In an effort to further his racing career 29-year-old Grant Enfinger has switched race teams in the ARCA Racing Series mid-season. Enfinger raced the first 11 races of the 2014 ARCA season for Team BCR Racing and scored four victories. He will race the final nine races of the season for GMS Racing.
Enfinger will now pilot the No. 90 Motor Honey/Casite Allegiant Travel Chevrolet. He also drove the No. 90 Ford for the Howard Bixman owned Team BCR Racing team. Currently Enfinger is in a tight championship battle with Mason Mitchell. Enfinger trails Mitchell by 15 points.
“I would like to thank Howard (Bixman) and Team BCR Racing for getting me to this point in my career,” Enfinger said. “I am thankful to Howard for allowing me this opportunity with GMS Racing. This alliance will provide me the opportunity to move to the next level in my career. We started the year off strong, and I look forward to finishing the season with GMS Racing as strong as I started.”
His first race with GMS Racing will be in in Firday night's SCOTT Get Geared Up 200 presented by Federated Car Care at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis. The race can be seen at 9 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
Enfinger will join Spencer Gallagher at GMS Racing in the ARCA Racing Series, however, Gallagher is not entered at Lucas Oil Raceway as he is running a partial schedule the rest of the season as he also races some in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Joey Coulter also drives for GMS Racing in the Truck Series.
