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. Practice begins for the two-day show on Fri., Sept. 20 from 2:50 p.m. – 4:05 p.m. Group qualifying is set for race day, Sat., Sept. 21 at 9:30 a.m. The race will take the green flag later that day at approximately 1:20 p.m. The event will be televised live on FansChoice.TV, while on a tape-delayed basis on NBC Sports Network (NCBSN) on Wed., Sept. 25 at 6:00 p.m. (ET).

Spencer Davis; Rette Jones Racing take Kentucky momentum to New Hampshire

LOUDON, New Hampshire: Fresh off a top-10 finish in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) last week at Kentucky Speedway, Rette Jones Racing (RJR) and driver Spencer Davis (@SpencerDavis_29) are ready to get back down to business in Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East United Site Services 70 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS).

The Dawsonville, Ga. native eyes his return to the “Magic Mile” as the opportunity to recover from a disappointing 14th place finish in the K&N East most recent race at Memphis (Tenn.) International Raceway where he dropped from third to sixth in points following a mechanical failure.

Regrouped and ready to attack, Davis is turning to New Hampshire to return to championship form and put his Rette Jones Racing team in Victory Lane.

“I’m looking forward to New Hampshire, especially coming off a very good weekend at Kentucky,” said Davis. “It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve been on track in the K&N East Series – but I’m glad the business is getting back to normal on Saturday and I’m hopeful for a good finish.”

With a race being cut from the schedule in June, Davis knows that he has less opportunity to not only win a race but bounce back from their Memphis misfortune. Still, with plenty of racing on-deck between New Hampshire and the season-finale at Dover (Del.) International Speedway in three months, Davis says his team won’t go down without a fight.

“It’s going to take a lot of effort, but we’re going to make a big push towards this championship,” added Davis. “Mark and the guys have been busting their tails to get our No. 30 Ford Fusion ready for New Hampshire and we know Saturday’s race is about winning – but also about potential too.

“It’s going to be tough to claw back into the title hopes, but we’re not going down without a fight.”

Set for his 38th career K&N Eat Series start; Davis will make his sixth at Loudon’s 1.0-mile speedway. In his previous five runs, he one top-five and three top-10 finishes, including a track-best third last July.

Hoping to finish what he started last summer, Davis is hungry for his second career K&N East victory.

“Even though New Hampshire is a relatively flat race track, it’s not that easy to drive,” proclaimed Davis. “It’s all about how you carry your car off the corners and roll that straightaway. You need to have a good balance and plenty of speed that you can into the corners.

“Track positions is everything at New Hampshire too. It’s pretty hard to pass, even sometimes with a bumper – but it provides great racing and I don’t think many will complain about that.”

Davis’s efforts behind the wheel of the No. 30 Ford for NHMS 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 New Hampshire,” added Rette. “Our team’s hard work at Kentucky were rewarded with a good finish. We hope to go to New Hampshire and do more of the same. Spencer is really good at New Hampshire and we feel we’re bringing him a really fast No. 30 ALLPRO | Tower Sealants Ford Fusion and look forward to an opportunity to score our first career win on Saturday afternoon.”

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

In 37 career NASCAR K&N Pro Series East starts, Davis has earned one victory (Dominion (Va.) Raceway 2016), two poles, achieved 17 top-five and 26 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. He earned three top-10 finishes including a career-best of seventh in his series’ debut at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

The United Site Services 70 (70 laps | 70 miles) is the sixth of 12 races on the 2019 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East schedule. Practice begins for the two-day show on Fri., July 19 from 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. A final practice has been etched in from 6:00 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. Group qualifying is set for later in the night at approximately 7:05 p.m. The race will take the green flag on Sat., July 20 following the NASCAR Xfinity Series (NXS) race at approximately 6:45 p.m. The event will be televised live on FansChoice.TV, while on a tape-delayed basis on NBC Sports Network (NCBSN) on Wed., July 24 at 6:00 p.m. (ET).
