Thomasville, North Carolina
Danish journeyman racing driver Thomas Serwin will next week attempt to become the first from his nation approved to race in an ARCA sanctioned stock car event on the world famous Daytona 2.5 mile Superspeedway.
Serwin, a native of Aarhus will need to complete laps whilst running with a group of cars, known as ‘drafting’, and driving by himself, demonstrating to officials his car control and understanding of the track limits. Prior to realizing this NASCAR dream Thomas has tested in a NASCAR Late Model Truck and raced extensively in Grand Touring and Sports Cars in high level European competition. This new discipline however presents man challenges but is something he is confident and excited about.
“Its been a while since I last drove a racecar, so I am excited to get back into a car even though these cars a very different from what I am used to. It’s a challenge but I am looking forward to it” commented the Dane.
The test day is set for December 19th and Serwin will drive the MacDonald Motorsports / Rick Ware Racing (MMS/RWR) Chevrolet Impala and he will be partnered by Wolf Viral, Sequelo and Den Lille Kro.
The MMS/RWR partnership is headed up by two of the most experienced men in NASCAR today, namely Randy MacDonald and Rick Ware. Joint ventures between them have netted many race podiums including a 3rd overall in a 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series race and top fives at Talladega in the Camping World Truck Series.
Should he gain the necessary accreditation Serwin will aim to start the season opener ARCA MAV-TV 200 by Peak Anti Freeze race on February 14th. The race precedes the opening Sprint Cup Duel event and will be televised live across the USA and Canada by Fox Sports 1.
