Trent Goodrow, of Carver, MA. is one of the young drivers this season, racing in the #31MA legend car. “What made me decide to run legends was the challenges that I would face. There are many great drivers in this division and the legend cars are one of the hardest cars to drive. That being said I knew I would learn a lot about car control and be a better driver.”
J&J’S YOLK & Co. is the new sponsor for the Granite State Legends Series. “My favorite thing about running in the YOLK Legends Series is racing at NHMS. The track we run there is completely different then every other track I’ve raced on. The front stretch is completely flat then center of the corner we go up the banking of the big NASCAR track, we run down the banked backstretch into turns 3 and 4 onto a transition back onto the flat. It was definitely one of the hardest tracks to learn.”
