Bertrand Motorsports Partners With Nathan Byrd/BYRD Racing For Select 2021 NEMA Races

(Press release from Bertrand Motorsports)

Nathan Byrd has been selected to drive for Tim Bertrand/Bertrand Motorsports at select events on the 2021 Northeastern Midget Association Schedule.  

The 21 year old Byrd has a busy 2021 racing card, slated to compete in 65+ events throughout the season.  

 “We are excited to have Nathan and his family join the Bertrand Motorsports operation in 2021,” said team owner, Tim Bertrand. “The Byrd family’s association with open wheel racing, and midgets in particular speaks for itself.  The family’s association with names such as James Davison, Chris Windom, Rich Vogler, Bryan Clauson and Stan Fox, just to name a few, is something we are very proud to help them carry on,” said Bertrand.  

Nathan started his racing career in karts in 2018, moving to full size in 2020 to contest the Lucas Oil Formula Car Racing Series. His first year in cars also saw him expand his schedule to include the Mel Kenyon Midget Series, Radical Focus Midget Series, and his national Midget debut in the “Night Before the 500” on The Oval at Lucas Raceway in Indianapolis.

Nathan has secured two track championships in karting, scored a podium finish in the rain in the Lucas Oil Formula Car Series, and notched a third-place finish in the 2020 Radical Focus Midget Series championship standings.

“I am absolutely stoked that Byrd Racing is partnering with Bertrand Motorsports to go NEMA racing in 2021. I can’t wait to be part of a series with such a robust history among absolute legends of the craft. The cars themselves look incredibly fun and challenging to drive and I can’t wait to get one up to speed. I’m looking forward to a successful year and to glorifying God while on the journey!,” said Nathan Byrd.

Nathan has been confirmed to run the following schedule:

May 15th – LEE USA Speedway

July 21st – Waterford Speedbowl

August 21st – Wiscassett Speedway
