Tanner Gray (@tannergray5) is a full-time driver in NASCAR this season as he’ll be competing with DGR-Crosley in the Truck Series. Gray is here to discuss the opportunity after getting a taste of stock cars last season having made a move away from a successful NHRA career. What has he been doing to prepare for this season when he doesn’t know what to expect; being a third-generation driver and if trying something else was an option; how long Gray had been thinking of making the change from NHRA to NASCAR even during a championship season; when he first discovered a love for NASCAR. Gray also explains why the adrenaline rushes of NHRA and NASCAR are different; a funny story about reflexes when wondering if they will be better than the competition in NASCAR; looking back on the experience of his first distance race; and what the draw of DGR-Crosley was. How much time with Gray give himself to learn before expecting results? The biggest challenges Gray has ahead of him and his early-season goals. Music created by Tony Monge.
