New Year, New Role for Coulter
Statesville, NC (January 7, 2015) - As the New Year begins, so does a new role for NASCAR Camping World Truck series veteran Joey Coulter. Due to lack of sponsorship Coulter will be trading in his driver’s seat for a new team leadership role at GMS Racing in 2015. Coulter will take an active role in the daily operations and responsibilities at their new Statesville, NC location. This will allow him to continue to be an influential presence in the NCWTS garage throughout the season while continuing to pursue any future partnership opportunities that will put him back behind the wheel.
"My passion is still driving," said Coulter, "but without sponsorship for the upcoming season I've had to find another way to be involved in the sport I love so much. Racing for a family run team early on has given me the tools to take on this position at GMS Racing while we continue to look for future partnerships that will put me back out on the track with GMS Racing."
Coulter will not be hanging up his helmet completely. He plans to continue racing with Coulter Motorsports, a family owned race team, where he began his career. He plans to run several late model races this year at both dirt and asphalt venues with dates to be announced at later time. Most recently he competed in the Redeye 100 at New Smyrna Speedway this past weekend. Fans will still be able to follow along with his career through his various social media channels such as Twitter at www.twitter.com/joeycoulter and his Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/JoeyCoulter4.
"I am very excited to see what lies ahead for GMS Racing and hope to be celebrating in the winners circle with our drivers come February at Daytona. I encourage my fans to follow along on Twitter and Facebook to see where I will be racing next. I have some of the most loyal fans in the sport and I continue to look forward to seeing them at the track this year," said Coulter. With Daytona rapidly approaching Coulter is looking forward to diving into his new leadership role and kicking the season off with a win at Daytona.
