JOEY COULTER QUOTE:
"I am really looking forward to turning some laps around Gateway Motorsports Park. It is a new track for me and it is one that I have always wanted to race on. I think it is going to be a really exciting race for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series because there are only a few drivers in the series that have ever been to the track before. Coming off of another top 10 run at Texas Motor Speedway, I am really confident that we are going to carry a lot of momentum into this weekend’s race and for the weeks to come. The GMS Racing No. 21 guys are working hard to develop new setups for this Chevrolet nose and they are making really good progress and getting us closer to the front every week.”
