Charlotte, N.C. — (July 30, 2015) 17-year-old Virginia native and NASCAR Next alumnus Gray Gaulding along with long time partner Krispy Kreme Doughnuts join Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) for three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) races in 2015.
Gaulding’s first race in the No.54 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Toyota Tundra will be at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park on August 30 where he qualified second and finished fourth in 2014. Gaulding will also race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on September 26 and Martinsville Speedway on October 31.
“I’m very excited to be a part of KBM,” Gaulding said. “It’s a dream as a driver because I remember growing up watching Kyle and how much I wanted to drive for him when he started his own team. I know his mentality is to go out every weekend and win races. It’s a championship organization with great people and I know I’ll be able to go to the race track and have an opportunity to win at each race.
“I can’t thank Krispy Kreme and the more than 40,000 worldwide team members enough for believing in me and taking a chance on a 17-year-old kid. Driving a KBM Toyota Tundra is my dream opportunity.”
“Gray Gaulding is a tremendous driver and a wonderful person, and we’re thrilled that KBM has given him this opportunity to drive one of their Toyota Tundras,” said Tony Thompson, Krispy Kreme President and CEO. “We’re very pleased with how Gray has represented our brand for the past three years, and we’re excited to be along for the ride during this next phase of his career.”
