Grant Enfinger will be a full-time driver for CR7 Motorsports in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series after signing a multi-year contract.
2023 NASCAR Truck Series championship runner-up Grant Enfinger will be driving for CR7 Motorsports for the 2024 season and beyond after making a switch from GMS Racing.
Enfinger will remain in the No. 9 seat through at least 2025 as a result of the multi-year deal; however, the exact length of the contract was not made public.
The 38-year old was just one place away from taking home the 2023 Truck Series championship after finishing sixth and one spot behind Ben Rhodes in the season finale. By the end of the season, he had thirteen top tens and three victories in Gateway, Kansas and Milwaukee.
Enfinger leaves GMS Racing which shut down its operations at the conclusion of 2023 to join CR7. However, CR7 is not new to him as he drove in two ARCA Menards Series races with the team in 2023 in addition to making several Truck starts in 2021.
“I feel like we have all the right pieces in place,” said Enfinger. “With Chevrolet’s help and support, we were able to put this together and have the resources it takes to truly win races and contend for championships.
“I am expecting growing pains, but I also foresee performance from the beginning.
“I can’t say thank you enough to everyone that made this happen. Especially Codie and the entire Grant County Mulch family and everyone at Champion Power Equipment.
“I am extremely excited about this next chapter in my career and couldn’t be more happy about my decision.”
CR7 believes that Enfinger’s commitment will result in success. The #9 has only appeared in a single additional top ten in the two seasons following Enfinger’s seventh place finish in 2021 as Colby Howard marked its fourth top ten in the 2023 season opener.
“When the opportunity came along, I knew that Grant was the perfect choice,” added team owner Codie Rohrbaugh. “With our efforts to elevate our racing program in 2024, I am confident in what Grant will bring to the team.”
Enfinger replaces Colby Howard who drove the No.9 truck during the 2023 season, ending the year 21st in points with one top-five and one top-ten.
