INDIANAPOLIS – TOPP Motorsports has confirmed that sprint car driver Justin Grant has joined the team to chase the USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series championship.

“We’re excited that this partnership has come together,” said Kevin Birchmeier, owner and president of TOPP Motorsports. “Justin is such a talented driver. With him behind the wheel of our top notch equipment, we know we have a winning combination to keep headed toward our goal of winning the USAC Sprint Championship.”

“I’m so grateful for the opportunity to drive for TOPP Motorsports,” said Grant. “I’m really looking forward to wearing the TOPP name and working with such a talented team. I missed out on the Championship title by one place this past season and I’m confident that together with TOPP, we can get to that top spot.”

Grant is coming off of a stellar season that saw him finish second in USAC AMSOIL National Sprint Car Series standings by a mere six points to Chris Windom while driving for Sam McGee Motorsports. He was recently announced as the winner of the Prosource Fast Time Award Challenge for being the fast qualifier eight different times in 2017.

Additionally, Grant was the only driver in 2017 to start all USAC National point races – Silver Crown, Midgets and Sprints – and was one of only two drivers across all divisions to win features in each division throughout the season. It was recently announced that Grant’s consistency in performance across the three National USAC divisions has earned him the Mike Curb Super License and a $5,000 award.

“We love that Justin is so versatile,” said Birchmeier. “Having a driver that has the experience and track record of winning that Justin does opens a lot of doors for us. I can’t tell you enough how thrilled we are to have him as part of our TOPP family.”

Grant won seven races this year across USAC’s three National divisions, four in a sprint car, two in a midget and one in Silver Crown competition.
