2019 Gander Trucks Recap

  • Smith had no Gander Trucks starts in 2019.

Notes:

  • 2020 will mark Zane Smith’s first full-time NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Series season. He joins the organization after a 10-race stint with JR Motorsports in 2019, where he accumulated two top-five and seven top-10 finishes. Veteran crew chief Kevin “Bono” Manion has joined the organization to lead the team for Smith.
  • Smith and the No. 21 team will compete with chassis No. 134 this week in Daytona. This chassis is a brand new addition to the GMS stable.
  • Smith’s only prior Gander Trucks start came in 2018 at Gateway where he finishes fifth with Manion as crew chief.
  • ICON Vehicle Dynamics will partner with Smith for the season opener. ICON Vehicle Dynamics is a premiere performance suspension manufacturer specializing in aftermarket components for trucks, SUV’s and off-road suspension development.
  • Smith has one prior start at Daytona International Speedway in the ARCA Menards Series in 2018. He qualified second before being involved in a wreck that would end his run early. Smith has had good fortune at a superspeedway, however, winning the 2018 ARCA event at Talladega.

Quote:

“It’s super cool to be able to start in Daytona and know you’re competing for the entire year. It takes a lot of pressure off me to know I can be more aggressive and try more things than what you could do if you’re part time. I have no expectations as far as strategy before we get there, just going to race the situation I’m put in.”

TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
