Daniel Dye will move into the Craftsman Truck Series next season as driver of the GMS Racing No. 43 Chevrolet.

Dye finished second in points and won the Rookie of the Year award in the ARCA Menards Series this season. He had 13 top five and 17 top 10 finishes. In 2021, Dye ran a limited ARCA schedule and won at Berlin Raceway.

The Truck Series, now known as the Camping World Truck Series, will be sponsored by Craftsman next season.

“I am really thankful for the opportunity to drive the No. 43 Chevrolet Silverado RST for GMS Racing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2023,” Dye said in a team release. “GMS Racing, their partners and staff, are the best in the business, and to drive their Chevy trucks next season is something that I’ve dreamed of for a long time. I’m counting down the days to coming back to Daytona to race under the lights.”

Dye, an 18-year-old resident of Deland, Fla., began racing quarter-midgets at New Smyrna Speedway near Daytona Beach. He moved to Late Model racing, where he still competes.

Dye will make his first Truck start at Daytona International Speedway Feb. 17.
