Grant competed at the Toledo Speedway in Ohio last month and had a good run, finishing fifth. This was the season finale for the ARCA Series, with Grant ending the season fourth in points. Before heading to Ohio, Grant stopped off at Charlotte Motor Speedway to announce that he will move up to NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series next year. He will be driving the No. 93 Chevy for Sinica Motorsports. Grant says this is “definitely a dream come true” and is something he has been working for all of his life. Grant will become the first Alabama driver to race regularly in the Cup Series since 2002, when Hut Stricklin of Calera and Steve Grissom of Gadsden were still racing.
Sinica is owned by George Sinica, a native of Argentina, and will run a partial schedule of ten to 15 Cup races in 2012 as well as a few Cup races later this year. The team gets its cars from Richard Childress Racing. This is a tremendous opportunity for Grant. After Grant left Toledo, he raced a NASCAR truck at Talladega, posting a 12th place finish at the world’s fastest speedway. He will spend the rest of the year testing Sinica Cup cars in preparation for the 2012 season.
Grant drove the Beasley Allen car for several years and we all knew that he would eventually get a break and would go up to NASCAR. He did a great job for us. Grant has 13 top ten finishes and one pole in 18 ARCA races this season with a best finish of second at the season’s first race at Toledo. He has an average finish of 8.9. We wish Grant the very best as he moves into the NASCAR ranks.
