COLUMBUS, Ind. – Keith Kunz/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports has welcomed yet another young driver into the ranks of its midget team for the 2020 season.

Brenham Crouch, from Lubbock, Texas, will contest a part-time schedule of midget races for the Toyota-powered team, starting April 3 at Jacksonville (Ill.) Speedway.

Crouch, 14, is a micro sprint graduate and will compete primarily on the local level this season, while also testing his skills in selected Lucas Oil POWRi National Midget League shows.

He’ll also run a handful of NOS Energy Drink USAC National Midget Series events late in the season, once he crosses his 15th birthday, before embarking full time with KKM in 2021.

“I’m really looking forward to getting Brenham behind the wheel and seeing what he can do for us,” said team owner Keith Kunz. “I had the chance to watch him race at the Tulsa Shootout back in January, and he impressed me right away. Our goal right now is just getting him comfortable in the midget as his development begins.”

Following his KKM debut at Jacksonville, Crouch will tackle the summer swing with POWRi, including races in Missouri, Kansas and Illinois. His USAC foray will begin Oct. 9-10 with a doubleheader at Illinois’ Wayne County Speedway and Indiana’s Tri State Speedway.

The Jason Leffler Memorial at Wayne County will mark one of the biggest short-track events the young Crouch has competed in during his racing career so far.
