Heading into the 2017 season, Grant’s path would see several career-altering changes. He joined Sam McGhee Motorsports to tackle the full USAC National Sprint Car schedule, he seized an opportunity with Chris Carli to team up with the legendary Hemelgarn Racing group to chase the USAC Silver Crown championship, and then a sudden last-minute phone call led to a ride with Clauson-Marshall Racing at the Chili Bowl and eventually on the USAC National Midget tour. That year in 2017, Grant solidified his status as one of USAC’s best. He was a constant threat across all three divisions, picking up victories with all of his car owners in every series he contested. Most notably, Grant and McGhee were a noted force in the USAC National Sprint Car world, snagging a handful of victories and finishing second in the point standings. In 2018, he scored victories in all three premier USAC divisions once again. Switching to the TOPP Motorsports No. 4, Grant and TOPP struggled mightily throughout the opening half of the season and into the fall, but the pair clicked like no other when late September hit. Grant and TOPP went on to win five of the final eight events, taking $10,000 triumphs at Kokomo Smackdown and Fall Nationals before winning at Western World in Arizona and sweeping both preliminary features at Oval Nationals in California. Moving into 2019, Grant accepted a new opportunity with an emerging midget racing team, RAMS Racing. In only their third night together, Grant won his third-straight Chili Bowl preliminary feature and followed that with his second-career podium in Saturday’s main event, marking the birth of a new midget racing powerhouse on the block. He will once again contest the entire USAC National Sprint Car tour with TOPP Motorsports and the full USAC Silver Crown season with Hemelgarn Racing, while running a part-time schedule with RAMS Racing in the NOS Energy Drink No. 4 in 2019.
