Jack Wood is receiving the call-up to a full-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule. On Thursday, GMS Racing announced Wood will run the rest of the 2021 Truck season in the #24 Chevrolet Silverado beginning at Nashville Superspeedway on 19 June.

“Driver of the No. 24 Silverado has a nice ring to it, Jack Wood,” posted the team on social media“JW in the No. 24 for the remainder of the NASCAR Trucks schedule beginning next week at Nashville!”

Wood made his Truck début at Circuit of the Americas in May, where he finished twenty-eighth in the #24. He had a stronger run the following week at Charlotte Motor Speedway in fifteenth.

Prior to the news, Wood was running the bulk of the ARCA Menards Series schedule for GMS; he initially planned to contest the full season before the Trucks began clashing with ARCA events. Wood joined GMS for 2021 after spending the last two seasons in the ARCA Menards Series West for his family-owned team. In five of seven 2021 ARCA starts to date, he has three top tens with a best finish of fourth at Kansas.

The #24 began the 2021 season as Raphaël Lessard‘s truck until he was forced out of the seat by funding troubles in early May. Ryan Reed ran the Darlington event in the truck, while Cup Series driver Chase Elliott will do so this Saturday at Texas before Wood takes over for Nashville and beyond. After ten races, the #24 has two top tens—both by Lessard—with a best run of third at Bristol Dirt.
