“(We) Fought the weather all weekend at 5 Flags Speedway and Mobile International Speedway, but the guys at Southern Super Series did a great job getting everything in. Hats off to those guys!” Dalton Sargeant said. “Finished 6th at Mobile International Speedway, it’s a place where we’ve always struggled for one reason or another, but really proud of my Wauters Motorsports guys for their effort, that’s the best we’ve ever been there.”

Sargeant and Wauters Motorsports have yet to have posted a win this season, but Sargeant’s determination in the No. 5 Galt Toyota Camry has continued to be a driving force for the duo. They will head back to Mobile Speedway for the next Southern Super Series race August 22, 2015.

Dalton Sargeant & Wauters Motorsports Gear Up for Gulf Coast Swing in Southern Super Series Events

Driver and Team Search for First Super Late Model Win of the Season

Pensacola, FL (July 24, 2015)- Dalton Sargeant is set to run at 5 Flags Speedway Friday, July 24, 2015 and at Mobile Speedway on Saturday, July 25th in the Southern Super Series Gulf Coast doubleheader.

rw daltonSargeant will pilot the No. 5 Galt Wauters Motorsports entry in both the Super Late Model Blizzard in Pensacola, Fl and in the Miller Lite 100 in Mobile, AL this weekend.

The team and driver have close to victory this season and have high hopes that this weekend will deliver a trophy to the duo.

“We’re really excited for a return to Pensacola and Mobile this weekend in our No. 5s GALT Wauters Motorsports Toyota Camry,” Dalton Sargeant said.  “We had a terrible outing last time at Pensacola with a parts failure that was out of our control, so we’re definitely looking for redemption this weekend. With the addition of Daniel Hemric to Wauters Motorsports it’s really stepped up our program, we’ve learned a lot from him and we’ll be applying some of those nuances at Pensacola. It’s getting closer and closer to the Snowball Derby so we’re treating this race and a test, putting a lot of effort into a package we’d like to come back with in December.”

Daniel Hemric Brings Home Fourth for Wauters Motorsports in Redbud 300 at Anderson Speedway

IMG_2452Anderson, IN (July 19, 2015)- Daniel Hemric piloting the No. 5 First Community Bank Wauters Motorsports Champion Racing Association (CRA) Series late model brought home a fourth place finish in the Redbud 300 at Anderson Speedway Saturday night.

Hemric, who was the 2014 winner of the prestigious race, started in the fifth place position for the 300 lap race.  He took the lead on lap 127 and maintained it until the half way break on lap 150.

The Wauters Motorsports team gambled taking four fresh Hoosier tires and restarted in the 12th place position for the second half of the race.  Hemric was able to drive up to the fourth place position for the finish at the Anderson, Indiana racetrack.

“We had pretty good balance for the Wauters Motorsports car at the beginning (of the race),” Daniel Hemric said.   “It just didn’t work out there when we took four tires, which kind of put us back in track position. We gave up a little bit; we weren’t as good there in the last half (of the race). Congratulations to Erik (Jones) on the win.  Everything he gets in he is making the most of – so congratulations to those guys.  Can’t thank Richie Wauters Van Dorn, Curtis Performance, we worked our tails off on these shocks to get them where we needed them to be but we just came up short.”

Hemric will head back to his full time ride in the No. 14 NTS NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team for the dirt race at Eldora Speedway, Wednesday, July 22, 2015.  He will be back in the Wauters Motorsports SLM for the Winchester 400 Sunday, October 11, 2015.
