Stewart-Haas Racing’s reserve driver Ryan Preece will compete for Rick Ware Racing in multiple events throughout the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season, the organization announced on Thursday morning.
Preece, who will make his 2022 Cup Series debut in the inaugural Busch Light Clash at The Coliseum on February 6, will compete in the No. 15 Ford Mustang, with a strong technical alliance from Stewart-Haas Racing.
“Ryan is a great addition to the RWR lineup for 2022,” commented team owner, Rick Ware. “His talent on the race track has been shown through his achievements in the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR Xfinity Series. Our alliance with SHR and Ford has allowed us to put a wheelman behind the wheel, starting at the quarter-mile showdown in LA.”
Preece is scheduled to compete in ~12 events between the NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2022, as part of his brand-new role with Stewart-Haas Racing.
“Being a part of the Clash at the LA Memorial Coliseum is special to me because of the opportunity it presents,” said Preece. “A 1/4 mile bullring is the type of racetrack that I have had a lot of success on, and I’m looking forward to the future races ahead as well.“
Sponsorship for Preece’s No. 15 Ford Mustang will be announced at a later date.
