Rising Racer On Doorstep of Major Career Move-

 

(Denver, NC) October 18, 2018 (for immediate release):

Rookie Super Late Model driver Gracie Trotter has been invited to try out for NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Development Program, at the combine being held on October 22-23 at Bethune-Cookman University and New Smyrna (Florida) Speedway. With NASCAR stars like Kyle Larson, Daniel Suarez, and Bubba Wallace having advanced via the Drive for Diversity, Gracie feels honored to now get her chance. “I’m really excited about this opportunity, I’m looking forward to it all,” she said.

Promising female and ethnically diverse drivers are given an opportunity to showcase their skills at the combine, with the potential of being chosen for the 2019 Drive for Diversity Driver Development class. The program is a partnership with Rev Racing, with the chosen drivers receiving a full season in NASCAR K&N Pro Series East, NASCAR Whelen All-American Series, and US Legend Cars International, including equipment, mentoring, and competition experience.

Gracie is one of three female candidates, among a dozen aspiring racers at this year’s NASCAR Combine.   She’ll be evaluated not only on her on-track skills, but also her physical fitness, and marketing and media savvy. Gracie, a self-described exercise junkie, is eagerly anticipating the fitness assessment.  “I love fitness so I’m excited that they are doing that; I can also get a good workout in while I’m away! Fitness is a big part of my weekly routine, so I feel confident about the physical fitness evaluation portion of the combine.” All season long she’s been spending time each week working with a specialized trainer, making sure she’s in the best possible condition to endure the rigors of high-speed competition.

Currently  6th in PASS South Super Late Model points, Gracie’s next turn in her #2 TRD/Calico Coatings Camry will come  November 10 at the PASS Tour’s 2018 finale, the Mason-Dixon Meltdown at Hickory (NC) Motor Speedway. Beyond this final start of her rookie season, Gracie is focusing on what looks to be a promising future.  The opportunity to participate in the Drive for Diversity Development Program would be a perfect next step. “I feel like I’ve really learned a lot this year, and I’ll take that into next year and be even better. I have a lot of confidence in that.”
