2013 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Ryan Preece will return to Tommy Baldwin Racing for two Nationwide Series races in 2014, driving the No. 36 Chevrolet Camaro sponsored by East West Marine, based out of Manorville, New York. Preece will race at Richmond International Raceway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
In seven seasons on the NASCAR Modified circuit, Preece has picked up nine wins, 54 top 10 finishes and 11 poles in 95 starts. He made his NNS debut at New Hampshire last year for TBR, starting 27th and finishing 24th, four laps down.
"I can't wait, and I'm very happy to have this chance again,” said Preece. “You never know if your first race in a car could be your last one. Making the best of the opportunity is key. I'm very lucky to have someone like Tommy pushing and supporting me. He has given me a 'true' opportunity that is very hard to come by in today’s racing. There aren't very many car owners that will put you in a car like he is doing. I'm looking forward to getting back in a full body car and doing what I love to do. Driving for Tommy is fun because he is from 'modified country', and has the same personality that we all do. Working with all the guys at TBR is fun too, they are all hardcore racers and all have the same goal in mind. Also, I'm very lucky to have a guy like Brian Slaga behind me with East West Marine and his company. He supports me 100% and helps me with whatever is needed to race or be at the track."
"We are very excited to be able to support Ryan's continued progression through the NASCAR ranks and once again be a partner with Tommy Baldwin Racing," said Brian Slaga, President of East West Marine. "We fully support Ryan's career through the various racing series that he participates in. He is a great ambassador for East West Marine and we are proud to have him wave our flag. We look forward to his continued success for many years to come."
