NASCAR drivers outside of racing lead a quite normal life. They experience the adversities and challenges of life like every other person. And sometimes, this might lead to them needing some help in their approach to such things. Rajah Caruth, the promising youngster who considers Bubba Wallace, the only driver of color on the NASCAR Grid, as his role model, had some concerns. And guess who was there to help him with his first-world problems?

Caruth has been trying to make waves in the NASCAR community. With admirable performances in the Craftsman Truck Series, he has had some decent outings in the Xfinity Series with Alpha Prime Racing. But his struggles are not just limited to the track. Off of it, he has consulted about it with Legacy Motor Sports driver Noah Gragson.

Every week, The Athletic invites a NASCAR driver to their podcast and asks them 12 questions and the drill remains the same in every episode. The latest driver to join the show’s guest list is Noah Gragson.

With his appearance on the podcast this week, we got to know that using dating apps and being presentable to the opposite gender can be a concern for a NASCAR driver as well. Gragson gave away a piece of information that Rajah Caruth wouldn’t have wanted to go out.

The question was a rather descriptive one as the host Jeff Gluck asked, “I’ve asked readers to give me “Dear Abby” style advice questions and I’m just matching a different one up to each driver. This person said: “I’ve started using dating apps recently, but I feel like my profile is not standing out from the crowd and I haven’t had any success. What can I do? What advice can you give me to help me to be more successful on these apps?”

Surprised at that particular question, Gragson asked, “Was that Rajah (Caruth) who gave you that?”

No, it’s not a driver. It’s a fan who asked,” Gluck replied.

“Oh, it’s not? Rajah asked me the same question. He goes, “Bro, what do I got to do to be successful on these dating apps?” We’ll keep it at that.” Well, Noah may have outed some of Rajah’s secrets.

As for his racing career, he will look to continue improving on the track. With Bubba Wallace consistently helping him shape his career, the guiding light seems to be quite important in his transition to the higher leagues of the sport.

The restaurant chain announced in February before this year’s Daytona 500 that they will be sponsoring the #42 Camaro in the Cup Series. The partnership between them goes back to the fall of 2022 at Talladega, with Beard Motorsports. Speaking about the economic viability of Wendy’s, he added, “Then it’s a cheap first date. You’re going to Wendy’s so you don’t have to spend a lot of money at a steakhouse. You’ve got to think that stuff through.”
