Reflecting on his aspirations, Gragson mentioned, “Winning at the Cup level has been my goal since my early days in racing. Joining a seasoned team like Stewart-Haas is a dream come true. I’m focused on making the most out of this opportunity.”

Teamed up with crew chief Drew Blickensderfer, Gragson will mark his debut in the No. 10 Ford Mustang at the non-points Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum on Feb. 4 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
