GMS Racing, formerly known as Gallagher Motorsports, is an American professional stock car racing team. They compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, fielding five full-time Chevrolet Silverado trucks: the No. 2 of Sheldon Creed, the No. 21 of Zane Smith, the No. 23 of Chase Purdy and A.J. Allmendinger, the No. 24 for multiple drivers, and the No. 26 of Tyler Ankrum. They also compete in the ARCA Menards Series, fielding the No. 21 Chevrolet SS part-time for Jack Wood, Daniel Dye, and Kody Swanson. Their ARCA team also competes part-time in the main ARCA Menards Series East and the ARCA Menards Series West.

GMS also previously competed in the NASCAR Xfinity Series from 2016 to 2019. The team has a technical alliance with Hendrick Motorsports and JR Motorsports. The team's driver development program, Drivers Edge Development, is operated in conjunction with JRM.

Owner Maurice J. Gallagher Jr. is the chairman and CEO of the Allegiant Travel Company, which sponsors the team through its Allegiant Air brand.[2]

History[edit]

Prior to the formation of his own team, Maurice Gallagher was previously involved in NASCAR with local Las Vegas driver and friend Spencer Clark's team when it competed in the NASCAR Busch East Series and Busch Series until his unexpected death in 2006.[3]

GMS Racing, then known as Gallagher Motorsports, was formed in 2011 when they entered ARCA competition. They then expanded their operations into the Camping World Truck Series in 2013,[2] and then to the Xfinity Series in 2016. The team was initially based in Charlotte, North Carolina, in the former BAM Racing shop. The team later moved to another shop, and BK Racing moved into their old shop.[4]

For the 2014 season, the team acquired the assets of Richard Childress Racing's truck series program, and entered a technical alliance with the organization.[5] In 2015, former crew chief Mike Beam became competition director,[1] while RCR and manufacturer Chevrolet increased their technical support.[2] In addition, the team relocated from Charlotte to Statesville, North Carolina near the Statesville Regional Airport. This was the former facility of Evernham Motorsports and later Richard Petty Motorsports, which had been unoccupied since 2010.[6][7][8][9] GMS also began using the number font formerly used by Braun Racing and Turner Scott Motorsports.[2] As of 2016, the No. 21 team in the Xfinity Series uses the same number font as Wood Brothers Racing, alternating with the number style of the rest of the team. In early 2017, the team formed an alliance with Halmar Friesen Racing.[10] This alliance was expanded in August of that year.[11]

In early 2019, it was announced that GMS Racing had started a Chevrolet development program, Drivers Edge Development, with JR Motorsports. Drivers in the program would race in GMS Racing's NASCAR K&N Pro Series, ARCA Menards Series, and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series teams, as well as JR Motorpsorts's Late Model and NASCAR Xfinity Series teams. They will be mentored by Mardy Lindley (GMS crew chief) and Josh Berry (JR Motorsports Late Model driver). GMS Racing drivers John Hunter Nemechek, Sheldon Creed, and Sam Mayer were among the inaugural members of the program.[12]

Cup Series[edit]

Car No. 94 history[edit]

Ty Dillon (2022)

On June 17, 2021, Gallagher announced that GMS Racing would move up to the NASCAR Cup Series in 2022.[13] On October 10, GMS announced that Ty Dillon would drive the No. 94 in their inaugural Cup season.[14]

Xfinity Series[edit]

Car No. 23 history[edit]

Part-time (2016)

On February 4, 2016, GMS announced that they would field a part-time Chevrolet Camaro for Spencer Gallagher for 13 races starting at Phoenix. The car number would be 21. Gallagher finished 23rd in that race.[15] Gallagher ran a total of seven races in the No. 21 car in 2016, with a best finish of eight in the Daytona July race.[16]

Spencer Gallagher (2017–2018)

On December 1, 2016, GMS announced that they will field a full-time No. 23 (The 21 was occupied by Richard Childress Racing driver Daniel Hemric) Chevrolet Camaro for Spencer Gallagher.[16] Gallagher had a disappointing rookie season, with just only one top 10 at Richmond and eight DNF's in the 2017 season. The organization scored its first NXS victory with Gallagher in spring 2018 at Talladega Superspeedway.[17] On May 2, 2018, four days after his first win, NASCAR announced that Gallagher was suspended indefinitely for a substance abuse violation.[18] Johnny Sauter was announced as a substitute driver.[19] Brennan Poole tested the car at Charlotte, leading some to believe that he would drive in the Charlotte race later that month.[20] However, it was later announced that Cup Series driver Chase Elliott would be in the car for that race, as well as the races at Pocono, Chicagoland, Daytona, and Bristol.[21] Alex Bowman was later announced as the driver of the 23 at Michigan and Kentucky while Justin Haley drove the 23 at Iowa in his XFINITY Series debut. Casey Roderick made his return to the series driving the 23 at the July Iowa race and it was also announced later that night that A. J. Allmendinger would pilot the 23 at Watkins Glen the following weekend.

Nemechek's No. 23 in 2019

On August 4, 2018, GMS Racing announced that NASCAR Hall of Famer and 1988 NASCAR Winston Cup Series champion Bill Elliott will come out of retirement to drive the No. 23 at the Road America race on August 25.[22]

John Hunter Nemechek (2019)

John Hunter Nemechek came over to the 23 car from Chip Ganassi Racing to run the full season in the No. 23 in 2019.Despite only leading 14 laps, Nemechek qualified for the Chase and performed well, finishing seventh in points, the best for GMS. After the season, he announced that he would be leaving to join Front Row Motorsports in the Cup Series, leaving the car open for 2020. Nemechek would total five top 5s and 19 top 10s in his one year at GMS.

Car No. 24 history[edit]

Ben Kennedy (2017)

On April 17, 2017, it was announced that Ben Kennedy would pilot a new second Xfinity entry for GMS in twelve races, beginning with the May race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.[23] Jeff Stankiewicz, who was Kennedy's crew chief for his 2016 Chase run in the trucks, was also crew chief for the No. 96.[24] Brett Moffitt drove the 96 at the second Iowa race picking up an 11th-place finish. The No. 96 team has not run since Darlington Raceway and has withdrawn from some races after that with no sponsor listed.[25]

Justin Haley (2018)

Although it was rumored for many months Brennan Poole and Brett Moffitt would drive the car full-time sharing the car in 2018, the car didn't return till later in the year renumbered to the No. 24. with Justin Haley driving the car in 2018 at Daytona in July and Watkins Glen in August. At the Daytona race, Haley was running third on the last lap off of turn 4 who then made an elevator move to pass both Kyle Larson and Elliott Sadler to cross the line first, though it was determined that Haley put two wheels below the line while passing both even though he had plenty of room to pass. They stripped Haley of the win to Kyle Larson and Haley was placed as the last car on the lead lap. Many thought this would be Haley's ride for 2019 but he moved onto Kaulig Racing instead.

Closure[edit]

On November 21, 2019, GMS Racing announced they will shut down their Xfinity Series program to focus on their Truck Series and ARCA Menards Series teams.[26]

Camping World Truck Series[edit]

Truck No. 2 history[edit]

Cody Coughlin (2018)

On January 16, 2018, it was announced that Cody Coughlin would drive the No. 2 JEGS Chevrolet for the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. On September 24, 2018, Coughlin was released due to sponsorship issues. Spencer Gallagher drove the Talladega race where he finished 25th. Sheldon Creed was announced as the driver for the rest of the season.

Sheldon Creed (2018–2021)

Sheldon Creed took over the No. 2 truck full-time in 2019, after running the last four races in 2018. On July 22, 2019, GMS Racing announced that Jeff Stankiewicz would replace Doug Randolph as the crew chief of the No. 2.[27] On August 6, 2019, NASCAR suspended Stankiewicz, truck chief Austin Pollak, and engineer Jonathan Stewart for three races through September 10 after the No. 2 truck was discovered to have a ballast container violation during post-race inspection at Eldora. Darren Fraley served as interim crew chief during Stankiewicz's suspension.[28] Creed finished 11th in points with four top-5 finishes and 11 top-10 finishes. [29]

Creed had a breakout season in 2020. He got his first win in a rain-shortened Buckle Up in Your Truck 225, and his first non-rain-shortened win in the BrakeBest Select 159 five weeks later. Creed eventually won the championship, with five wins, nine top fives and thirteen top tens. [30]

Truck No. 21 history[edit]

Johnny Sauter in the No. 21 at Homestead–Miami Speedway in 2018
Spencer Gallagher (2013)

The 21 made 5 attempts in 2013 with Spencer Gallagher, qualifying for 3 races. Gallagher finished 22nd at Kansas, 20th at Texas, and 32nd at the season finale at Homestead.[31]

Joey Coulter (2014)

In January 2014, it was announced that 23-year-old Joey Coulter would drive the 21 Silverado full-time for GMS after driving Toyotas in 2013 for Kyle Busch Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing. GMS also announced a technical alliance with RCR, the team Coulter drove for in 2011 and 2012 and won at Pocono. Jeff Stankiewicz was announced as the crew chief.[32] Coulter earned three top 5s and ten top 10s to finish 7th in points.

Part-time (2015)

Due to a lack of sponsorship, Joey Coulter did not return to the driver's seat in 2015. Instead, he assumed the post of team relationships coordinator for the team.[33] At Las Vegas in October, Brennan Poole made his series debut in the 21 Truck with sponsorship from DC Solar.[34]

Johnny Sauter (2016–2018)

Johnny Sauter drove full-time in 2016 in the No. 21 Chevrolet Silverado with crew chief Marcus Richmond.[35] Sauter won in his debut with GMS at Daytona.[36] However, in the next 3 races, he finished 28th, 32nd, and 16th respectively. Sauter won at a fall Martinsville race to clinch a final four championship race at Homestead.[37] In the next week, Sauter won at a fall Texas race, his third victory of the season.[38] Sauter clinched his first career Truck Series championship at Homestead by virtue of his 3rd-place finish in the event.[39]

Sauter returned to the team in 2017.[40][41] After qualifying for the Championship 4 round in 2017 and 2018, but losing to Christopher Bell and Brett Moffitt in each year respectively, Sauter was released from the team due to lack of sponsorship, in order to make room for Brett Moffitt in 2019.

Sam Mayer (2019)

It was later announced that Sam Mayer would drive the 21 on a part-time schedule towards the end of the 2019 season.

Zane Smith (2020–present)

On November 19, 2019, it was announced that Zane Smith would drive a fourth full-time truck for the 2020 season, which was later revealed to be the No. 21. Smith had an outstanding rookie season with two wins, seven top fives, thirteen top tens, and a second place points finish.

Truck No. 23 history[edit]

Chase Purdy in the No. 23 at Darlington Raceway in 2021
Spencer Gallagher (2014–2016)

The No. 23 truck ran part-time in 2014, with Spencer Gallagher (9 races) and Max Gresham (5 races).[2][42] The team struggled in their first three races, with crashes at Martinsville and Kansas with Gallagher and a transmission failure with Gresham at Charlotte. They bounced back with an 11th at Kentucky with Gresham and top 15's at Iowa, Pocono, and Michigan with Gallagher. Gallagher earned a career best finish of third at Talladega in October.[43]

In a 2014 interview with NASCAR.com, Spencer Gallagher stated that he planned to run full-time in the Truck Series in 2015, presumably in the No. 23.[44] The No. 23 truck was announced as a full-time team with Gallagher in January 2015.[45] He then finished 10th in the points standings.

Gallagher returned for 2016 with new crew chief Jeff Hensley.[35] He earned two poles, with one top-five and eight top-10s to finish 12th in points.[16]

Part-time (2017–2018)

In 2017 the No. 23 truck returned to the track, now part-time, with Spencer Gallagher and Chase Elliott driving. At Martinsville Elliott got the first win for the No. 23 truck. The No. 23 team decided to shut down for the remainder of the season and sold their owner points to Norm Benning Racing.

A year later, the No. 23 team returned with Timothy Peters driving at Martinsville, getting a top 10.

Brett Moffitt (2020)

On December 13, 2019, it was announced that Brett Moffitt would be driving the No. 23 full-time in 2020 with Chad Norris as his crew chief. Although he had only one win, he advanced to the championship 4. Moffitt was in the lead in the championship race at Phoenix Raceway, when a caution came out for Dawson Cram and he fell to 10th.

Chase Purdy (2021)

In 2021, Chase Purdy will drive the No. 23 full-time replacing Moffitt.[46]
