  • Sponsor spotlight: Karl Chevrolet joins GMS Racing for the first time this season to feature on Zane Smith’s No. 21 Silverado. The premier Chevrolet dealership based in Ankeny, Iowa has sponsored numerous NCWTS and ARCA drivers in years past, and last partnered with GMS Racing in 2017.
  • Chassis history/info: Smith and the No. 21 team will utilize chassis no. 330 on Thursday night. This chassis debuted in 2020 and has competed eight times with four Top 10 finishes to its credit. Smith raced this Silverado to a victory at Dover International Speedway last season, the second win of his career.
  • 21in21: Zane Smith enters Bristol with one main goal: advance to the next round of the Playoffs. A parts failure in Gateway severed Smith’s points cushion to the cutline, and for the second week in a row, the sophomore is on the outside looking in. Only five points separate Smith from a chance to continue his bid for the 2021 NCWTS championship, and the No. 21 crew is ready to put up a fight to prove they belong.
  • Quote: “I’m ready to return to racing at a high banked concrete track like Bristol. These tracks are my favorite type, and the closest thing I have to Dover so I’ve had it circled all year. I hope to have a mistake free night and lock ourselves into the Round of 8. Hopefully, we can get Karl Chevrolet into victory lane by the time it’s all said and done. I know we will have the speed to do so.”
