The old saying goes “good things come to those who wait”, and that is exactly how Kevin Nouse is feeling as he has been chosen to be the driver of the R&R Motorsports #4R 358 Sprint Car for the 2013 racing season. “I began talking to the R&R team in December about possibly driving their car, and I’m very happy that the wait is finally over” said Nouse. “They had a bunch of good drivers that called them about the ride and I’m sure the final decision wasn’t an easy one for them to make. With rides so hard to come by, I feel very fortunate that they chose me as their driver”.
For Nouse, it’s a return to a familiar car and situation. He drove for the R&R team in 2006 and 2008 and won races at Williams Grove Speedway, Port Royal Speedway and Lincoln Speedway during that time. He also contended for the 358 Point Championship at Williams Grove in 2006 before leaving the team for another opportunity. Nouse believes this past experience, coupled with the opportunity to work with mechanic Tracy Barrick again, will make them a strong team in 2013. “Tracy was there when I drove the car in 2006 and we had a lot of success together. In 2008, he was working with another team and the #4R team wasn’t the same without him. He is very good at what he does and we work well together.” Nouse added, “There’s a level of trust when you have a guy like that in your pit area and that makes it easier for me to get the job done out on the track. I see no reason why we won’t be a weekly contender for wins and a serious championship contender with Tracy and I working together again.”
Although the R&R team is still putting together their 2013 schedule, Nouse stated that they are looking at running approximately 25 races, with their main efforts being focused on winning the Williams Grove Speedway 358 title. He also said that they will not be running at any Saturday night tracks on a weekly basis, and will probably just compete in special shows at various tracks instead.
Confirmed sponsors on the #4R car at this time are Robert Yocum Financial Planner, Nouse Signs & Graphics, Highlands Powersports, Ultra-Shield Racing Products, K1 Race Gear and Factory Kahne Shocks. The team will use Maxim Chassis and is currently in negotiations with additional sponsors with hopes of announcing them in the near future.
