Back in 2023, Gragson struggled with the No. 42 team at Legacy Motor Club, managing only one top-15 finish, this coupled with him being suspended by the team and NASCAR for a social media incident was a nightmare for the driver. However, the 2024 season has been a different story for the 25-year-old driver.

Through the first 11 races of 2024, Gragson has averaged a 17.3 finish position, a vast improvement over his 27.6 average finish during the same stretch in 2023. He has already scored four top-10 finishes, including a career-best third-place result at Talladega Superspeedway. There’s no doubt that top team won’t be looking to recruit him based on this alone.

The announcement for the new driver has come at a crucial time for the rookie and the Front Row Motorsports team as they are aiming to build on their consistent success over the years, particularly at superspeedways and short tracks. They currently hold four Cup Series victories to their name, with two of those wins coming from Michael McDowell, including the 2021 Daytona 500. So if things work out in Gragson’s favor, then this opportunity could be life-changing for the SHR driver!
