Rick Ware Racing
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Rick Ware Racing will field three full-time teams this season, so it looks like Ware could increase his involvement in NASCAR's top division. While he's yet to be named to one of the three rides, he could race roughly half the schedule in one of them. Last year's 13 starts netted just one Top-30 finish for this young driver. However, Ware got valuable seat time for his extended growth as a driver. The 24-year-old has a lot of room to grow and it looks like he could be upping his involvement at the Cup level this season. Ware will also do some racing in IMSA for Rick Ware's new venture into sports car racing. 2020 is shaping up to be a very busy season for this young driver, but he still has a lot to learn before he can improve.

Losing Sponsors because of Shutdown
NASCAR Cup
April 7, 2020
Rick Ware Racing Owner Rick Ware said the shutdown of racing due to the coronavirus pandemic has "dramatically complicated things" from a financial standpoint, as his NASCAR Cup Series teams probably will "lose $600,000-800,000 in sponsorship", Sports Business Daily reports.
ANALYSIS
The shutdown of professional sports is hitting many teams hard, but especially in NASCAR due to the reliance on corporate sponsorship. RWR is facing a loss of close to $800,000 due to the shutdown. The team had adequate sponsors before the Coronavirus ceased all NASCAR racing, but will face an uncertain future and funding shortfalls when racing resumes.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Rick Ware Racing is gearing up for the 2019 season, and that means Ware will get full-time action in one of the team's two rides. It will likely be RWR's No. 52 Chevrolet that will be his seat. The 23-year-old driver made just four starts last season split between the team's two cars. It was a multi-driver lineup approach that saw several pilots in the team's Chevrolets. Ware registered two DNF's and 28th- and 38th-place finishes at Phoenix and Talladega. His racing activities have been ramping up over the past three seasons, but this will be his first full-time attempt in NASCAR's top division. For quickly growing, small race teams there is always a tremendous learning curve. We expect Ware and this race team to experience those growing pains in 2019.
