In 2017, Grala picked up his first career win in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series at Daytona International Speedway. Grala’s win made him the youngest Daytona winner in history at 18 years of age. Grala also became the youngest driver to compete in the ISMA Weathertech SportsCar Championship at the age of 17.
Throughout his career in NASCAR’s top-three series’, Grala has recorded one career win, seven top-5’s, nineteen top-10’s and one pole award to his credit. Grala joins Tyler Reddick as one of the new drivers in the Richard Childress Racing stable.
