Brian Slaga, owner of East West Marine, has sponsored Ryan for several years, and will be represented on the No. 8 Chevy with Tommy Baldwin Racing. East West Marine is a supplier of marine lumber and timber, vinyl seawall, composite sheet pilings, and many varieties of seawall accessories. Based out of Manorville, N.Y., East West Marine specializes in waterfront property all throughout the New England region, with their number one goal being customer service.
“Ryan runs in a lot of different series throughout the Northeast and we try to support all his efforts. Ryan is a great ambassador for East West Marine and we are extremely proud to have him representing us,” said owner Brian Slaga. “Tommy and I had spoken earlier in the year about possibly doing something with Ryan in 2014, but when he called me a couple of weeks ago and presented the opportunity for Ryan to make his Nationwide debut this year, it was an easy decision for us to jump on board and support that. East West Marine is very excited to be partnered with TBR in getting Ryan’s career to the next level.”
“I am excited to have Ryan Preece in our No. 8 Nationwide Chevy in New Hampshire,” said team owner Tommy Baldwin. “Watching Ryan’s career grow over the years, mixed with my continued support of the Northeast racing community, have all combined to give us this opportunity to put Ryan in the car. I am really looking forward to seeing him take to the track at Loudon.”
