Truck No. 17 history[edit]

Kyle Benjamin in the No. 17 at Martinsville Speedway in 2018

On January 22, 2018, it was announced that David Gilliland Racing and Crosley Sports Group would merge into one team and join the Truck Series part-time. The team had purchased Red Horse Racing's assets. Chris Eggleston was announced as the driver beginning at Charlotte for a limited schedule. However, with the threat of rain before the Charlotte race, Eggleston moved to the primary 54 truck for the race and team co-owner Bo LeMastus shifted to the 17, which had no owner points. Qualifying was rained out, and LeMastus missed the race.[4]

On December 14, 2018, it was announced that Tyler Ankrum will compete full-time in the No. 17 competing for Rookie of the Year honors in 2019. He will miss the first three races due to age restrictions but run all the races after that.[5] On February 20, 2019, it was announced that Ryan Reed will drive the No. 17 Toyota at the Strat 200 at Las Vegas.[6] On July 11, 2019, Ankrum scored his first Truck Series win at Kentucky after Brett Moffitt ran out of fuel towards the final lap. This also marked DGR-Crosley's first Truck Series win.[7]
