Kaz Grala Out at JGL Racing

It appears that JGL Racing’s No. 24 Ford Mustang will have a new driver behind the wheel for the foreseeable future.

Kaz Grala, who was announced as the full-time driver of the car prior to the 2018 season, announced that he is now out of a ride with the team.

Grala broke the news Tuesday evening on Twitter.

In 10 career XFINITY Series starts (all with JGL Racing), the 20-year-old from Boston, Massachusetts has one top-five finish, coming at the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway. His last five finishes were 26th, 38th, 30th, 20th and 37th.

Grala also has one Camping World Truck Series victory coming in 2017 at Daytona in 32 starts spanning two seasons. He has two NASCAR Pinty’s Series starts, two K&N Pro Series West starts, 38 K&N Pro East starts (12 top five finishes), two ARCA Racing Series starts, five CARS Tour starts and two IMSA starts.

JGL Racing did not immediately confirm the news, but NBC Sports reported that the ride was being shut down for the foreseeable future due to a lack of funding.

The team also hinted at some potential changes with an earlier tweet on Tuesday morning.

The organization fields another full-time entry in the XFINITY Series, driven primarly by Dylan Lupton (No. 28) The next event on the NXS schedule will be the Alsco 300 on Saturday, May 26 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
