–16 year old driver grabs Legends Car podium finishes in time off from Super Late Model duties—

(Denver, NC) April 4, 2018: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Rising young driver Gracie Trotter knows one of her chief goals in 2018 is to race. A lot. Wherever and whenever she can. Toward that end, Gracie is driving her #11 Calico Coatings Legends Car as often as possible.
In three feature starts in March on the quarter-mile oval at Concord (NC) Speedway, she notched 2nd, 3rd, and 6th place finishes. “I found speed in the 11 car early in March,” Gracie noted. “I won the pole for the March 10th event at Concord, which was an Open race, combining the Semi-Pro, Pro, and Masters classes. I didn’t communicate with my crew chief as well as I should have…he made a change in the car and it didn’t work out the way I wanted. But I still finished 3rd, which made it a good day.”
Gracie’s Legends machine is tuned by Joe Ryan Osborne, of Joe Ryan Race Cars, one of the best in the business. But Gracie knows it takes a team effort to win races, especially in the very tough Legends category. “What we learned is, we really need to work on our communication skills. We both made some mistakes. We’ll be better next time out!”
Gracie plans to return to Legends action in mid-April at Anderson (SC) Speedway to get more quality seat time before strapping back in to her #2 TRD/Calico Coatings Toyota Camry Super Late Model in CARS Tour action at Orange County (NC) Speedway.
Meantime, the high school junior is preparing for the college ACT test, doing a lot of sim racing, and working hard on her conditioning. Lots of racing laps are in her immediate future, and she’s doing her best to be ready.
