Dover, DE (May 31, 2014) -The "Monster Mile," arguably one of the most demanding tracks for both driver and machine, was the site of Friday's Lucas Oil 200, the fifth NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race on the 2014 schedule. Tyler Young, who was making his Dover International Speedway debut, started the 200-lap event from the 27th position. Fighting a Chevrolet Silverado that was, "tight in the center of the corner and off," combined with the blistering pace eventual race winner Kyle Busch set on the field, left the No. 02 machine multiple laps down early in the event. However, as the Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender found his rhythm and started to adapt to the concrete surface, he was able to muscle his way through the 35-truck field to bring home a career-best 17th-place finish.

Quote - Tyler Young:

"I really wish it hadn't rained on Thursday now - I could have used that extra practice time to get accustomed to the track. There were a lot of cautions in the first 25 laps of the race and I could never find a rhythm. The truck was tight most of the race, but I felt like we got faster as the race went on and I could get going. I really look forward to coming back here - I like it. Overall it was a successful weekend; we finished the race and had a solid run. I'm proud of the effort everyone at Young's Motorsports put in this weekend and I'm looking forward to heading home next weekend to Texas."
