“I am glad to take part in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series next weekend at our Grobnik circuit. I drove many championships in my 40 years career, and achieved many European and Croatian hill climb titles. I have competed in many other series like European Truck Racing, SLR 722 Cup, F3000 and NASCAR will be something new and exciting for me,” said the eclectic 57-year-old. “Grobnik is a very nice circuit and always provides great battles. The final result isn’t so important for me. I just want to have fun and make new racing friends. This is a very big thing for Croatia because NASCAR and the World Rally Championship come to us and we are very happy about it. I can’t wait to be part of it. See you next weekend in Croatia!”

To compete in his first EuroNASCAR event, Pulic will count on the experience of the  Alex Caffi Motorsport / Race Art Technology team and will share the #1 Mustang with up-and-coming Cypriot talent Vladimiros Tziortzis.

All the races of the upcoming NASCAR GP Croatia at Automotodrom Grobnik will be streamed live on the EuroNASCAR social media profiles – Youtube, Facebook and Twitch – as well as on and Kreator TV.
