Quick Facts: 

Series: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series

Race: 21 of 22 — November 7th, 2014

Driver: Gray Gaulding

Truck: No.20 Gemini Southern / Krispy Kreme Chevrolet

Owner’s Points Standings: 14th (-190)

Track: Phoenix International Raceway

Race: Lucas Oil 150

Distance: 126 Laps / 126 Miles

Avondale, Arizona (November 8th, 2014) Gray Gaulding and the No.20 Gemini Southern / Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Chevrolet Silverado team faced adversity and overcame obstacles throughout the weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. Gaulding raced his way inside the top-10 running as high as 8th, before a loose lug nut on a lap 84 green flag pit stop, forced Gaulding back down pit road loosing precious track position, which he ultimately was unable to subjugate when the 150 lap race was shortened due to a power outage.

Gaulding bouncing back and forth between the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West (NKNPSW) and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) schedules on Thursday had to quickly readjust between the two series, as well as learn how the NCWTS get around the 1.0-mile Phoenix International Raceway. After finishing second in the NKNPSW season finale on Thursday evening, Gaulding had a buzz of excitement going into Friday night’s Lucas Oil 150. After qualifying just outside the top-10 and knowing how the track would change as the day fell into night under the lights, Gaulding along with crew chief Chris Rice set their eyes on the prize.

After an hour delay for a power outage in the area and a full moon setting over the Phoenix International Raceway, the NCWTS field did not receive the green flag until shortly after 8:00PM.  Unfortunately, before the NCWTS drivers were able to complete lap 1, the first caution flag waved for a wreck on the front stretch.  After a lengthy clean up, the field would finally receive the green flag for the second time at lap 18. Several more quick caution periods followed, before the field finally got racing at lap 46.  On lap 84, crew chief Chris Rice brought Gray and the No.20 Gemini Southern / Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Chevrolet Silverado down pit road for four tires, fuel, and track bar adjustment. A loose lug nut would be a costly mistake when Gaulding had to make an unscheduled pit stop once again, under green, loosing multiple laps. When the fifth caution flag flew at lap 99, Gaulding was scored 21st three laps down. After taking the wave around, Gaulding made up one of those three laps, restarting in the 19th spot on lap 110. Gaulding would pit for a final time at lap 115, hoping for enough cautions to get himself back on the lead lap, but after a second power outage at lap 126, NASAR officials called the race complete and Gaulding was scored with a 17th place finish.

From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “The guys on this NTS Motorsports team worked hard all weekend turning this truck around. We unloaded and just weren’t where we needed to be, but the truck really came to life after that first pit stop. Chris Rice made it even better on the last stop, but we just didn’t have the track position to show for it.  It took me some time to adjust from the K&N car, but we learned a lot on how to attack this race in 2015.”

On top of Box with Crew Chief Chris Rice: “I’m proud to be a part of this team, we are improving week in and week out. Gray was racing inside the top-10 and there isn’t a doubt in my mind they we couldn’t have finished there. We will address the mistakes made and learn from them, this is a strong team and we’re right on the breaking point of being a contender week after week.”

Quick Facts: 

Series: NASCAR K&N Pro Series West

Race: 14 of 14 — November 6, 2014

Driver: Gray Gaulding

Car: No.20 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Chevrolet Impala

Track: Phoenix International Raceway

Race: Casino Arizona 100

Distance: 103 Laps / 103 Miles

Avondale, Arizona (November 7, 2014) Gray Gaulding and the No.20 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Chevrolet team made the trip west to race in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West (NKNPSW) season finale at Phoenix International Raceway.

Gray Gaulding, a previous winner at Phoenix Int’l Raceway and young veteran in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series, had his eye set on returning to victory lane. Gaulding turned fifty-one laps in Thursday’s practice session for the NKNPSW, posting the seventh quickest time.

Gaulding focused on his two-lap qualifying effort as he both the NKNPSW and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) practices. With a lap time of 27.506, Gaulding would line his Krispy Kreme Doughnuts Chevrolet on the outside of row three.

When the green flag dropped shortly after 5:45PM Mountain Standard Time, Gaulding immediately went into conservation mode saving his tires and equipment. Gaulding would never fall lower than seventh and ran the majority inside the top-5. After saving his equipment for over seventy laps, the restraints were lifted and crew chief Doug Howe said “get after it boy.” With several late race cautions, he knew he needed at least a ten-lap run to make it happen. A green and white checkered flag is not what he wanted. After racing two and three wide Gaulding came out in second.

From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: “What a night! I thought we were going to be able to repeat last year’s win, but we just weren’t fast enough on the short runs. Doug Howe, Matt Ross, and all the guys on the K&N team worked hard every day since Dover preparing this car and it showed. I felt like I could do anything with it. We’re all clicking right now and going to take this into 2015 as we go after the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Championship. Now I have to shift gears and prepare for the truck race tomorrow night.”

On top of Box with Crew Chief Doug Howe: “I’m proud of this entire team. Everyone works just as hard as the next guy and they want to win just as bad as Gray. It is going happen. We are working together too well for it not to. We’re going to go into this off season building and moving forward. And we’ll fire off in February right where we left off tonight.”

With two practice sessions on Friday, Gaulding worked with crew chief Chris Rice on his truck’s turn in the middle and it’s drive off the corners. Gaulding posted the second quickest time during Friday’s opening fifty minute practice session, only 0.001 off the fastest time. After a thirty minute break, Gaulding and the No.20 team were back on track, for the final eighty-five minute practice session. Gaulding posted the tenth quickest time, after turning forty-six laps during Friday’s final practice session.

In round one of two knockout qualifying rounds, a thirty minute session, Gaulding posted the seventh quickest time, and was part of the top twelve drivers transferring to the final round. In the final round, Gaulding posted the sixth quickest time and would start on the outside of row three, for the afternoon’s Kroger 200 at Martinsville Speedway.

When the green flag dropped for the 16th annual Kroger 200 shortly after 1:40pm, Gaulding slid back into seventh spot, as the field got single file. With an early caution, Gaulding restarted seventh on lap seven, and was able to move inside the Top-5 at lap 13, before the second caution flag flew at lap twenty-seven. The green flag was displayed once again at lap thirty-four, with Gaulding restarting fifth, and he was able to move into fourth at lap thirty-seven, third on lap thirty-nine and into the second spot at lap forty-four.

The third caution flag flew at lap forty-five and when the green flag was displayed once again at lap fifty-two, Gaulding restarted second on the outside lane and in got up into the marbles in turn one and slid back outside the Top-25. Another caution flew at lap fifty-five and Crew Chief, Chris Rice decided to bring Gray down pit road for four tires and fuel.

The fifth caution flag flew just past halfway, at lap 101 of 200. As the leaders pitted, Gaulding stayed out and would restart fourth at lap one hundred seven.

The sixth caution flag flew at lap one hundred and thirty-seven, and Gaulding was able to maintain his track position inside the Top-10, before pitting for the second time for four tires, fuel, and chassis adjustment. The green flag dropped again at lap one hundred and forty-nine, and after several more cautions, Gray was able to move back inside the Top-15 for the second time of the day. During the closing laps, a left rear tire went flat and Gaulding would have to pit a third and final time with less than forty laps to go and would work his way back towards the front of the field.

From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding: ”We was able to show that we have the speed to run upfront today and I feel like we passed more cars than anybody. Chris Rice and all the guys at NTS Motorsports gave me a great truck that just had great speed, from the time we unloaded on Friday. I can’t wait to get back in the truck in a few weeks at Phoenix.”

On top of Box with Crew Chief Chris Rice: “Everyone at NTS Motorsports did a phenomenal job this weekend, both Gray and Brennan did a terrific job and it shows all the hard work that everyone has been putting in back at the shop, at the track, and on pit road is paying off.
