Turner Scott Motorsports (TSM) announced today that the team has named Chris Carrier as crew chief of the team's fourth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) entry. Carrier, a NASCAR Sprint Cup, Nationwide and NCWTS veteran, has served as crew chief for 329 events throughout the three series, earning five wins, 24 top fives, 52 top 10s and seven poles. Carrier's most recent work in the NCWTS includes serving as crew chief on the No. 30 last season, leading Nelson Piquet Jr. to two wins, nine top fives, 15 top 10s and four poles. The Tennessee native earned his first career win with Harry Gant in 1994 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. The team will run a limited schedule for the remaining portion of the year with Ben Kennedy and Cale Gale behind the wheel.
Carrier and his TSM team will be at Bristol Motor Speedway Wednesday night providing support for Ben Kennedy Racing's No. 96 entry in the Titan Roof 150. Carrier will also be on the pit box and calling the shots for the No. 96 at Iowa, Chicago, Martinsville and Homestead-Miami Speedway.
"I look forward to the opportunity to compete again in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series," said Carrier. "I enjoy working with young talent, and I think Ben Kennedy and Cale Gale have what it takes to be successful in this sport. We have a great team behind us at Turner Scott Motorsports, and I am looking forward to getting to work and joining the truck series this week at Bristol."
