GMS Racing has signed 19-year-old Dalton Sargeant to drive for the team this season and compete for rookie of the year honors in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
Sargeant will drive the No. 25 Chevrolet Silverado.
He was the rookie of the year in 2016 in ARCA and placed second in the points in that series last season. He also has competed in NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and West races. Sargeant has six career Truck starts, placing a career-best 10th at Bristol Motor Speedway in his series debut in 2015.
“I’m really excited to be joining a championship-caliber team in GMS Racing for the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season,” said Sargeant in a team release. “Mike Beam and everyone at GMS Racing has put so much effort into this No. 25 team during the offseason and I can’t thank them enough for this opportunity. GMS Racing has put together an all-star team of people and equipment, plus had faith in me to drive and compete for wins. I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish in 2018.
“It’s always been a dream and a goal to compete at this level in NASCAR. I left a career and a life in Europe to compete against the best in NASCAR and today is that day. We have a full slate of things coming up as a team and I know we’re all really looking forward to getting on the track and beginning the season.”
Doug Randolph will be Sargeant’s crew chief.
