In the fast-paced world of high-speed racing, the journey to victory is more than just a battle against the clock. It’s a testament to teamwork, innovation, and an unyielding commitment to excellence. As a proud sponsor of Gonella Racing, a team dedicated to nurturing young racing talent for the F4 US Championship, Eastern celebrates the synergy between racing and logistics.

Gonella Racing embodies the core principles that drive both Eastern Shipping Worldwide and Eastern Racing – excellence, innovation, and teamwork. These principles lay the foundation for success, whether on the racetrack or orchestrating intricate logistical operations.

At the heart of Gonella Racing’s endeavors are two exceptional young drivers, Carl Bennett #9 hailing from Yorba Linda, CA, and Tyke Durst #17 representing Cary, NC. Their performances have reverberated across the racing world, capturing attention and admiration.

Before the recent New Jersey Lottery Speed Tour event, Gonella Racing found itself positioned 6th out of 17 teams with a commendable total of 45.5 points. In the individual driver standings, Carl Bennett #9 secured the 10th spot with 37 points, while Tyke Durst #17 held the 13th position with 8.5 points.

From July 28 to July 30, 2023, the New Jersey Lottery Speed Tour event unfolded at the New Jersey Motorsports Park, providing a platform for Tyke Durst #17 to shine. During Race 1, he displayed prowess by clinching the 10th place and gaining 1 point. In Race 2, Tyke’s determination bore fruit as he crossed the finish line in 9th place, adding 2 more valuable points to his tally. Regrettably, Race 3 did not yield any points for the team.

In the rankings for individual drivers and teams, Carl Bennett #9 moved down to 11th place among 39 drivers with a total of 37 points.
