Owasso. OK. – (Spring 2014) Barber Motorsports Park – Dean Martin, driver of the #50 Rehagen Racing Mustang Boss 302 liked what he saw. There was a talent working hard to breakout and become the best that he could. He had seen Nate on other occasions but this was the first time he was able to watch him race. It was no surprise to Dean when Nate took to the podium weeks later at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport), and he was the first to text his congratulations after the race.
Fast forward to March 2015 at the Circuit of the Americas where all classes have gathered for the season opener. Mike Stacy happened to cross paths with Dean in the paddock and mentioned that he would really love to get Nate into a competitive GTS Car. Dean had a solution, Rehagen Racing has been building, preparing and providing “Turn-Key” Mustangs since 2007 and would love to work with Nate and Stacy Racing. Over the next few hours, the two discussed the possibility. A few more meetings and a one race deal came together, Nate will be making his GTS debut with Rehagen Racing at Barber Motorsports Park.
“I’m excited to provide Nate this opportunity to drive a competitive car in GTS. Since I will be racing my new GTS Mustang Boss 302S at Barber, the car that I won with at St Petersburg is the car that we have made available to Nate for Barber. I’ve been watching Nate drive for the past few years and he has been very impressive. I’m really looking forward to seeing Nate run in the very competitive GTS class.” – Dean Martin
“I’ve known Dean a few years now, and we started talking in March I knew that he and Rehagen Racing was the right place to go. This opportunity fell into place and they worked with us to make it happen. They are great to work with and have shown us such great support pre-race that I am confident that Nate will do well at Barber.” – Mike Stacy
