GRIMES, Iowa (June 23, 2022) – Grimes, Iowa’s Ryan Giles is set to continue his 2022 campaign with a clear mind and fresh start, ready to pilot his family-owned No. 9 in the 360 sprint car division at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa. A familiar face in the 360 sprint ranks for several years, Giles will focus the remainder of his season on consistency, race wins, and above all, a strong showing at the 360 Knoxville Nationals.

Giles, a former Knoxville Raceway 360 Rookie of the Year and 360 Knoxville Nationals preliminary winner, will resume action when the 360 sprint cars make their return to Knoxville for the Mid-Season Championship on July 2.

“I’ve been given a great opportunity to return to 360 sprint car competition in my own cars and I’m really excited to race again with my own team,” Ryan Giles explained. “There’s still a lot of racing left on the calendar, so we’re going to do our best to perform well in the remaining Knoxville events. We may make time to visit Jackson or I-80 at the end of the year, but for now, we’ll keep our focus on Knoxville.

“A big thanks to our friends at Albaugh LLC, Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, and Omega Concrete Mixers,” Giles added. “We’re proud to have them join us in this new venture and it certainly wouldn’t be possible without their support.”

The 32nd running of the 360 Knoxville Nationals will highlight Giles’ 2022 season, set to commence on Thursday, August 4, and extending through Saturday, August 6.

Ryan Giles would like to thank all his marketing partners including: Albaugh, LLC., Iowa Barnstormers, Hicklin Powersports, Barron Equipment, and Omega Concrete Mixers.
