GTR Simulator joins the No. 27 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Team

LAKE OSWEGO, Oregon (April 9, 2015).

17-year old NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Driver Gracin Raz will head to the legendary Irwindale Speedway this weekend with a new partner at his side – GTR Simulator. After finishing just outside the top three in his first race of the series at the Kern County Speedway in March, Raz has continued to attract partnership opportunities by differentiating the value he and his team can create for an organization.

“We are elated to have the opportunity to partner with Gracin and his No. 27 Team,” said GTR Simulator’s CEO Howard Yang. “From the initial moment we engaged with Gracin’s Director of Partnerships Nathan Durkes, we knew the value of partnering with Gracin Raz Racing was special, particularly at this early stage of Gracin’s journey.”

GTR Simulator, located in Walnut, California, has spent countless hours working with a deep network of professional race car drivers examining detailed traits of their performance to create a real-world driving simulation experience. Today, GTR Simulator is one of the leading simulators on the market with an expanding client base.

Each week we look for opportunities to showcase our partnership value,” said Raz. “At Kern County as an example, we welcomed several executives from our primary partner Trinity Energy to the event. They were able to see the No. 27 Team in action while using the race weekend as a venue for entertainment and team development. I am excited to show how our hard work, on and off track, can support and advance GTR Simulator’s goals.

Fans following Raz will also personally benefit from this partnership by receiving a 20% discount on any GTR Simulator products ordered online. “Each week Gracin’s fan base is growing and we want to ensure people understand how much their support means,” said Durkes. “We are excited to know that each fan has an opportunity to test out some of the awesome products offered by GTR Simulator at a “GDR” discounted rate.”

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series West main event in Irwindale begins at 8:30pm on Saturday, April 11 and will air on NBCSN on Thursday, April 16.

This Friday I will have the honor of supporting the grand opening festivities for the World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville, Oregon! In addition to showcasing very cool cars, the museum will serve as an education facility with two state-of-the-art classrooms and a full-service shop to give students a hands-on experience working on race cars. You can learn more about the World of Speed on their website; hope to see some of you there on Friday!!

We had to pack up and head home early today after having un-fixable rear end problems in the first practice of the day. Definitely not the way we were hoping this weekend would have gone but the good news is I was able to get some good, fast laps in yesterday's practice and we will come back strong next time!

I would like to thank Team GDR for all their efforts this weekend; the guys gave me a bad fast car and I'm bummed I couldn't showcase it tonight.
