GMS Racing gains Grant Enfinger, uncertain on Chase Purdy and Tyler Ankrum

According to GMS Racing President Mike Beam Chase Purdy and his backers haven’t committed to 2022 as of yet. Zane Smith is undecided as well. One driver who definitely won’t return is Sheldon Creed: he has already been announced to run a full-time NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule for Richard Childress Racing. As for Tyler Ankrum, the likelihood of the LiUNA!-sponsored driver continuing with the team doesn’t appear to be great.

“I think he’s going to go do something else,” Beam told Frontstretch. Any potential plans for Ankrum in 2022 have not been revealed to this point.

Beam also told Frontstretch that he does not currently know how many teams GMS Racing will field in the Camping World Truck Series in 2022. Two are confirmed. The team’s 2022 NASCAR Cup Series plans also remain unclear.
