CLUSTER SPRINGS, Va. – (Oct. 19, 2022) R&S Race Cars is looking for its next development driver to pilot their in-house Toyota Camry for the 2023 Late Model season. In only their first three years in business, R&S Race Cars’ customers have scored 44 victories and two CARS Tour championships with their chassis. As the business continues to grow, so does the opportunity for new young talent to enter R&S Race Cars’ driver development program.

The team is known for cultivating young talent in its house cars. This year 17-year-old Jonathan Shafer scored his first CARS Tour win from the pole at Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C., in August. The very next month 16-year-old Conner Jones earned his first trip to Victory Lane in the CARS Tour at Tri-County Motor Speedway in Hudson, N.C. Last week it was announced Jones will remain with R&S Race Cars for the full 2023 season.

“There is so much talent at the grassroots level and we want to help these young drivers hone their skills and hopefully continue to advance their careers in the sport,” said Marcus Richmond, co-owner of R&S Race Cars. “Our chassis have made a lot of trips to Victory Lane since Steve Stallings and I started this business together in 2020. We have really grown as a company thanks to some awesome sponsors like PepperJack Kennels, Solid Rock Carriers and Fire Suppression Solutions, and consulting support from MDM Consulting. I’m excited to keep building our 2023 house team with another talented driver.”
