Gray Gaulding will get a shot to showcase his talent in KBM equipment later this year.
Kyle Busch Motorsports has picked up another rising star for their Camping World Truck Series program - 17-year-old Gray Gaulding.
Gaulding has ten previous starts at the Truck level, scoring a fourth place finish at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park (Mosport) in 2014. The Virginia native is currently running full-time in the K&N East division and has been doing so for the last three seasons, but Motorsport.com understands he will no longer compete there for the remainder of 2015. He has one victory in the West cars, coming at Phoenix in 2013.
He is taking sponsor Krispy Kreme to the No. 54 Truck and will run three races - Martinsville, Mosport and New Hampshire. Christopher Bell and Justin Boston have shared driving duties in that Truck during the 2015 season.
“I’m very excited to be a part of KBM,” Gaulding said in a KBM press release. “It’s a dream as a driver because I remember growing up watching Kyle and how much I wanted to drive for him when he started his own team. I know his mentality is to go out every weekend and win races. It’s a championship organization with great people and I know I’ll be able to go to the race track and have an opportunity to win at each race.”
