G2G RACING MEDIA NOTES: MIAMI
HOUSTON, TEXAS (October 23rd, 2022) – Fanttik, the young and fast-growing automotive accessories
brand, and NASCAR today announce their partnership for the NASCAR Camping World Truck
Series. Fanttik is the exclusive sponsor for truck #46 and driver Brennan Poole in the race series,
kicking off October 22nd at Homestead Miami Speedway.
“So excited to kick off our partnership with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to sponsor
this amazing team and driver,” says Du Bo, Vice President at Fanttik. “The Camping World Truck
series is an exciting, adrenaline-packed racing series that aligns perfectly with our line of
automotive adventure products. And we look forward to seeing Brennan Poole in the winner’s
“We are revved up about this partnership,” says Tim Viens, owner of G2G Racing Team. “Always
be faster and full of power, that’s what we aim to be. Driving experience is important for every
single driver, and Fanttik accessory is the solution. Actually I have heard about Fanttik few
months ago, their products were recommended by lots of drivers on Instagram and YouTube.
Many friends of mine are using their inflator.”
Fanttik collected some most popular questions from audiences and had a short interview
Fanttik: What are some tips for regular Drivers for better car control?
Brennan: I think you need to get dirt racing experience. Most of the best drivers have raced in
some sort of dirt racing series. That experience helps you find the limits of a car as well as the
ability to move around the race track and find speed.
Fanttik: What are your tips on braking, accelerating and turning?
Brennan: There is an art to breaking and accelerating. Being able to use them together in a way
that creates speed on the track is something that's learned over time. The biggest tip I would
say is to be smooth on the controls. When you think you are smooth enough, get smoother.
Fanttik: Which Racing schools or instructors would you recommend for beginners wanting to
build a career in this sport?
Brennan: There really aren't any racing schools that teach you how to race ovals. It's a very
difficult sport to become a professional. My advice would be to get into a car at a local short
track that is an oval and start gaining experience. I have done some road racing schools and my
favorite has been Ron Fellows' school. Its out in Nevada but I learned a lot from him about road
Fanttik: What tips or techniques make you a better race driver?
Brennan: The sport is very much about the mental game. I worked hard on this as I was coming
up through the ranks. I think that's the most important part of being a good racecar driver.
There are also all the little things like taking notes and watching film. I spend a lot of time on a
simulator practicing before race weekends. The sport is also very physically demanding and you
have to train like a marathon athlete. I spend a lot of time during the week on my road bike. In
the racecar your heart rate is on average above 150 for the duration of the race. Its 130 degrees
Fahrenheit inside the car. It's not easy to be in those conditions for several hours at a time.
Mental game, Preparedness, and being physically fit.
Fanttik: Thank you Brennan, that would be really helpful for auto racing lovers!

POST-RACE REPORT: KANSAS 2
Kansas City, Kansas (September 12, 2022) - Brennan Poole and his G2G Racing team was looking for a good weekend, to break the team’s stretch of bad luck. He was able to do just that, in Friday Night’s Kansas Lottery 200.
In practice, Poole ran ten laps, with a fast lap of 32.486 seconds. This was the 32nd fastest time in the session. After coming off the track, the team went to work, improving the track for the upcoming qualifying session.
In qualifying, Poole picked up his pace, running a qualifying lap of 32.322 seconds, which put him on the provisional pole. As the session continued, the team began to worry that Poole’s time would not be good enough to make the 36-truck field. As some of the slower trucks began to qualify, they were unable to best Poole’s time, locking him into the field.
The team began scrambling to make the needed adjustments to the truck for the evening’s race, as the conditions looked to be much different as night time began to set in.
After pre-race festivities and the command to start engines had concluded, Poole and the team felt confident that they could work their way towards the front.
As the green flag waved, Poole methodically began to make his way to the front. By the end of Stage 1, Poole had made his way up to 28th, just behind the position for the Lucky Dog.
He then brought his truck down pit road, as the team went to work to make adjustments. In the flurry of changes, one member of the pit crew jumped over the wall too early, forcing Poole to restart the race at the back of the pack. Poole once again settled in and began to move his way forward.
He worked his way back up to 29th, before a caution slowed his pace, once again placing him one spot behind the Lucky Dog position. Shortly after, Stage 2 came to an end. Poole once again brought the truck down pit road for service, as the team went to work, making adjustments to his No. 46 Macc Door Systems Tundra.
Before the race went back to green for the final stage, crew chief, Tim Sliva, came across the radio, to help motivate Poole for the final stint of the race. Poole replied over the radio saying, “I'll give it my best like I always do.”
At the drop of the green flag, Poole once again made his way through the field. He has placed himself on a strategy in attempt to finish inside the Top-10, but taking a gamble on fuel mileage.
As the strategy began to play out, and some of the leaders came down pit road for service, he began to pass some of the series’ biggest names, moving him inside the Top-15 with only a handful of laps remaining. Then, with five laps left in the race, while Poole was preparing to challenge for the 13th position, the truck shut off, and he quickly brought it down pit road.
After a quick investigation and repair, the team sent him back out. Unfortunately, he lost 3 laps on pit road, causing him to free fall to the 34th position, where he stayed for the final laps of the race.
G2G Racing will look to build on the positive of Poole’s run, as the team heads to the Last Great Colosseum, the Bristol Motor Speedway. A rare Thursday Evening event will be on-tap, as the series will start the second round of the playoffs. The racing action is slated to start at 9:00pm Eastern, with coverage on Fox Sports 1, and SiriusXM NASCAR, Channel 90.

POST-RACE REPORT: MID-OHIO
Lexington, Ohio (July 11, 2022) - The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series returned to left and right turns on Saturday afternoon, for the O’Reilly Auto Parts 150 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. G2G Racing, coming off an up and down performance at Nashville, looked for a strong run out of the team’s road course ringer, Mason Filippi. But the weekend started slightly moist.
In practice, Filippi appeared to be behind the 8-ball in his No. 46 OpenFender.com Toyota Tundra, as the truck experienced engine issues at the beginning of the session. Filippi was able to record a lap of 99.573 seconds. Then, the rain came.
Due to NASCAR’s rules on rain racing, the team went to work converting the truck over for wet track conditions. While doing that, they were able to rectify the issue from practice, feeling confident for qualifying.
In qualifying, Filippi used his road racing experience to record a wet lap of 127.614 seconds. After that lap, he found himself with the 3rd fastest time of his group. As the session progressed, until some of the leaders had a chance to make some laps, bumping him down the leaderboard. As the session came to a close, he was 11th out of his group. This placed him in the 24th starting position for the next day’s race.
His starting position gave the team its best starting position of the 2022 campaign.
The next day, conditions were dry, as the weather had moved out of the area. This changed the game for many drivers, including Filippi. At the drop of the green flag, he fell back, to get a better handle on his truck. Then, his day went sour.
On lap 9, his No. 46 Tundra came to a stop on-track, reporting the engine had cut off. Then, right as race control issued a full course caution, he was able to refire his truck and drive it to the crew. Unfortunately, the team was unable to fix the issue, forcing the team to drop out of the race. It was recorded as a 36th place finish.
The team will regroup and head to the Pocono Raceway for the CRC Brakleen 150 on July 23rd. The race will be televised live on Fox Sports 1, while the action will be broadcasted on SiriusXM NASCAR, Channel 90.
