Welcome to the official website of Joe Warren and JW Motorsports; the home of the #11 dirt late model. The car is a 2011 Rocket; powered by a S374W Ford 374 c.i 540 HP crate motor and regularly competes at Delaware International Speedway. Please take a few minutes to check out our sponsors at the bottom of this page. They are very important to our race team and we would appreciate it if you would keep them in mind if you can use their services.
After two straight rain outs, this weekend looks perfect for racing. I am going to use this weekend as a test session for the upcoming World of Outlaws show at Delaware International on Thursday Aug 14th.
We are getting into the summer grind now. It is hot and humid and this tends to lead to less than ideal track conditions. The heat races gave us a rough and dry track, but the feature's racing surface was much better. We started on the pole and led the first 7 laps of the caution free race. It took some time, but I would get passed by the two point leaders on the 7th trip around the 1/2 mile oval. The car was working pretty well, though, and I would go on to get my best finish of the season coming home third. There is still some tweaking to do, and I am continuously experimenting with things to see if we can make this thing get around the track even better. We have learned a lot so far, and will continue to learn as the season goes on.
The Super Late Model division at DIS has integrated Ford's S374W crate motor and Chevy's CT525 crate motor with weight breaks and a softer tire compound to compete against the open motor super late models. There is a lot of work to do before the season starts, and there will be an equal amount of work to do as I attempt to figure out how to make this new package competitive with the open motors. I can say this, It's going to be a very exciting year and I am looking forward to this new challenge! For more information on Ford's race built crate S374W motor, click here

After talking with CJ Jones of Jones Racing Products, I'm thrilled to be running a Jones Racing Products front end drive kit on my new Ford motor. I admired their products at the AARN Motorsports show in Philadelphia this past winter and know that this package will finish off this motor quite nicely.
