MOORESVILLE, NC - December 22, 2021 – GavTris Motorsports is joined by Motorsport Games Inc. (NASDAQ: MSGM) (“Motorsport Games”) as Gavan Boschele announces his participation in the Chili Bowl Nationals, taking place January 10-15, 2022, making the 13-year-old racing prodigy one of the youngest drivers ever to compete in the event. The popular video game company will feature the NASCAR 21: Ignition and NASCAR Heat titles branding across Gavan’s race attire and his race cars in the Chili Bowl and throughout the 2022 season, starting with the 37th Annual Tulsa Shootout.
In just nine years of competition, Gavan Boschele has earned 24 championships and 343 wins, racing across multiple motorsports series and disciplines. As a development driver for Kevin Swindell, Keith Kunz Motorsports and Toyota Racing, Gavan has recently improved at a staggeringly quick pace coming from outlaw karts, quarter midgets and sprint karts then moving onto the 600 Micros in 2020 and the POWRI national midgets in 2021. Boschele is the youngest National driver on Team DRYDENE and is coming off a career defining year after becoming one of the youngest drivers ever to win a POWRI National midget race.
The collaborative partnership includes primary and associate multi-brand positioning across all team and driver assets in competition, plus year-round activation of digital and social platforms, esports and experiential family- style hospitality.
“Gavan is an incredibly talented rising star in the racing industry and one of the most accomplished junior racers today,” said George Holmquist, VP of Marketing & Publishing at Motorsport Games. “We at Motorsport Games are proud to support him and look forward to seeing his journey unfold through this upcoming year. Entering into a collaborative partnership with Gavan made sense on many levels, as his family and team share our same core values. They have a tremendous passion for the sport, are hard-working no matter the challenges presented and are continuously devoted to being the very best they can be, all aspirations we strive for at Motorsport Games with our business and games.”
“I’m so excited to have Motorsport Games, thru the NASCAR 21: Ignition and NASCAR Heat brands support me in my journey to the top ranks of motorsports,” said Boschele. “The NASCAR 21: Ignition game is so much fun and makes me feel like I’m in the car. I played it right before it was launched and was immediately hooked, and I think many players my age will love it as well. The graphics make the game look great and it feels realistic. I’ve played NASCAR Heat since I was younger and now that it’s on Nintendo Switch, I’m playing it on the go and enjoying it more than ever.”
Team Owner, Kris Boschele, echoed his son’s passion, “Receiving this level of support for Gavan and the team means so much to all of us. It’s so great to watch Gavan and his younger brother Tristan play these popular console and handheld racing games, and to now have them join us as partners is very special. The multi-brand partnership makes a powerful statement about their enthusiasm for Gavan, our program and their overall support ofgrassroots racing. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the unwavering commitment from our friends at Motorsport Games and for that we are humbled, grateful and incredibly determined to win on their behalf.”
