Gray Gaulding has scored one top-30 finish in six Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series starts this year.
His best finish came on the half-mile short track of Martinsville Speedway. That result was notable for another reason. It was only the second time this year that he finished on the lead lap, but it gave him the momentum to go the full distance again at Texas Motor Speedway. Apr 15 - 5:42 PM

If his record is any indication, Gray Gaulding will finish in the final quarter of the field at Auto Club Speedway.

Gaulding has two previous starts on unrestricted, intermediate speedways. He blew an engine at Atlanta Motor Speedway to finish 37th, but he was running at the end of Las Vegas Motor Speedway and still finished in the mid-30s. He was 34th, seven laps off the pace.
Mar 21 - 8:49 PM

Gray Gaulding will make his third start on a short, flat track this week and hopes to be running at the checkers for the first time in his career on this course type.

Gaulding retired early from last fall’s Martinsville Speedway race with a problem in the rear gear. He parked at Phoenix International Raceway with a broken fuel pump, but these efforts came with the No. 30 entry that often retired early.
Mar 14 - 5:29 PM

Gray Gaulding will join the Rookie of the Year battle at Atlanta Motor Speedway this week, making his third career start.

Gaulding’s two previous attempts do not provide enough data to adequately handicap him because he parked early at both Martinsville Speedway and Phoenix International Raceway last fall. His best finish was a 37th in the Can-Am 500 and with only 38 cars in attendance in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500, he is likely to finish better this week. He is not recommended for fantasy owners, however.
Feb 28 - 5:35 PM

Gray Gaulding will join the 2017 Rookie of the Year battle at Atlanta Motor Speedway driving the No. 23 BK Racing entry.

Gaulding is ineligible to race in the Daytona 500 because he has not started a race in NASCAR’s premiere series on a track 1.5-miles in length or greater. Gaulding is slated to run every race after the 500, but will give up the number 23 in two events—at Kentucky Speedway in July and Bristol Motor Speedway in August—as Joey Gase joins in a third entry. Gaulding will face stiff competition for the ROTY honors with Erik Jones, Daniel Suarez, and Ty Dillon driving for teams with greater funding.
Feb 1 - 12:22 PM

Circle Sport’s No. 33 and the No. 30 The Motorsports Group/Curtis Key team will merge for 2017 with Pat Tryson as crew chief. A driver has yet to be named.

Speculation on who will drive this entry surrounds Casey Mears or Gray Gaulding as a Rookie of the Year candidate. They will have a charter, and are therefore guaranteed to make all the races, but fantasy owners want to wait and see how they perform in the early stages. The No. 30 could be used on occasion without a chartered entry in high profile events.
Jan 7 - 1:02 PM

Gray Gaulding made three attempts in 2016, qualified for two races, but was not running at the end of any of his efforts.

Gaulding competed in the No. 30 that occasionally parked early in order to conserve resources. In his two starts, he finished 39th and 37th and that means he was never particularly fantasy relevant. The 2017 season will probably not change that opinion.

Gray Gaulding will be the driver who fails to qualify for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.

If he was your bargain basement dark horse, make certain that he is not on the roster.

Gray Gaulding will attempt to make his third NASCAR Cup series race this week in the No. 30 Motorsports Group entry.

Gaulding debuted on the half-mile Martinsville Speedway and ran again last week on the one-mile Phoenix International Raceway. This will be his biggest test, but first he has to qualify and that could be difficult in a field of 41 cars.

Gray Gaulding will make his second start in the NASCAR Cup series driving the No. 30 Motorsports Group Chevrolet.

Gray debuted in this car two weeks ago on the similarly flat Martinsville Speedway. It was an inauspicious debut in 39th after break a rear gear, so not much more should be expected this week.

Gray Gaulding will make his Sprint Cup debut this week at Martinsville Speedway in the Goody's Fast Relief 500.

Gaulding has 13 starts in the Truck series and two in XFINITY. In three Martinsville starts in Trucks, he has finished 19th, 14th, and 21st. Notably, his worst result came in superior equipment in a Kyle Busch Motorsports Tundra in 2015. Gaulding has only made two starts this year and they came in the XFINITY series. Both were on short tracks with a 13th at Bristol Motor Speedway and an 11th at Richmond International Raceway.
