Rick Ware Racing will join Stringer Performance for the DeWalt Carolina Nationals this weekend at zMax Dragway. Rick Ware Racing not only has four charters in the NASCAR Cup Series, but also fields an entry in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, NTT IndyCar Series, and NASCAR Pinty Series, and is a familiar name in the motorsports industry. 

RWR’s partners -- Nurtec ODT, boom! Mobile and Jacob Companies -- will be among the partners whose colors will be represented on Clay Millican’s dragster this weekend.

“I am very excited about this opportunity with Rick Ware Racing,” said team owner Doug Stringer. “We are in the heart of NASCAR country and welcome the opportunity to extend our race team to Rick and introduce the excitement of NHRA racing to the RWR partners.” 

Clay Millican drove his Parts Plus Top Fuel dragster to a round-one win last weekend at the Reading event and is currently ninth in the Countdown to the Championship.

“Heading into Charlotte this weekend, we need to keep the championship momentum going,” said Millican. “I am excited to have some new colors onboard my dragster this weekend and continue the momentum from last weekend in Reading.”

“An opportunity arose to partner together with Doug and Stringer Performance on a one-off race weekend at our home track, zMax Dragway,” said Ware. “I’ve always been a Top Fuel fan, and I’ve known Doug for years, so naturally this partnership made sense, especially with the track being in our backyard. We are excited to cross promote the RWR partners in the NHRA space and look forward to watching Clay compete in the DeWalt Carolina Nationals this weekend.”
