NASCAR: Truck Series vet Joey Coulter climbing out of driver’s seat

1 Comment

After four years of full-time competition in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Joey Coulter is going to try something new.

Without funding to continue into a fifth season with the Trucks, Coulter has climbed out of the No. 21 GMS Racing Chevy Silverado but will stay with GMS as its Team Relationships Coordinator.

In a statement, Coulter said: “I am excited to continue my relationship with GMS Racing Unfortunately, due to a lack of sponsorship, I will not be in a truck this season.

“Taking on a new position with GMS allows me to continue my involvement in the racing community and also stay involved as a driver with my family’s dirt racing program. So I get the best of both worlds.”

Coulter has been a largely steady competitor in the Truck Series. His best season came in 2012, when he won at Pocono and finished third in the championship for Richard Childress Racing.

After a so-so season with Kyle Busch Motorsports in 2013 (15th in points), Coulter went to GMS Racing in 2014. He collected three Top-5s and 10 Top-10s en route to a seventh-place finish in the standings.
