Gray will run 10 races with the No. 19 team. Joe Graf Jr. and William Sawalich are also slated to run races later this year.
  • JGR AT DOVER: Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) has a successful history at Dover. In 112 starts, the team has claimed 14 victories with seven different drivers.

From the Driver’s Seat:

Taylor Gray: “I feel pretty confident going into Dover. I’ve have some good laps there and have seen success, so the track isn’t brand new to me. JGR has been really good here in the past, so we feel prepared and are hoping for a good finish this weekend.”
