Gregg Thompson, Crye Precision Director said, “We are incredibly proud to join SERKET Racing and the NGT Motorsport race team in this effort. We’ve worked closely with Mark Llano for years to develop and deliver innovation for the warfighter and couldn’t be more excited to continue this tradition of excellence and integrity.
