Tough Luck for Forrister & Wauters after a Multi-Truck Accident at Talladega Superspeedway

img_2466Lincoln, AL. (October 24, 2016)-Korbin Forrister in his first start with Wauters Motorsports, posted a 27th place finish after a multi-truck accident at Talladega Superspeedway in the Fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race.

Forrister placed the No. 5 All Secure Document Disposal Company Toyota Tundra in the 10th place position on the starting grid after advancing to the second round of qualifying on the 2.66-mile Alabama racetrack.

The Cedartown, GA native was able to stay in the top-10 during the opening stages of the 94 lap race advancing as high as the third place position until on lap 27 where he was knocked out of the draft sending him out of the drafting pack.

The Wauters Motorsports team brought Forrister down pit road on lap img_248036 taking four tires and fuel, coming in 27th and restarting 19th.  At the caution on lap 52, the veteran NCWTS crew chief, Richie Wauters called for a fuel only stop placing Forrister in the 16th position for the restart on lap 56.

Forrister advanced to the 11th place position and was looking at taking on the top 10 when another truck was tapped and sent into the high banked wall and back down across the track collecting Forrister and 13 other NCWTS teams.  The damage to the No. 5 All Secure Document Disposal Company Toyota Tundra was too severe to continue relegating Forrister and Wauters Motorsports to a 27th place finish in the Fred’s 250 powered by Coca-Cola NCWTS race at Talladega Superspeedway.

img_2455“We just got collected,” Korbin Forrister said.  “There was no place to go, unfortunately it destroyed the truck.  We were bad fast and knew we had a top-five or a winning truck.  When I got knocked out in the draft early in the race, we wanted to stay a little further back to avoid “the big one” but when it was time to go, there was no place to go and we were in it.  I can’t thank All Secure Document Disposal Company for coming onboard this weekend.  A huge thank you to Richie (Wauters) and all the guys on this No. 5 team, they are a topnotch team.  We were able to run with the Series’ regulars and it just shows the quality of what Wauters Motorsports trucks are capable of.  I just hope to get an opportunity to race with them in a full season and be a part of the (NCWTS) Chase next year.”

Korbin Forrister and Wauters Motorsports Team up for Talladega NCWTS Race with All Secure Document Disposal Company

Mooresville, NC (October 17, 2016)- Korbin Forrister, making his first NASCAR Camping World Trucks Series (NCWTS) start of the 2016, will pilot the No. 5 All Secure Document Disposal Company (ASDDC) Wauters Motorsports Toyota Tundra at Talladega Superspeedway, Saturday, October 22 in the running of the Fred’s 250.

16t5as-layout-rev-a7-01-002The Cedartown, GA native is no stranger to the 2.66-mile superspeedway having two prior NCWTS starts.  He also made his second start in an ARCA Racing Series race on the Lincoln, AL track earlier this year.

Forrister teamed up with veteran NASCAR crew chief and owner,  Richie Wauters earlier this year  and went back to asphalt racing.   The Wauters Super Late Model team and Forrister competed in the CARS Tour event at Myrtle Beach Speedway (Myrtle Beach, SC), the final Blizzard Series event at 5 Flags Speedway (Pensacola, FL) and the All-American 400 at Fairground Speedway Nashville (Nashville, TN).

“Richie (Wauters) is a great crew chief, the best I’ve ever had the privilege to work with,” Korbin Forrister said.  “When we met we decided to start at the Late Model (SLM) level.  I’ve been out of the seat most of this year and that’s hard racing when you’re in those (cars), they teach you the basics, hard racing and to feel the car and learn to give feedback to the crew chief the right away.  Plus the races I ran were a lot of laps, and seat time is hard to beat, I’ve learned a ton over the past three weekends that I wouldn’t have learned without being in those events.”

Wauters has one win (Kyle Busch 2009), three top five finishes in just five starts on Talladega Superspeedway as a NCWTS crew chief.

“Our relationship has developed well,” Forrister continued.  “He has been doing this for a long time and it shows week in and week out. He knows what needs to be done to get out front and stay out front.  He pushes you to be the best you can be every lap, and wants to do nothing but go out and win every weekend, and I like that, he’s got a lot of passion for this sport and winning. You don’t see that much anymore in this day and time. I feel like it’s a good fit here and I plan on racing with him for a long time as long as the funds are there.”

Richie Wauters:

“Wauters Motorsports is excited to be going racing at Talladega Superspeedway.  We’ve always enjoyed superspeedway racing.  I’ve always had good trucks and the Toyota Tundra should be strong this weekend with Korbin (Forrister) behind the wheel.  We are looking forward to getting some good seat time and exposure for Korbin this weekend.”

The Community of West Georgia is well represented on the No. 5 Tundra.   All Secure Document Disposal Company from Cedartown, GA is the primary sponsor with TwinMED, ReMED and DJ Flint serving as associate sponsors on the Wauters Motorsports entry.

“All Secure Document Disposal Company who is onboard with us this weekend is from my hometown,” Forrister explained.  “Tim Parker the owner has been a good friend of the family for a while now, he does a lot of stuff for us and I’m happy he’s able to be with us at Talladega since it’s so close to home.  He’s always asking me every weekend how we ended up or how we did, so now he’s going with us to Talladega I’m ready to get out there and put together a good run for him.  I want to thank the other sponsors who came on board to make this weekend possible, without all these people helping I wouldn’t be racing Talladega.”

The Fred’s 250 NCWTS race at Talladega Superspeedway is slated to begin at 1:00pm Saturday, October 22.  Fox Sports 1 will have live televised coverage of practice, qualifying and the 94 lap event beginning at 12:30pm.

Noah Gragson Rebounds to 11th in Winchester 400 with Wauters Motorsports

Winchester, IN (October 10, 2016)-Noah Gragson piloting the No. 5 SpeedVegas Wauters Motorsports Toyota Camry posted an 11th place finish in the Winchester 400 Sunday afternoon.  Gragson’s car broke a upper control arm on lap 42 and the Wauters Motorsports team was able to fix the part and send the young driver back out on lap 88 of the 400 lap race at Winchester Speedway.

img_1560The Speed Vegas Camry was still run the times of the lead cars but was not able to advance into the top-10 due to being multiple laps down.

Noah Gragson:

“The Wauters Toyota Camry was really fast today. We broke a Control Arm on lap 42 and we had to come in for repair. When we got back out we were many laps behind, but still ended up with a P11 finish thanks to the hard work of the team and the preparation of the car.

speed-vegas“Our times were that if the leaders. Had we not had that early malfunction, I believe that we would’ve been up front with the leaders battling for the win. I’d like to thank Wauters, Toyota, SpeedVegas and Alert ID. Without everybody’s hard work and help, none of this would’ve been possible.”

He and the Wauters team head to the Indiana track looking to capture the win this weekend.

“This will be my first trip to Winchester Speedway.  I’ve heard that the track is really banked and very bumpy. 400 laps is a long race but these guys on the Wauters team have put together a really good Speed Vegas Toyota Camry for the race.  We are absolutely going there to bring home the win.  It would sure be awesome to win that Winchester rifle but I don’t know if TSA Security will let me bring it on the plane!  I’ve been assured the guys will make sure it gets back safely on the transporter.  I’m looking forward to this weekend.  There is a lot of stiff competition but we are going to work hard to bring home a solid finish or a win in the Speed Vegas Camry.”

Richie Wauters:

“Noah (Gragson) is a real wheelman and we are really excited about this weekend.  Noah has had a lot of success this season in both (NASCAR) K&N Series divisions and we are hoping to have him continue that this weekend at Winchester (Speedway).  It is a long race but Noah has the stamina and the ability to learn the track quickly and so I believe we will have a great weekend in Indiana. I have to thank Speed Vegas for coming onboard as the sponsor and we are all going to work hard to bring home a top finish or a win for them this weekend.”
