Win-Tron Racing puts band back together for ARCA season finale at Kansas Speedway

MOORESVILLE, N.C.: NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series rookie Gus Dean (@gusdean) will bookend the ARCA Menards Series season for Win-Tron Racing by competing in Friday night’s ARCA Kansas 150 at Kansas Speedway.

Dean, the Bluffton, S.C. native will make his fourth ARCA start of the year and seek his third ARCA victory in the 20th ARCA Menards Series race the season. Earlier this year, he made starts at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway and Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway respectively.

Before his graduation to the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, Dean spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons driving the No. 32 entry for Kevin Cywinski’s Mooresville, N.C.-based team where the duo became a weekly threat in ARCA competition with Dean returning Win-Tron Racing to Victory Lane at Elko (Minn.) Speedway last summer.

“I’m really looking forward to this opportunity to run the ARCA race with Win-Tron Racing,” said Dean. “Kevin (Cywinski) and my crew chief Jamie (Jones) have been an instrumental part of my racing career as I’ve progressed and anytime we get the chance to compete in a race together – we have one goal in mind, winning.”

Kansas Speedway is the home of Dean’s Win-Tron Racing debut during the 2016 season and eyes his third ARCA Menards Series victory overall in the season finale.

“Kansas Speedway is such a fast race track, but I enjoy racing there,” added Dean. “We had a super competitive car last October but unfortunately didn’t get the finish we deserved.

“We’re bringing the same car we raced at Charlotte in May and it was fast. I think we have a good opportunity to put ourselves in a position to win the race on Friday night and end the ARCA year on a high note.”

In his most recent ARCA race, Dean finished third – his career-best at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway in two starts. In all, it was the 25-year-old’s second top-10 finish of the year on the heels of a sixth-place result at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in April.

“We started off the year by contending for the win at Daytona, had good presence at Talladega and we’re back again fighting for the win at Charlotte. Everyone is excited to put the band back together one more time in 2019 and we all look forward to making the best of it.”

Win-Tron Racing partner IceBox Helmet Coolers re-joins the organization to share the spotlight in the team’s 11th race of the year.

The IceBox by AirBox represents an innovative Air-Cooling Solution for personal and confined environment where space, weight and power consumption are critical considerations. Design applications include Aviation, Aerospace and Performance Racing industries.

IceBox incorporates advanced semiconductor component and application technology to create a thermoelectric heat pump that requires no moving parts and a minimal amount of electrical current to effect cooling.

Dean will carry additional support from Baker Distributing Company, CAB Installers and LG Air Conditioning Technologies in his 51st career start. “Without them, I wouldn’t have this chance, and I want to thank them personally with a celebration in Victory Lane. That would be perfect.”

Win-Tron Racing car owner Kevin Cywinski says the team is optimistic about their chances for Friday night’s race – but believes his driver will step up to the plate and deliver a good showing.

“We always look forward to having Gus (Dean) behind the wheel,” sounded Cywinski. “Gus is a talented race car driver and he has shown that time and time again in our Win-Tron Racing ARCA cars. We almost got ourselves a win at Charlotte, so we’re approaching Kansas with some unfinished business.

“I’m confident Jamie (Jones) and Gus will show their potential in practice and hopefully we can put this Win-Tron Racing team back in the winner’s circle in the final race of the season.”

Howie DiSavino III Readies For Second Career ARCA Start at Lucas Oil Raceway

MOORESVILLE, NC (Sept. 25, 2019) — After an eye-opening and thrilling outing at Elko Speedway in July, Howie DiSavino III is climbing back behind the wheel of a Win-Tron Racing Chevrolet this weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. The start will be his second in the ARCA Menards Series, both of which will come on a pair of the most difficult short tracks the tour visits.

In July, DiSavino made the jump from late model stock cars to the higher-horsepower, slightly heavier ARCA machines under the guidance of car owner Kevin Cywinski and crew chief Jamie Jones. Elko Speedway was the site of his first national-level start, where he completed each of the 250 laps and captured a top ten finish, a strong accomplishment for any rookie making the jump to a national level series.

“We are really excited to have Howie back in the No. 32 Chevy at LOR,” said car owner Cywinski. “In his ARCA debut at Elko, earlier this year, he brought home an impressive top 10 finish. That was something we were all proud of for him. He has been working hard, getting as much seat time as he can since that race. I expect this to be a very successful event for Howie and the whole Win-Tron Racing team. We have raised our goals and have every expectation of achieving them with him.”

Some of the additional seat time DiSavino has been acquiring came at the unique .686-mile layout at LOR just two weeks ago. Racing a pro late model for Willie Allen Racing, DiSavino started the 100-lap event in third and raced amongst the top five until mechanical issues hampered the effort of the Mass Mutual of Richmond team. Despite the issues, he still recorded a 12th place finish.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing how the ARCA car goes around the track at LOR because it’s so much heavier and has more horsepower than the pro late model does,” DiSavino said in regards to the upcoming race. “We ran good and were up front all race, and I feel like we should have a good race there in the ARCA car. The biggest challenge will be to save tires and to avoid the wall because the groove is up high next to the wall. I’ve never raced anywhere like this, but I’m really looking forward to getting another opportunity to race there with Win-Tron.”

The ARCA race will expose second-time starter DiSavino not only to more power around the flat layout, but also more laps. Unlike his late model race where 100 laps was the scheduled distance, the ARCA Menards Series event will be contested over 200 circuits, with live pit stops, on national television.

Practice for the Herr’s Potato Chips 200 commences at 2pm ET on Saturday, October 5. Qualifying hits the track at 5pm with the green flag scheduled to fly at 8pm ET. MAVtv will carry the race live on their cable and satellite network while additional coverage can be found on the series website at ARCAracing.com.

COLBY HOWARD LOOKS TO STEP BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT AT SALEM SPEEDWAY IN THE ARCA MENARDS SERIES

CONCORD, NC – This Saturday, Simpsonville, South Carolina’s Colby Howard will make his return to the ARCA Menards Series at Salem Speedway. In just three career ARCA starts, Howard has earned three Top 10 finishes, with an average finish of 9.0 heading into the weekend.

The high banked Indiana short track was the site of Howard’s ARCA Menards Series debut in 2018, where he started and finished in eighth. This time around, the 18-year-old plans on bettering his results with Win-Tron Racing in the No. 32 Project Hope/Yurpal, Inc. Chevrolet.

Howard was quoted saying, “I am really looking forward to returning to Salem. We had a good run in the test on Tuesday, and should have had a Top 5 finish in last year’s race until I made a mistake on pit road. This time around, it should be better, because our car is really solid on old tires, which is critical on Salem’s worn out surface.”

Earlier this season, Colby Howard debuted for team owner Kevin Cywinski and crew chief Jamie Jones at Iowa Speedway. The No. 32 team finished tenth at Iowa, and plan on bringing the same racecar to Salem.

Colby is yet another talented young prospect represented by PMG to make his way up the stock car racing ladder. He cites PMG’s guidance as being a key factor to his successful career.

The ARCA Menards Series heads to Salem Speedway on Saturday, September 14th, for the running of the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic 200. Fans can tune into MAVTV at 7:00 PM Eastern Time to see live coverage of the race, or follow along on www.ARCAracing.com for live updates.

Austin Wayne Self returns to ARCA Menards Series at Chicagoland Speedway

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – In a collaborative effort between AM Racing and Win-Tron Racing, the two organizations announced today the return of NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) to the ARCA Menards Series (AMS) for Thursday night’s Bounty 150 at Chicagoland Speedway.

Self, 23, will drive the team’s No. 32 Chevrolet with support from Win-Tron Performance and IceBox Helmet Coolers.

“I’m excited about getting back and racing in the ARCA Menards Series,” said Self the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year.

“Win-Tron Racing has had some very competitive finishes this year and I know they are going to bring me a fast race car and I look forward to the opportunity to pull double duty this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.”

Self, a native of Austin, Texas last competed in ARCA nearly two years at Road America (Wisc.) where in a second entry for Win-Tron Racing he finished sixth after starting 12th in 2017.

In all, Self in five years of competition in ARCA has 47 career starts with one win, 13 top-five and 31 top-10 finishes. In two starts at Chicagoland, he finished a track-best 12th after starting fourth in 2015.

Win-Tron Racing has run a select schedule in the ARCA Series in 2019 with drivers Gus Dean and AM Racing development driver Cole Glasson.

Self who will compete in Friday night’s Camping World 225 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race at Chicagoland is hopeful to run more ARCA races this season.

“We’re still looking at the schedule, but I think you’ll see me in or a race or two more after Chicagoland,” added Self. “I know that Kevin (Cywinski, Win-Tron Racing owner) and Jamie (Jones, crew chief) have put together a very competitive car and I look forward to our chance to go out there and contend for my second career ARCA win.”

Cywinski who serves as team manager of Self’s Gander Truck Series team says having Self compete in both races at Chicagoland will undoubtedly prove to be beneficial.

“Austin will do us a great job at Chicagoland,” sounded Cywinski. “The extra seat time will allow Austin to stay focused and bring back some positive feedback to not only the ARCA program but also acquire critical track time that should prove to be beneficial for the Truck Series program this weekend too.”

Gus Dean eyes ARCA win at Charlotte Motor Speedway

CONCORD, N.C. – On the heels of a solid top-10 finish in his most recent ARCA Menards Series race at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) rookie Gus Dean will take advantage of an off weekend and compete in his third ARCA start of the season in Thursday night’s General Tire 150 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.

Dean will eye his third career ARCA victory in the 100-lap and believes the speed his Win-Tron Racing team showed at the series’ open test at the 1.5-mile speedway has them in a good position to be a contender in the seventh race of 2019.

“I’m so appreciative for this opportunity to run the ARCA race at Charlotte,” said Dean. “It wasn’t on my schedule, but things fell into place to make it happen and I’m extremely thankful. Jamie (Jones, crew chief) wants to go there and win and so do I. I believe we’ll have the car to do it on Thursday night.”

Dean, a native of Bluffton, S.C. made a splash in his Charlotte ARCA debut last May qualifying on the outside pole and contended for a strong finish before engine problems set in late in the race with Dean soldiering to a 14th place effort.

“Charlotte is a very fast place,” added Dean. “I like the track. It’s pretty cool. It’s important to make sure you get the car rotating through the corners and through the bumps. It’s a place where you need to carry the speed off the corner too.

“Even though our track time was limited during the test, I still feel like we are in a good place coming back for the race and look forward to Thursday night.”

Longtime Dean supporter CAB Installers will serve as the co-primary marketing partner for the May   23rd race, while Win-Tron Racing partner IceBox Helmet Coolers joins the organization to share the spotlight in the team’s third race of the year.

The IceBox by AirBox represents an innovative Air-Cooling Solution for personal and confined environment where space, weight and power consumption are critical considerations. Design applications include Aviation, Aerospace and Performance Racing industries.

IceBox incorporates advanced semiconductor component and application technology to create a thermoelectric heat pump that requires no moving parts and a minimal amount of electrical current to effect cooling.

“I can’t thank CAB Installers and IceBox by AirBox for making Charlotte possible,” added Dean. “Without them, I would haven’t this chance and I want to thank them personally with a celebration in Victory Lane. That would be perfect.”

Win-Tron Racing car owner Kevin Cywinski says the team is optimistic about their chances for Thursday night’s race – but believes his driver will step up to the plate and deliver a good showing.

“We should be pretty good,” said Cywinski. “Gus knows how to wheel his way around Charlotte and hopefully that will play into our hands. We had a setback that kept us off the track for most of the test a couple weeks ago, but I’m confident Jamie (Jones) and Gus will show their potential in practice and hopefully we can put this Win-Tron Racing team back in the winner’s circle.”
