CHARLOTTE, N.C. – GMS Racing has signed 2011 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion Max Gresham to pilot the No. 23 AmWINS Chevrolet Silverado in five NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events this year.
Gresham is coming off his first full Truck Series season, where the 20-year-old captured one top-five and four top-10 finishes.
During a breakout year in 2011, Gresham recorded four poles, two wins, nine top-five and 11 top-10 finishes in 12 events en route to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East championship. The Milner, Ga., native has also competed in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, notching three poles, one win and eight top-10 finishes.
“I’ve been fortunate to have a lot of success up to this point of my career,” said Gresham. “However, my first Truck Series win hasn’t come yet and I really believe I have a great shot at getting to victory lane with GMS Racing. With support from Chevrolet and Richard Childress Racing, the team has everything needed to succeed. Charlotte can’t come fast enough so I can get behind the wheel of the No. 23 AmWINS Chevrolet.”
Gresham’s first Truck Series race of 2014 will come at North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway in May, followed by Kentucky Speedway in June, Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway in August, Martinsville (Va.) Speedway in October and Texas Motor Speedway in November.
“Everyone at GMS Racing is excited to welcome Max Gresham to our talented driver pool,” said Nic Moncher, team manager. “Max has showcased his talent at every level he has competed in and we look forward to helping him earn his first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory.”
