  • This was Kaz Grala’s first NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Chicagoland Speedway
  • Grala reported smoke in the cockpit immediately before taking the green flag
  • The No. 61 Ford Mustang lost power in Turn 3 of the first lap due to an electrical issue, forcing Grala to retire to the garage
  • Fury Race Cars was not originally scheduled to compete at Chicagoland Speedway, but was able to due to support from ITC Coalition and Kiklos Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil

“An electrical issue on lap one ended our day before it even got started.  Our Fury guys work so hard, and this was a really tough weekend, but I am so thankful to IT Coalition and Kiklos for coming on board and allowing us to give it a shot. We are still working on sponsorship to continue racing, so hopefully we will be back to redeem ourselves soon.”
