TheThe Roxton Pond racer will defend the colors of Rick Ware Racing, an American team based in North Carolina that wants to establish itself in Canada. The owner of the “biggest small team in motorsports” as he calls himself, Rick Weir himself raced in NASCAR in the United States.
Rick Ware Racing owns the NASCAR Cup, Xfinity Series, and IndyCar cars.
“I’m relieved and very happy!” said Ranger. Last year was tough and here, finally, the news is good.”
The Ranger, as we know, lost its main sponsor, Mopar, in March 2020. However, Mopar will continue to partner with champion Benti series in 2019 by supplying the engine to the No. Dodge Challenger. 51 that the latter will lead.
“When Rick Ware found out I had no wheel for the next season, he called me. He wanted to expand into Canada and I needed a car. In short, we were made to live!”
And the driver and his new team don’t want to waste time. The proof is that the Ranger will only test today at Sunset Speedway in Innisville, Ontario. At the Innisfil Oval, the Canadian NASCAR Series season kicks off on August 1.
“It’s a new adventure, a new challenge,” Ranger added, clearly thrilled with the turn of events.
Even if Rick Ware Racing allows him to race full-time in the Pinty Series this season, the Ranger still relies on his personal sponsors: XPN, Transport Saint-Michel, VR Soulières, Transport Saint-Pierre, Canadian Super Sellers, BGT, Duclos Chrysler and Consilium Assurances / Consulting Group.

But now, it’s not because his Canadian NASCAR Series presence is certain that Andrew Ranger will turn his back on the RS1 Series, which will allow him to race in the West Country this summer.
“After the auditions at Innisfil, I will be leaving for British Columbia, where I will spend the whole month of July,” he said.
Epidemiological forces, the RS1 series had to reshape its schedule. Ultimately, the series will see four racing weekends, all in British Columbia, two in July, one in August and the last in September. There is no conflict with the Pinty series schedule.
We recently learned that Alex Tagliani will also be racing in this stock car series which will be in its fourth season.
