Ridgeway, Va. (March 30, 2014) The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Kroger 250 was rained out on Saturday afternoon and resulted in a Sunday doubleheader with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Martinsville Speedway. Tyler Young, who was making his second start at the Ridgeway, Va. track, was optimistic heading into the 250-lap event. Starting from the 23rd position, Young battled his way through traffic early and was sitting in the 22nd position when the second caution flag of the afternoon was displayed for a spin in Turn 2. As Young was trying to get caught up to pit, the 35 truck checked-up in front of him, causing contact and leaving the No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado with extensive damage on the front-end. The Young's Motorsports team made numerous trips down pit road to fix the damage and eventually went behind pit wall to replace the radiator. Unfortunately, the power steering would dissipate and sidelined Young for the remainder of the 131.5-mile event, resulting in a 31st-place finish in the 16th annual Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway.

• Sunday afternoon's rain-delayed Kroger 250 was Young's 13th career Truck Series start and second start at Martinsville Speedway
• Keystone Light Pole Qualifying was cancelled, for the second race in a row, due to rain and the field was set based on a combination of the two practice sessions on Friday
• Young started 23rd in the No. 02 Young's Motorsports entry - his career best start at Martinsville
• Young would collect his first DNF of the year finishing 31st, 119 laps down to the race winner
• Matt Crafton won the 16th annual Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway, his first Truck Series win at the half-mile "paperclip"
• There were 17 lead changes, a new track record, between six different drivers and 10 cautions for 56 laps
• Tyler Young was the sixth-highest finishing 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender
• The Young's Motorsports team will return to action on Friday, May 9th, for the SFP 250 at Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Ks.

Quote - Tyler Young:
"I felt pretty confident coming into the race this afternoon. We started 23rd, which was a track best for me, and had a truck that I thought we could bring through the field and have a solid finish with. Unfortunately, under caution, we were trying to get caught up and then the field started checking-up and we had nowhere to go, so we got into the back of the 35 truck. The power steering got knocked off of it and we had to go behind the wall to replace the radiator. The guys did a really good job getting it back together, but it made for a long day. We have a new truck for Kansas so we will regroup and move forward from this slow start."
