UPDATE: Fox Sports’ Bob Pockrass reports that Rick Ware has a purchase agreement to buy Premium Motorsports.
The purchase will give Ware control of Premium’s two charters: #15-Brennan Poole and #27.
Had a quick convo w/Rick Ware:
-He has purchase agreement in place to buy Premium & now is control person of 15 charter
-Had sponsor who prefers 27 so his 52 is now 27
-Bought Premium b/c now he wanted to own 2 charters (27 & 15), other two (51 & 53) are lease/partnership (1/3)..

ORIGINAL POST 5-3-2020: Rumors have popped up recently that Rick Ware is in the process of buying Premium Motorsports from owner Jay Robinson.
Rick Ware Racing is fielding the full-time #51, #52, and #53 cars this year. Premium is fielding the #15 for Brennan Poole full-time.
Unknown is the status of the Spire Motorsports #77 which is currently operated through Premium Motorsports.
Rick Ware declined to comment when I asked him if he is buying Premium. … There was some chatter in the garage about the possibility last weekend but these things typically take a little bit to finalize (and always a chance of it falling through until it is finalized). #nascar https://t.co/1cFnyT5G4O
