#113 – Marty Gaunt on the Racing Writer’s Podcast

Marty Gaunt has been involved in NASCAR for over 20 years and he’s here to share some stories from his journey around the garage and starting Gaunt Brothers Racing. Like most boys who grow up in Canada, Gaunt took to hockey from an early age before his brother helped him find a love for racing; he explains the chance he took moving to the United States in the late ‘90s; getting his start in NASCAR with Kranefuss-Haas Racing (with drivers like Robby Gordon, John Andretti and Jeremy Mayfield), and learning from Kranefuss and eventually Roger Penske; why he stepped away from the team side for a bit with Triad Racing and Toyota; the unique start to Gaunt Brothers Racing and what stands out a few years into team ownership; if Gaunt’s able to tell what the setback was for the team missing the Daytona 500; the patience he has versus Daniel Suarez when it comes to progress; what he hopes is in the future for GBR. Music created by Tony Monge.
