BeasleyAllen.com racecar driver Grant Enfinger claimed his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory Oct 22 at Talladega Superspeedway. The 31-year-old racer led the most laps of the Fred’s 250, many of which required him to use his mirror to dictate his racing lane at more than 190 mph – a dangerous, but overall successful strategy. Enfinger stayed in front of the pack for 120 of the race’s 250 miles.
As Enfinger’s first sponsor, Beasley Allen helped him move from late model racing to an ARCA Championship to the NASCAR level. He raced at Talladega as part of the GMS Racing team, just edging out teammate Spencer Gallagher to take the checkered flag, and giving GMS its first one-two win at Talladega.
In an interview from Victory Lane after the race, Enfinger noted that he and his father, along with race enthusiasts Greg Allen and Bobby Mozingo from Beasley Allen, began coming to the track as fans. From there, he embarked on racing career spanning two decades to bring him to this win.
Enfinger said, “Getting this win means the world to me. I have worked so hard to get to where I am today and I wouldn’t be here without all of my supporters and the guys that have worked countless hours by my side. Thank you to GMS Racing, Plugfones, Champion Power Equipment, Holmes Excavation II and Beasley Allen Law Firm for giving me this opportunity. Roll Tide!”
Enfinger, a native of Fairhope, Ala., was the first-ever ARCA Racing Series national champion from the State of Alabama. Grant won the title in October 2015 at Kansas Speedway, becoming the 33rd different ARCA national champion in 63 consecutive seasons. Grant led 792 laps over the 2015 season and won the Menards Pole Award presented by Ansell year-end honors. He also won the Hoosier Tire Most Victories award for the 2015 season, in which he won six races including Daytona, Mobile, Nashville, Berlin, Springfield and Salem.
“We are incredibly proud of Grant and this monumental achievement in his career,” Allen, who is Principal & Lead Products Liability lawyer at Beasley Allen, said. “I’ve seen Grant pursue his dreams first-hand and I know he has what it takes to race. No one has worked harder to achieve his level of success. He is as talented as they come.”
