  • Sponsor spotlight: LiUNA! returns this week to feature on Tyler Ankrum’s No. 26 Silverado. Riding along with Chase will be ribbons with names of breast cancer survivors who are related to GMS Racing employees and crew members in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
  • Chassis history: Ankrum and his No. 26 crew will utilize winning chassis no. 104 on the high banks at Talladega, a truck that only has four races on its resume. This chassis has three Top 10 finishes, including a win at Daytona International Speedway in 2016 with Johnny Sauter. It most recently competed at Talladega in 2019, where Stewart Friesen earned a fifth place finish.
  • Shake & Bake: On the final restart in last year’s race at Talladega, Tyler Ankrum had a potential win slip away when the drivers in his line did not work together behind him. Determined to come back stronger this time around, Ankrum is ready to race for a victory to end his season on a high note. Fans may remember Tyler’s throwback paint scheme this year was a Ricky Bobby-inspired tribute, and that’s no coincidence – he wants to go fast!
  • Quote: I’m excited to headed to ‘Dega, I always love going there but I typically don’t ever wanna go back until this weekend rolls back around. We have always brought fast trucks to compete there, but we just never have the luck to finish it out. I’m looking to finish this year and have a good run!”
