– Climbing behind the wheel for his first NCWTS start at Texas Motor Speedway, and his second of four races in 2018 with GMS Racing, Creed will utilize chassis no. 312 for Friday night’s race. The No. 2 team has used this particular chassis three times in 2018 with Cody Coughlin, including when the NCWTS raced at Texas earlier this season, finishing a chassis-best eighth.
– While this may be Creed’s first NCWTS start at Texas Motor Speedway, this won’t be the first time the 21-year-old will have seen the facility. In June of 2017, Creed competed in the inaugural SPEED Energy Stadium Super Truck Series “No Limits Rumble” event, leading the most laps and collecting the win in the second race of the weekend.
– Like at Martinsville Speedway, Creed’s No. 2 Chevrolet Silverado will carry sponsor A.M. Ortega onboard this weekend at Texas. A.M. Ortega’s mission is to provide diverse civil engineering solutions for current and future generations with an emphasis on safety, excellent workmanship and innovation. Also featured on the No. 2 at Texas will be United Rentals, another partner who has had longtime success as a part of Creed’s racing career.
“I’ve been counting down the weeks until we go to Texas (Motor Speedway). I was excited to get in a truck for Martinsville, but I’ve had Texas circled as the track I was most excited for. The air is going to be huge for these trucks there, and I know I’ll have to get us to that compared to racing an ARCA car. GMS has fast mile-and-a-half trucks, and I know that both Johnny (Sauter) and Justin (Haley) have had success there, which helps. I raced at Texas last year in Stadium Super Trucks and got the win on night two. I burned the tires down that night, and I’m hoping to have the chance to do the same this weekend in the No. 2.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
