The 24-year-old restarted on Lap 28 in the 10th-postion. The Miami Springs, Fla., native maintained a top-13 running position until the Lap 71 caution period. After a routine yellow-flag pit stop for four tires, fuel and a chassis adjustment, Coulter restarted eighth on Lap 75. Moments later, on Lap 79 Coulter made an unscheduled four-tire pit stop under green-flag conditions for a reported vibration.
After falling as far back as the 27th in the running order and going one lap down to the leader, the Allegiant Travel driver persevered and raced his way back onto 21st- place by Lap 100. Under caution, on Lap 101 the GMS Racing team serviced the No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet Silverado with four tires and fuel. Coulter was unable to catch a break with 33 laps remaining, the coveted “Lucky Dog” pass for the lead lap just out of his grasp. He brought home a 23rd-place finish in his season ending race with GMS Racing. Coulter finished the season seventh in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver championship point standings with three top-five and 10 top-10 finishes.

Joey Coulter Quote:
“It is always tough to end the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season on a not-so-good note, but at the same time a little bad luck at the end of the year cannot ruin a successful season for GMS Racing, either. I’m really proud of everyone at GMS Racing and especially the guys on the No. 21 Allegiant Travel Chevrolet Silverado team. Everyone worked hard and we made a lot of progress throughout the year. I think we have got ourselves in a good spot going into 2015 season.”
