ONE OF THE WEST COAST’S MOST PROMISING, UP AND COMING DRIVERS
As a first generation race car driver Gracin Dean Raz began racing quarter midgets at the age of 6 in Portland OR. Today, he is one of the youngest drivers racing the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West and super late models while quickly developing a reputation across the industry as a promising, up and coming driver. During his quarter midget career, Gracin tied up nine event and regional championships and in 2013 he transitioned to a Pro4 late model where he averaged a top five finish. In 2014 Gracin caught the eye of NASCAR K&N Pro Series Crew Chief Jeff Jefferson and was extended the opportunity to race two NASCAR K&N Pro Series West events for Bill McAnally Racing. In Gracin’s first K&N West event he out qualified all rookies and averaged a top 6.5 finish between both events.
Since the age of three, I have known racing is what I am meant to do. As a young driver, I understand the importance of earning the respect of my seasoned competitors and ensuring those that walk with me on my journey are honored – at all times – for their support.”
