“I just feel so blessed to have this opportunity” Forrister acknowledges. “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. I am putting 100% focus on preparing myself and getting ready for Daytona. 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.”
