Oklahoman, Earnhardt-Ganassi Team Member Monty Grice Dies at 51

Oklahoma City native Monty Grice built race car chassis. He started by building super modifieds and IMCA dirt modifieds and then moved on to become shop foreman at Dirt Works Racing.

Grice eventually landed his dream job of working for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing in Troutman, N.C. A family obituary said, “Although he obtained a job in the NASCAR industry, he never lost his love for dirt car racing.” Grice died at age 51 after a 6½-year battle with pancreatic cancer. (The Oklahoman)
