FURY Race Cars and Superstar Racing Experience have expanded their relationship that will see FURY oversee the maintenance and preparation of SRX’s equally designed race cars. Led by Darius Grala, FURY’s facility in Mooresville will be a central part of SRX’s offseason preparation, and FURY will deploy staff on the road to aid in the maintenance and preparation of the SRX fleet.
Since January, FURY has been assisting with the plan to prepare the race cars for SRX’s competition this summer.
SRX CEO, Don Hawk and FURY owner, Darius Grala negotiated the deal including the staffing of FURY with SRX employees from the 2021 season, and the addition of other team members both at FURY and SRX. FURY’s efforts will also be led by Tony Eury Jr. (former Dale Earnhardt Incorporated [DEI] & Dale Jr. Crew Chief) and Jeff Fultz (National Late Model Champion) who were involved in the development of the original chassis for the SRX cars.
“It seemed very fitting to negotiate a deal with Darius and have the cars prepared for the 2022 season by the FURY team that designed the original chassis raced by SRX. We couldn’t be more excited to expand the relationship with our friends at FURY,” said Don Hawk, CEO of SRX.
“We are very happy about the agreement that Hawk and I landed on for both FURY and SRX, preparing race cars is what we do so it’s only fitting to have this type of a deal with SRX for 2022 and beyond. We are excited to play a larger role with SRX and look forward to another successful season,” said Darius Grala, Co-Owner of FURY Race Cars.
“I’m looking forward to working with SRX, it’s drivers and Hawk again this year. We are building off a great program from 2021, and excited for what’s ahead,” said Tony Eury Jr., who spent 7 years with Hawk at DEI.
SRX Competition Director Ryan McKinney and SRX returning Car Chief Rick Ren have been working with FURY and Hawk, as well as managing SRX’s in-house car operations.
FURY Race Cars is a manufacturing company based in Mooresville, North Carolina that designs and builds race cars for competition in various forms of oval and road racing series around the world. FURY Race Cars was founded in 2016 by the trio of Darius Grala, Tony Eury Jr. and Jeff Fultz.
The SRX Series will see a number of marquee drivers from last year’s season return, including Michael Waltrip, Paul Tracy, Helio Castroneves, Tony Kanaan, Marco Andretti, and Bobby Labonte. The series will see new full-time additions such as Ryan Newman, Greg Biffle and Ryan Hunter-Reay for the 2022 season. Josef Newgarden is also confirmed to race at the Nashville Fairgrounds on July 9th. Last year, the summer series ultimately saw Tony Stewart claim the inaugural SRX Racing Championship.
