Rick Ware Racing will be heading to Loudon, N.H. in July as the New England racers dream making team. 

On Friday it was announced that longtime Modified and ARCA competitor and New Hampshire native Andy Seuss would make his NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series debut for the team in the July 21 Foxwoods Resort Casino 301 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. 

Saturday Rick Ware Racing announced they’d be fielding another debut New Englander. 

Former ARCA Series champion and Fort Kent, Me. native Austin Theriault will make his Monster Energy Cup Series debut for the team on July 21. 

“We are proud to be giving deserving drivers their chance, and RWR has been fortunate to give some outstanding drivers their chance in the Cup Series over the years,” team owner Rick Ware said in a press release. “We are just as excited to see Austin Theriault showcase his talents on this big stage. We have been following Austin’s career and are thrilled to have him in the Bangor Savings Bank No. 52 at New Hampshire. We are equally excited to have Bangor Savings Bank join the RWR family as a marketing partner. We have been very fortunate to have added some very admirable companies to our family this year and are looking forward to having Bangor Savings Bank join us at NHMS.”

Theriault, the 2017 ARCA Series champion, has made New Hampshire Motor Speedway series starts previously with the NASCAR XFINITY Series, NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and the American-Canadian Tour. 

“I’ve been working extremely hard to get the opportunity to race in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series,” Theriault said. “I remember sitting in the NHMS grandstands and watching my favorite driver, Mark Martin, win the last race of his Cup career in 2009. It never crossed my mind, that I would have the opportunity to make my Cup debut at a track that means so much to my family and I. The support we’ve received from New England is humbling, and I’m excited to say I’ll be debuting with the support of New England based companies.”
