May 13, 2017 - Heartbreaking finish for NWR at Indianpolis

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Today’s Round 6 of the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, the USF2000 Grand Prix of Indianapolis Presented by Royal Purple Supporting the Lupus Foundation, saw a tough break for Newman Wachs Racing. The day started off well with the updated official results from yesterday’s race moving Dakota Dickerson up one position (to fourth), due to two cars being disqualified after the race last night.

The start of today’s race seemed like a carbon copy of yesterday, as three cars made contact in Turn One as soon as the green flag flew. This brought out a full-course caution, and by then, Dickerson had gained three spots moving him up to fourth.

May 12, 2017 - Fifth Place Finish for Newman Wachs Racing at Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Newman Wachs Racing headquarters is just a few hours from Indianapolis, so the team considers this race to be sort of a local race. Hence even the overcast skies at the beginning of the weekend could dampen the team’s enthusiasm of being at the beautiful an historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. 

The weekend got off to a very good start with driver Dakota Dickerson scoring the second-fastest time in yesterday’s first test session of the day. And on the very last lap of this morning’s qualifying session, Dickerson clinched fifth position for today’s Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda race on the 14-turn Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.  More here...

 

April 22, 2017 Crazy First Lap Mixes Things Up for NWR

Birmingham, Ala. – Today’s Round 4 of the Mazda USF2000 Grand Prix of Alabama Presented by Cooper Tires at Barber Motorsports Park got off to a pretty bad start for Newman Wachs Racing. On the very first lap, six cars, including Andre Castro’s #37 machine were involved in an incident in Turn 3. That ended Castro’s day, as he suffered suspension damage. 

Just a few seconds later, Dakota Dickerson got caught up in a three-car tangle at Turn 5, and fell back to 18th place, as the full-course yellow was brought out. Dickerson was patient, and on the re-start, with fourteen minutes left in the race, he fought his way back up to the very end and earned a 10th  place finish for the Newman Wachs Racing team. Dickerson was quoted as being “the best recovery drive of the day” .
