Fort Worth, TX. (May 28, 2011) — Through a partnership with Linkous Enterprises, Inc. (LEI), Best Western Timber Creek Inn & Suites and Convention Center will host Rick Ware Racing for the upcoming NASCAR Nationwide Series event at Chicagoland Speedway. The Best Western Timber Creek Inn & Suites logo will be prominently displayed on both RWR entries, the No. 15 Chevrolet driven by Timmy Hill and the No. 75 Chevrolet driven by Carl Long in the STP 300, the first-ever stand-alone Nationwide Series event at the Chicagoland Speedway.
“We are very appreciative of the support that the Timber Creek Inn & Suites has extended to Linkous Enterprises and our race team,” said team owner Rick Ware. “As owner of the ‘Biggest Little Team in Motorsports’ we realized long ago that our sport and our team thrives with the support of companies such as Timber Creek Inn & Suites and we look forward to having their guests join us for the race and putting on a good show for them. We’re already excited about heading into the Chicagoland area; we know we’re going to have a great place to stay and it’s easy to get back and forth to the track. Hopefully we’ll have some great race fans staying there with us and we can all enjoy the first ever stand-alone Nationwide Series race at Chicagoland Speedway together.”
Rick Ware Racing competes in both the NASCAR Nationwide Series and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and has also participated in the Grand American Road Racing Series Rolex 24 at Daytona. Not only is Ware the team owner, but he is also a former driver, having made numerous starts in all three of NASCAR’s national touring series. He finally hung up his helmet in 2003 to focus on building a competitive multi-faceted race team.
“We’re excited at our first opportunity to work with LEI and their NASCAR race team clients, and we’re very pleased it’s with Rick Ware Racing,” said Cindy Prohl, the director of sales for the Best Western Timber Creek Inn & Suites. “Rick’s team has started from the ground up and in less than two years has really blossomed into a team that can compete for top ten finishes. We watched our hotel being built from the ground up less than two years ago too, and we’re proud to be one of the destinations for race teams and race fans alike whenever they come to the Chicagoland Speedway.”
The STP 300 for the NASCAR Nationwide Series at Chicagoland Speedway is scheduled for Saturday, June 4 with the green flag expected shortly after 8 P.M. Eastern. The race will be televised live on ESPN and can be heard on select affiliates of the MRN Radio network nationwide and on Sirius XM Radio Channel 90.
