CHRISTIAN MCGHEE SIGNS with NTS MOTORSPORTS for 2016admin
KERNERSVILLE, N.C. (January 12, 2016) – NTS Motorsports has added another young talent to the their driver development program. Seventeen-year-old Christian McGhee will be behind the wheel of an NTS Motorsports Chevrolet in the SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series for 2016.
Claremont, California’s McGhee, started his racing career at age 9 (2007) in Bandoleros at Irwindale Speedway. He then moved up to Legends, then Irwindale Race Trucks and by 2014 he was in a NASCAR Late Model, where he won the NASCAR California State Rookie-of-the-Year title. Christian also made his first SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series start in 2014, where he started on the front row at Irwindale Speedway and led the first 50 laps of the race.
“We saw Christian make a great run at Irwindale in his first series start,” stated NTS Motorsports west coast manager, Gary Collins. “Once we met with Christian and his dad (Loyd), we knew we had a good fit for the team.”
McGhee will be paired with teammate Blaine Rocha, and a third NTS driver that will soon be announced. With this stable of drivers, along with NTS’ technical alliance with Port City Racecars and W.A.R Shocks and Suspension, the 21, 28 and 29 teams should all be in a position to compete for the 2016 title.
In 2015, NTS drivers Greg Voigt, Parker Stephens, and Rocha finished second, third and sixth in the 2015 SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour Series championship.
For 2016, NTS Motorsports will continue to compete with three full-time teams in the SPEARS Southwest Tour Series, in addition to fielding teams in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and the K&N Pro Series.
