2014 Daytona: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Recap

Tyler Young, driver of the No. 02 AKL Insurance Group/Young's Building System's Chevrolet Silverado, made his Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway (DIS) debut in Friday night's 15th-annual NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) NextEra Energy Resources 250. Following three practice sessions over a two day period, Young posted the 17th-fastest time in all three combined sessions. When qualifying was cancelled on Friday afternoon due to rain, this time allowed the rookie driver to start on the inside of row nine for the 100-lap event.

Young held the bottom line throughout most of the NextEra Energy Resources 250, just learning the draft and "trying to read the air." The Midland, Texas-native came down pit road on Lap 22 during the competition caution for two right-side tires and fuel. When racing resumed on Lap 24, the Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender was scored 27th. Working his way back through the field, Young made his way into the 13th position before coming down pit road on Lap 52 under caution, for fuel only. Working with his spotter to find the right line, Young was hung out by the No. 39 machine and lost multiple spots. As Young was making another attempt to bring his Silverado back up the score board, the "Big One" occurred out of Turn 2 on Lap 73. The accident caused extensive damage to the Young's Motorsports machine, relegating the Texas native to a 34th-place finish.

Kyle Busch won the 15th-annual NextEra Energy Resources 250 by 0.017 seconds over Timothy Peters - the eighth closest all-time finish in the NCWTS, and the closest in series history at DIS
Friday night's NextEra Energy Resources 250 was Young's 12th career Truck Series start and first start at DIS
Starting from the 17th position, Young ran as high as 10th before getting caught up in a Lap 73 accident involving 16 trucks in Turn 2
There were four caution periods for 19 laps, and four drivers exchanged the lead eight times
Tyler Young was the fourth-highest finishing 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender
The Young's Motorsports team will return to action on Saturday, March 29th, for the Kroger 250 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway

Quote - Tyler Young:
"I learned a lot tonight and ultimately tried to avoid the 'Big One', but it didn't work out in my favor - I guess that's what you have to expect when you come to a superspeedway. I can't thank everyone enough for working hard and getting this truck here; it was fast and we had a really good run tonight. This is the first new chassis from this Young's Motorsports team so it's a true testament of what we are capable of. We will regroup and head to Martinsville where we can hopefully redeem ourselves."
