Welcome to the all new official website of Joe Warren and JW Motorsports; the home of the #11 dirt late model. Currently, we are driving a 2011 Rocket late model. I am also testing a Ford S374W 374 c.i. 540 HP crate motor for Ford Racing. My home track is Delaware International Speedway in Delmar, De. Please feel free to look around and don't forget to check out our sponsors at the bottom of this page. They are a huge part of my program and I feel very fortunate to have built the relationships that I have with all of them. If you can use their services, I am very confident that you would be nothing less than completely satisfied.
Wow! Mother Nature has quite a points lead on us already. It has been one full month since my tires have touched the clay oval at DIS. We have received more than our fair share of rain over the last month; four rain outs in a row. That might be a new track record! However, it seems as though this week we will finally get to race. Not because the weather will be clear on Saturday, but because we will be racing on FRIDAY! Yes, the weather again looks dreadful on Saturday, so the management team made a proactive decision and moved the event up to Friday night. With weather forecasts looking like Friday is full of sun and a 0% chance of rain, it was a smart decision on DIS' part. So make sure you come out on Friday night this week!
Opening night at Delaware International Speedway turned out to be a pretty good night. I finished third in my heat and started the feature in the sixth position. I ran there most of the night, but late in the race managed to snag fifth and end the race there. The car was pretty good and after looking at lap times, I was pretty happy. Although I am down at least 250 hp, my lap times weren't too far off of the leaders. I am still working on this motor package, but it has potential to be a very cost effective route into the super late models. I'm hoping to do even better next week!
It was an eventful night at Winchester Speedway. From the initial pill draw to the severe weather on the way home, it was quite an evening. I drew a horrible pill, like usual, and had to start in the back of the first heat. I ended up finishing 6th in the heat, this put me starting 16th in the 20 car feature. After many adjustments, we got the car much better at the end of the night. However, it wasn't good enough to move me up in the running order. I did manage to make up a few positions after falling back on the initial start, but it wan't substantial enough. I would end up finishing 16th. I like the track, but it's a tough one to get a good handle on. Check out the pics from Travis Tressel at WRT Speedwerx. They always do a great job with photos.
It's been a long winter, but race season is getting close. After a disappointing 2015 race season, I am hopeful for a successful 2016 campaign. Along with the hard work put in the shop, I picked up a couple new sponsors over the winter. I am proud to have Coldwell Banker Resort Realty from Seaford, De and WMF Watercraft & Marine from Long neck, De join our team. The car is just about ready for our first race at Winchester Speedway in Winchester, Va on April 2nd. After that, we will open up the season at Delaware International Speedway. I look forward to seeing you all at the track.
