MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Win-Tron Racing will switch from Toyota to Chevrolet for the upcoming ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season.
Gus Dean, who drove to a fourth-place finish in the ARCA Racing Series standings last year, will return to the team to pilot the No. 32 Chevrolet. Dean’s car will continue to carry primary sponsorship from GREE Cooling Products in addition to Tradewinds Climate Systems and Baker Distributing Co.
“I’m very excited to be back with Win-Tron Racing and GREE for the 2018 ARCA season,” said Dean. “We made some major strides in our first season together and we have a lot of great things happening for the team to make sure we can not only continue that trend but contend for another championship this season.
“I can’t wait to get to Daytona.”
Jamie Jones has joined Win-Tron Racing to lead Dean’s efforts this season. An accomplished crew chief for decades, Jones brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the organization. Jones began his tenure at Win-Tron Racing before the Daytona test after a stint at MDM Motorsports.
“Jamie and I seemed to really hit it off good at the Daytona test,” added Dean. “I learned a lot from Todd (Myers) last year and he’s still going to be an important piece of the puzzle at Win-Tron, but we believe Jamie can bring some new ideas that we hope will hopefully put us in Victory Lane for GREE and Baker.”
Win-Tron Racing team principal Kevin Cywinski believes the organizational changes will give the team a serious boost towards their first championship.
“There’s a lot of good things happening at Win-Tron Racing,” he said. “From the return of Gus and GREE to the addition of Baker to the sponsorship family – to Jamie jumping on board and the overhaul to switching our organization to Chevrolet, we’re very proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish during the off-season.
“2017 was a great year, but we’re also striving to be even better in 2018. These changes should help us accomplish that. I’m appreciative to all of the guys behind the scenes and especially Todd (Myers) who was a huge part in making our Daytona test successful for both of our cars.”
