Rajah Caruth driving “Born Driven” scheme at WWT Raceway

Rajah Caruth’s No. 24 Chevrolet Silverado will feature a “Born Driven” scheme this weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway.

The scheme is a continuation of a partnership between GMS Racing and the Wendell Scott Foundation.

Born Driven is based on Wendell Scott, the first African-American NASCAR Driver and Team Owner. It follows Scott as a boy growing up in the South as he chases his dream of becoming a race car driver.

“In honor of my grandfather, Wendell Scott, I’m excited to introduce a new generation to his legacy as the first African American NASCAR Driver and Team Owner. As part of the mission of the Wendell Scott Foundation, our hope is that Born Driven will inspire today’s youth with the message that anything is possible with enough drive and willpower.” said Warrick Scott, CEO of the Wendell Scott Foundation.

The book will be available to retailers in late November. Currently pre-sales are taking place. A portion of all sales will be donates to the Wendell Scott Foundation.

“It’s a true honor to represent the Scott name and Foundation every race weekend, and to do it specifically this weekend with the release of Born Driven, is a blessing! When I was a kid, I would always try to read as many NASCAR-related books as I could. I think it’s pretty obvious to say that reading those helped fuel my passion for the sport. I just couldn’t get enough of them. So to me, having a children’s book about Wendell Scott is really cool, and I think it will hopefully help to bring some young eyes into the mix. The Wendell Scott Foundation has done such a great job with showing kids that there are so many possibilities out there, which is something I admire very deeply. I also can’t wait to return to WWT Raceway with a little bit of vengeance in mind. We’ve clearly got the speed in our team and I think this type of track will suit us, so I’m excited for it.” exclaimed Caruth.

The NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series heads to the St. Louis area for the twelfth race of the 2023 season at World Wide Technology Raceway on Saturday, June 3rd. Coverage of the Toyota 200 will be broadcasted on FOX Sports 1 (TV), the Motor Racing Network (Radio), and Sirius XM NASCAR (Channel 90) at 1:30 PM ET. Follow GMS Racing on social media for continued partner updates and announcements.
