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.

The Ford EcoBoost 200 (134 laps | 201 miles) is the 23rd of 23 races on the 2019 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series 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). All times are local (Pacific).

Spencer Davis and Rette Jones Racing set to complete double duty at Daytona

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Fresh off a solid seventh-place finish in the rain-postponed New Smyrna 175 at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway, Rette Jones Racing and driver Spencer Davis (@SpencerDavis_29) head 15 minutes north to Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway where they hope to compete in Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250.

Monday night’s K&N Pro Series East opener gave Davis and co-owner and crew chief Mark Rette an opportunity to work together and while neither were completely satisfied with their performance, the finish does give them extra motivation heading into the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) opener on Feb. 15.

“I’m really appreciative of my Rette Jones Racing team,” said Davis. “It’s been a brutal couple of weeks trying to get ready for both the K&N race and the Truck race. Now that we have one race behind us, we can turn total concentration over to the truck and see what we can deliver.”
Davis’s efforts for Daytona will continue to be supported by ALLPRO and Tower Sealants.

“This is great exposure for our sponsors, especially on a national platform,” added Davis. “We kept ourselves near the front at the end of the K&N race – but hopefully we can qualify our No. 82 ALLPRO | Tower Sealants Ford near the front and stay in the hunt for all 100 laps.”

The Dawsonville, Ga. native will attempt to make his sixth NGOTS start on Friday night and is eager to duplicate his seventh-place outing with Kyle Busch Motorsports from last February.

“It’s going to be a tall task to duplicate what we did last year,” added Davis. “It’s a much more competitive field this year compared to last – but we’re staying positive and have a plan of attack. Mark (Rette) is super smart when it comes to setup and strategy. Once we get into this race, it will be all about avoiding the “Big One” and just being around in the end when it counts most.”

Crew chief and co truck-owner Mark Rette knows Daytona is always a tough challenge – but a task he knows they can conquer.

“We’re ready and we’ll go there and give nothing less than 100 percent,” added Rette. “We did OK at New Smyrna. It was a solid start to the year – I think we just got a little behind as far as track position. As for Daytona, it’s another beast.

“It’s going to be a close race to make on speed and we gotta be in the top-27. We’ll just see what happens. We have a dedicated bunch, a talented driver and great partners like ALLPRO and Tower Sealants, hopefully, all those mixed together can bring a good result on Friday night.”

In addition to ALLPRO and Tower Sealants serving as the title marketing partners for the opening round of the season, Rette Jones Racing also welcomes Horton Ave. Materials, Jones Group Demolition and Abatement, Ford Performance, JRI Shocks, Huntilar Corp. and Goodridge Fluid Transfer Systems as associate marketing partners for Friday night’s anticipated thriller.

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

In 33 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned one victory (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016), two poles, achieved 14 top-five and 23 top-10 finishes. He has also 224 laps led in event competition.

Davis, 20, also has five NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) starts to his credit – all in 2018 driving for Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM). He earned two top-10 finishes including a career-best of seventh in his series’ debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The NextEra Energy Resources 250 (100 laps | 250 miles) is the first of 23 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series races on the 2019 schedule. Practice begins on Thurs, Feb. 14 from 2:35 p.m. – 3:25 p.m. A final practice session is set for 4:35 p.m. – 5:25 p.m. Qualifying is set for race day, Fri., Feb. 15 beginning at 4:40 p.m. The 32-truck field will take the green flag shortly after 7:30 p.m. with live coverage on FOX Sports 1, the Motor Racing Network (Radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio (Satellite Radio, Channel 90).
