Mooresville, NC (July 5, 2017) – Premium Motorsports welcomes Gray Gaulding to the seat of the No.55 Toyota Camry for this weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway. Gaulding is anticipating getting back behind the wheel in Kentucky for the “Quaker State 400”. 

 

 

Along for the ride on the No.55 is #CheckIt4Andretti to help raise awareness about colon cancer, which John Andretti, beloved former NASCAR/Indy driver, is currently battling. He was diagnosed earlier this year with Stage 4 colon cancer. He underwent surgery and he and his doctors are optimistic that he can be cured with continued treatments. Andretti has kept his spirits up by starting the #CheckIt4Andretti campaign to get others to schedule a lifesaving colonoscopy.

When Andretti is not receiving treatments, you can find him at the track helping his son, Jarett Andretti with his racing career. Whether he is working on the car or calling the shots as his crew chief, Andretti isn’t letting his cancer stop him from doing what he loves.

Gray Gaulding on Kentucky Speedway & Driving for Premium Motorsports:

“First, I’m excited about my relationship with Premium Motorsports. Really excited to race for everyone at the shop here and Jay (Robinson) especially for giving me this opportunity. I like Kentucky a lot, although I haven’t been there in a while. I tested there in a truck when I was 15 with Kyle Busch but the track wasn’t paved then so I’m looking forward to the speeds and how different the track is compared to when I was there when I was 15. Overall, I’m just excited about getting back in a race car. I’ve been out for a couple of weeks, but thanks to Jay (Robinson) and everybody here at Premium for giving me the opportunity to get back in the car, have some fun and hopefully we’ll have this relationship for a long time.
