NASCAR K&N West point leader Gragson set for ARCA debut with Mason Mitchell Motorsports at Kentucky

(SPARTA, Kentucky – Sept. 23, 2015) – NASCAR K&N Pro Series West points leader Noah Gragson will make his ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards debut Friday in the Crosley Brands 150 at the Kentucky Speedway. Gragson will drive for Mason Mitchell Motorsports in the No. 78 Alert ID Ford Fusion.

Gragson is coming off of his second win of the 2015 season in the Pro Series West at the Meridian Speedway where he led 176 of the events 208 laps. Gragson earned his first career win this year earlier at the Tucson Speedway.

The 17-year old from Las Vegas, Nevada participated in the open test session at the Kentucky Speedway Tuesday, gaining approval to race at the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway track.

“This year has been a big change for me,” Gragson stated. “I started racing stock cars this year so I've had to adapt to the bigger cars and to the different tracks. After winning two NASCAR K&N Pro Series races so far this year, I know how important team work is.

“Having the opportunity to be making my ARCA debut with a championship-winning team like Mason Mitchell Motorsports is a very humbling feeling. Knowing that I am in good equipment is a huge confidence boost for me. My ultimate goal this weekend is to learn as much as possible on and off the racetrack.”

Mason Mitchell Motorsports has two ARCA wins during the 2015 season at Winchester and the Iowa Speedway.  Last year at the Kentucky Speedway MMM finished third with driver/owner Mason Mitchell. Gragson will be in that same car Friday in the Crosley Brands 150.

The race will be live on Fox Sports 1 beginning at 8:00 p.m. EST.  ARCA will also provide live timing and scoring for all on-track activity presented by AM Technical Solutions and Pirate Energy at arcaracing.com.

I like this guy. Put him in any stock car--including either NASCAR or ARCA--and he'll dominate in it.
