Scotty Pierce reports that Jamie Nilsen is returning to the GP 55 team!
Susie and I are proud to announce Jamie’s return to the cockpit for the 2016 season. Jamie drove the 55 to a World record at Black Lake in 2014, a competition record that still stands. In 2015 Jamie and his wife, Jessica, had a beautiful baby girl, Claire. Jamie also set a new record in his 350 Pro, and won the National Championship in 2015. Jamie will be defending his Championship on the weekend of the Tri Cities race, and 2015 driver Dustin Echols will step back in. We think the world of both of these men, and we are excited to work with both Jamie and Dustin this year. Meanwhile work continues on the race boat in preparation of this season. Our crew is led by crew chief Thomas Seaton, and awesome crew members Joel Batchelor and Kevin Milliken. We are currently looking for one additional crew member that can help in the boat, and help me drive the truck
