Nascar's Youngest Driver Posts Twin Top-Five Finishes In K&N Road Course Races

Nascar's Youngest Driver Posts Twin Top-Five Finishes In K&N Road Course Races

15-year-old Kaz Grala succeeded his career-best fourth-place finish at Watkins Glen International Raceway (NY) with another top-five finish at Virginia International Raceway (VA). For most K&N Pro Series drivers, whose experience is primarily on oval tracks, the road course portion of the schedule is daunting. But for Grala, it proved to be the highlight of the season thus far.

“Since the beginning of the season our Turner Scott Motorsports team has worked really hard to get this No. 31 OzLINK Chevrolet ready for each race, but the road courses were a whole new challenge for us,” said Grala. “On most race weekends I’m seeing the track for the first time, but in this case, I was learning the track and a different style of racing as well. While I’ve had some experience on road courses in the past, these were my first road races in a stock car.”

At Virginia International Raceway, Grala started 12th, but steadily gained positions and settled into the top-five. However, on a late-race restart, chaos broke out and the No. 31 machine sustained damage, forcing the young driver to the pits for repairs.

“Getting that damage was really tough for us but the team never faltered,” Grala explained. “As always they rose to the challenge and got me back on track without losing a lap. After restarting 14th, we were able to charge through the field to take the checkered flag in fifth.”

The top-five finish was the third so far this season and the sixth consecutive top-10 finish for Grala.

Next up for the Boston-native and the No. 31 OzLINK Chevrolet is the penultimate race this season for the NASCAR K&N Pro Series at the tight corners of Greenville-Pickens Speedway (SC) on Saturday, September 6th.
