Reed Fifth in Winter Showdown with Wauters Motorsports

Mooresville, NC (February 6, 2019)-Bakersfield, CA native, Ryan Reed posted a fifth place finish Saturday Fifth Annual SPEARS Manufacturing Winter Showdown 300 Super Late Model (SLM) event at Kern County Raceway Park (KCRP) in the No. 5 Wauters Motorsports super late model.

Reed started in the seventh position after rain washed out qualifying on the high-banked paved half-mile oval track.

“I had such a great time in my first Winter Showdown,” Ryan Reed said.  “Richie (Wauters) and the guys did such a good job and brought an  awesome piece for us to race with.  I hate that we got damage early in the big wreck at the beginning of stage two.  I feel like we had one of the best long run cars and with the way the race played out we never got a chance to show that.  Still, a solid top-five and I hope I get to do it again next year!”

Reed pitted for tires after a multi-vehicle accident on the Bakersfield, CA track and was posed to pick up the top spot until the race was shortened due to a power outage in the area. The outage relegated the Wauters Motorsports team to a fifth place finish.

The two will team up again for what is deemed the “Richest Short Track Race in the Nation” February 2nd.

 “I’m so excited to race the Winter Showdown, Ryan Reed said.  “It’s been a race I’ve wanted to run since the first year. It being in my hometown and being one of the biggest short track races of the year is really special.  Obviously, going down there with Richie Wauters and his guys I know we will have a shot to win!”

This will be Wauters Motorsports third time racing at KCRP.  In 2015, Dalton Sargeant piloted the No. 5 SLM qualifying and finishing in the second-place position on the high-banked paved half-mile oval track.  Mason Mingus drove for Wauters Motorsports in 2018 finishing16th on the Bakersfield, CA race track.

“We are looking forward to having Ryan (Reed) in the No. 5 in the Winter Showdown,” team owner Richie Wauters said.  “Ryan is an excellent driver as you’ve seen in his NASCAR Xfinity Series career.  He is a wheelman and I know that we have a good shot to win.”

All American 400 – November 3rd & 4th, 2018

It’s an exciting week for Wauters MotorSports and driver Mason Mingus. They return to Masons hometown to race in the All American 400 at the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, TN.  This is one of the team’s favorite races of the year and especially for Mason coming home to race in his backyard.  Talking with Mason here is what he said about this weekend’s race.

“I always love being able to race close to home at the fairgrounds but especially at the All American 400. This race has a great history and I would mean a lot to me to get a win there. I feel like we have a pretty good car for this race, we ran the spring race with Richie as well and I felt like we had a great car. Richie always brings great cars and I have a lot of laps there so hopefully we can put those things together and pick up a good finish.”
– Mason Mingus

The team has been working on the car and the color scheme for several weeks and believe they have a great car for Masons home race.

Wauters MotorSports are known for fast short track cars and they look forward to maybe taking the Guitar trophy home this weekend.  Good luck to the team and Mason as they prepare and race this weekend.
