SWR Racing in Crossville, Tennessee, would like to welcome shock
guru Daniel Martin on board to head Dream Racing Technologies! Daniel
has been hired to oversee and operate the shock side of the business
and also to assist the SWR Racing #116 team, which will strike out
in February with young gun Tanner English behind the wheel of their
potent Longhorn by Weaver racecars. (MRM
Daniel has been in the shock business for twenty (20) years and
has ran his own operation for the same amount of time in his Dawsonville,
Georgia shop. Dream Racing Technologies, now headed by Daniel, offers
extensive shock services on Ohlins, Penske, Bilstein, and JRI shocks,
as well as spring smashing consulting and other setup services.
For more information on Dream Racing Technologies or to inquire

Racing shop at 931.707.1355.
"We are just thrilled to have someone with Daniel's expertise
to oversee Dream Racing Technologies," exclaimed Randy Weaver
via telephone. "In today's racing world, shocks and springs
are the difference in winning or losing. Daniel has a ton of knowledge
and twenty years of experience to work off of, so we are definitely
looking forward to him joining our team. It will not only help our
own #116 program, but that vital information will also be shared
with all of our other Longhorn by Weaver and Dream Racing Technologies
The Dream Team and driver Tanner English will unload for the first
time in 2019 during "Speedweeks" in Georgia and Florida
with the ultra-competitive Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. Tanner
plans to enter the 'Super Bowl of Racing' at Golden Isles Speedway
near Brunswick, Georgia on February 1-2, as well as the 'Winternationals'
at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida from February 4-9.
As the '19 campaign wears on, the #116 team has plans to compete
full-time on the Schaeffer's Oil Spring Nationals Series, the Schaeffer's
Oil Southern Nationals Series, and the Schaeffer's Oil Fall Nationals
Series. You can view a tentative version of their 2019 racing schedule

Tanner English Lands Dream Ride with
SWR Racing for 2019 Season!
21, 2018) SWR Racing and Tanner English have recently
inked a deal to put the young Benton, Kentucky driver behind the
wheel of the #116 full-time for the 2019 racing season! According
to Team Manager Randy Weaver, Tanner will drive a potent Longhorn
by Weaver racecar - armed with a Phantom Race Engine - in a pick-and-choose
type schedule loaded with select national and regional Super Late
Model events. The new-look team is set to debut in February 2019
during "Speedweeks" in Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
action at both Golden Isles Speedway near Brunswick, Georgia and
East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida.
"I am thrilled to announce that Tanner (English) will drive
for SWR Racing next year," quoted Weaver in a telephone conversation.
"Tanner has shown in recent years that he is a heck of a wheelman
on the racetrack, but I'm already impressed how hard he works away
from the track. He wants to be at the shop and be as hands-on with
the racecars as possible, which is important and will pay dividends
when we get to racing. Tanner is a good, hard-working kid who is
grateful for what he's got and I'm happy to give him the opportunity
to drive our stuff. I have to thank all of our sponsors that we
have already lined up for 2019 and we are working on some more that
will be announced in the near future!"
With primary sponsorship coming from A.F. Stone Professional Medical
Services, Stone Land Clearing & Excavating, Tommy Pope Construction,
Diercks LTD of the Quad Cities, Henderson Motorsports, and Outlaw
Racing Southeast, Tanner will spend most of 2019 wheeling the familiar
#116 machine at area tracks throughout the Southeast. On occasion
when the SWR team feels the need to take a weekend off to regroup
and refresh their equipment, Tanner will pilot a sister car out
of sponsor Tommy Pope's racing stable.
"This is what I've been working towards my whole career -
to be considered for a high profile ride like SWR Racing,"
exclaimed English earlier today. "I met Randy (Weaver) for
the first time about a month ago and you couldn't ask for a better
guy. He has been straight forward with me from the start and it's
been a great experience so far. I'm really looking forward to seeing
what we can do together starting at Brunswick next February and
hopefully we can be a force to be reckoned with each time we pull
into the pit area. I can't thank Randy and Chip Stone enough for
putting their faith in me and I'd like to build something really
special with them for many years to come!"
The SWR Racing team - located in Crossville, Tennessee - is currently
looking for experienced crew help for the upcoming 2019 campaign.
Anyone interested in applying for a job can call Randy Weaver at
the race shop at 931.707.1355. Keep up on Tanner English and SWR
Racing throughout the 2019 season by clicking on www.RandyWeaverRacing.com.
A brand-new website is in the works and will be launched as soon
as all sponsors and details are finalized!
