Spencer Gallagher will compete in all 23 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) events in 2015 with GMS Racing. Gallagher will pilot the No. 23 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet Silverado alongside teammate Brandon Jones in the No.33 Chevrolet.

In 2013, Gallagher made his premier start in the series at Kansas Speedway and tallied a total of 12 starts during the previous two seasons. In 2014 Gallagher scored his best career finish of third at Talladega Superspeedway behind the wheel of the No. 23 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet.

Gallagher will team up with veteran crew chief Jeff Stankiewicz who recorded three top-five and 10 top-10 NCWTS finishes with GMS Racing last year.

“A full season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for GMS Racing is something I have been looking forward to for a long time. We all made a lot of progress and noise throughout 2014. I cannot wait to be behind the wheel for all 23 events,” said Gallagher. “I know Brandon (Jones) and I have the equipment and personnel behind us to go race for wins.”

In addition to nine NCWTS starts in 2014, Gallagher also made 11 starts in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards. The 25-year-old Las Vegas native recorded four top-five and six top-10 finishes en route to his first career ARCA Racing Series victory in the season finale at Kansas Speedway in October.

“Spencer Gallagher is going to be someone to keep an eye on in 2015”, said Nic Moncher, GMS Racing team manager, “as we have all watched him progress over the last few years. We are excited to take on a full season with him and know he will succeed.

“Spencer brings a certain level of enthusiasm to the garage area that is infectious to all of our guys; it’s a great benefit for our team to have him in the truck.”
