Legacy Motor Club ready to roll the dice at LVMS
Two Las Vegans in search of their first NASCAR Cup Series victories have teamed up for their first race together on their hometown track this weekend, and nothing could top a win in Sunday's Pennzoil 400 Presented by Jiffy Lube.
Legacy Motor Club owner and CEO of Allegiant Travel Company Maury Gallagher and his rookie driver Noah Gragson are ready to put their car in Victory Lane and what better place than in front of friends and family.
"Staying local was very important to us, but with a track record like Noah's that just made our decision a lot easier," Gallagher said, "It’s exciting to see Las Vegas growing as a sports capital, but also as a place producing some of the best racers in our sport.”
Gragson brings a lot to the newly renamed team. Along with all his swagger comes a belt full of race wins and top-five finishes. Gragson mentioned that starting his first full-time season as a NASCAR Cup Series driver has been a challenge, but he's been lucky to have a mentor like 2004 NASCAR Champion and fellow Las Vegan Kurt Buschto teach him a lot about the sport, especially a lot about the track they call home.
"Coming back to my hometown is always good to see family and friends," Gragson said. "It's always great anytime I can get back here, and there would be nothing sweeter than to run well at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend."
Fans attending the Pennzoil 400 presented by Jiffy Lube will have a chance to meet Noah on race day from 10:15 a.m.-10:30 a.m. on the stage Q&A in the Neon Garage.
