– Noah Gragson will make his first career NXS start at Atlanta Motor Speedway this weekend.
– In two previous starts in the Truck Series at Atlanta, Gragson has recorded a best finish of second after leading 43 laps in February 2018.
– In 18 career starts at 1.5-mile tracks in the Truck Series, Gragson earned one win (Kansas 2018), four top fives and 12 top 10s.
– The 20-year-old native of Las Vegas currently ranks 11th in the championship standings following an 11th-place finish last weekend at Daytona.
“I’m definitely ready to get to Atlanta this weekend with our Switch Chevrolet. We tested there back in January and I feel that Dave (Elenz, crew chief) and I learned a lot and have a really solid game plan heading into the weekend. If we execute and do all that we can throughout the course of the race I am really confident that we can come home with a really strong run for everyone at JR Motorsports.”
