Concord, N.C. (May 16, 2014) - After a promising start to the N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway (CMS), Tyler Young, driver of the No. 02 AKL Insurance Group/Young's Building Systems Chevrolet Silverado, experienced engine woes just prior to the half-way mark in the 134-lap event. The unfortunate result relegated the Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender to a 28th-place finish in just his second start at the 1.5-mile quad-oval.

• Friday night's N.C. Education Lottery 200 was Young's 15th career Truck Series start and second start at Charlotte Motor Speedway
• Young advanced to the second round of knockout qualifying on Friday afternoon to secure the 23rd starting position for Friday night's 134-lap event, a track-best for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender
• The No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado went a lap down early in the 134-lap event, but was able to get his lap back after taking the wave around under the first caution at lap 21
• Crew chief, Bryan Berry called Young down pit road under caution at lap 30 for four tires, fuel, and a chassis adjustment to aid in the handling
• After advancing to the 22nd position, the motor on the No. 02 machine expired on lap 66, relegating the Young's Motorsports team to a 28th-place finish, a track best for the Midland, Texas native
• Kyle Busch won the 12th annual N.C. Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, his 38th NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory and his sixth win at CMS in nine starts
• There were two lead changes between two different drivers and nine cautions for 47 laps
• Tyler Young was the fourth-highest finishing 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender
• The Young's Motorsports team will return to action on Friday, May 30, for the Lucas Oil 200 at Dover International Speedway in Delaware - the fifth stop on the 2014 NCWTS schedule

Quote - Tyler Young:
"We ended up having a right front tire go down at the start of the second round of qualifying. We came in after our first laps out in the second session, to make an adjustment, and noticed we had a right front flat. Unfortunately, per NASCAR's rules, you can't change a tire until the break. At that time, we had not advanced to the top-12 so we ended up starting 23rd."

"When the green flag dropped I was loose over the bumps but better on the longer runs. We came down and made a pit stop, made it a lot better and we were definitely going to be pretty good. We were probably one stop away from being really decent, but the motor let go. I can't thank everyone enough - PME and Mark Smith build great motors, I just hate that it happened here."
