– Season Outlook: The saying of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” seems to be the mantra surrounding Grant Enfinger and the No. 23 GMS Racing team. Entering his seventh full-time season competing in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series, Enfinger looks to be a threat to win the championship once again in his second year back with the team.
Calling the shots atop the pit box this year will once again be the well-respected crew chief in Jeff Hensley, who’s relationship with Grant dates back to 2017. Hensley’s ability to work well with Enfinger has been proven time and time again, and after rejoining the team midway through last season, the two were able to hit the ground running and contend for top-fives and wins on a weekly basis.
Enfinger’s truck will look familiar to last year, as Champion Power Equipment will serve as Enfinger’s anchor partner for the majority of the 2023 season once again. The driver/partner pairing has been unmistakeable for years, showcasing one of the longest lasting partnerships in the tour. Champion Power Equipment has been associated with Enfinger since 2014, increasingly growing their partnership immensely over the years.
– Chassis History/Info: For the second straight year, Grant Enfinger and the No. 23 team will debut a new Chevrolet Silverado RST in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway. The event marks the first time that GMS Racing chassis no. 146 will hit the track.
– Previous Daytona Winner: Enfinger knows a thing or two about finding victory lane at the World Center of Racing. Throughout his career, he has been fortunate to win multiple races at the storied facility – including two ARCA Menards Series wins (2014 & 2015) as well as a NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series win in 2020. Grant also has a Truck Series win at Talladega Superspeedway, Daytona’s sister track, which came in 2016, driving for GMS Racing.

– From The Drivers Seat: The new season brings upon a new set of opportunities. You’ve got some new teammates at GMS Racing, but for the most your core group will stay the same. Talk about some of your goals for 2023.
“I’ve got a couple new teammates this year with Rajah and Daniel. I’ve know both of them for about a year now and we all respect each other. I know we will work well together. The core group on our No. 23 Chevy stayed the same, and I feel we are in the best shape we’ve ever been in entering the season.
Super speedway racing is something I always look forward to, and our GMS guys have put in the time to build us a very nice truck for this year. It is especially great to continue the long relationship with Champion Power Equipment and we are all pumped to get the season started. I can’t thank GMS Racing and Chevrolet enough for putting in the hard work over the off season, and having confidence in our team. As a team we are looking to take advantage of the great opportunity that we have this year, and not leave anything on the table. It all starts Friday night.”
