Talladega does not favor this Earnhardt

Jeffrey Earnhardt has watched his family have their way with Talladega Superspeedway for decades. The youngest family member climbed into his #1 Poynt Chevy Silverado with the intentions of carrying on that tradition, this time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Earnhardt qualified in the 28th position and showed just how quick his truck was in the draft by moving into the 13th position on lap number two.

As the racing became dicey early, Earnhardt decided to drop near the rear but that became costly as he was caught up in an 8 truck wreck on lap 13.

"I dropped to the bottom to miss the wreck but got tagged in the right rear as I hit the apron and it ended our day," stated Earnhardt.

"The truck was great and we were trying to buy sometime til the end of the race but when trucks start wrecking at 190mph, there is just no where to go."

Earnhardt finished 34th on the day.

Jeffrey will now put his focus on the 2012 Grand AM Series preparations. "I was hoping to put a great finish on the 2011 season before focusing on next year. We had everything we needed but luck. I can't thank Poynt and the RWR team for everything they did for the weekend."

Earnhardt returns to #1 truck at Talladega with Poynt

Calgary, Canada & Chicago, USA—September 29, 2011—Poynt Corporation (TSX-V: PYN) (“Poynt Corp.” or the “Company”), a global leader in mobile local search and advertising, and Rick Ware Racing (“RWR”) today announced the Company’s flagship application, Poynt (“Poynt” or the “App”) will be the official sponsor of Jeffrey Earnhardt for the Talladega Superspeedway Camping World Truck Series entry in October.

Earnhardt will be driving the Poynt branded NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Chevy in the October 22, 2011 Camping World Truck Series event at the Talladega Superspeedway, AL in the Coca-Cola 250 presented by Fred’s Super Dollar. The race will be broadcast at 3:30pm ET on SPEED in the United States and on Speed Network in Canada.

“The Earnhardt name is synonymous with NASCAR,” said Margaret Glover-Campbell, SVP Marketing and Public Relations. “This is a fantastic opportunity to expand Poynt’s sponsorship within the RWR family, especially given the Earnhardt name has become a brand of its own. We are eager to see RWR and Poynt further grow together as Talladega approaches.”

“We are very excited to have Poynt on the truck with Jeffrey Earnhardt at Talladega,” stated owner Rick Ware. “Their organization strives on being #1 and it is only fitting to have Jeffrey pilot the #1 truck at a track that both Jeffrey and the fans love so much.”

Added Ware, “Poynt has been a lifesaver to our team when we’ve put in a long day on the road between cities and need to find nearby gas, a place to eat or a hotel for the night.”

Next Generation Earnhardt Swaps His Ride and Joins Ford Camp for 2012 Rolex Grand AM Championship Run

September 8, 2011 (Thomasville, NC)

Jeffrey Earnhardt made the announcement during his weekly radio appearance with SiriusXm’s Claire B. Lang last week that he will be competing for the 2012 Rolex Grand Am Series Championship in the GT Class with Rick Ware Racing.

The 4th generation Earnhardt driver surprised everyone with his latest news. “I am officially Swapping my Ride!” he proclaimed and will trade in his bowtie allegiance that has been synonymous with the Earnhardt name for decades and head to the Ford camp.

Jeffrey Earnhardt will pilot the #15 Ford GT Mustang, a move that will reflect his grandfather, Dale Earnhardt Sr.’s, move with Bud Moore in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series in 1982, exactly 30 years ago.

“This is a great opportunity for me, Rick Ware Racing and the Ford organization,” Jeffrey Earnhardt stated.

“Roush-Yates & Roush-Fenway are top notch organizations so when Rick told me that RWR was going with their technology, it became clear that this was the right decision. Rick’s team is going full bore to make sure we can compete for a championship in the Rolex Series and you can bet that Roush Yates powered Ford GT Mustang is going to be driven as hard as I can press it. Mustangs are the classic renegade muscle cars so I guess this Earnhardt in a Ford is a good match.”

Earnhardts counting down the days until the team begins testing later this month.

“The car looks awesome. Each time I head to the shop the guys progress on the car is incredible. I can’t wait to get it out on the track.”

Rick Ware Racing has expanded their operations last month to an additional 24,000 square feet specifically for the Grand Am program. RWR will now occupy both their current building and the previously owned Petty Motorsports building that housed the late Adam Petty’s racing program. Both buildings are directly across the street from each other.

“These are great times at RWR and the growth of our organization was inevitable. The newest facility will host the Rick Ware Racing NASCAR Grand-Am Series Ford Mustang program,” stated Rick Ware.

Ware’s entrance into the Grand Am Rolex program will be fielding two full time entries in 2012. Their NASCAR Nationwide Series fleet of 11 Ford Mustangs driven by the NASCAR Nationwide Series Sunoco Rookie of the Year point leader, Timmy Hill, will remain at their current facility to help grow that program to new heights.

“It wasn’t that long ago that there were several NASCAR teams here in Thomasville. We want to show that growth with an organization can still happen right here in the Piedmont area of North Carolina. We have everything we need between the two facilities to showcase our program in both NASCAR and Grand Am.”

“It’s a fresh and exciting time here with Jeffrey and the Grand Am program as well as what Timmy has been doing in the Nationwide Series. Collectively we have grown into a team that can market year round with solid performances that reach millions, something that every company in motorsports marketing desires,” stated Ware.

RWR will field the #14 and #15 Ford Mustang GT’s for the season with the #16 third car competing by the third race of the season on. Additional sponsors and drivers will be announced soon. In addition, RWR will also compete with this years 11th place finishing Tafel Porsche GT3 at the 24 Hours as well.

RWR now houses a fleet of Nationwide, Camping World Truck, K&N, ARCA, Legends, Allison Legacy, Bandelaros, Grand Am Series, Sprint Cup and HSR cars in their 45,000 square foot, 11 acre facility, complete with 9 offices , two paint booths, bondo booth, engine room, storefront and a showroom.

Earnhardt to run for title in Grand Am Series in 2012

The Earnhardt family has accomplished nearly every goal set in racing. Jeffrey Earnhardt will now set his goal on a family first……winning the championship in the NASCAR owned Grand Am Series.

Jeffrey Earnhardt has signed a deal to place him in a full season of Grand Am Racing in 2012 in the Rolex GT Class with Rick Ware Racing.

Earnhardt made his series debut at the 2011 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona with RWR in a GT3 Porsche and finished 11th in class and 25th overall, a huge accomplishment for the organizations entrance in the grueling around the clock event.

“I have never experienced any type of racing like that before. It was definitely a rush and look forward to competing in the 50th Anniversary of the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona in 2012 with RWR again,” stated Jeffrey Earnhardt.

Earnhardt will be displaying the number 15 for the 2012 season, a number his grandfather, Dale Earnhardt, competed with 30 years ago in the NASCAR Winston Cup Series.

“The 15 number is a pretty cool deal. I have seen pictures of the car he drove with it before he jumped into the 3. To start my Grand Am career with it will hold a special place to our family and fans.”

Jeffrey Earnhardt will also make his Indianapolis Motor Speedway debut as the Grand Am Series heads to the “Brickyard” for the inaugural event during the NASCAR Sprint Cup weekend.

“To compete at the Brickyard is a dream for any racer in any series. The history is rich and the atmosphere is electric. To be a part of the inaugural event makes it that much sweeter,” claimed Earnhardt.

The North Carolina native will be making the jump from NASCAR to the Grand Am Series to compete full time, something rarely done.

“I have always done well on road courses, so this seems like the natural progression for my career. Besides that, Grand Am has a great marketing avenue to sponsors that reaches globally and yet is more interactive with fans with their hauler-garage setups, something we are looking forward to exploring with our program.”

Earnhardt and Rick Ware Racing will be making announcements for the car manufacturer, sponsors and co-drivers in the upcoming weeks.

Earnhardt collects career high in Nationwide at Daytona

Jeffrey Earnhardt made his second NASCAR Nationwide Series start of 2011 at Daytona International Speedway this weekend and showed everyone he is a contender each time he hits the historic track.

Earnhardt finished 11th in the his Grand-Am Series debut in January and backed that up with a 7th in his debut in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event in February.

Jeffrey qualified in the 27th position and paired up quickly with his RWR teammate, Timmy Hill. The two rookies practiced the two car draft up until just a handful of laps remained when it became a free for all.

"We had worked with Timmy all race and when the green dropped with seven to go we started moving to the front when we got separated. I got shuffled back pretty good with three to go until we got hooked up with Bliss (#19)."

Bliss tagged the bumper of the #41 Fastwax Chevy and the two ran down the pack from the 31st position to the Top 20 in just two laps.

"That 19 was awesome and pushed me like I have never been pushed. We ducked in and out of other two car groups like they were sitting still and crossed in 17th under caution. It was a great finish for the Fastwax car and I am looking forward to getting behind the wheel again."

After further review, NASCAR placed Earnhardt in the 19th position, still a career high in the Nationwide Series.
