There are times when it is hard to believe Kaz Grala, driver of the No.3 Kiklo's Toyota in the K&N Pro East Series, still has two months to go before he can get his public driver's license from Massachusetts. The law there being one must be 16 years and 6 months to get a license.

Truthfully, it is even harder to believe this young man is only 16 years old. Beyond his ability to drive a race car is his ability to communicate, to answer questions and to present himself in a manner which grabs the mind of whomever is in his presene.

Kaz Grala digs deep when he drives a race car and as equally deep when he is posed with questions.

Grala could easily be a NASCAR Sprint Cup driver, and will certainly be, if he just happened to be 18 years old. Grala is blessed to not just have the ability to drive a race car. He communicates in a stellar manner and will be an absolute dream for any sponsor looking for an athlete capable of...

INDIANAPOLIS – Five-time Brickyard 400 winner and four-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jeff Gordon will drive a Corvette Z06 pace car for the 99th running of the Indianapolis 500 mile race, May 24 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

It is the 13th time a Corvette has served as the official pace car, dating to 1978, and the 26th time a Chevrolet has led the pack for “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.” Corvette has served as the pace car more than any other vehicle in the race’s history.

Gordon, who grew up in nearby Pittsboro, Ind., is no stranger to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. In 1994 he won the inaugural Brickyard 400 – the first-ever NASCAR race at the Brickyard, and has visited the winner’s circle there four more times. That makes him one of only two five-time winners at Indy in any series. Michael Schumacher won five...
