Daniel Dye Joining MHR for 2024

Daniel Dye will move to McAnally-Hilgemann Racing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2024, MHR announced Sept. 27.

Dye will continue to drive the No. 43, which he currently pilots for GMS Racing.

GMS is closing its doors at the end of the 2023 season.

“We are excited to have Daniel join MHR and be part of our continued growth forward,” team owner Bill McAnally said in a release. “We have worked with Daniel in the ARCA Series at Portland [International Raceway] where we won the pole and had a great top-five finish. We’re all committed to putting in the efforts and see the same results for our No. 43 team starting in 2024 and beyond.”

Added Dye, “I am excited to finally announce we’ll be racing with McAnally–Hilgemann Racing in 2024. I’m looking forward to working alongside everyone at MHR and go run up front and compete. I learned so much this year at GMS Racing and looking forward to using that knowledge next season and beyond in my career. I can’t wait to get to Daytona [International Speedway] in February and get the new season underway.”

MHR currently fields the Nos. 19 and 35 in the series for Christian Eckes and Jake Garcia, respectively. Their statuses for 2024 have not yet been revealed, so it’s unclear if Dye will be in a third truck for the team or if the No. 43 will replace an existing entry.

In 2023, his rookie Truck season, Dye has a best finish of 11th at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.

Eckes has three wins in 2023 for MHR, plus nine top fives and 12 top 10s, currently in contention for the series title. Garcia has two top fives and eight top 10s in his first mostly full-time season, skipping only Daytona, where Chase Elliott earned a top 10 for the team.
