Mundelein, Ill. – Newman Wachs Racing presented their 2017 car today and launched their website, as they get ready to introduce their driver line-up. Next season, NWR will be competing in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda. 

“I think our new design will really stick out when our cars are out on track,” said team manager Brian Halahan. “I wanted to change things up a bit from the cars we ran in the past, while keeping the same color combination. Newman Wachs Racing has orange and white cars for al the years we raced, except the first season. Back in the day, Eddie had a few orange race cars, so I guess that had some influence on what we came up with. The car numbers are expected to be announced soon, along with our driver line-up. Currently, number 36, which won the 2009 Atlantic Championship for NWR, is being used.” 

About the Newman Wachs Racing Team:
Newman Wachs Racing (NWR) is a racing team owned by Eddie Wachs and, until his death, American actor and racer himself, Paul Newman. NWR is based outside of Chicago, in Mundelein, Illinois.  Newman and Wachs shared the same passion for racing and met when they both competed in the Can-Am Series in the mid-1970’s.  They raced together for 15 years in Trans-Am, Can-Am, and many other SCCA professional venues. Over the years, they talked about joining forces to create a driver-development race team. They put together a Champ Car Atlantic team for the 2006 season to meet their objectives. In 2009, John Edwards won the Championship for NWR, beating teammate Jonathan Summerton in a tiebreaker.
