Statesville, N.C. - GMS Racing has signed 17-year-old Kaz Grala to drive its No. 33 Chevrolet full-time in the 2017 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Grala, a native of Massachusetts, is an experienced late-model competitor. He ran a limited Truck Series schedule in 2016 with a best finish of seventh in his nine starts, that coming in New Hampshire.

"I am beyond thankful to have an opportunity with GMS Racing to run full-time," Grala said. "This organization has been on a steep rise the past couple years."

Joining Grala will be veteran crew chief Jerry Baxter, who has spent the last four seasons at Kyle Busch Motorsports.

"I enjoy helping young drivers get started in this series and developing their talent," said Baxter, who has nine career wins as a Truck Series crew chief. "I saw what Kaz accomplished in the few races he ran last season."

Grala will be teamed with 2016 champion Johnny Sauter in the GMS stable next season. The organization also is planning to run Spencer Gallagher full-time in the XFINITY Series.

Grala, who will run for Rookie of the Year, is currently an honor-roll high school senior at Worcester Academy in Massachusetts. He will celebrate his 18th birthday on Dec. 29 and has plans to attend college next fall.
