Get To Know Our Owner, Billy Glavin

How did you become interested in racing?

"I started to get really into cars when I was 14-15 years old and my dad had an old BMW 535is that I helped him work on. From there we going into a BMW e30 M3 that we used from track days and drive schools. Eventually I wanted to go racing and over the winter of my Junior year of college, I converted the M3 into a proper race car. From there, I was hooked and knew I wanted to make racing my career. After college, I was fortunate enough to land a job at Hendrick Motorsports in the 24/48 team shop."


What is the most memorable moment in your career?

"A great memory that comes to mind is load in for the IMSA Prototype Challenge race at Daytona

this year. It was the first time we had both our Trucks/trailers together at an event and out of sheer luck, we were the first to load into the paddock. I was driving the second rig and it was pretty cool to watch the Jr III Racing rig lead the entire field of IMSA Prototype Challenge haulers through NASCAR 3 and 4 at Daytona and into the infield. Definitely a proud moment and the culmination of a lot of hard work from everyone to get to that event and perform like we did."


What is your long term goal or vision for JR III Racing?

"The growth of Jr III over the past 3 years has been incredible. We have stepped into IMSA Pro racing while still growing and expanding our Vintage and Club program. I want to continue to expand our Vintage program to service and support more customer cars as well as continue to grow and expand deeper into IMSA. Ultimately, I would love to expand the team into the Weathertech series if the right opportunity presented itself but for now we still have a lot to learn and grow in the Prototype Challenge series. It has been a great way for the team to get introduced to IMSA but we know we have a lot to learn from the older, more experienced teams in the paddock."
