Joey Coulter will remain with GMS Racing for the 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season. He won’t be the driver, however.

The Statesville, N.C.-based team announced Thursday that Coulter, who drove the full 22-race schedule in a GMS truck last season, has been named the company’s team relationships coordinator, effectively immediately. The organization plans to field at least one truck in 2015, but a driver has not been named.

Coulter, 24, began his Truck Series career in 2011 with Richard Childress Racing where he spent two seasons and earned one win — in August 2012 at Pocono Raceway.

Coulter spent all of 2013 in a truck fielded by Kyle Busch Motorsports, but was released by the organization after just one season.

Now, a season after collecting 10 top-10 finishes on the way to a seventh-place points finish, it’s time for an altogether new challenge.

"I am excited to continue my relationship with GMS Racing," Coulter, a native of Miami Springs, Fla., said in a GMS team release. "Unfortunately, due to a lack of sponsorship, I will not be in a truck this season.

"Taking on a new position with GMS allows me to continue my involvement in the racing community and also stay involved as a driver with my family’s dirt racing program. So I get the best of both worlds."
