– Las Vegas native Noah Gragson will make his first career NXS start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend.
– In three previous starts in the NASCAR Truck Series at Las Vegas, Gragson has an overall average start of 6.3 with one pole position and 57 laps led.
– In 20 career starts at 1.5-mile tracks in the Truck Series, Gragson earned one win (Kansas 2018), five top fives and 13 top 10s.
– This weekend also marks a homecoming for primary partner Switch, headquartered just 14 miles from LVMS. Switch is a technology infrastructure corporation built on the intelligent and sustainable growth of the internet.
“I’m really excited to get to my home track of Las Vegas this weekend. It’s great to be racing in front of my hometown and to have a lot of friends and family in attendance. It really makes for a special weekend. Plus, it’s also the home track for Switch, which makes this weekend even more of a homecoming. We tested here a couple of weeks ago and I felt really comfortable with our JR Motorsports Chevrolet so I am really looking forward to seeing what we can do once we unload Friday.”
