UPDATE: MARCH 26, 2024

GEARWRENCH is adding a fourth race of primary sponsorship for Corey Heim and Sam Hunt Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season, the organization confirmed in a ‘Race Advance’ on Monday (March 26).

Heim will return to the seat of the No. 26 GEARWRENCH Toyota GR Supra in the April 6 event at Martinsville Speedway, a half-mile paperclip in which the Marietta, Georgia-native has won at in the NASCAR Truck Series.

Earlier this year, the company announced a three-race sponsorship for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series regular with Sam Hunt Racing, in which the No. 26 would carry the GEARWRENCH colors at Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Richmond.

This year, in his two Xfinity Series starts with Sam Hunt Racing, Heim has recorded a single top-15 result at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. One week later, at Phoenix Raceway, Heim recorded the best-ever start for the organization, qualifying his Toyota Supra in third place.

At this time, according to the schedule portion of his website, Martinsville will serve as the fourth start in a nine-race NASCAR Xfinity Series campaign with Sam Hunt Racing in 2024, which will include events at Texas (April 13), Iowa (June 15), Loudon (June 22), Nashville (June 29), and Kansas (September 28).


ORIGINAL STORY: FEBRUARY 22, 2024

Corey Heim and Sam Hunt Racing have landed a primary sponsorship partner for three NASCAR Xfinity Series races this season. GEARWRENCH will serve as the primary for the No. 26 Toyota GR Supra beginning at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 2nd.

The black and orange colors will return at Phoenix Raceway on March 9, and Richmond Raceway on March 30.

Back on January 10, Sam Hunt Racing announced the addition of Heim, but at the time had only announced that he would drive in the event at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The team at the time stated that the additional races on Heim’s schedule would be set at a later date.

Now, we have a total of three of Heim’s 2024 NASCAR Xfinity Series races that have been revealed.

Heim, 21, competed in four NASCAR Xfinity Series events for Sam Hunt Racing in 2023, and he scored a best finish of 10th, which came at Darlington Raceway in the spring. In the two races where Heim’s car didn’t suffer a mechanical failure, the Georgia native scored top-15s.

In addition to his part-time NASCAR Xfinity Series role with Sam Hunt Racing, and his role as the reserve driver for LEGACY MOTOR CLUB and 23XI Racing, Heim has reprised his role as the full-time driver for TRICON Garage’s No. 11 Toyota Tundra for the 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season.
