Gavan Boschele is already gaining quite the following at just the age of 14. The racing prodigy, will run a seven-race Super Late Model schedule with McLeod X Braden Motorsports with sponsorship backing from Motorsport Games and their NASCAR Heat franchise.
For Motorsport Games, the chance to partner with a young and talented driver is a perfect match for their NASCAR Heat offering on the Nintendo Switch. The NASCAR Heat Ultimate Edition game on the Switch will include Boschele’s paint scheme.
“Gavan is an incredibly talented rising star in the racing industry and one of the most accomplished junior racers competing today,” said George Holmquist, VP of Marketing & Publishing at Motorsport Games. “We’re excited to see Gavan hit the track, especially with the Nintendo Switch game, NASCAR Heat Ultimate Edition + livery, a paint scheme we believe will be popular among our player base. Motorsport Games has loved seeing Gavan’s continued progress and the bond that he has formed with BJ McLeod. We are proud to support Gavan and look forward to seeing his journey unfold through this upcoming year.”
According to a press release from the team, the young racer will run races at Five Flags, New Smyrna and Nashville Fairgrounds.
“One of my many joys in the sport of racing is supporting young passionate drivers like Gavan,” said BJ McLeod, NASCAR Cup Series driver and co-owner of McLeod X Braden Motorsports. “Gavan is a dedicated and talented young man with a proven track-record of success at only 14 years old. We are eager to see what he brings to the track for his seven races with us this season.”
Boschele, who has been competing since the age of five, already has 24 championships and 343 race wins across a plethora of different series and racing disciplines. The teenager is excited to get behind the wheel for the McLeod X Braden team in April.
“The opportunity to drive Super Late Models for BJ and Travis is really exciting for me,” said Boschele. “I started out racing quarter midgets when I was five; and, raced them all over the country until I was 10, so returning to pavement feels like a homecoming. Having both BJ and Travis to coach me and lean on will be very beneficial. It’s definitely pretty cool to have a current NASCAR Cup Driver and former Snowball Derby and Winchester 400 winner helping me to understand how to best drive these cars. I’m going to give BJ, Travis and the entire team everything I’ve got each time we’re on the track and can’t wait to get started at Five Flags in April.”
