Gray Motorsports Pro Stock driver Tanner Gray has been able to do a lot of things in his two-year career. He has already surpassed his father’s win record.
Now, the teenager can say that he won the prestigious Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals on Monday at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis, Indiana. He defeated Jeg Coughlin Jr. in the final round.
Gray went 6.641 at 208.42 mph to claim his first U.S. Nationals Wally. Coughlin Jr. went 6.639 at 206.80 mph for the runner-up finish.
“I guess the main thing is that I want to strive to be the best driver that I can be,” Gray stated. “I continue to work and don’t really settle for what I am right now. I think every drivers dream is to win Indy at least once and it’s pretty cool for me to be able to do that.”
Gray has picked up his fifth win of the season. He now has ten career wins.
In prior events, Coughlin Jr. defeated Gray 3-2. However, Gray held a 1-0 advantage in final rounds before this final round at the prestigious Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals.

Gray won by 0.0185 seconds, or approx. six feet.
