Gray Gaulding and his No. 08 Chevrolet team are set to compete in the Desert Diamond Casino West Valley 200 this weekend at ISM Raceway. Saturday will mark Gaulding’s second career visit to ISM Raceway in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. In his previous attempt in 2017, Gaulding was only able to complete six laps before an electrical issue ended his day prematurely. Despite his lack of Xfinity experience, Gaulding has three starts in the Monster Energy Cup Series at ISM Raceway.

Chassis 709 was previously raced at Richmond Raceway, where Gaulding finished in the 22nd position. As the Series enters the next to last race of the 2019 season, Gray Gaulding currently sits in the 13th position in the NASCAR Xfinity Series point standings. Gaulding leads the No. 51 of Jeremy Clements by 12 points for the 13th position.
