Frontstretch’s Truck Series content is presented by American Trucks

Taylor Gray was involved in a single-car accident last night in Statesville, N.C., David Gilliland Racing announced April 8.

Gray was transported to a local hospital and remains in stable condition.

After initially not specifying any possible injuries, the team announced he underwent surgery for a fractured L4 vertebra. In a couple of days, Gray will undergo another surgery for a fractured left foot and ankle. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Gray was originally slated to make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Richmond Raceway on April 17. However, DGR announced that due to his injuries and subsequent recovery, he will not debut then. As a result, the team will withdraw the No. 17 Ford.

Gray is the younger brother of full-time DGR Truck driver Tanner Gray.

Taylor Gray has made 26 combined starts across all three ARCA divisions. Overall, he has one win in ARCA Menards Series West competition last year at Kern County Raceway Park. He has 15 top fives and 24 top 10s.

In the most recent ARCA Menards Series race, a combination event with the West series, Gray finished ninth at Phoenix Raceway, two laps down.
