  • This was Grala’s first NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Pocono Raceway and second event driving for the newly-formed Fury Race Cars
  • Grala spent a lot of time in the top 10 during the second and third stages of the race, and was scored as high as seventh at multiple points during the 100-lap event
  • The biggest handling challenge for the No. 61 NETTTS team was a tight condition, which escalated throughout the event
  • Pocono Raceway was Grala’s first time running the special Xfinity aero package, which will also be utilized next weekend at Michigan International Speedway
  • This was race two of four currently confirmed races Grala will run for Fury Race Cars

Quote:

"We battled up front a few times today and it was a lot of fun to be up there, but we ultimately just lacked a little raw speed to hold it. We knew this package, at a track like Pocono, would be a little bit of a wild card coming into it, and it seems to be very equipment-dependent, much like the Trucks. We’ve got some ideas on how to be better with this package next weekend at Michigan, so hopefully we will come back much stronger. It still was not a bad day for Fury Race Cars at all, and it is a testament to how hard our team has worked in the last few weeks.”
