GMS Racing announced that defending Camping World Truck Series champion Johnny Sauter will return to the team in 2018.

Sauter, who will compete for the Truck championship tonight at Homestead-Miami Speedway (8 p.m. on Fox Sports 1), will drive the No. 21 Chevrolet in his 10th full-time season in the series.

The 39-year-old driver has been with GMS Racing since 2016 when he won his first NASCAR title. Prior to that he competed for ThorSport Racing.

“I can’t thank the Gallagher family and Mike Beam enough for the opportunity they’ve given me the last two years,” Sauter said in a press release. “To be able to compete at this level, where you know you could win any given weekend, is incredible and I’m excited to be able to continue with the No. 21 team next year.”

Regardless of where he places in tonight’s Ford EcoBoost 300, Sauter will clinch his seventh top-five finish in the Truck standings.

Sauter has 17 wins since his rookie Truck season in 2009. He has seven victories with GMS Racing, including a career-best four this season.
