2014 Kentucky: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Preview


Tyler Young and the No. 02 Standard Structures Inc. team rode the bumps at Kentucky Speedway to a 20th-place finish in the 4th annual UNOH 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race on Thursday night. The track known as the roughest on the circuit provides drivers with many challenges, and sometimes just finishing can be the biggest one of them all. Young, who was making his second series start at the 1.5-mile oval, was able to overcome several challenges and turn his track-best start into a track-best finish in the "Bluegrass State." The solid run was his fourth consecutive top-20 finish of the 2014 NCWTS season.

The Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender started the 150-lap race from the 22nd position. After several quick cautions and executing on the ensuing restarts, the No. 02 Silverado was scored in the 18th position in the opening laps. Unfortunately, the Standard Structures Inc. machine would get "a little free" on the long run and the team would fall outside the top-20, and eventually lose a lap to Kyle Busch who was dominating at the front of the field.

Crew chief Bryan Berry called Young onto pit road under green for four tires and fuel, making no chassis adjustments at lap 51. Unfortunately one of the challenges the team was faced with was a pit road speeding violation for "too fast entering." A lucky break of catching a caution before serving the penalty allowed the team to serve it under yellow and not lose another lap. When racing resumed on lap 65, the Young's Motorsports Chevrolet was scored 23rd.

By the halfway mark, Young found his groove through the bumps and started clicking off his fastest laps of the race. He called into his team on lap 77 saying, "it's not bad, I just have to hustle it." Unfortunately the team was faced with the challenge of overcoming a two-lap deficit to the leaders. Utilizing pit strategy and a long green flag run toward the end of the event, Young was able to cross the stripe in the 20th position to bring home his fourth consecutive top-20 finish.


Stats:
Start: 22nd
Finish: 20th
Laps: 147/150
Status: Running
Driver Points: 18th

Quote - Tyler Young:
"All day in practice we were pretty tight, but we just kept working on it. When the sun went down, we actually got pretty good. I got a pit road penalty under our first green flag stop so that put us a little behind, which was my fault. During the race, I felt like the truck was more stable, raced better, my restarts were a lot better and I'm happy with that. It's in one piece so we can go back and work on it - improve it."
