East Carolina Backs Weatherman & Ware At Bristol

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Rick Ware Racing announced Friday that East Carolina University will be the primary sponsor for Kyle Weatherman’s No. 17 Chevrolet Camaro in Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.

The partnership was made possible by Rick Ware Racing General Manager Bryan Clodfelter, a 1991 graduate of East Carolina University and the Athletics Department at ECU.

Located in Greenville, N.C., East Carolina University is the fourth largest university in North Carolina. Founded on March 8, 1907, as a teaching training school, ECU has grown from 43 acres to almost 1,600 acres.

The university’s academic facilities are located on six properties. There are more than 400 registered clubs on campus including fraternities and sororities.

ECU is a returning partner at Rick Ware Racing after also supporting the team’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series No. 51 entry last year at Dover (Del.) Int’l Speedway.

“Everyone at Rick Ware Racing is extremely excited to once again partner with East Carolina University,” said Clodfelter. “It is a great program that will again put ECU on a national stage without the University incurring any cost.

“The support for us to do this comes from fans and supporters of ECU Athletics and the sales of memorabilia such as hats, shirts and even die-cast cars. Having worked with the Athletic Department during my tenure at ECU, I know first-hand the pride that goes along with athletics at ECU and the commitment of the fan base.”

Twenty-one-year-old Weatherman will make his Xfinity Series debut this weekend at Bristol. Despite his inexperience in Xfinity Series competition, the Wentzville, Mo., native has nine Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts and 50 starts in ARCA, including a win at New Jersey Motorsports Park in 2015.

“I am extremely excited to be able to represent the students and alumni of East Carolina University this weekend at Bristol,” said Weatherman. “I’m looking forward to the challenges a tough short track like Bristol Motor Speedway presents – but I have the confidence in my Rick Ware Racing team that we can have a solid performance on Saturday and give ECU a strong showing as well.

“The car looks great too.”

In addition to Bristol, ECU is expected to be the team’s primary supporter next weekend at Richmond (Va.) Raceway.
