Beard Motorsport has decided to call on Noah Gragson to try to fight for the Dayton 500. Previously, Gragson was unlucky because he had an accident in the qualifiers. This time he could have more luck, and he is certainly more motivated and ready than in February Beard Motorsport will do their best to achieve what they envisioned, and it seems that just like Gragson they are maximally motivated for it.
“To say that we can’t wait to get back to Daytona is a massive understatement,” said Amie Beard, executive vice president of Beard Motorsports, as quoted by motorsport “From the moment my father founded this race team, we all took a tremendous amount of pride in showing up and performing right alongside the established teams in the sport.
“Last year didn’t go the way we wanted, but that’s just made us more motivated to return”.
Gragson was happy after he got the chance and believes this team can finish the job they failed the previous time.
Obviously, the team has the quality and everything it takes, now it’s all up to Gragson “I’m so happy to have this opportunity to return to Daytona with Beard Motorsports,” he said. “It was good to get a taste of Cup racing in last year’s Duel, but it left us all wanting more.
We’ve got some unfinished business down there. “Beard Motorsports has proven that it can run with the big teams there at Daytona, and I’m just really looking forward to getting another crack at it. We know we have to race our way into the Daytona 500, and I’m very appreciative of the faith the Beard Family has in me”.
Brendan Gaughan, vice president of racing operations, is also happy about the opportunity Gragson has and believes he can help them succeed in their intentions. Gragson is a promising driver, who has the skills, mentality, and everything needed for a good result.
This time he will have to do his best to help the team. “All of us look forward to having Brendan up on the pit box with us,” said team owner Linda Beard. “He has been with us since the beginning and become a part of our family.
His personality and his relationships in this sport are essential to our race team. “In a season where seemingly everything is new, his presence provides stability. It’s great to have him next to me as we continue this journey”.
