Howie DiSavino, III, Returns to Xfinity Series Competition at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

LOUDON, N.H.: NASCAR Xfinity Series rookie Howie DiSavino III has been waiting more than three months to seek redemption as he returns to competition with Alpha Prime Racing for Saturday afternoon’s Crayon 200 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

In his Xfinity Series debut at the tough and demanding Martinsville (Va.) Speedway in April, DiSavino III impressed the competition with a stout qualifying performance but was hindered during the Call 811 Before You Dig 250 by a mechanical failure.

Knowing he had the potential to contend for a top-10 finish with his Mooresville, N.C.-based team, he returns to the track aboard his No. 44 Chevrolet Camaro determined to finish what he started more than 90 days ago.

“I have been patiently waiting for my turn to get back behind the wheel,” offered DiSavino III.

“When you don’t compete full-time and you are as hungry as I am to showcase my potential, those days that you wait sometimes feel like years.

“However, the time to get back on track with my Alpha Prime Racing team is almost here and we are ready to finish what we started at Martinsville.”

DiSavino III, 21, has never been to New Hampshire’s “Magic Mile” but he has spent the last couple of months doing what he can to make sure when he climbs aboard his race car for practice on Friday afternoon, he’ll quickly fall in line with the rest of the field.

“Nothing beats actual seat time but taking the time to really improve your craft on iRacing has been important for me and my career,” he said. “I have spent a lot of time on iRacing, spent time watching old races, talking to other drivers, and even looking at photos of the track.

“I don’t want to do anything that is going to put us behind this weekend, so it’s super important to use the short practice to our benefit. If we have a good baseline from practice that should propel us forward for qualifying and the rest of the weekend.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been more ready to get back to the track and prove myself not only to my team but the partners that keep me on the race track.”

ClearCryptos will serve as the primary marketing partner of DiSavino III’s No. 44 Chevrolet Camaro for his second career Xfinity Series start.

ClearCryptos’ goal is to create clarify, accountability, and success to the Crypto marketplace with their unique relationships in technology, government and law enforcement.

In addition to ClearCryptos, Bangor Truck Equipment, Bryson’s 4-Wheel Auto Repair, Coop’s LLC., and The Inside Groove will serve as associate marketing partners on DiSavino’s No. 44 Chevrolet Camaro.
When it comes to the race on Saturday, DiSavino III knows patience will be his best friend, but also knows he has to push it when it comes to getting the best finish possible.

“Of course, there is some pressure on the line for myself on Saturday,” sounded DiSavino III. I want to do well not only for myself, but for the people that support me and my team, but I’m going to remember that I can’t push the envelope too far at New Hampshire because the corners are so flat.
“If our No. 44 ClearCryptos Chevrolet Camaro isn’t the best at the start of the race, I just have to be patient until we can make an adjustment. If I want to contend for a strong finish, I need to be around for the end of the race. If we can avoid any chaos and run a clean race, I think contending for a top-15 finish is certainly achievable and would feel like a win.”

Veteran Cup spotter Clayton Hughes will guide DiSavino from above this weekend as his spotter.
Following New Hampshire, the Chesterfield, Va. native will return to Alpha Prime Racing at Kansas Speedway on Sat., Sept. 10, 2022, followed by Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on Oct. 1, 2022, and the penultimate Xfinity Series race of the season at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway on Oct. 29, 2022.

Howie DiSavino, III, Focused on Xfinity Debut at Martinsville Speedway

MARTINSVILLE, Va.: After experiencing the hardship of failing to make his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut last weekend at Richmond (Va.) Raceway, Howie DiSavino, III, has regrouped and is focused on starting this chapter of his racing career by taking the  green flag in Friday night’s Call 811 Before You Dig 250 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

While DiSavino admits that missing Richmond was a tough circumstance for himself, his partners and his Alpha Prime Racing team, the 20-year-old is determined to use the disappointment as motivation and deliver a successful debut at the historic Virginia short track. 

“I am looking forward to Martinsville Speedway this weekend,” said DiSavino. “I cannot thank everyone at Alpha Prime Racing, my partners, my friends and family for the continued support. There will always be good and bad that a driver will experience in racing – but how you respond is always what everyone will remember. 

“I am staying focused and determined and eager to showcase my ability at Martinsville Speedway on Friday night.”

DiSavino has minimal experience at Martinsville’s tight 0.526-mile paperclip oval, but he isn’t letting the inexperience hold him back. 

“I am very fortunate enough to be surrounded by individuals who want me to excel at Martinsville on Friday night,” added DiSavino. “From my manager, Austin Theriault, to my driving coach, Joey Coulter, and even to my team owner Tommy Joe Martins, I am digesting all the advice that they are giving me and plan to use it to my advantage from practice to qualifying and then the race.” 

For his Xfinity Series debut, DiSavino and his Alpha Prime team will welcome Richard Green Racing as a major associate partner for the eighth race of the 2022 season. 

A native of Enosburg Falls, Vermont, Green is a longtime supporter of the Northeast Racing scene and friend of Theriault. A former driver himself, Green has now hung up his helmet and focused on being a successful car owner at the famed Thunder Road Speedway in Barre, Vt. 

In addition to being a car owner, Green has been notorious for supporting other young drivers in their racing endeavors and will attend Friday night’s race to support the Chesterfield, Va. driver. 

In addition to Richard Green Racing, KEES Vacations, Webb Development, MassMutual Greater Richmond, Q Barbeque Richmond, Azalea D Realty, 89 Paint, Campbell Lawn Care and Simms Sweets will serve as associate marketing partners on DiSavino’s No. 44 Chevrolet Camaro. 

“The goal for Friday night is to deliver everyone a strong and positive finish,” sounded DiSavino. “This weekend is about making progress from the moment our No. 44 Alpha Prime | Richard Green Racing Chevrolet Camaro hits the track to the checkered flag. 

“From there, we can re-evaluate and focus forward on being better for the next race.”  Veteran Cup spotter Clayton Hughes will guide DiSavino from above this weekend as his spotter.

Following Martinsville, DiSavino who will turn 21 on Sunday, April 10 will return to Alpha Prime Racing next month at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway for the Alsco Uniforms 300 on Saturday, May 28, 2022.

Howie DiSavino, III, Running Partial Xfinity Series Schedule with Alpha Prime Racing

Alpha Prime Racing announced that Howie DiSavino, III, will join the organization’s NASCAR Xfinity Series driver lineup for select starts in 2022 as the team competes with two full-time entries.

DiSavino, 20, made his NASCAR debut in 2019 in the ARCA Menards Series earning an impressive top-10 finish in his first event. After competing in both the ARCA Series and running multiple Pro Late Model events during the 2020 season, DiSavino made his official NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut in 2021 at Richmond Raceway.

The Chesterfield, VA native credits his passion to racing after winning a pair of free tickets to an Arena Racing show in the Richmond, VA area. Since then, the rush of racing had him hooked. Across his career, Howie has raced in multiple NASCAR series while securing top-10 and top-15 finishes along the way. Howie is a young talented driver who will be a positive addition to the Alpha Prime Racing team in 2022.

“I am very excited to race with Alpha Prime Racing. I think we will have a great season together! It has been a dream come true to race in the Xfinity Series,” said DiSavino. “Tommy Joe is giving me that shot to make my dream come true. I couldn’t thank everyone at Alpha Prime enough for this opportunity!”

Howie is locked-in to make his Alpha Prime Racing and Xfinity Series debut at Phoenix Raceway on Saturday, March 12th.

“A big part of the growth of Alpha Prime Racing will be how well we can develop young drivers,” said Tommy Joe Martins, Co-owner of Alpha Prime Racing. “I’m thankful that Howie, his family, his sponsors, and his mentor and manager Austin Theriault believe in what we’re doing here and are giving us that chance. We want to give him the opportunity to grow and be successful.”

DiSavino will be joined by Kaz Grala in his debut with Alpha Prime Racing at Phoenix Raceway in March.

Howie DiSavino, III, to race in late Mother’s memory at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

LAS VEGAS, Nev.: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) rookie Howie DiSavino III heads to Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway for Friday night’s Victoria’s Voice Foundation 200 presented by Westgate Resorts competing with a heavy heart. 

Following his most recent Truck Series start at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway last Thursday night, DiSavino’s mother Dawn lost her five-year battle with cancer on Saturday, September 18. 

Determined to keep his emotions in-check, the Chesterfield, Va. native has decided to fulfill his obligations to Jordan Anderson Racing (JAR) and his marketing partners and race, but he is also poised to honor his mother’s last words to her only son, “Pass them all” in his Las Vegas debut. 

“The last few days have been the most difficult of my life,” said DiSavino. “My mom was one of my biggest fans and it is going to be incredibly hard to get into that truck on Friday night knowing that I won’t be able to send her a text message or follow-up with a phone call or even a hug, but I know she would want me to continue my dreams. 

“I’m going to do my best to “pass them all” just like she told me too shortly before she died. The outpouring of support and condolences has been overwhelming, but I am incredibly grateful to each individual who has thought of me and my family during this difficult time.

“I know my Mom is watching me from heaven and I hope I continue to make her proud not only this weekend at Las Vegas but whatever my racing career brings in the future. I love you, Mom.”

DiSavino, 20, will make his fifth Truck Series start of the season on Friday night and hopes to rebound from a disappointing 28th place finish at Bristol. 

“We were really fast, but Bristol was tough,” added DiSavino. “We got collected in a few incidents, but it was ultimately a mechanical issue that put us out of the race. 

“The guys on the Jordan Anderson Racing team have been working hard on our Las Vegas truck over the last few weeks and I hope we’re able to go to Las Vegas and not only pass them all but recover for a career-best finish in the Truck Series.” 

Longtime DiSavino partner Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning will serve as the primary marketing partner on the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado, while KEES Vacations will hold an associate partnership role in the triple header weekend with the three national series of NASCAR all in competition in Sin City.  

“I cannot thank my primary partners Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning and KEES Vacations enough for this opportunity and sticking with me through a most challenging week. There are no words to describe what their support means to me, especially when you go through something like this. I hope I make them and all of our partners proud on Friday night.” 

In addition to KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Azalea D Realty, Bommarito Automotive Group, Lucas Oil, MassMutual Greater Richmond, and Q Barbeque Richmond will serve as associate marketing partners on DiSavino’s No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado. 

Keeping his mother’s spirit close to him, DiSavino’s passenger door will adorn a special name rail decal. 

In addition to Bristol, DiSavino made his NCWTS debut in April at Richmond (Va.) Raceway and competed at both Texas Motor Speedway and Pocono (Pa.) Raceway in June. He is also a six-time participant in the ARCA Menards Series where he earned two top-10 finishes for AM Racing. 

Former winning NASCAR driver Reed Sorenson will continue to guide DiSavino from above this weekend as his spotter.

Howie DiSavino, III, returns to Truck Series competition at Bristol Motor Speedway

STATESVILLE, N.C.: After a brief break from competition, Howie DiSavino III will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) scene with Jordan Anderson Racing (JAR) for his fourth career start in next Thursday night’s UNOH 200 presented by Ohio Logistics at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway. 

DiSavino has impressed in his three prior Truck Series races this season, including scoring a career-best 22nd place finish in his most recent race at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway in June. 

For the second time this season, DiSavino will compete on a short track after making his NCWTS debut in April at his hometown track of Richmond (Va.) Raceway. 

With confidence remaining on his side, the 20-year-old will soon head to “Thunder Valley” eager to deliver his first career top-20 result. 

“I’m stoked to be back with Jordan Anderson Racing for Bristol,” said DiSavino. “Jordan (Anderson) and his team have been exceptional to work with and really have made me feel comfortable in making my transition from ARCA to NASCAR.

“We have made significant gains in every race that we’ve been together and I expect Bristol to be no different. Even though I have never raced at Bristol, I have taken the steps to readily prepare myself for what I expect to be a grueling and intense race. I plan to have a lot of fun though too.” 

When it comes to conquering his goal of earning his first top-20 finish, DiSavino will rely on the advice and experience of the team he has assembled around him. 

“I am lucky to have the ears of Jordan, my manager Austin (Theriault) and coach Joey (Coulter). They all have experience at Bristol and know what it takes to conquer that place. I’ve never been there so the green flag will be my first lap ever turned. 

“I know it is not going to be easy, but they never said anything in racing was going to be, so I take this latest challenge in stride with the determination to stay focused, stay out of trouble and most important of all be respectful of those around me. 

“I plan to take the races in stages. I want to stay on the lead lap, that’s the most important. Getting comfortable in Stage 1. Keep working on the balance of our truck throughout Stage 1 and Stage 2 and forging ahead in Stage 3 for the best finish possible. If things go well at Bristol, hopefully there is some more Truck Series racing in my future before the season ends.” 

Longtime DiSavino partner Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning will serve as the primary marketing partner on the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado, while KEES Vacations will hold an associate partnership role in the quadruple weekend with ARCA and the three national series of NASCAR all in competition at the World’s Fastest Half-Mile. 

“I cannot thank my primary partners Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning and KEES Vacations enough for this opportunity. 

“They have been superior partners not only this season but throughout my racing career and I want to deliver for them in a big way on Thursday night.” 

In addition to KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Azalea D Realty, Bommarito Automotive Group, Lucas Oil, MassMutual Greater Richmond, and Q Barbeque Richmond will serve as associate marketing partners on DiSavino’s No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado. 

In addition to Pocono, DiSavino made his NCWTS debut in April at Richmond (Va.) Raceway and competed at Texas Motor Speedway in June. He is also a six-time participant in the ARCA Menards Series where he earned two top-10 finishes for AM Racing.

Howie DiSavino, III, returns to Jordan Anderson Racing at Pocono Raceway

LONG POND, Pa: On the heels of his career-best NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) finish two races ago at Texas Motor Speedway, rookie Howie DiSavino, III, returns to Jordan Anderson Racing (JAR) for Saturday afternoon’s CRC Brakleen 150 at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

Receiving an 11th hour call from team owner Jordan Anderson days before his second career Truck Series start at Texas, DiSavino made most of the opportunity – finishing 23rd – a respectable finish for his intermediate track debut.

With confidence on his side, the 20-year-old treks to Pocono looking to dance with the track dubbed the “Tricky Triangle” and eager to deliver another solid result.

“Texas was an unbelievable opportunity and I’m thankful to have another chance to run for Jordan Anderson Racing this weekend at Pocono,” said DiSavino. “I learned a lot at Texas, especially when it comes to the handling of a truck at higher speeds – including side drafting.

“I honestly feel that should all be helpful for me at Pocono this weekend too. We’ve been planning to run this race since Texas and I’ve been focusing really hard, studying film, doing a lot of iRacing and just talking to the team and some others close to me about what to expect and anticipate this weekend.

“It is a very short race, but I have the mindset to be methodical and do my best to have another clean, strong race together.”

To help DiSavino grasp Pocono’s monstrous layout, he will attend Thursday’s ARCA Menards Series open test session as a guest of Rette Jones Racing.

“I won’t be competing in the ARCA test at Pocono, but being able to be at Pocono with my manager Austin (Theriault) and be a guest of Rette Jones Racing will be extremely beneficial to me,” added DiSavino.

“I’ll be able to get on a radio and digest the feedback between the team, experience the test from different locations of the track and just put my head into the game even more by watching other cars compete on Thursday.
“You can truly learn a lot just by watching and I plan to do a lot of that on Thursday afternoon. Hopefully, it helps for Saturday too.”

Longtime DiSavino partner Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning will serve as the primary marketing partner on the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado, while KEES Vacations will hold an associate partnership role in the quadruple weekend with two races for the NASCAR Cup Series, as well as Truck and Xfinity Series competition.

“I cannot thank my primary partners Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning and KEES Vacations enough for this opportunity and I hope it continues to open the door to do some more Truck Series racing throughout the remainder of the 2021 season.”

In addition to KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Azalea D Realty, Bommarito Automotive Group, Lucas Oil, MassMutual Greater Richmond, and Q Barbeque Richmond will serve as associate marketing partners on DiSavino’s No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado.

In addition to Texas, DiSavino made his NCWTS debut in April at Richmond (Va.) Raceway. He is also a six-time participant in the ARCA Menards Series where he earned two top-10 finishes for AM Racing.

Former winning NASCAR driver Reed Sorenson will continue to guide DiSavino from above this weekend as his spotter.

Based on the metrics set by NASCAR without practice or qualifying, DiSavino will start his Pocono Raceway debut from the 33rd position.

Howie DiSavino, III, readies for Truck Series debut at Richmond Raceway

RICHMOND, Va.: The anticipation is nearly over for Howie DiSavino, III, who will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut for Jordan Anderson Racing (JAR) in Saturday afternoon’s ToyotaCare 250 at Richmond (Va.) Raceway.

Richmond is more than just a debut for the recently turned 20-year-old upcoming sensation.

It’s an opportunity and audition at the same time.

The sixth Truck Series race of the season is nestled just 18 miles south of DiSavino’s hometown of Chesterfield, Va., and the stands will be packed this weekend with plenty of support from friends to family and marketing partners.

“I’ve been looking forward to Richmond ever since we made the announcement a couple of weeks ago and I can’t believe it’s almost here,” said DiSavino who most recently competed in the ARCA Menards Series season opener for fellow Truck Series team AM Racing.

“This opportunity is a huge blessing but also the biggest opportunity of my life and I will do everything I can to make sure we come out of Richmond on Saturday afternoon with a lot of positivity on our side.”

To prepare himself to negotiate Richmond’s 0.875-mile short track, DiSavino has been studying film, photos and even spending a lot of time iRacing – hoping his hard work behind the scenes will prove to be beneficial for the 250-lap race.

“I’ve been diligently doing everything I possibly can to get myself ready for Richmond,” added DiSavino. “I’ve spent a lot of time on YouTube, looking at photos, talking to other drivers who have raced at Richmond and so on. Without practice or qualifying, my first laps at Richmond will be when that green flag drops.

“That can be challenging for any driver – but as a team, we accept and are ready to conquer the challenge.”

Longtime DiSavino partners KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning will serve as the primary marketing partners on the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado in the doubleheader weekend with the NASCAR Cup Series.

“I cannot thank my primary partners KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning enough for this opportunity and I hope it opens the door to do some more Truck Series racing throughout the 2021 season.”

In addition to KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Azalea D Realty, Q Barbeque Richmond and MassMutual Greater Richmond will serve as associate marketing partners on DiSavino’s No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado.

To help kick off his NASCAR debut weekend, DiSavino will join his No. 3 KEES Vacations | Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning Chevrolet Silverado at Q Barbeque Richmond (13800 Fribble Way, Midlothian, Va. 23112) beginning at 5:00 p.m. on Thurs., April 15 in a fundraiser benefiting ASK Childhood Cancer Center.

Former winning NASCAR driver Reed Sorenson will guide DiSavino around Richmond as his spotter.

Additional details on DiSavino’s 2021 program are forthcoming.

Howie DiSavino, III, to make NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Richmond Raceway for Jordan Anderson Racing

MOORESVILLE, N.C.: Embarking on the next step of his career, Howie DiSavino, III, will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut for Jordan Anderson Racing (JAR) at Richmond (Va.) Raceway for the ToyotaCare 250 on Sat., Apr. 17, 2021.

Richmond will be an important race for DiSavino, who turns 20 on Apr. 10 – as the sixth Truck Series race of the season is planted just 18 miles south of DiSavino’s hometown of Chesterfield, Va.

“I’m incredibly humbled about this opportunity to not only compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with Jordan Anderson Racing but for the chance to race in front of my family, friends and partners,” said DiSavino.
“This is undoubtedly the biggest race of my career, but I am up for the challenge.”

DiSavino enters the Truck Series after competing in seven ARCA Menards Series races, including this year’s season-opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway in February for AM Racing. In his superspeedway debut, DiSavino cleverly drafted from his 25th place starting position and raced inside the top-10 for most of the event.
A late-race flat tire sent DiSavino to the rear of the field where he was able to climb back to 13th at the checkered flag. Of his seven ARCA starts, he has maneuvered two top-10s and six top-16 finishes between 2019 and 2021, respectively.

Longtime DiSavino partners KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning will serve as the primary marketing partners on the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado in the doubleheader weekend with the NASCAR Cup Series.

“The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is stacked this season, added DiSavino. “Richmond is going to be an extremely competitive race and tire management will be key. Fortunately, I have surrounded myself with good people who are adequately helping me prepare to make Richmond a successful weekend both on and off the track.

“If we can come out of the race with a strong top-20 finish that will certainly feel like a win.

“I just want to do a great job for Jordan (Anderson) and our partners KEES Vacations and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning and with the hope to do some more Truck Series racing throughout the 2021 season.”

Anderson, who drove his family-owned team to a career-high second-place finish in the season-opener at Daytona is excited to welcome DiSavino to the team and is eager to help make his debut memorable.

“I have been keeping my eye on Howie for a little while now, and when Austin (Theriault, manager) said he was available and exploring NASCAR opportunities, I wanted to jump at having him make his NASCAR debut in one of our trucks,” said Anderson. “My team and I have built this team from the ground up, and Howie shares the drive and determination that I admire in a driver. I’m looking forward to seeing him be successful.”

Of course, DiSavino isn’t just getting support and confidence from his team. His marketing partners have been patiently waiting for the opportunity to be a part of a historic moment for the rising star.

For Jeremy Grogg, CEO of KEES Vacations, this partnership is the culmination of many years of hard work.

“I love NASCAR Truck Series racing. As a race fan, and a business owner, it is a dream come true to have such an important role in Howie’s NASCAR debut,” he said. “We are excited to be able to highlight and promote KEES Vacations to the hundreds of thousands of NASCAR fans, and look forward to helping many plan their next dream vacation!”

“For Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning, joining the HDIII Racing team through a sponsorship opportunity, has been everything we could hope for,” said Rob Nelson, President of Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning.

“The closeness and comradery with Howie, his dad and all the others involved just feels like we are a part of an organization that cares about its partners. They’re focused on creating and exploiting every possible opportunity for the betterment of the sponsors in concert with the true star of the show, Howie DiSavino III.

Additional details on DiSavino’s 2021 program are forthcoming.

Howie DiSavino III brings confidence into ARCA superspeedway debut

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla: When it comes to superspeedway racing, confidence is always a good thing.

For ARCA Menards Series driver Howie DiSavino III, confidence is on his side ahead of Saturday afternoon’s Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire 200 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.

Undoubtedly, the 2021 ARCA season opener will be the biggest race of DiSavino’s career, but that does not seem to faze the AM Racing development driver one bit.

“It’s important for me to do well at Daytona this weekend,” said DiSavino. “I really want to give this AM Racing team some momentum.

“Kevin (Cywinski), Jamie (Jones) and everyone on this No. 32 Chevrolet are going to Daytona with the mindset of winning the race and I think we can do that – I just need to do my job and have a little luck along the way.

“I’m incredibly thankful for this opportunity to compete on this big stage,” added DiSavino. “It’s a very humbling moment for me and my family, but once I climb into the car on Saturday, I can’t treat it as the biggest race or biggest chance of my career – I just have to treat it as another race.”

That cool, calm demeanor could be the winning ticket for DiSavino aboard Kevin Cywinski’s No. 32 Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning | Front Runner Boats Chevrolet. Of course, AM Racing (formerly WinTron Racing) is no stranger to Daytona’s victory circle.

Cywinski alongside crew chief Jamie Jones has been fielding the No. 32 Chevrolet for several years around the 2.5-mile superspeedway and while also having fast race cars, when the payday window opened, they always found themselves collected in someone else’s mishap.

DiSavino isn’t thinking about the dreaded “Big One” this weekend, because chances are, there will be nothing he can do to prevent being collected. What he can do is act off instinct and the guidance of his spotter, Tyler Monn.

To help prepare DiSavino for his superspeedway debut, the Chesterfield, Va. native participated in the open ARCA Menards Series test at Daytona last month with Jones and Monn by his side.

“I learned a lot at the test,” added DiSavino. “It certainly can be intimidating, but I felt like we made the best of the test for sure. We made adjustments throughout the two days and my comfort level was really at its best on Saturday and I feel like I’ve done my part studying up on the prior races since the test that will all help with the cause and our goal.

As DiSavino prepares for his sixth career ARCA Menards Series race, he knows he doesn’t have to go far outside his circle for advice on how to conquer Daytona.

DiSavino’s manager is former ARCA Daytona winner and former series champion Austin Theriault who captured both crowns during the 2017 season. Theriault has not only been instrumental in mentoring his young driver in the car but out of the seat too.

Former ARCA winner Joey Coulter has also played an important part in coaching Howie, in preparation for the biggest race of his career.

“Having them (Austin and Joey) is going to help me with my learning curve as I continue to climb the ranks. I’m glad they are on my side,” sounded DiSavino.

“Hopefully, our race ends with a strong finish and something to be proud about looking ahead to the rest of 2021.”

Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning, Front Runner Boats and KEES Vacation will support DiSavino in 2021.

Additional details on DiSavino’s 2021 program are forthcoming.

Howie DiSavino III set to embrace ARCA superspeedway debut

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla: ARCA Menards Series driver Howie DiSavino III is kicking off the 2021 season by taking his next major leap in his Motorsports career by tackling the high banks of Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway for this weekend’s annual pre-season test.

DiSavino III has been steadily ramping up his resume and aggressively moving through the ladder of different tracks and scenery – but preparing for his superspeedway debut next month at the “World Center of Racing” is the opportunity of a lifetime.

“This is an awesome way to start 2021,” said DiSavino who will pilot the No. 32 Chevrolet.

“Every racer dreams for the chance to compete at Daytona and the test this weekend is the stepping stone to making that dream a reality. I can’t wait to get on the track Friday.”

To kick off the 2021 ARCA season, DiSavino continues his relationship with Win-Tron Racing and crew chief Jamie Jones, but during the offseason – Win-Tron Racing was absorbed under the AM Racing banner which offers the opportunity for both organizations to expand their horizons.

Still housed at their Statesville, N.C. facility, AM Racing also fields a full-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team – a path that DiSavino would eventually like to follow.

But before tackling the aspirations of becoming a NASCAR driver, the Chesterfield, Va. native is focused on Daytona.

“It’s a head down, fin-up type of weekend,” added DiSavino. “I think the time will go by fast, but we have a lot to accomplish. I’m sure it will take a couple of laps to get comfortable – but from there it’s about making our car as fast as we can. Some changes will work, some changes won’t – but that’s all a part of the experience.”

Throughout the two-day session, DiSavino will also be able to lean on driver coach and mentor Austin Theriault, a former Daytona ARCA winner.

“To have Austin be an ear this weekend is huge for my development,” DiSavino said. “Austin has been there through the trials and tribulations and having the opportunity to dissect the track time with him will only help me improve between the test and the race.”

Preparing to make his sixth career ARCA Menards Series start next month in the season-opening Lucas Oil 200 driven by General Tire, DiSavino knows he’ll have the equipment to contend for the victory.

“We’re testing this weekend to put us in a position to win the race next month,” sounded DiSavino. “Kevin (Cywinski, team owner) and Jamie (Jones, crew chief) have a knack for putting together extremely fast superspeedway cars, and I don’t expect 2021 to be any different.

“I know a lot of the race can boil down to luck, but hopefully we can just be in the right place at the right time and start the year with a strong finish and a lot of momentum.”

Front Runner Boats and Bud’s Heating & Air Conditioning will support DiSavino in 2021.

Additional details on DiSavino’s 2021 program is forthcoming.
