More Core is a Diamond Drilling Services company, which is based in Stewart, BC. The company was founded in 2006, and McGee serves as a safety supervisor for them when not wheeling a race car.
“The road to racing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series has been full of unimaginable sacrifices, which makes me ever so grateful to be able to put a deal together with Reaume Brothers Racing that will see me make more starts in 2024 than I have had in any other year,” McGee explained in a team release. “I’m thrilled to have More Core Diamond Drilling Services on board for 6 select races in 2024. Their unwavering support of me and my racing is a direct reflection of everyone that works at More Core and I’m honored to be a part of that family. I look forward to adding more races in 2024 as I continue to build my season.”
Reaume Brothers Racing team owner Josh Reaume calls McGee an inspiration.
“Keith is a story unlike any other. The sacrifices that he, his family, friends, and everyone in his life have made to help him get to this point is inspiring,” Reaume said. “Being able to take Keith to several different types of tracks is a special privilege, and we’re looking forward to sharing Keith’s story throughout 2024.”
McGee, who made the announcement on Saturday, will pilot a Reaume Ford F-150 in the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Richmond Raceway, and Phoenix Raceway.
Fittingly, McGee’s plans were released on Veteran’s Day. The racer, who lives in Alaska, served in the United States Air Force for eight years, and he became the first disabled veteran to race in a NASCAR National Series event when he locked into the field for the Truck Series race at Richmond in 2019.
McGee’s best finish in 11 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts was a 10th-place effort at Talladega Superspeedway in 2021. In that race, McGee started from the 38th spot, avoided trouble all race long, and was there to capitalize in the closing laps.
The racer made the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series field three times in 2023, and he scored a best finish of 33rd, which came at Texas Motor Speedway. All three of McGee’s starts in 2023 came to an end with mechanical failures.
McGee will look to exercise the mechanical demons this upcoming season in a part-time stint with the Reaume team.
In addition to his 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series schedule, McGee revealed to TobyChristie.com that he plans to compete in the 2.4 Hours of LeMullets, which is an annual race put on by Cleetus McFarland, on November 17th at the Freedom Factory.
