STATESVILLE, N.C. – GMS Racing has announced that Kris Wright will compete in select events for the team this season.

Wright will pilot the No. 21 Chevrolet in the ARCA Menards Series event at Michigan Int’l Speedway on Aug. 9 and the No. 24 Chevrolet Silverado in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Series at the Daytona International Speedway Road Course on Aug. 16.

Wright made his ARCA West debut at the Utah Motorsports Campus double header in June where he finished second and third in the two events. Wright finished second in the LMP2 class in the 2019 Rolex 24 at Daytona. The Wexford, PA native claimed the IMSA Prototype Challenge Championship (LMP3) in 2018 and was the IMSA Prototype Challenge Rookie of the Year in 2017.

“I’m really excited to be making my first ARCA and NASCAR starts with GMS and Chevrolet,” said Wright. “You always want to be doing it with the best team. I’m a Chevy guy from birth so it’s a dream come true.”

Most recently Wright competed in the CARS Super Late Model Tour event at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway on Saturday in a GMS Racing entry, finishing 11th.
