Gustin, 32, will pilot the Todd Cooney Racing #19r Alan’s Seamless Gutters/ May Properties/ Longhorn Chassis by Wells/ Jay Dickens Racing Engine Super Late Model next year, chasing the World of Outlaws title for his fourth consecutive year.
He’s currently collected three wins, 13 top fives and 23 top 10s during the 2023 World of Outlaws season, and has five World of Outlaws victories overall.
“We’ve been fortunate that Todd (Cooney) has stepped up his program for next season,” Gustin said. “We will change to Longhorn Chassis by Wells Motorsports cars, but I want to thank Mark Richards (owner of Rocket Chassis) for all the help and advice he has given us as we have traveled up and down the road with their team for the past three years.
“With the transition to Longhorn Chassis for next season, we’re gonna have good preparation, more help, so we are gonna need to get going and prove to our sponsors and people that this change is going to be well worth it.”
Cooney, who joined the World of Outlaws for his rookie season this year, is already looking ahead to next year with his fellow Iowan.
“We’re really excited and our families have known each other for a while now and to have Ryan as a team driver for us is something I have looked forward to ever since I spoke to Ryan about this opportunity,” said Cooney, of Des Moines, IA. “I am really excited to get this season over with so we can begin to start building our new cars for next season.”
Cooney will also return to the World of Outlaws full-time tour next year. He’s currently scored one top-10 finish – a 10th-place finish at Boone Speedway in August. Gustin and Cooney will have three more chances to build upon their 2023 season during the World of Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte, Nov. 1-4. It’ll be Cooney’s debut at the track, and in six starts, Gustin has a career-best finish of 14th at the 4/10-mile facility.
