Kaz Grala recorded a career-best NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) finish Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. In just his seventh series start, the Westborough, Massachusetts driver brought home his third top 10 and a season high seventh-place finish with his GMS Motorsports team at “The Magic Mile.”
“On Saturday we really put together one of our best races of the year,” Grala said. “We’ve had speed all year honestly, we’ve just needed the luck and track position to finish according to our speed. The whole No. 24 GMS Racing crew executed this weekend and gave us a pretty good result. I definitely think there’s more where that came from, especially as I get more used to these trucks.”
If there was ever a track for the 17-year-old driver to put together his strongest run of the year, this was it. For Grala, a Massachusetts native, the track in Loudon, New Hampshire is as close as he gets to home in the big leagues of NASCAR. To be able to shine in front of the hometown crown made his strong run even more special.
