GMS Will Not Field NXS Entry

GMS Racing will not field a NASCAR Xfinity Series entry in 2020, the team announced in a statement by team president Mike Beam on Thursday.

John Hunter Nemechek competed in the series, driving the No. 23 Chevrolet, for the team in 2019 and finished seventh in the standings.

"We have decided that in the best interest of the organization we will put our complete focus on our Gander Trucks and ARCA Racing Series programs in 2020," Beam said. We can’t thank John Hunter (Nemechek) and everyone that has been involved in our Xfinity effort over the past four years enough for their hard work and dedication to the organization. We wish John Hunter (Nemechek) the best in his future endeavors."

Nemechek ended the season also racing in the final three Monster Energy Cup Series events for Front Row Motorsports in the No. 36 Ford.
