2014 Iowa: GMS Racing NASCAR Truck Race Recap

Joey Coulter Earns Fourth-Place Finish at Iowa Speedway

Joey Coulter collected a fourth-place finish in the American Ethanol 200 presented by Enogen at Iowa Speedway, earning his second top-five finish in nine NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) starts this season. Coulter scored the ninth-fastest time in qualifying and immediately showed the speed of the Allegiant Travel Chevrolet from the beginning of the 200-lap affair. The first caution of the night waved on Lap 40, and Coulter was called to pit road by crew chief Jeff Stankiewicz for four tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment to better handle the evolving track conditions. A fast stop by the No. 21 Allegiant Travel team earned Coulter a prime spot on the restart, securing seventh position. Coulter paced the field for the next 11 circuits around the Newton, Iowa facility before the next caution flag waved on Lap 56 due to a single truck spin. An incident on the frontstretch on Lap 63 slowed the field for the third time, and while under caution, Coulter radioed that he may have a problem with his gauges. Powering on, by Lap 70 Coulter had advanced to fifth position, settling in and running some of the fastest lap times of the night. The 24-year-old remained in the top-10 throughout the rest of the 175-mile race, and an excellent effort by his pit crew during a pit stop on Lap 128 allowed him to restart in the fifth position and ultimately take the checkered flag in fourth. This is the Miami Springs, Fla., driver 's second top-five finish of the season; his first was a fifth-place finish earned at Dover International Speedway in May. Coulter is currently ninth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship driver point standings.

Joey Coulter Quote:

“It was an all-around great weekend for GMS Racing. Our No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet was fast all weekend long, and ran up front like we have for the past few weeks. The major difference this weekend was that we put the entire race together and finished where we had been running all day. The pit stops were better at Iowa Speedway, the truck was better, and I made better decisions at the end of the race, and as a result we brought home a top-five finish.”

Spencer Gallagher Collects an 11th-Place Finish at Iowa Speedway

Spencer Gallagher and the No. 23 Allegiant Travel team earned an eleventh-place result despite being involved in a single-truck incident on Lap 55 during the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Iowa Speedway on Friday. After starting the race from the 21st spot, Gallagher reported that his blue and orange machine was "wicked tight" in the center. Crew chief Ryan “Pickle” London summoned the Las Vegas native to pit road on Lap 40 under the first caution period, and the over-the-wall crew administered a four-tire and fuel stop along with an air pressure adjustment to try and improve the handling of the Allegiant Travel Chevrolet. Trouble struck on Lap 55 when Gallagher was involved in a one-truck spin in Turn 2. The incident did not result in any damage, but the GMS Racing driver lost valuable track position. While under caution, the London-led pit crew changed four tires, and Gallagher returned to pit road the following lap for fuel. He restarted 22nd on Lap 60. Gallagher recuperated strongly, maneuvering through the field during the green-flag run, and he moved up to 14th by Lap 120. Gallagher was determined to battle his way into the “lucky dog” position and get back on the lead lap. A one-truck spin on Lap 127 slowed the field for the fourth and final time, setting up the final round of pit stops. Gallagher communicated to London that his Chevrolet was "beautiful," before he brought it in for fuel and a four-tire stop with an air pressure adjustment. The remainder of the event finished caution-free with the 23-year-old driver running in the “lucky dog” position for the remainder of the afternoon. While he never received another caution-flag period to get his lap back, Gallagher passed two additional competitors, bouncing off another lap vehicle for position, and crossed the finish line in the 11th position.

Start - 21 Finish - 11 Laps Led - 0

Spencer Gallagher Quote:

“Wow, what a weekend for my GMS Racing team. From struggling with mechanical problems to running near the top 10 in my first Iowa Speedway NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start, this is going to be a weekend to remember. My No. 23 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet was comfortable in practice, and even though we qualified a little deeper in the field, we knew what kind of truck we had and we showed it in the race. All the credit in the world goes to my Allegiant Travel team and teammate Joey Coulter for helping get me to such a good finish at Iowa Speedway.”
