Tanner Gray Return to TRICON Garage for 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series

Tanner Gray Return to TRICON Garage: Tanner Gray is set to continue his role as the full-time driver of the No. 15 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro for TRICON Garage in the 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, as officially announced by the organization on Thursday.

Hailing from Artesia, New Mexico, Gray, a four-year veteran of the series, is the grandson of Johnny Gray, a prominent businessman and part owner of TRICON Garage alongside David Gilliland and industry veteran Kevin Ray.

Expressing his gratitude, Gray stated, “I am grateful to be back at TRICON for another year in 2024 with my guys on the No. 15 truck. I really feel like going into next year we will be better, more prepared, and have a greater understanding of what we need to do to execute. My biggest focus is on making sure I am getting better every day, and I am excited for what lies ahead.”

The 24-year-old driver has been associated with TRICON Garage, formerly known as David Gilliland Racing (DGR), since 2019, initially competing part-time in the ARCA Menards Series and NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for the organization.
