Black’s Tire – a long-time sponsor in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series — will back David Gilliland Racing and Tanner Gray in four NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events this season, beginning with the season-opener at Daytona.
In addition to Daytona, Gray, who enters his third full-time season in the series, will drive the Black’s Tire sponsored No. 15 at Martinsville (April 7) and Richmond (August 13), as well as one additional race, yet to be determined.
“It’s really exciting to team up with Ricky Benton and Black’s Tire as well as their partner dealers for multiple races this season,” Gray said. “I’m looking forward to kicking off the 2022 season with the familiar yellow and blue colors aboard the No. 15 in Daytona. Hopefully, we can keep the truck upfront and be a factor when it counts at the end.”
Gray, a native of Artesia, New Mexico, will have veteran crew chief Jerry Baxter calling the shots on his No. 15 Ford F-150, after Baxter moved over from Richard Petty Motorsports’ NASCAR Cup Series effort.
“We are extremely excited to continue our long-lasting partnership with David Gilliland and DGR,” said Ricky Benton II, Black’s Tire VP Sales and Marketing. “We look forward to marketing stronger together in 2022. David runs a first-class operation and with the addition of Tanner Gray behind the wheel, it will be a strong combination.”
