Lira Motorsports welcomes a new face to the 2016 season, a face that is recognizable in the Camping World Truck Series after his rookie debut and a top 20 finish in the season points last year. Korbin Forrister, a prodigy who started racing dirt tracks at a very young age, is up for the challenge of training with and competing against some of the biggest names in NASCAR. He is also extremely enthusiastic about all of the new opportunities that are coming his way. On January 29, Forrister made a powerful career move and signed on with Lira Motorsports. For Forrister to sit down with Carlos Lira and find they share a similar vision for the future made quite an impression on the young, motivated driver. “I just feel so blessed to have this opportunity” Forrister acknowledges.
Clearly eager for the start of the upcoming season, Forrister elaborates, “Lira Motorsports has the ability to run up front in both the NASCAR truck series and ARCA series. They are giving me the opportunity to drive in some of the best equipment you could get your hands on.” He’ll be running in the Camping World Truck Series in Daytona, Atlanta, and Martinsville to start off the season, followed by a race in the ARCA series at Talladega. Forrister concedes that with his new association with Lira Motorsports and their tight connection to Roush Fenway Racing, there will be a lot of pressure on him to perform well, but he is confident that he is in the right position to achieve the best results. “I am putting 100% focus on preparing myself and getting ready for Daytona,” he says. “I’ll be giving my absolute best effort so I can go run more races with those guys. I am so grateful to Carlos Lira for giving me this opportunity.”
