After having Grant Enfinger behind the wheel for the first two races of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season, a new face will be piloting the No. 33 Chevrolet for GMS Racing this weekend at Martinsville.
Enter 17-year old Kaz Grala from Westborough, Mass., who will be making his first start in a NASCAR national series race in Saturday’s Alpha Energy Solutions 250 on the treacherous half-mile in southern Virginia.
“I am looking forward to my NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut with GMS Racing at Martinsville. The No. 33 team has run really well so far this year and I believe they will supply me with the best equipment possible. I am going to try and put myself in the best position possible and hope to bring home a solid run for myself and GMS Racing,” Grala said.
While Grala may be a fresh face in the three NASCAR national series, the youngster still has some seat time under his belt in the K&N Pro Series East and Pro Series West over the last two seasons, as well as some races in the CARS Super Late Model Tour.
Of the three series, Grala has raced the most and done the best in the Pro Series East, scoring nine top-five finishes, 21 top-10 finishes, 24 laps led, and an average finish of 9.8 in his 33 starts.
