ARCA Driver Max Gutierrez Attempting Truck Series Debut at Charlotte

Part-time ARCA Menards Series competitor Max Gutierrez will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Charlotte Motor Speedway, TobyChristie.com reporter Joseph Srigley reported on Saturday (April 23).

Gutierrez will reportedly debut driving the No. 37 Chevrolet for AM Racing. AM Racing already has a relationship established with Gutierrez’s ARCA organization, Rette Jones Racing, leading to the Truck opportunity.

Moreover, during the ARCA race at Talladega Superspeedway, FOX Sports 1 broadcaster Jamie Little stated Gutierrez will compete in four Truck races this season, with the additional three to be announced at a later date.

Gutierrez has competed in seven main ARCA events in his career, scoring his career-best finish of 10th place at Talladega Superspeedway Saturday. He won the 2021 ARCA Menards Series East season opener at New Smyrna Speedway and ran full-time there last season along with NASCAR’s Peak Mexico Series.

AM Racing fields Austin Wayne Self full-time in the No. 22 while the team fields the No. 37 part-time. Logan Bearden drove No. 37 at the Truck race at Circuit of the Americas, finishing with a DNF in 28th place.

As such, Gutierrez will likely need to qualify for the Truck race at Charlotte on speed due to the lack of owners’ points for the No. 37.

Gutierrez will attempt to make his debut in the North Carolina Education Lottery on Friday, May 27 at 8:30 p.m. ET with TV coverage provided by FOX Sports 1.
