Mechanic-Turned-NASCAR-Driver, Cram Moves Full-Time
Dawson Cram is set to pioneer a novel tale in NASCAR racing. With a bucket load of driving experience under his belt, the young Cram will grace the NASCAR Xfinity Series full-time in 2024 for none other than JD Motorsports. This revelation was made public by veteran team owner Johnny Davis at his Gaffney shop.
As stated by Davis, “Dawson brings us a bright new perspective and a fire for racing.” Capturing the essence of his passion for racing, he further elaborates, “He and his family have been involved in the sport since he was five years old, and we aim to help him elevate his career. He’ll be a significant addition to our team.”
Interestingly, Cram’s association with JDM isn’t new or abruptly sprung. He had previously worked as a mechanic for the team, getting well-acquainted with the racing tactics at the NASCAR level.
Despite being only 22, Cram possesses compelling experience in the Xfinity, Craftsman Truck, and ARCA series, boasting 31 Truck starts and 12 Xfinity starts. His past associations include several teams, his Truck team being one of them.
Commenting on his forthcoming journey, an ecstatic Cram stated, “I‘m very excited to move along in NASCAR with Johnny‘s team.” His confidence in the team’s potential is unmissable. He added, “I‘ve seen how they work and race every week; I am certain they build good and fast cars. I know this will be advantageous for both me and the team.”
The season’s commencement is marked for Feb. 17 at the Daytona International Speedway for the 2024 Xfinity schedule.
