Folsom, Grant



            Grant is a perfect example of why I love the racing action at Thunder Road.  He is a guy that is at ease chatting about sports or telling jokes as he is discussing gears and displacements.  Just a regular guy having a good time.  His crew is one of the most fun around....but they get the job done and have his car ready to land in Victory Lane soon!
