Jones, Dillons To Run For GMS Racing

GMS Racing will run all 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events in 2015 with its No. 33 Chevrolet, competing for the Owner’s Championship with drivers Brandon Jones, Austin Dillon and Ty Dillon.    
Shane Huffman will serve as crew chief for the No. 33 GMS Racing team, marking his first full season with the organization. The veteran crew chief tallied three victories, seven Top-5 and 13 Top-10 finishes in the ARCA Racing Series and K&N Pro Series East last season. 
Jones is slated to compete in 17 of the 23 Truck Series events. The Atlanta, Ga., native made his debut with GMS Racing in October 2014, driving the No. 33 Chevrolet at Martinsville Speedway. In his second start with GMS Racing, Jones led the three-truck contingent with a 12th-place finish at Phoenix International Raceway. He will kick off his season with the team at Martinsville Speedway in March. 
Ty Dillon is scheduled to race three events for the Statesville, N.C. team. Dillon, a regular in the NASCAR XFINITY Series was crowned the 2012 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year and claimed three wins, four pole awards, 18 top-five and 33 top-10 finishes in the series. 
Rounding out the additional three races in 2015 is two-time NASCAR champion Austin Dillon. A veteran of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Dillon has garnered six victories, 12 poles, 21 Top-5 and 41 Top-10 finishes en route to the series championship in 2011. 
“I’m really excited for the 2015 season with GMS Racing,” Huffman, said. “We have a great driver lineup planned with Brandon, Ty and Austin. They have a lot of talent to bring to the table, and I know we’ll be able to run up front every weekend with these guys behind the wheel of our No. 33 Chevrolet.” 
Along with the No. 33 entry, GMS Racing will also field an additional full time truck driven by Spencer Gallagher. “We worked hard over the off season to put together two very strong teams,” said GMS Racing team manager Nic Moncher. “Shane and the No. 33 team with Spencer (Gallagher) and Jeff (Stankiewicz) on the No. 23 truck have a ton of potential to win races this year.”
