INDIANAPOLIS – Justin Grant will be back with RAMS Racing for a selection of premier midget events this season, beginning with the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals, Jan. 13-18.
Expected events on Grant’s calendar – made up of roughly 15 races – include the Shamrock Classic at the Southern Illinois Center, Indiana Midget Week in June, the BC39 at The Dirt Track at IMS and the Turkey Night Grand Prix at Ventura (Calif.) Raceway.
Grant will pilot the NOS Energy Drink-backed No. 4a once again as he chases victory lane, as well as his first Chili Bowl Golden Driller next week.
“You’re only as good as the people you surround yourself with, and I’ve been fortunate to surround myself with the best, between RAMS Racing and NOS Energy Drink,” Grant relayed. “To have the full support of a great team and a great partner is huge. Confidence is king in the racing game and I’m confident that with Rick and Jeff’s support, as well as Lauren (Albano) and everyone at NOS Energy Drink, we can continue and further our success in 2020 – starting at the Chili Bowl Nationals.
“I can’t thank Rick Young and Jeff Taylor enough for their continued efforts with this entire team.”
Grant collected a victory last season during Indiana Midget Week, driving to victory with the NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series at Gas City I-69 Speedway in June.
His drive, determination and knowledge of his race cars made Grant an easy choice to retain in the eyes of team owner Rick Young.
“Justin is a gracious young man and we’re proud of the team that we’re building with him,” said Young. “Our goals are to help him toward his goals.”
“Justin is a multi-talented driver with success in many series,” added Rockwell Security’s Jeff Taylor. “As a business owner, I love surrounding myself with four aces in the deck, and Justin is one of those. More importantly, I love the way Justin is off the track. He’s a great husband, a great dad and a great friend. Many people don’t know that he’s not only our driver, but his own crew chief and truck driver as well.”
Grant’s longtime sponsor, NOS Energy Drink, returns to RAMS Racing with him again this season.
“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with RAMS Racing and Justin Grant,” said NOS Energy Drink Marketing Director Lauren Albano. “Justin has been with us since the beginning of our dirt experience and has continued to deliver far beyond expectations. It’s a blast watching him on track and we look forward to the 2020 season kicking off at the Chili Bowl Nationals next week.”
