Adding to the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) lineup, GMS Racing announced the addition of Cody Coughlin to the Statesville-based team.

Climbing back behind the wheel of a Chevrolet for the first time since 2013 in Late Models, Coughlin will drive the No. 2 JEGS Chevrolet Silverado for his second full-time NCWTS season. With 35 NCWTS starts under his belt already, including his first full-time season last year, Coughlin is poised to have his best NCWTS season yet. Ending 2017 with a career-best finish of third at ISM Raceway (formerly Phoenix Raceway), the 22-year-old has momentum on his side heading into his second full-time season. Looking to add veteran knowledge to Coughlin’s sophomore campaign, crew chief Jerry Baxter will call the shots atop the box this year for the No. 2 team.

Justin Haley will once again pilot the No. 24 Chevrolet Silverado in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) in 2018. Long-time sponsor Fraternal Order of Eagles will also rejoin the group as a primary sponsor throughout the season.

The 18-year-old returns to the team following a strong rookie season in which he earned three top-fives and 12 top-10 finishes in 21 starts. He also captured his first-career NCWTS pole award at Texas Motor Speedway in November, setting a new track qualifying record and becoming the youngest pole winner in track history. Haley, who won the ARCA Racing Series event at Talladega Superspeedway and contended for the win in his NCWTS debut at the same track, will make his first start at Daytona International Speedway. In addition, Haley has yet to make a start at Atlanta Motor Speedway, but earned an average finish of 10.5 in eight 1.5-mile starts in 2017.

With about 15 laps to go in the 32nd Annual Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals it looked as if 2018 was the year that Kyle Larson would finally score a Golden Driller of his own.

His friends like Rico Abreu and Christopher Bell had already won the Chili Bowl, but he hadn’t. But with 10 laps to go, fate decided it had other plans. Larson’s engine went up in smoke, and so too did his Chili Bowl dreams. Bell went by and went on to score the win in his favorite race for the second year in a row. Larson finished 19th due to the engine failure. Behind Bell by about a second and a half finished two-time Chili Bowl champion Rico Abreu.

Even though there are still three months before the drop of the first green flag for the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season, Timmy Solomito is eager to hit the track again.

And if his last two years of results show anything, Solomito is going to be a major threat for the championship in 2018. The Islip, New York, driver, who has frequented Victory Lane in the last two years, will be entering his fifth season of full-time competition on the tour. The season will also be his fourth driving for Eric Sanderson and the Flamingo Motorsports team -- a combination that has been successful right from their first race together.
