JOEY COULTER QUOTE:

 

With only two NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races left, Phoenix (International Raceway) is going to be a really important race for our team. We are in a tight battle for fifth in the championship point standings and our goal is to win a race before this season is over. Our No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet Silverado team has some pretty solid momentum from Texas Motor Speedway and I think we are going to have a great opportunity ahead of us in Phoenix. It's a really fun and fast race track that always creates lots of action and excitement.

Spencer Gallagher Quote:

 

I cant wait to get to Phoenix International Raceway in our Kingman Chevrolet-Buick / Allegiant Travel Chevrolet Silverado. I am proud to have Kingman Chevrolet-Buick on the hood as they have been my supporter for years.

 

 

 

From my experience in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West, Phoenix is a handling track where its crucial to have a truck that works well during the race. I know Harold Holly and the GMS Racing guys will give me exactly what I need heading into the race.

 

 

 

Brandon Jones

 

No. 33 Russell / ColdZone Refrigeration Chevrolet Silverado

 

 

 

This Week's GMS Racing Chevrolet Silverado at Phoenix International Raceway ... Brandon Jones will pilot chassis No. 19 at Phoenix International Raceway on Friday night, prepared by crew chief Shane Huffman. This Chevrolet Silverado is brand new to the GMS Racing stable, but was previously raced at Richard Childress Racing (RCR).

 

 

 

Jones Series Debut at Phoenix International Raceway Brandon Jones will make his first career start at Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this weekend in the Lucas Oil 150. Jones has made one start at Phoenix International Raceway in November 2013 with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West (NKNPSW), where he raced to a 17th-place finish. The Lucas Oil 150 will mark his fifth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start of the 2014 season for Jones, and his second appearance with GMS Racing. The 17-year-old finished fourth in his only other one-mile NASCAR Camping World Truck Series track at Dover (Del.) International Speedway earlier this season.

 

 

 

History at Phoenix International Raceway ... In November 2013, Jones made his only career start at Phoenix International Raceway in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West. Jones finished 17th after a qualifying effort of 15th-place in the 50-lap event.

In the Rearview Mirror: Martinsville Speedway Brandon Jones debut with GMS Racing at Martinsville Speedway was spoiled by a late-race incident that relegated him to a 32nd-place finish. The Atlanta, Ga., native ran inside the top five and consistently ran inside the top 15 throughout the event before the incident occurred. The Russell / ColdZone Refrigeration team looks to carry the speed and performance from Virginias half-mile to the Arizona desert mile.

 

 

 

2014 Season Review: In addition to three NCWTS starts this season, Jones competed full-time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in 2014, finishing fourth in the championship point standings and earning his first-career win at Iowa Speedway in Newton in August. Jones also made three starts in the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA) Racing Series, collecting three top-five finishes, including two wins and a pole award. Both of his victories in the ARCA Racing Series came on short tracks at Winchester (Ind.) Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

 

 

 

BRANDON JONES QUOTE:

 

Phoenix International Raceway is a fun place to race, and Im looking forward to getting on-track this weekend. Its one of the most unique tracks on the NASCAR Camping World truck Series schedule with the newer surface and the banked dogleg in the backstretch.

 

 

 

I feel confident that Shane (Huffman) and the GMS Racing team have a great No. 33 Russell / ColdZone Refrigeration Chevrolet prepared this week. Its a short race, so well have to put the right pit strategy together to maintain track position all night. We had good speed at Martinsville Speedway and were focused on continuing that performance into this weekend.
