THOMASVILLE, N.C. — Rick Ware Racing announced Friday that Spencer Boyd will race for the team in the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
With approximately half of the schedule locked in, the team will look to add as many races as possible in both Truck and XFINITY competition.
Boyd drove for RWR in his NASCAR XFINITY Series debut at Iowa earlier this year, making one other XFINITY start and three Truck starts in 2016 as well.
“Our effort in 2016 was about getting approved for all tracks and feeling comfortable at this level of racing,” said Boyd. “We worked with many great partners to achieve a successful debut season. I am thankful for the opportunities I was given in 2016, now look forward to going fast and competing with Rick Ware in 2017.”
The relationship between the two parties dates back to 2012, when Spencer was running Legends Cars with Farbo Motorsports. He and Ware’s son Cody were teammates and through much of that summer, roommates as well.
The Ware and Boyd families envisioned a future where the two would work together again on a bigger stage.
“I have followed Spencer’s career for many years now,” said Ware. “He has impressed me at every level. Our organization is excited to have this young talent on our team and personally it’s rewarding to see our dreams of years ago come to life.”
Although the truck number has yet to be determined, Rick Ware Racing will show up with a new Chevrolet Silverado truck for Boyd’s Daytona debut.
“Participating in Speed Weeks is a dream come true,” added Boyd. “I’m looking forward to working with a crew chief and team week after week so we build on our experiences at the shop and on the track. Our goals and values are aligned. Our sponsorship roster is coming together. We will be going to the race track to race!”
