MADISON, N.C. — Bobby McCarty will pilot the No. 6 R&S Race Cars house car for Marcus Richmond and Steve Stallings in the CARS Tour Late Model Stock Car series.
“I am beyond excited to start the next chapter of my racing career with R&S Race Cars in 2023,” McCarty said. “Brooke and I had several options for 2023 and we both believe driving R&S Race Cars for Marcus (Richmond) and Steve (Stallings) is the best option for us to go out compete and win races immediately.
“I have confidence in race cars they build and the experience and notebook we already have moving forward. It’s an incredible opportunity for me to reunite with some of the folks that I have worked with in the past and I can’t wait to get to work. As a team, we will set the bar high and have high expectations heading into next season.”
The three-time CARS Tour LMSC champion gives the team a boost heading into the new season.
“To have Bobby McCarty as part of our R&S Race Cars family in 2023 is extremely exciting,” Richmond said. “I met Bobby back in 2013 through Steve Stallings and started helping him with set ups when he was running his family-owned operation. Since then, we have built a strong relationship and have a lot of wins to show for the hard work and the effort put forth. He brings a lot of experience and knowledge to our program that will only make us stronger.
“Bobby also will be a huge part of our driver development program here at R&S Race Cars. His mentorship and his willingness to go out of his way to help our young drivers including Conner Jones and Logan Clark will be instrumental in their driver development.”
Along with McCarty, Richmond has also added veteran crew chief David Triplett, who serve on top of the box for McCarty.
“Bringing David on board to crew chief Bobby was a no brainer,” Richmond said. “The two of them have worked so closely together for so long and won a lot of races and championships.
“Having David work with Bobby also allows me to step back and focus on the day-to-day operations as well as be an asset to all our teams in house teams as well as our customers.”
