About McGill Motorsports
Formerly known as DCT, McGill Motorsports is owned by John & Nancy McGill from Jupiter, Florida, who had a passion for racing and entered their first Nascar Busch race in Daytona on 7/4/03. Driven by past BGN Champion, Steve Grisson, their car #61 continued on after Daytona to run 2 more races as car #61, then changing to car #36 for another 2 races.
They decided to continue racing part-time in the Busch Series for 2004 and despite running only 23 races, with very limited sponsorship, still finished in the top 30 in points. At the Nashville race in April of that year, rookie driver, Travis Geisler, made his debut, splitting driving time with Steve Grissom. With the departure of Grissom in May, Geisler assumed the full-time driving responsibilities. In October, they joined forces with Stanton Barrett who finished out the last 3 races of that season.
2005 was the first full season for the team, with Barrett in 26 races, T.J. Bell in 8 races, and Tim Sauter in the season finale at Homestead, achieving a top 10 and several top 20 finishes. They finished 29th in owner's points, securing a lock-in position for the #36 for the first 5 races of 2006.
Now renamed McGill Motorsports, the #36 will participate in the full 2006 Busch Series schedule and anticipates a great season with a talented crew headed up by Ricky Pearson, and engines by Carl Wegner.
