MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Ryan Preece will compete in multiple NASCAR Cup Series races for Rick Ware Racing this season as a part of the team’s alliance with Stewart-Haas Racing.
Preece’s first race behind the wheel of the No. 15 Ford Mustang will be the inaugural Busch Light Clash at The Coliseum Feb. 6 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
Preece, who is contracted to SHR as its reserve driver, has competed in the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, where he’s collected a combined (28) wins.
“Ryan is a great addition to the RWR lineup for 2022,” said team owner Rick Ware. “His talent on the race track has been shown through his achievements in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR Xfinity Series. Our alliance with SHR and Ford has allowed us to put a wheelman behind the wheel, starting at the quarter-mile showdown in LA.”
With a career’s worth of short-track racing experience, Preece is looking forward to the Clash at The Coliseum.
“Being a part of the Clash at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum is special to me because of the opportunity it presents,” said Preece. “A quarter-mile bullring is the type of race track that I have had a lot of success on and I’m looking forward to the future races ahead as well.”
