On Monday it was announced that Joey Coulter will drive for newly named GMS Racing in 2014 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The team, which was formerly Gallaher Motorsports, bought assets from Richard Childress Racing which will not run trucks in 2014 and will also have a technical alliance with Chevrolet and RCR.

The 23-year-old Coulter will enter his fourth full time season in the Truck Series. It was a career that started with him in RCR No. 22 trucks in the 2011 and 2012 seasons. He scored top 10's in 28 of the 47 races in those two seasons and won his first race in 2012 at Pocono Raceway. In 2011 he was seventh in points and in 2012 he was third.

In 2013 Coulter moved over to Kyle Busch Motorsports full time but things did not click for him there in the No. 18. He only scored five top 10's in the 22 races and finished 15th in points.

Now he will drive the No. 21 Chevrolet Silverado for GMS Racing.

"I can't wait to get this season started," said Coulter. "The GMS Racing guys have been putting in a lot of hard work the past few weeks to get us prepared for this year and I truly believe we can compete for the championship. That is our goal and we expect to be in hunt all season."

Jeff Stankiewicz will serve as crew chief for the team. The team was at the Preseason Thunder test in Daytona Monday running a total of 67 laps.

"The alliances GMS Racing has formed with Chevrolet and RCR along with Joey's driving ability will only help solidify our presence at the track each week," said team manager Nic Moncher.

The team will make sponsor announcements at a later date and also could run a different number but is using the No. 21 at Daytona testing.
