Trevor Noles: “I’m beyond excited for the opportunity to race with the Wauters Motorsports team at the high banks of Bristol Motor Speedway.  I’ve only had a few super (late model) races in 2017 as I have been concentrating on college graduation.  With that accomplished I can’t wait to get back to racing.  We tested at Bristol last weekend.  It was my first time at Bristol, as well as, the first time teaming up with Richie (Wauters).  Wow, is all I can say!  The track was wicked fast, the race car was even faster and we finished up with some great lap times.  We will definitely be a contender for the win.  I have to personally thank the crew, family, friends and the many sponsors who have made this possible.”

Noles just received his Degree in Construction Technology management from Pitt Community College.  His charity sponsor, Military Missions in Actions, which he has supported the last several years, will also be on board this weekend.
