Gus Dean hopes to rekindle Memphis winning ways

Gus Dean hopes to rekindle Memphis winning ways

MEMPHIS, Tenn: When the ARCA Menards Series (AMS) added a race at Memphis (Tenn.) International Raceway to their 2020 schedule, two-time winner Gus Dean (@gusdean) knew he had to be a part of the series’ nearly 20-year return.

Dean will compete in Saturday afternoon’s Sioux Chief PowerPEX 200 and look for a positive finish to conclude his limited ARCA Menards Series schedule this season.

The Bluffton, S.C. native is a former winner at Memphis in 2014 competing in the X-1R Pro Cup Series (now CARS Tour).

Adding strength in numbers, Dean’s crew chief Jamie Jones is also a prior Memphis winner taking home the checkered flag in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGROTS) in 2005 with driver Brandon Whitt.

And with this weekend’s race being the first show for the ARCA Menards Series at Memphis since 2001, the Win-Tron Racing team is hoping to be a serious contender in the 18th ARCA race of the season and help Dean achieve his third career victory.

“I’m stoked about going to Memphis, obviously,” added Dean. “It’s a fun race track and it brings a lot of memories from 2014 – where I beat some of the best of the best in Late Model competition.

“I know Jamie (Jones) is hungry to win there again and I hope we can go out there this weekend and have a good showing and hopefully bring home the checkered flag.”

Memphis though isn’t just about winning for Dean. He’s eyeing the 0.750-mile paved oval as a chance to close out his ARCA season on a high note.

Dean has been a top-10 contender all season. From his first start of the year at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway to his most recent start last Thursday night in the Bush’s Bean 200, but bad luck has bitten the NASCAR driver and left the Statesville, N.C.-based team with less than desirable finishes.

“Whether it was an accident trigged by the pace car, an electrical issue at Talladega or a parts failure with about five laps left at Bristol, luck has not been on our side this season. That changes this weekend at Memphis!

“It’s the perfect place for our luck to change and the right spot to give us some momentum going into the offseason to get ready for 2021.”

But before Dean can shift his attention towards an ARCA and NASCAR schedule next season, he knows he’ll have to conquer Memphis first, a place he remembers quite well.

“You have to be easy on the throttle and make sure you are conserving the tires, those will be the two biggest factors at Memphis this weekend,” sounded Dean. “We have a short practice then qualifying and then the race.

“Obviously, the track will change throughout the race, but it is making sure we’re keeping up with those changes, especially following that final segment that I hope will make us a factor on Saturday night.”

Dean’s No. 32 Chevrolet will continue to be backed by MASHONIT Apparel Co.

MASHONIT Apparel Co. is a brand for those that live life wide open.  The people that look at something normal and think, “That’s not good enough,” “It can go faster” or “Let’s see what this thing can do.”

Those that have the hunger inside that keeps them just south of normal.

That never-ending hunger for speed and adrenaline that allows you to find the thin line between being heroic and insane, giving them a perspective on life that few are lucky enough to find.  – That’s MASHONIT.

The 26-year-old Dean will also return to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series this season with details being announced soon.

Since 2016, Dean has 54 ARCA Menards Series starts with two poles, two wins, 14 top-five and 30 top-10 finishes driving for just two teams Mason Mitchell Motorsports and Win-Tron Racing.

Gus Dean adds two more ARCA Menards Series races to 2020 schedule

Gus Dean adds two more ARCA Menards Series races to 2020 schedule

STATESVILLE, N.C.: Two-time ARCA Menards Series (AMS) winner Gus Dean (@gusdean) will return to the series for at least two more races this season beginning with Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway on Sept. 17 and Memphis (Tenn.) International Raceway on Sat., Sept. 26 respectively.

Dean will continue to drive for Kevin Cywinski’s Win-Tron Racing aboard the No. 32 Chevrolet SS with industry veteran Jamie Jones leading the team as crew chief.

Bristol will mark Dean’s return to ARCA since competing at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in June.

“I’m looking forward to getting back to the race track,” said Dean who has spent the summer also competing in his Super Late Model.

“Short-track racing is what its all about and it doesn’t get any better than Bristol.

“I’ve never been there in an ARCA car – but do have experience there last year in a Truck. Having a limited amount of practice on our hands, I’m hopeful that the extra track time will help and we can get a good finish for Kevin, Jamie and everyone on this Win-Tron Racing team.”

Always a contender in ARCA competition, Dean’s No. 32 Chevrolet will be backed by MASHONIT Apparel Co.

Following Bristol, Dean and the team will trek to Memphis, where the Bluffton, SC. native is a previous track winner in 2014 while competing in the X-1R Pro Cup Series.

Jones is also a former winner at Memphis in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series in 2005 with driver Brandon Whitt.

Together, Dean and Jones hope to rekindle their separate magic and lead Win-Tron Racing back to Victory Lane.

“I’m stoked about going to Memphis, obviously,” added Dean. “It’s a fun race track and it brings a lot of memories from 2014 – where I beat some of the best of the best in Late Model competition.

“I know Jamie (Jones) is hungry to win there again and I hope we can go out for these next two ARCA Menards Series races and have a good showing and bring home some checkered flags.”

Veteran spotter and close friend Tyler Monn will spot for Dean at Bristol. Monn guided Dean to his second career ARCA victory at Elko Speedway in July 2018.

The 26-year-old Dean will also return to the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series this season with details being announced at a later date.

Since 2016, Dean has 53 ARCA Menards Series starts with two poles, two wins, 14 top-five and 30 top-10 finishes driving for just two teams Mason Mitchell Motorsports and Win-Tron Racing.

Gus Dean hoping to make another Talladega ARCA memory

Gus Dean hoping to make another Talladega ARCA memory

TALLADEGA, Ala.: Set to make his second ARCA Menards Series start of the 2020 season this weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, Gus Dean is hoping history can repeat itself in Saturday afternoon’s General Tire 200.

In 2016, Dean in just his second ARCA Menards Series race went to Victory Lane at Talladega in a nail-biting finish that was determined by inches. Since then, he has continued to enjoy strong finishes at the 2.66-mile superspeedway, but the Bluffton, S.C. native is ready to celebrate again.

“I feel very blessed to have another opportunity to come back to Talladega and race and try and get another ARCA win,” said Dean. “I’ll never forget April 2016, but its time to make new memories with new people in 2020 and I hope we can do that on Saturday.”

Dean will return to Win-Tron Racing for his 53rd career ARCA start under the leadership of veteran crew chief Jamie Jones who has worked with the two-time ARCA winner for the last 25 races.

The two have enjoyed modest success with pole, a win at Elko (Minn.) Speedway and numerous top-five and top-10 finishes to boost – but a superspeedway win would be the icing on the cake for this pair who has shown since 2018 with fast race cars on the superspeedways of Daytona and Talladega for the Kevin Cywinski-owned team.

“I love working with Jamie (Jones),” added Dean. “Jamie and I have great communication and a great friendship. He wants to win just as bad as I do – if not more. He spends a lot of time preparing our superspeedway car and he feels really good about this weekend’s piece. As do I.

“I’m just ready for Saturday to be here and get the ball rolling.”

Dean has four prior starts at Talladega with a win, one top-five and three top-10 finishes. He has not finished worse than 12th and has completed all 319 laps from 2016 to 2019.

And while the other superspeedway track of Daytona has not been as kind to him, he hopes for more of the same luck at Talladega for the fifth consecutive year.

“I always run well at the superspeedway tracks, but Talladega has certainly been kinder to me over the years. I’ve been super blessed to drive fast race cars and have great spotters and teams who have put me in the same position year after year.”

Like Daytona, MASHONIT Apparel Co. will support Dean’s effort for the 76-lap race.

MASHONIT Apparel Co. is a brand for those that live life wide open.  The people that look at something normal and think, “That’s not good enough,” “It can go faster” or “Let’s see what this thing can do.”

Those that have the hunger inside that keeps them just south of normal.

That never-ending hunger for speed and adrenaline that allows you to find the thin line between being heroic and insane, giving them a perspective on life that few are lucky enough to find.  – That’s MASHONIT.

With a limited practice session on Saturday afternoon to get their No. 32 MASHONIT Apparel Co. Chevrolet dialed in, Dean feels no matter where he starts by virtue of the random draw, his superspeedway experience will pay dividends.

“A short practice session followed by a shorter than normal race is going to put a lot of pressure on the teams to make sure you unload off the hauler the best of the best. You just have to hope the car is pretty close to perfect by the end of practice and then hope for the best.

“I think we’ll have an opportunity for adjustments if we need them at some point early in the race, but Jamie knows what I need from a drivers’ standpoint so I put my faith in him and the rest of the Win-Tron Racing guys and I’ll do my best from behind the wheel.”

Veteran spotter and close friend Tyler Monn will spot for Dean. Monn guided Dean to his second career ARCA victory at Elko in July 2018.

Dean will carry the MASHONIT Apparel Co. onboard camera for the General Tire 200 offering viewers a unique view from inside the cockpit.

Howie DiSavino III to Drive for Win-Tron Racing in NASCAR’s Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series

CONCORD, NC — It’s about to get busy for Howie DiSavino, III, in 2020. After several starts with Mooresville, N.C.-based Win-Tron Racing in 2019, the team is announcing DiSavino is signing on to pilot the team’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) entry. DiSavino’s truck series debut will be at Richmond Raceway, his home track, on Saturday, April 18, 2020, as well as, other select NGOTS and ARCA Menards Series races. The deal will also feature two new Virginia-based partners for DiSavino, KEES Travel™ and Bud’s Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electric.

“Everyone at Win-Tron Racing is very excited to have Howie back behind the wheel. From the time he first jumped in the #32 ARCA car at Elko, MN, we could see that Howie is a smart and intelligent driver. He is a quick learner and a respectful young man with a huge future in front of him. We are proud to be a part of that future. Howie is a rising star, and we are truly looking forward to working with him and his partners again!” said Kevin Cywinsky, owner of Win-Tron Racing and former American Speed Association Champion.

Having local partners join on for the season makes DiSavino’s debut even more special, “It feels amazing to show pride in my Virginia partnerships and show racing fans what KEES Travel™ and Bud’s Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electric have to offer. My partners have made my dream a reality, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate them.”

“It also means the world to me to be able to make my NASCAR debut in my hometown at Richmond Raceway. I started racing at Southside Speedway and Dominion. Through all of those races, I knew it was my dream to make it to NASCAR. Now it’s starting to sink in. I’m especially thankful for the support of my family. I know I’ll be making them proud,” said DiSavino of his NASCAR opportunity.

On the ARCA front, DiSavino has set a goal of top-10 finishes and sees the truck starts as a way to hone his skills and continue to learn about racing in NASCAR’s higher-level series. He knows that working with a team he already has a relationship with will help him in his transition, “I love the guys at Win-Tron and the way we work together. It will be a great year running with them on the ARCA side and the truck side. Working with PMG and Win-Tron, I have learned so much, and I want to continue to keep learning with them behind me.”

During the off-season, DiSavino has been busy keeping his skills sharp through simulation racing and staying active in the gym to be physically ready for this new level of racing. Yet, he views his biggest work as fostering relationships with new partners, who will be able to experience a new level of exposure and access to a larger group of potential customers.

“I couldn’t be happier with the new partnership with Howie DiSavino, III, and the opportunities surrounding the relationship. There are few things more important to our company than the KEES brand. We feel Howie represents that brand and our values well,” said Jeremy Grogg, RRP, CHA, President of KEES Vacations.

Robert W. Nelson, Owner/CEO of Bud’s Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electric echoed Grogg’s excitement on the new partnership with DiSavino, “When the option to partner with HDIII Racing became available, it was a no-brainer. Anytime I have the opportunity to get my people excited and demonstrate pride in my company and its direction with community involvement, I’m doing it. It’s great to be sharing support for HDIII Racing within other top-notch companies. I’ve known the DiSavino family for 2 decades and hold them in the highest regard. Howie is a shining example of focus and drive. It’s refreshing to see these qualities in a person his age. 2020 is going to be a great year for everyone involved.”

With a seat on a competitive team and dedicated partners, DiSavino is set to make an impact in the 2020 racing season but is keeping his definition of success simple, “A successful season is just to compete with the racers up front and to come home with the car or truck in one piece. I strongly believe we will have a great season with my team, partners and family. I want to focus on getting better and learning, my ultimate measure of success in 2020.”

Before getting behind the wheel of the truck, DiSavino’s first race will be in Win-Tron’s No. 32 ARCA Menards Series entry at Phoenix International Raceway (Avondale, Az.) on March 6.

About Howie DiSavino, III
A pair of free tickets. That’s what started Howie DiSavino’s love for racing at the age of 8. After his dad took him to an Arena Racing show in the Richmond, Virginia area with those tickets, young Howie begged his family for a racecar.

Finally, at age 13, Howie got his wish. He and his family spent a couple years racing the arena circuit before making the jump to full-fledged late models just two years later. Since then, he has grown as a driver and a person, contributing to his race team and his community utilizing racing as an avenue for charitable giving while also building relationships with his partners and supporters.

In 2019, Howie took another step toward his NASCAR dreams, making his ARCA debut with WinTron Racing at Elko Speedway in Minnesota. 2020 looks to be a promising year as this skilled, young driver makes his NASCAR debut in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.

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.

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.”

Howie DiSavino III Readies For Second Career ARCA Start at Lucas Oil Raceway

MOORESVILLE, NC (Sept. 25, 2019) — After an eye-opening and thrilling outing at Elko Speedway in July, Howie DiSavino III is climbing back behind the wheel of a Win-Tron Racing Chevrolet this weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. The start will be his second in the ARCA Menards Series, both of which will come on a pair of the most difficult short tracks the tour visits.

In July, DiSavino made the jump from late model stock cars to the higher-horsepower, slightly heavier ARCA machines under the guidance of car owner Kevin Cywinski and crew chief Jamie Jones. Elko Speedway was the site of his first national-level start, where he completed each of the 250 laps and captured a top ten finish, a strong accomplishment for any rookie making the jump to a national level series.

“We are really excited to have Howie back in the No. 32 Chevy at LOR,” said car owner Cywinski. “In his ARCA debut at Elko, earlier this year, he brought home an impressive top 10 finish. That was something we were all proud of for him. He has been working hard, getting as much seat time as he can since that race. I expect this to be a very successful event for Howie and the whole Win-Tron Racing team. We have raised our goals and have every expectation of achieving them with him.”

Some of the additional seat time DiSavino has been acquiring came at the unique .686-mile layout at LOR just two weeks ago. Racing a pro late model for Willie Allen Racing, DiSavino started the 100-lap event in third and raced amongst the top five until mechanical issues hampered the effort of the Mass Mutual of Richmond team. Despite the issues, he still recorded a 12th place finish.

“I’m really looking forward to seeing how the ARCA car goes around the track at LOR because it’s so much heavier and has more horsepower than the pro late model does,” DiSavino said in regards to the upcoming race. “We ran good and were up front all race, and I feel like we should have a good race there in the ARCA car. The biggest challenge will be to save tires and to avoid the wall because the groove is up high next to the wall. I’ve never raced anywhere like this, but I’m really looking forward to getting another opportunity to race there with Win-Tron.”

The ARCA race will expose second-time starter DiSavino not only to more power around the flat layout, but also more laps. Unlike his late model race where 100 laps was the scheduled distance, the ARCA Menards Series event will be contested over 200 circuits, with live pit stops, on national television.

Practice for the Herr’s Potato Chips 200 commences at 2pm ET on Saturday, October 5. Qualifying hits the track at 5pm with the green flag scheduled to fly at 8pm ET. MAVtv will carry the race live on their cable and satellite network while additional coverage can be found on the series website at ARCAracing.com.

COLBY HOWARD LOOKS TO STEP BACK IN THE SPOTLIGHT AT SALEM SPEEDWAY IN THE ARCA MENARDS SERIES

CONCORD, NC – This Saturday, Simpsonville, South Carolina’s Colby Howard will make his return to the ARCA Menards Series at Salem Speedway. In just three career ARCA starts, Howard has earned three Top 10 finishes, with an average finish of 9.0 heading into the weekend.

The high banked Indiana short track was the site of Howard’s ARCA Menards Series debut in 2018, where he started and finished in eighth. This time around, the 18-year-old plans on bettering his results with Win-Tron Racing in the No. 32 Project Hope/Yurpal, Inc. Chevrolet.

Howard was quoted saying, “I am really looking forward to returning to Salem. We had a good run in the test on Tuesday, and should have had a Top 5 finish in last year’s race until I made a mistake on pit road. This time around, it should be better, because our car is really solid on old tires, which is critical on Salem’s worn out surface.”

Earlier this season, Colby Howard debuted for team owner Kevin Cywinski and crew chief Jamie Jones at Iowa Speedway. The No. 32 team finished tenth at Iowa, and plan on bringing the same racecar to Salem.

Colby is yet another talented young prospect represented by PMG to make his way up the stock car racing ladder. He cites PMG’s guidance as being a key factor to his successful career.

The ARCA Menards Series heads to Salem Speedway on Saturday, September 14th, for the running of the Kentuckiana Ford Dealers Fall Classic 200. Fans can tune into MAVTV at 7:00 PM Eastern Time to see live coverage of the race, or follow along on www.ARCAracing.com for live updates.

Austin Wayne Self returns to ARCA Menards Series at Chicagoland Speedway

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – In a collaborative effort between AM Racing and Win-Tron Racing, the two organizations announced today the return of NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) veteran Austin Wayne Self (@AustinWSelf) to the ARCA Menards Series (AMS) for Thursday night’s Bounty 150 at Chicagoland Speedway.

Self, 23, will drive the team’s No. 32 Chevrolet with support from Win-Tron Performance and IceBox Helmet Coolers.

“I’m excited about getting back and racing in the ARCA Menards Series,” said Self the 2014 ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year.

“Win-Tron Racing has had some very competitive finishes this year and I know they are going to bring me a fast race car and I look forward to the opportunity to pull double duty this weekend at Chicagoland Speedway.”

Self, a native of Austin, Texas last competed in ARCA nearly two years at Road America (Wisc.) where in a second entry for Win-Tron Racing he finished sixth after starting 12th in 2017.

In all, Self in five years of competition in ARCA has 47 career starts with one win, 13 top-five and 31 top-10 finishes. In two starts at Chicagoland, he finished a track-best 12th after starting fourth in 2015.

Win-Tron Racing has run a select schedule in the ARCA Series in 2019 with drivers Gus Dean and AM Racing development driver Cole Glasson.

Self who will compete in Friday night’s Camping World 225 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series (NGOTS) race at Chicagoland is hopeful to run more ARCA races this season.

“We’re still looking at the schedule, but I think you’ll see me in or a race or two more after Chicagoland,” added Self. “I know that Kevin (Cywinski, Win-Tron Racing owner) and Jamie (Jones, crew chief) have put together a very competitive car and I look forward to our chance to go out there and contend for my second career ARCA win.”

Cywinski who serves as team manager of Self’s Gander Truck Series team says having Self compete in both races at Chicagoland will undoubtedly prove to be beneficial.

“Austin will do us a great job at Chicagoland,” sounded Cywinski. “The extra seat time will allow Austin to stay focused and bring back some positive feedback to not only the ARCA program but also acquire critical track time that should prove to be beneficial for the Truck Series program this weekend too.”
