At the 2023 Winter Nationals, Gavin Graham shared stories of crazy wrecks and his racing story. He comes from a racing family with hopes of making it to the top of NASCAR one day. He has a background in Legend Cars who loves to race on dirt and is making the transition to more late model and dirt modified starts this season.
This week we looked into Canadian driver, Owen Mahar. He is a third-generation driver, who often takes the track with his dad at his home track of Scotia Speedway. He races all around North America, attending large events like Winter Nationals and Road Course World Finals. Coming off of a championship in the Maritime League of Legends, Mahar hopes his 2023 season is as successful as last year!
Not looking to rush his way up the ladder, Owen Zacharias wants seat time in more experience in his Bandolero in 2023. In this week’s “In the Pits,” you’ll learn why Owen had to have 42 stitches in his hand, who he thinks will have beef in the NASCAR Cup Series this season, and what he likes to race when he is on iRacing!
“In the Pits” sat down with Heather Hadley, who finished 3rd in the 2022 INEX Semi-Pro Road Course Championship and recipient of the Women’s Initiative Scholarship. She’ll continue to race Legend Cars on road courses in 2023, but will focus on her new drive in the Mazda MX-5 Cup this season. And spoiler alert, it’s not NASCAR she has her eyes on!
The week on “In the Pits” stars Phoenyx Kimball, an eager young driver who just made the Jump from Bandoleros to Legend Cars. Her unique paint scheme of green flames on her 88 car distinguishes her presence at the track. Racing alongside her sister, Raven, Kimball is a standout in the motor racing community participating in events such as Women with Drive motorsports conference and NASCAR day at the PNC Arena.
