The Lakeville, Ind., native was one of only twelve young drivers chosen in 2010 to compete in the Richard Petty drivers search. Grant proved his ability to be hired by the Richard Petty Driving Experience to gain additional seat time.
He worked at some of the great super speedways like Chicagoland, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Richmond International Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway and Walt Disney World Speedway. In the fall of 2010 Galloway was promoted to the Dodge Motorsports SRT program as a professional driver participating in driving schools all over the country.
“My racing idols have been Richard Petty and Jeff Gordon so I was very blessed to have been chosen to work with he Richard Petty Driving Experience and the Dodge SRT program,” Galloway said. “I was able to run two-seat ride-along programs all over the country, it was a good learning experience for me at such a young age.
“I especially enjoyed working with Dodge on the SRT Driving Experience,” Galloway continued. “When Dodge came out with the Charger police cars, I got to train State Troopers on how to handle the powerful hemi-powered cars.
“I feel it was a lucky break to tryout with Bobby,” said Galloway. “My goal this week is to be safe, stay out of trouble and run as many laps as possible. Things happen quickly at Martinsville so you have to be ready. I want to thank my parents Todd and Deanna and everyone that has helped me get to this point in my career.”
