Dye and the No. 43 team will compete with GMS Racing chassis no. 343 for the second time this weekend at Darlington Raceway. This chassis made its debut earlier this year at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where Daniel led five laps and finished 19th in only his second time in a truck.
The iconic Petty blue and orange colors will make an appearance on the No. 43 Race To Stop Suicide Chevrolet as a homage to Richard Petty’s 1973 STP paint scheme. This scheme dates back to the 1970’s, when Richard was in the height of his racing career. Daniel has driven the famous No. 43 on the majority of his race cars since the start of his racing career, and his throwback scheme has been a hit amongst longtime fans since it was announced to run.
|Sunoco Rookie Battle|
Dye’s 13th place result at Kansas Speedway was the fourth highest finish of the drivers competing for Sunoco Rookie of the Year honors. Looking at the leaderboard of rookie points, Daniel is currently slotted in fourth, 83 points behind leading candidate Nick Sanchez and 11 points behind Rajah Caruth in third.

“As a driver, you always hear about Darlington being tough. I’m looking forward to the challenge and will be leaning on my teammates and their experience and utilizing our sim time to make the most of our weekend. We’re going to take advantage of practice as much as we can and learn throughout the entire race with our No. 43 team at GMS Racing.”
