MOORESVILLE, N.C. – GMS Racing has parted ways with NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Cody Coughlin, effective immediately.
Coughlin joined GMS Racing at the start of the season to drive the No. 2 Chevrolet. He’s earned six top-10 finishes this season, with a best finish of sixth at Dover (Del.) Int’l Speedway in May.
GMS Racing President Mike Beam said Coughlin’s departure was mainly due to a lack of sponsorship. Coughlin’s truck has mainly carried sponsorship from JEGS, a mail order auto parts company owned by the Coughlin family.
Spencer Gallagher will drive the No. 2 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on Oct. 13.
“Due to unforeseen issues with additional sponsorship needed, Cody Coughlin will no longer drive the No. 2 Chevrolet for GMS Racing,” Beam said. “We are grateful for the relationship we made with Cody and the Coughlin family. We wish them the best in their future endeavors. Spencer (Gallagher) will fulfill the No. 2 GMS entry at Talladega, and we will announce who will be driving the remainder of the year at a later date.”
This is the second time that GMS Racing has parted ways with a driver in the Truck Series this year. They previously parted ways with Dalton Sargeant, who had driven the No. 25 entry, in August.
