Zane Smith will drive for GMS Racing during its 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series campaign, the team announced in a statement Tuesday, Nov. 19.
Smith completes GMS’ full-time lineup of four different drivers.
“When I got the offer from Mike Beam asking me to run a truck full-time for GMS Racing, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity,” Smith said in a team statement. “GMS is a championship-caliber team, and to be a part of an organization like theirs is a once in a lifetime opportunity … I know we will be a great team.”
Crew chief Kevin Manion will be atop the box for Smith, who drove full time in the ARCA Menards Series in 2018, winning four races. Smith also ran part time for JR Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2019, racking up seven top-10 finishes in 10 races.
“We are thrilled to welcome Zane (Smith) and Kevin (Manion) into the GMS Racing family for the 2020 season,” GMS Racing president Mike Beam said. “With Kevin’s veteran crew chief knowledge and Zane’s skill, they will make a great team. I think we have a solid lineup for 2020 and I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish.”
Smith’s number and sponsors will be announced at a later date, according to the team.
