As the 2020 NASCAR season winds down more teams and drivers are shoring up their plans and contracts for the next season…and beyond.

GMS Racing has announced that Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series drivers Sheldon Creed, who drives the number 2 truck, and Tyler Ankrum, who drives the number 26 truck, will be returning next season to GMS. 

Creed and Ankrum are currently among the eight drivers in the playoffs.  Creed has 10 top 10 finishes in 20 races with three of them race wins.  Ankrum is the reigning Sunoco Rookie of the Year; and while he has yet to win a race, he has nine top 10 finishes this season.

Sheldon Creed spoke on his contract extension saying, “I’m excited to be coming back for another year with GMS.  I feel like we’ve made a ton of improvements in so many ways this year compared to my rookie year. I’m thankful to Chevy and everybody at GMS for the opportunity to come back next season to show what we’re really capable of and continue to improve and compete for wins and a championship.”

Tyler Ankrum also spoke on his return to GMS saying, “I’m thankful for another full-time year in the trucks with GMS next season.  This has been a learning year for our team, but I know we’ve got what it takes to go out and compete for wins. This is my first full-time season in trucks and to have the security and support from Maury (Gallagher) and Mike (Beam) to be back for another year is awesome. We still have a lot to prove and we’re in the perfect spot to do that for the rest of the season and next year as well.”

GMS Racing president Mike Beam spoke on the return of Creed and Ankrum saying, “GMS is excited to have these talented drivers back for 2021.  We’ve been blessed with a great deal of success this season and these young men have represented our organization well on and off the track. I have no doubt their determination and success will continue to grow in 2021.”

On October 22, Go Fas Racing announced that they would be closing full time operations at the end of this season and will be running only a handful of races as a part time team next season.  GFR owner Archie St. Hilare also announced that he would be selling his ownership in the team’s NASCAR charter.

On October 23, Matt Tifft and BJ McLeod revealed that they would be purchasing St. Hilare’s charter.  The duo will join Joe Falk in using the charter to enter races next season.
