Kaz Grala announced on Twitter he and Fury Race Cars have obtained sponsorship for Saturday’s Xfinity race at Daytona International Speedway (7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN), giving him and the team a sixth race together.

Grala’s No. 61 Ford will again be sponsored by Kiklos Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil in addition to Marlow’s Tavern.

Kiklos was on Grala’s car Saturday at Chicagoland Speedway when an electrical issue ended his day after just one lap, giving him a last-place finish and his third DNF of the year.

Marlow’s Tavern sponsored Grala in the Feb. 24 race at Atlanta.

Fury had to scramble to find sponsorship after its deal with NETTTS ended following the June 17 race at Iowa Speedway. NETTTS sponsored the No. 61 in the team’s first four races after Grala’s departure from JGL Racing following the May 5 race at Dover.

Kiklos has been a frequent sponsor of Grala’s since he competed in the K&N Pro Series East and the Camping World Truck Series. It sponsored Grala when he won the Trucks 2017 season opener at Daytona. At 18, the victory made him the youngest Daytona winner in NASCAR national series history.

This weekend’s Coca-Cola Firecracker 250 will be the first restrictor-plate race for Fury Race Cars, which is co-owned by Grala’s father, Darius Grala.

With chassis and team members from JGL Racing and support from Roush Fenway Racing and Roush Yates Engines, Grala has two top 10s in his five starts for Fury. His last-place finish Saturday was his first finish worse than 16th with Fury.

In the season opener at Daytona, Grala finished fourth for JGL Racing giving him top fives in both of his NASCAR starts at Daytona.

Grala enters this weekend 17th in points.
