My name is Lucas Halbert, and I am the creator of Grassroots Racing News. I fell in love with racing when I was four years old and that love has never ceased. I just graduated from high school and will graduate from my local community college in December. In August of 2022, I plan on leaving Southern Illinois and going to college in North Carolina to pursue a degree in Motorsport Management. My dream one day is to be President of Operations on a NASCAR Cup Series team.

The idea of GRN came to me when I was laying in bed one night, and the next morning I got to work on creating GRN. I first started on Instagram and quickly decided that was not enough, so I ventured to Facebook. I then had thoughts of starting a website. My momma told me I did not know how to create a website, I had to prove her wrong, and here we are now. I plan on covering all areas of grassroots racing from Pro Late Model's to Modifieds to Micros to Silver Crown and everything in between. I  am dedicated to providing the best news and information about grassroots and local racing as possible.
