Gragson has raced full time in the K&N East and West series this year finishing 5th in the East standings and 3rd in the West division while racking up two victories in each series. All of Gragson’s victories in 2016 have come on very challenging road courses that have helped to bring attention to the amount of talent that this very young driver possesses. He has earned a total of six career victories in the K&N series over the last two years along with Rockie of the Year honors in 2015. In addition to pulling double duty in the K&N series, Gragson also made three appearances in the Arca racing series for Venturini Motorsports.

“It’s hard to believe that about four years ago I toured Kyle Busch Motorsports as a young fan and aspiring driver in awe of the massive trophy collection, how immaculate the shop was and getting the chance to meet Darrell Wallace Jr. – now just a short time later I’m going to be competing for them full time in the Camping World Truck series, “Gragson said. “The last few years KBM has developed some of the best young talent in all of NASCAR and I know that I’m going to be stepping into fast Toyota Tundras that are capable of running up front, competing for wins and that if I’m able to do my part that I’ll be able to add to the trophy cases I gazed into not long ago. As an up-and-coming driver that is all I can ask for as I try to continue my climb up the racing ladder with the ultimate goal of one day following in Kyle’s path from Las Vegas to the Cup Series.”
