"I have pulled in all my resources and money for this. All the pieces of the puzzle are there and now it’s a matter of execution."— Juan Pitta
Coming off a very successful late model campaign at the All American Speedway Juan finished the season off with a win and three consecutive top two finishes, Pitta looks to bring that momentum into the K&N Series.
"I'm very grateful for the opportunity that the Gomez family have given me. It's a one race deal so we are looking to have a impressive finish and attract attention from other teams. I'm looking to move up next year. I have stayed hungry and the hard work has been paying off."
Pitta who is a former "Drive for Diversity" driver has assembled members from his own team lead by experienced crew chief Roger Bracken.
"I have pulled in all my resources and money for this. All the pieces of the puzzle are there and now it’s a matter of execution" said Pitta. "Roger has put in a ton of effort into the program and the chemistry is great, I'm learning a lot from him."
Juan wants to also thank Jim and Patti Offenbach and Richard Childress at GGRT/RCR for the use of their number. Several teams have helped Juan make this dream possible. Big thanks to Craig Raudman and his team for putting the car together.
