NEWS & NOTES:

AUSTIN DYNE ON THE EVENT IN LOUISVILLE

“We are extremely prepared and have had time to catch up with everything since Memphis. I’m just really excited to go racing and battle it up. I feel we should be really strong with the package we have and the track is like a lot of non-permanent tracks we go to.”

AUSTIN DYNE ON HIS FAVORITE PART ABOUT COMPETING IN THE GRC

“The pressure. I love it when I’m in the car not so much when I’m in the trailer though, waiting to get back in the car. To just push flat out every lap in a GRC super car is just so much fun and a special feeling.”

ABOUT AUSTIN DYNE

Dyne, a native of Los Angeles, California, got his start in racing in karting at the age of 15, progressed to the Skip Barber Regional series in 2010 and raced late model stock cars at Irwindale Speedway in 2011. He moved up to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, where he was the Rookie of the Year in 2012, and competed in the East division in 2013. Also in 2013, he made his move to Red Bull Global Rallycross in the GRC Lites class and earned a season-best second place at Bristol. He moved up to Supercar with Barracuda Racing in 2014 then competed for Bryan Herta Rallysport in 2015 where he earned his first podium (Daytona) and first pole (Barbados).  For 2016, he started his own team — AD Racing — and finished a career-high eighth in points as well as added a second car to his team at Phoenix.
