Korbin Forrister Joins Wauters Motorsports at 5 Flags Speedway for the Deep South Cranes Blizzard #4

Pensacola, FL (September 23, 2016) Korbin Forrister will pilot the No. 5 Wauters Motorsports Super Late Model in the Deep South Cranes Blizzard #4 Southern Super Series (SSS) race at 5 Flags Speedway Saturday, September 24, 2016.

korbinForrister made his first start with the Wauters Motorsports team at Myrtle Beach Speedway.

Korbin Forrister:

“I learned a lot last weekend with the late models. We by far had a top car all weekend and it showed during practice, I just didn’t do my part.  I learned that I can be way more aggressive during qualifying with those things; you can really hustle the car and get after it getting in and out of the corners.  My plan is to go to Pensacola and start off just like we did at Myrtle Beach (Speedway), have a great practice session but this time carry that to qualifying and then to the race.  Last weekend was a lot to put together in one weekend but I strongly believe we have one of the best cars going to the race again this weekend. I just have to listen and put it all together and we will go out there and run good all weekend.”

The Deep South Cranes 150 Blizzard/SSS Championship at 5 Flags Speedway is slated for Saturday, September 24th at 7:30pm.  Coverage of the event can be found on Speed51.com.

Richie Wauters Serves as Interim Crew Chief for Hattori Racing Enterprises and Ryan Truex

Charlotte, NC (May 19, 2016)-Veteran team owner and crew chief, Richie Wauters is serving as the interim crew chief for the No. 81 Hattori Racing Enterprises (HRE) Toyota Tundra driven by Ryan Truex.

KWB_Loudon-Practice-10004Wauters who has his own super late model and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) team took a hiatus from his shop to help the small HRE team.  Since Wauters teamed up with HRE at Kansas Speedway, Truex has had sixth place finish and a eighth place finish at Dover last weekend.

Wauters will again be on the box for the running of the NC Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway Friday, May 20th.

Richie Wauters: “Right now we have some things in the works for some truck (NCWTS) starts this season but until that materializes I wanted to help out the Hattori team (HRE).  I know what it is like to be a small, underfunded, underdog team so I’ve been able to help them during the week at the shop and then at the track.  They have a strong truck chief (JR Norris) who used to race for me who knows how to get the truck setup and ready to get to the track.  I think Ryan (Truex) has done a great job these last few weeks and I’m looking forward to seeing if we can get a win this weekend at Charlotte (CMS).”

The NC Education Lottery 200 NCWTS race is slated for Friday, May 20 at 8:30pm.  Fox Sports 1 will provide televised coverage and MRN Radio and Sirius NASCAR Channel 90 will broadcast the live action from Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Bear Boasts 10th at 5 Flags Speedway in Southern Super Series Race with Wauters Motorsports

Pensacola, FL (April 30, 2016)-Quinnton Bear in his second start at 5 Flags Speedway posted a 10th place finish in the Deep South Crane Blizzard Series #1 Southern Super Series (SSS) race Friday night.

IMG_3165Bear piloting the No. 5 Sparco Wauters Motorsports Super Late Model (SLM) Toyota Camry was fastest in final practice, qualified seventh and with the invert started the 125 lap race on the outside front row.

Bear dropped back in the top-10 to preserve his Sparco Camry but midway through the race the car became free, not allowing the Avon, IN driver to get back up to the top-five.

Quinnton Bear:

“The Sparco Camry was really good early on (in the race).  I dropped back to save my stuff and was just cruising.  During the long run the car started to get free around lap 60.  After that, I could never find a rhythm and put together consistent laps.  I feel like I learned a lot and will be better when we come back, for sure.  I have to give a huge thank you to everyone at Wauters (Motorsports) for giving me a good piece.  Driver just wasn’t 100%, but we will be back for the next Blizzard race and will be a lot better.”

Bear Ready to Sizzle in Southern Super Series Race at 5 Flags Speedway with Wauters Motorsports

IMG_1225Pensacola, FL (April 28, 2016)- Quinnton Bear will take to 5 Flags Speedway in the No. 5 Sparco Wauters Motorsports Toyota Camry Super Late Model (SLM) in the Deep South Crane Blizzard Series #1 Southern Super Series (SSS) race Friday night.
This will be Bear’s second start at the half-mile Pensacola, Florida racetrack, but his first with his Wauters Motorsports team.

Quinnton Bear:

“I’m looking forward to going to a track that I have struggled at in the past.  Being able to learn from Richie (Wauters) experience will definitely benefit me and help me understand the track a lot better.  We plan on running a few of these Blizzard races to get me more seat time in a super late model, as well as, seat time at 5 Flags Speedway.  This is all in preparation for the car and me for the famed Snowball Derby.  I am just so excited to get back behind the wheel again and have the opportunity to do what I love, race.”
