have to make sure your car can transition nicely to the track conditions when darkness sets it.

“Strategy can be a factor, including fuel-mileage. I think that’s why Iowa is such a great place because a lot of things can happen, and the racing is pretty spectacular. Can’t wait to get there.”

Officially halfway through the season, Davis sits sixth in the championship standings, a mere 27 points out of the lead.

“We gotta keep fighting and hopefully erase the deficit,” added Davis. “The second half of the season is our team to focus forward and make a serious challenge for the championship.”

Davis’s efforts behind the wheel of the No. 30 Ford for Iowa will be supported by ALLPRO Corporation and Tower Sealants.

ALLPRO Corporation is a business-to-business purchasing cooperative comprised of a network of independently owned paint and decorating product retailers. They serve over 280 such member retailers who represent approximately 1,400 storefronts located throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and parts of Europe.

“We’re ready for Iowa,” added Rette. “This is a tough three-race stretch for the K&N Series between New Hampshire, Iowa and Watkins Glen, but I think we’re going to be fine. I’m ready to see Spencer be rewarded for all of his hard work with a trip in Victory Lane.

“We’re just past the halfway point of the season and we still hope to mix things up and contend for the championship. That’s our goal and we’re sticking to it.”

In 38 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned one victory (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016), two poles, achieved 17 top-five and 27 top-10 finishes. He has also 224 laps led in event competition.
