STATESVILLE, N.C. — GMS Racing announced today that 17-year-old driver Daniel Dye will return to the organization in 2022 and compete for a championship in the ARCA Menards Series.

Dye joined GMS Racing midway through the 2021 season and found immediate success. Berlin Raceway was the site of Dye’s first career ARCA victory, with the No. 21 collecting four top-five finishes and one General Tire Pole Award.

“I couldn’t be more excited to return to GMS Racing and compete for a championship next year,” said Dye. “Everyone at GMS does such a great job putting fast race cars on the track, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to drive one of their Chevrolets.”
