Joey Coulter Quote:
“The truck race at Bristol Motor Speedway is one of the most iconic on the schedule. The racing there is wilder and more close quarters than on any other track. This is going to be a good indicator of where we are with our No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet and how much progress GMS Racing has been able to make. Our intermediate program has progressed in a big way, so now we can see how much our short track program has grown too.”
