While continuing to build a solid foundation in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) with driver Grant Quinlan and their No. 30 Ford Fusion, Mooresville, N.C.-based Rette Jones Racing (RJR) has recently expanded its program to include a technical alliance to Danny Watts Racing (DWR) and driver Spencer Davis.
The new relationship has grown quickly and has led to on-track success with Davis’s No. 82 Horton Avenues Material | Davis Poultry Chevrolet – including this past weekend at Memphis (Tenn.) International Raceway.
While Davis experienced mechanical woes during the Memphis 150 presented by AutoZone, the speed showcased by the Dawsonville, Ga. native throughout the weekend continued to attract the attention of the K&N East garage.
RJR team principal Mark Rette says their ability to offer a technical alliance to Danny Watts Racing which includes technical and setup information to Davis – will only propel his organization to the next level.
“We’re very fortunate to put out competitive cars nearly every week with our No. 30 Ford Fusion with Grant Quinlan,” offered Rette.
“The formation of a technical alliance to Danny Watts Racing, however, brings the ability to bring more information and knowledge to our circle – which should prove to be a benefit to both teams in the long run.”
Despite suffering his first did-not-finish at Memphis, Davis has posted one top-five and four top-10 finishes in the series’ opening six-races and occupies ninth in the championship standings heading to New Jersey Motorsports Park next weekend.
“Our relationship with Rette Jones Racing is a strong one,” offered Davis. “Mark has been a fixture in racing – particularly NASCAR and has offered us great insight and intel that has allowed our team to peak. As the year presses on, we hope our relationship only continues to enhance and we can put our car in Victory Lane.
“We will know when that happens, without the guidance and support of Rette Jones Racing, none of this would be possible.”
“At this point, checkered flags is what we’re after.”
