G2G RACING STATEMENT ON SONOMA
In early March of 2022, G2G Racing entered into a driving contract with Travis McCullough to drive the No. 47 at Sonoma Raceway on June 11th. It was understood what the driver and team responsibilities were. The driver was made aware of NASCAR requirements, meeting all medical rules provided by the sport. Including a negative drug screen, prior to the race.
Travis made G2G Racing aware that he waited until the week of the race to take the test. G2G Racing arrived in Sonoma with trucks and team, to learn that the results had not been reported to NASCAR. They (NASCAR) have a very strict policy for Rookie Drivers, that if they do not practice, they will not allow the driver to qualify and race. Travis had not received his results before practice, which forced G2G Racing to withdraw the No. 47 from the event.
“I feel sorry for Travis in this situation. It is very unfortunate, as I was looking forward to working with him at Sonoma” said crew chief Ryan Bell for the No. 47. “Travis has stated to multiple news sources that the truck was not prepared for the race. We, the team, were ready to practice, qualify, and race.”
“As part of this sport, unpredictable situations arise. I wanted to make sure G2G Racing tried to
help the sponsors in attendance that weekend,” Bell added.
“Tim Silva, crew chief of the No. 46 truck, invited the primary and associate sponsors to pit road for the race, in which accepted and had an amazing experience,” Viens stated. “I instructed Silva to get their contact information and we would place them on our trucks at a later date at no additional cost.”
