Grala To Truck Series With GMS Racing In 2017

Massachusetts native Kaz Grala will drive the No. 33 GMS Motorsports Chevrolet full time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series next season. 

The soon-to-be 18-year-old rookie drove part-time for GMS Racing in 2016, with three Top-10 results in nine starts. He advanced to the final of qualifying in all but one race, and recorded a best finish of seventh at his home track, New Hampshire Motor Speedway. 

“I am beyond thankful to have an opportunity with GMS Racing to run full time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2017,” said Grala. “This organization has been on a steep rise the past couple of years, and it’s been fun being a part of it in 2016.” 

Veteran crew chief Jerry Baxter will oversee the operation, after spending the 2016 campaign with rookie Chase contender Christopher Bell. “I’m looking forward to next season with GMS and working through this transition with Kaz. I really enjoy helping young drivers get started in this series and developing their talent, and I saw what Kaz accomplished in the few races he ran last season,” said Baxter. 

There is no word yet on sponsorship, and the status of Ben Kennedy – drove the No. 33 Chevrolet last season – is unknown.
