At Stewart-Haas, Gragson, who parted ways with LMC on August 10, steps into the shoes of the retired Aric Almirola.

Sharing his excitement about the opportunity, Gragson said, “I’m thankful for this chance with Stewart-Haas Racing. While many are winding down for the offseason, I’m eager to kickstart 2024 and hit the track at the earliest. Stewart-Haas embodies a true racing spirit, evident the moment I stepped into the shop. The bar is set high here, with a strong aspiration for competition and victories. I hold myself to high standards and aim to deliver for Tony, Gene, and everyone at Stewart-Haas.

“My focus has always been on winning, a pursuit that began back when I raced Bandoleros as a 13-year-old at the Bullring in Las Vegas. Joining an established team with a winning history is every driver’s dream, and I’ve found just that at Stewart-Haas. My goal is to capitalize on this opportunity.”
