Katie Garrison Steps Away From Daily Operations At GRT Race Cars

(Special to Delph Communications)

Citing health reasons, Katie Garrison – the widow of GRT Race Cars, Inc. founder Joe Garrison – announced today that she will step away from the day-to-day operations at the Greenbrier, Arkansas chassis manufacturer. In fact, today (Monday, September 30) is her final day in the GRT office. Her departure comes after thirteen years of playing a pivotal role in the company, which builds top quality Dirt Late Model and Open Wheel Modified chassis for customers worldwide. While Katie will be sorely missed at the shop, GRT Race Cars will move forward 100% business as usual – just as Joe would have wanted!

“It is extremely hard to leave after being at GRT for thirteen years, but it is in my best interest to step away due to my current fight with brain cancer and to spend as much quality time as possible with our four-year-old daughter Jolie Kate,” explained Katie today. “My doctors don’t want me under any extra stress and since I’m currently undergoing chemo, I just feel like the time is right and I know Joe would 100% support my decision.”

“While I’ll still be in an ownership role with GRT, new management will be coming in and details are still being finalized with more information on the transition to be announced soon,” she went on to say. “I just want all of the customers and vendors that I have dealt with throughout the years to know that I appreciate every one of them, that I enjoyed working with them, and that I hope they continue to do business with GRT Race Cars in my absence. We have a really good group of dedicated employees that continue to strive to produce the highest quality race cars available!”

To prove that GRT is moving forward business as usual, Katie also wants customers to know that the company is working feverishly on several new items that are on the horizon. More details about the new projects will be released as soon as possible. In addition to building some of the fastest racecars in the country and across the world, GRT also stocks a large amount of racing related products and parts.
