Shane Lee to Join GMS in Texas
Newton, N.C. native will wheel the No. 24 Silverado, marking his third career Truck start. His previous two starts came this season at Gateway Motorsports Park and Martinsville Speedway driving for Kevin Cywinski.
“I’ve been working on getting back in a truck for a while now, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to do that with GMS Racing,” Lee said. “Mike Beam and his team have really shown this year and to think that I get a shot at competing in their equipment is something I would have never guessed would happen.”
Lee has found success running late models on short tracks in the Southeast, winning two late model titles. In 2013, he was named Rookie of the Year in the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. This year, he has run a partial schedule in the ARCA Racing Series, with a season-best eighth-place finish coming at Kansas Speedway.
The team will announce sponsorship details at a later date.
The Longhorn 350 from Texas Motor Speedway can be seen on FOX Sports 1, Friday, Nov. 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
