STATESVILLE, N.C. — Karl Chevrolet will sponsor the No. 21 GMS Racing Chevrolet driven by Zane Smith during Thursday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway.
Karl Chevrolet, located in Ankeny, Iowa, is no stranger to motorsports, as the dealership has sponsored a number of drivers in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and ARCA Menards Series competition over the years.
In fact, this won’t be the first time that Karl Chevrolet partnered with GMS Racing, having sponsored Johnny Sauter at Michigan Int’l Speedway in 2017.
Thursday night’s race at Bristol will mark an important opportunity for driver Zane Smith to advance to the next round of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs. Smith is five points below the cutline, so a stellar run must be in the cards in order for the 22-year-old to advance.
Smith looks forward to the challenge.
“I am proud to represent Karl Chevrolet this weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. My GMS Racing No. 21 team and I have been working hard to prepare for this Playoffs cutoff race and I believe that we will have a good shot at advancing to the round of eight,” Smith said. “Bringing on new partnerships at this time of the season is crucial to our success on the race track and I look forward to giving it my all for the Karl Chevrolet family of employees and customers on Thursday night.”
