A TEAM WITH YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

NWR was formed in 2006, achieving much success in its tenure in the Atlantic Series.
Newman Wachs Racing (NWR) is a racing team owned by Eddie Wachs and, until his death, American actor and racer himself, Paul Newman. NWR is based outside of Chicago, in Mundelein, Illinois. Newman and Wachs shared the same passion for racing and met when they both competed in the Can-Am Series in the mid-1970’s. They raced together for 15 years in Trans-Am, Can-Am, and many other SCCA professional venues. Over the years, they talked about joining forces to create a driver-development race team. They put together a Champ Car Atlantic team for the 2006 season to meet their objectives. In 2009, John Edwards won the Championship for NWR, beating teammate Jonathan Summerton in a tiebreaker.

After a seven year hiatus, Newman Wachs Racing is returning to racing. As of 2017, the NWR team will be competing in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda.
