Katie Garrison Steps Away from Day-to-Day Operations at GRT
ARKANSAS) Citing health reasons, Katie Garrison - the widow
of GRT Race Cars, Inc. founder Joe Garrison - announced today
that she will step away from the day-to-day operations at the
Greenbrier, Arkansas chassis manufacturer. In fact, today (Monday,
September 30) is her final day in the GRT office after thirteen
years of playing a pivotal role in the company that builds top
quality Dirt Late Model and Open Wheel Modified chassis for
customers worldwide. While Katie will be sorely missed at the
shop, GRT Race Cars will move forward 100% business as usual
- just as Joe would have wanted!
"It is extremely hard to leave after being at GRT for
thirteen years, but it is in my best interest to step away due
to my current fight with brain cancer and to spend as much quality
time as possible with our four-year-old daughter Jolie Kate,"
explained Katie today. "My doctors don't want me under
any extra stress and since I'm currently undergoing chemo, I
just feel like the time is right and I know Joe would 100% support
"While I'll still be in an ownership role with GRT, new
management will be coming in and details are still being finalized
with more information on the transition to be announced soon,"
she went on to say. "I just want all of the customers and
vendors that I have dealt with throughout the years to know
that I appreciate every one of them, that I enjoyed working
with them, and that I hope they continue to do business with
GRT Race Cars in my absence. We have a really good group of
dedicated employees that continue to strive to produce the highest
quality race cars available!"
To prove that GRT is moving forward business as usual, Katie
also wants customers to know that the company is working feverishly
on several new items that are on the horizon. More details about
the new projects will be released as soon as possible. In addition
to building some of the fastest racecars in the country and
across the world, GRT also stocks a large amount of racing related
products and parts.
