DAYTONA INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY

No. 61 Kiklos Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil Ford Mustang

 

Kaz Grala will be back behind the wheel of a Fury Race Cars Ford Mustang this week at Daytona International Speedway, which will mark the first time this season that he has previous NASCAR Xfinity Series experience at a track

Grala scored a fourth-place finish in the season-opening NXS race in February

In 2017, the Boston-native started from the pole in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event in Daytona, ultimately earning the checkered flag in his first NASCAR victory

When he crossed the finish line in the Truck Series race, Grala became the youngest winner (18 years, 1 month and 26 days old) in any NASCAR Series at the historic track

Long-time sponsor Kiklos Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is the primary sponsor on the No. 61 Mustang this weekend, was also the paint scheme on Grala’s Daytona-winning truck

Between the two series, Grala has an average finish of 2.5 at Daytona

Marlow’s Tavern, which sponsored Grala at Atlanta Motor Speedway, also returns as a partner this week

“Daytona has been very good to me in the past. The last time I raced there under the lights, we left Victory Lane covered in Gatorade. Even my Xfinity debut ended up being a top five earlier this year at Daytona. Plate races take communication, patience, strategy, and of course, a little luck. We had our dose of bad luck last weekend at Chicago, so we're hoping to put that behind us and turn things in the other direction this weekend. Thanks to Kiklos and Marlow's Tavern, who are both previous supporters of mine, we're going to be chasing that trophy and playoff berth at the World Center of Racing.”
