On Monday, GMS Racing made what amounts to a game-changing announcement for three independent NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series teams.

In a press release, it was revealed that GMS and their subsidiary GMS Fabrication, have reached technical alliances with Jordan Anderson Racing, Niece Motorsports and AM Racing for the 2019 Truck Series season.

This move will help bolster the Chevrolet Silverado stable of teams in the Truck Series for this upcoming season.

“We have been very fortunate to have success in the racing industry and it gives us an opportunity to work with up and coming teams to provide technical support and guidance,” said Mike Beam, president of GMS Racing. “Obviously if a GMS team can’t win, we would love to see one of our partners in Victory Lane with Chevrolet.”

Anderson, who has made a name for himself through a hard-nosed old-school approach, will finally see a reprieve in 2019. Sure, he’ll still work more than the average driver in the Truck Series, but Anderson will finally have some support in his efforts to field fast No. 3 trucks.

“To have the technical alliance with GMS Racing, and direction of Mike Beam and his entire group in place moving forward into 2019, we’ve been able to make great strides in improving our trucks and the quality of our operation as a whole over the off-season,” said team owner and driver of the No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado, Jordan Anderson. “For a small team like ours, the amount of help that we have gotten from the GMS fab shop in hanging new bodies and updating our chassis, along with their direction on setups and builds, is going to play a substantial role in the upswing in performance that we are aiming towards for this season and beyond.”

Anderson scored two top-10 finishes in the first season driving for his own race team, he will look to best those totals this upcoming season.

Niece Motorsports has three top-10 finishes in the team’s history in the Truck Series, which spans back to 2016.

AM Racing has been a part-time team in the Truck Series since 2016, but they have scored a top-five and four top-10 finishes in 28 starts.

The press release also stated that GMS Racing will have a technical alliance with KBR Development in the ARCA Racing Series.
