Josh Banister is from Davison, MI. He competed in Motocross until he was sidelined by a shoulder injury. In 2017, encouraged by friends who are racers to try something new, Josh began competing in Pure Stocks with car #19. He is totally rebuilding and reworking his vehicle during the off season, and plans to compete in 2018 in a car with the new #96. When he isn’t racing, Josh is employed as a performance technician and materials specialist at the GM Proving Grounds in Milford, works as a shade tree mechanic on the side, and enjoys riding dirt bikes and snowmobiles.
