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.”

Cole Glasson To Make ARCA Racing Series Debut For Win-Tron Racing At Kansas

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MOORESVILLE, N.C. – (Aug. 14, 2018) – Eighteen-year-old Cole Glasson will make his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut driving for Win-Tron Racing during the ARCA season finale at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 19.

Glasson took part in the ARCA Racing Series test at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Ill., in June, turning a handful of laps in the No. 32 GREE Cooling Products Chevrolet driven by Win-Tron Racing’s full-time driver and Elko Speedway winner Gus Dean.

Following the successful test, Glasson continued to work with Win-Tron Racing to secure an opportunity to make his ARCA debut. That dream will become a reality on Oct. 19 at Kansas Speedway.

Glasson’s No. 33 Win-Tron Racing Chevrolet will carry primary sponsorship from AM Technical Solutions, a construction management, project management and facility solutions firm for the high tech markets. Founded in 1994, AM Technical Solutions has more than a 20 year track record of delivering high complexity construction projects for many of the leading technology companies with proven success.

“We were very impressed with Cole during the Gateway ARCA test,” said Win-Tron Racing owner Kevin Cywinski. “He showed a willingness to listen to everything we were telling him and he was very focused on learning as much as he could during his time in the race car as well as his time out of the race car. We’re excited to have Cole with us for the race in Kansas and we look forward to seeing what he can do.”

Glasson has been racing since the age of 5. He started in kid karts and has steadily moved up the ranks, competing in karting events at the regional and national level, winning more than 100 races before transitioning to full-bodied stock cars in 2013.

In 2016 Glasson began racing in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series late model stock car division at tracks across the Southeast. In 2017 he joined Lee Faulk Racing and Development, a premier late model development team based in Denver, N.C.

This year Glasson has raced predominately at tracks in the Southeast, including Hickory Motor Speedway, Greenville Pickens Speedway and Anderson Motor Speedway. He most recently competed in the CARS Response Energy Tour Throwback 276, finishing 11th in an all-star field. In the last two years he’s earned 18 top-five and 26 top-10 finishes in a late model.

“I’ve worked so hard for an opportunity like this, so I can’t thank Kevin and Traci Cywinski enough for believing in me and giving me this opportunity. I’m beyond excited,” Glasson said. “I have to say thank you to God, MPM Marketing and AM Technical Solutions for making this opportunity possible. Obviously I have to thank my parents as well as Lee and Michael Faulk for everything they’ve taught me the last two years.”

Glasson’s goal going into the ARCA finale will be to learn as much as possible during his first ARCA Racing Series start.

“I would say there are no expectations for me going into the race,” Glasson said. “If I keep doing what I’ve been doing this year, which is listen, learn and stay relaxed, then I will surpass any expecation that I could set. This is going to be a lot of fun and I can’t wait to get to Kansas.”

The ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards Kansas ARCA 150 will be held Oct. 19 at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., and will air live on FOX Sports 2 at 8:30 p.m. EST.

AM Technical Solutions will be Cole Glasson’s sponsor when he makes his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 18.
