Daniel Dye gets new crew chief in Truck Series

NASCAR Truck Series driver Daniel Dye will have a new crew chief for the upcoming race at Kansas Speedway.

Blake Bainbridge will take over crew chief duties for the No. 43 Chevrolet Silverado after Travis Sharpe and the team amicably parted ways according to a GMS Racing team release.

“You know, I’m really looking forward to taking on a new challenge with all the talented people at GMS Racing. I haven’t really known Daniel all that well, but from looking at how well he was able to run in ARCA last year, I can tell that he is hungry to prove himself. Having the chance to guide a rookie is something that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed during my career, so working Daniel is going to be fun. I’m thankful for the opportunity and am ready to make the most out of this season with our No. 43 team.” remarked Bainbridge.

Though seven races this season Dye is 21st in points with a best finish of 16th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“We are always looking at the ways we can improve our program and believe that bringing Blake onto the team will do just that. Blake is well-known in the garage area and has a ton of talent, so he will be a perfect fit for Daniel as he continues to learn the ropes of the Truck Series in his rookie year. We are appreciative of everything that Travis has done for our organization in helping build our third truck team, and definitely want to wish him the best moving forward in his career.” stated Tom Ackerman, Technical Director for GMS Racing.

The Truck Series race at Kanas Speedway will take place on Saturday, May 6th at 8 pm ET.
