NASCAR Trucks: Spencer Gallagher to run full 2015 season at GMS


Spencer Gallagher will be GMS Racing’s full-time representative in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season.

Gallagher, a 25-year-old from Las Vegas, will drive the No. 23 Chevrolet Silverado in all 23 Truck Series events with backing from Allegiant Air and Jeff Stankiewicz as his crew chief.

GMS’ second driver, Brandon Jones, has already been confirmed to run the team’s No. 33 Chevy in 16 Truck Series events. Jones will also compete in some XFINITY Series events this year for Richard Childress Racing.

“A full season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for GMS Racing is something I have been looking forward to for a long time,” Gallagher said in a team release. “We all made a lot of progress and noise throughout 2014. I cannot wait to be behind the wheel for all 23 events.

“I know Brandon and I have the equipment and personnel behind us to go race for wins.”

Gallagher split his 2014 season between the Truck Series and the ARCA Racing Series. His best Truck Series finish in nine starts was a third at Talladega, and in 11 ARCA starts, he notched one win at Kansas as well as four Top-5 and six Top-10 finishes.

“Spencer Gallagher is going to be someone to keep an eye on in 2015,” GMS manager Nic Moncher said in the same release. “As we have all watched him progress over the last few years, we are excited to take on a full season with him and know he will succeed.

“Spencer brings a certain level of enthusiasm to the garage area that is infectious to all of our guys; it’s a great benefit for our team to have him in the truck.”
