RMS Racing, a team based in Cedar Lake, Indiana, led by former driver Matt Estep, has announced its lineup for the 2021 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals.
As first reported by Walkapedia, Justin Grant, the 2020 USAC Silver Crown Series Champ, will not only join the team In Tulsa, but has confirmed the pairing will compete for the 2021 USAC National Midget Series crown alongside teammate Thomas Meseraull.
Grant won three Friday night preliminary events in a row from 2016-2018, and has two podium Saturday A-main finishes. The past two years, he has competed for Jeff Taylor and Ricky Young at RAMS Racing in Tulsa, and will continue to prepare their cars for the 2021 edition.
Along with Grant, the team added two new additions to their 2021 Tulsa lineup: 2017 USAC National Midget Series Champion Spencer Bayston confirmed to our Chet Christner at the Copper Classic at Arizona Speedway this weekend that he has joined the team to compete for this year’s Golden Driller.
Bayston also will team up with multi-time World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series winner and 2019 A-Main Chili Bowl starter David Gravel.
Excited to work with Rusty Kunz and my teammates should be fun! Thank you to Matt Estep! Bring on chili bowl! https://t.co/0ZRYbGGRt7— David Gravel (@DavidGravel) November 29, 2020
The three new additions will be joined by Brad Sweet and Thomas Meseraull, who have both sat in RMS seats in Tulsa. Meseraull earned his first and second USAC National Midget Series feature wins during the 2020 season while Sweet won back-to-back World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Championships in '20 and '21.
Rusty Kunz, who has won multiple Chili Bowl championships as a car owner will serve as the mechanic and crew chief for three of the cars, while Donnie Gentry will take on the two others.
The super team has a combined 20 Saturday main event starts in the Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Midget Nationals, T-mez has 7 appearances, while Sweet has 5. Grant brings 4 A-main starts and Bayston has 3, while Gravel has 1.
