Brett Moffitt and Sheldon Creed will continue racing for GMS Racing in 2020, the team announced Friday (Oct. 25).

In addition, Sam Mayer will compete in six events for the team in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, as well as the ARCA Showdown and ARCA Series East championships.

Moffitt has four wins, 12 top fives, and 15 top 10s this season in the team’s No. 24, while Creed has four top fives and 10 top 10s in the No. 2.

Numbers weren’t specified for each, but it seems likely each will continue in their same trucks and numbers for 2020.

“I can’t thank Mike (Beam, team president) and Mr. Gallagher (team owner) enough for the opportunity to compete full-time with GMS Racing in 2020,” Moffitt said in a team release. “It’s been awesome to work with this organization this year and we’ve been competitive each and every week. We’ve earned four wins so far this season and held a steady lead throughout the playoffs.

“Having next year locked down allows us to focus completely on competing for a championship this year. Returning with the same teammates as well will be really cool. We already know how to work together and help each other while maintaining a bit of that competitive edge. I can only imagine what we will be able to accomplish in 2020 building off the momentum from this season.”

“I feel very confident going into next season with GMS Racing,” Creed added. “I know I have the best group of people around me and the best organization to go out next year and compete for wins and hopefully the championship. I’m thankful to Mike (Beam, team president) and Maury (Gallagher, team owner) for the opportunity and continued support.

“The beginning of this season was a bit of a learning curve for me, but we found our groove and I’m excited to go out and compete for wins and build momentum for next year. It’ll be great to have my teammates back with me as well.”

Mayer, who has four wins, 11 top fives and top 10s in the K&N Pro Series East, first broke the news earlier this month of his plans with GMS Racing.

In a statement from the team, Mayer said, “I am excited to be returning to GMS Racing in 2020. We are being very aggressive with my schedule next year, and I think that will help challenge me and help me grow even more in my career.

“We are doubling the number of Gander Trucks races from what I am running in 2019 and once the ARCA series is finalized, I should be running more races than the entire truck schedule. I’ve been able to accomplish a lot this season with the support from GMS, and I can’t wait for next season.”

The team did not specify its Xfinity Series plans; it currently fields John Hunter Nemechek in the No. 23 full time.
