NTS Motorsports, which operates teams in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and SPEARS SRL Southwest Tour, announced in a release Monday it is ending its relationship with driver Gray Gaulding and Gary Gaulding Racing.
NTS Motorsports, owned by Bob Newberry and located in Bakersfield, Calif., signed Gaulding, 17, in 2014.

“I am very appreciative of Gray and everything that Gray Gaulding Racing did to help NTS Motorsports during their time with us,” Newberry said. “I wish them nothing but good luck in the future.”
Gaulding already has a new ride, joining Red Horse Racing in the NCWTS and NKNPSE. Gaulding will race in the Truck Series’ Kroger 250 Saturday at Martinsville Speedway in the No. 7 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Toyota Tundra.
Gaulding has one career victory in the K&N Pro Series, a 2013 West race at Phoenix International Raceway.
