AVONDALE, Ariz. — ARCA Racing Series champion Sheldon Creed will drive for GMS Racing in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series next year.
Creed has made two Truck Series starts with GMS Racing this year an will also compete in Friday’s Truck Series race at ISM Raceway in Arizona and the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
“I am extremely pumped about the opportunity to continue my asphalt career and transition into being full-time in the Truck Series,” said Creed. “My goal in whatever I race is to be able to go out and compete for wins every week, and hopefully be in a position to contend for a championship at the end. I really think I have that opportunity with GMS Racing. We were able to get a jump start on next season by running these final four races this year, and I think that will really be to my benefit when we kick off the 2019 season.”
Creed, who made a name for himself in the off-road racing world, captured the ARCA Racing Series title while driving for MDM Motorsports this year. He scored four victories, 16 top-five and 18 top-10 finishes.
“We are really excited to add Creed full-time to our 2019 Truck Series line-up,” said Mike Beam, President of GMS Racing. “He is a talented driver that has the potential to have an impressive career in NASCAR. I know that the people at GMS Racing and GMS Fabrication will supply him with solid Chevrolets week in and week out.”
