Since Gavan’s parents Kris and Natalie first buckled him into a race car at age three, he has earned over 23 championships and 300 wins. Gavan has improved at a rapid pace, being moved up to the 600cc micro sprints in 2020 as a development driver for Kevin Swindell and the Swindell Speedlab team and brand. On top of that, Boschele is now the youngest Team DRYDENE national driver at only 12 years of age.

“Today is a very exciting day for me. The chance to work with a cool brand like Motorsport Games is an unbelievable opportunity for me going forward. Its belief in me and what we can do both on and off the racetrack is very humbling and exciting. I’m incredibly thankful and appreciative for this opportunity, and I’m going to continue to work very hard to make them proud,” said Gavan.
