GMS Racing to Make Cup Series Debut in 2022

GMS Racing has announced the team is preparing its NASCAR Cup Series debut in the upcoming 2022 season.

“GMS is always looking forward and I believe this is the next step for the team in that process,” Team Owner Maury Gallagher said. “We have the goal to be a championship-caliber team in any series in which we compete and I am excited to watch the team grow in the coming years.”

Since its formation in 2014, GMS has won 61 races across the ARCA Menards Series, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, and NASCAR Xfinity Series. GMS also took home the 2016 and 2020 Camping World Trucks championship, the 2015 ARCA Menards Series championship, and the ARCA East championship in 2019 and 2020.

“GMS has always risen to the occasion and proven that we are a team capable of competing at every level of this sport,” said Mike Beam, president of GMS Racing. “We have been preparing to make this step and with the addition of the Next Gen car in 2022, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to make the move.”

As the team actively seeks partnership opportunities for the 2022 Cup Series season, GMS Racing expects further announcements regarding driver and event schedules to come later.
