I’m excited to see where this journey takes us.”

Co-Founder of RPM, Tyson Graves also states, “I am beyond blessed to be part of a great series with so much racing history. To work with someone like Tony that has such notoriety in the late model community makes this opportunity that much sweeter. The affiliation with the Mars Dirt Car Series is a key ingredient to helping grow the RPM brand in 2020.”

The Mars Dirt Car Series is under new ownership for the 2020 season. The series will enter its 21st season with Promoter Tony Izzo Jr. at the reigns.
