2014 Iowa: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Preview

2014 Iowa: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Preview

Tyler Young learned quickly at the beginning of the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season that life as a Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender was tough. In the season's first four races, the Young's Motorsports driver was plagued with four DNF's and was credited with four finishes of 23rd or worse. However, Young knew his trucks were better than his finishes and he didn't give up on his team or his drive to succeed.

In the last four NCWTS events, Young has had four consecutive top-20 finishes, including two track-best finishes at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth and Kentucky Speedway in Sparta. In fact, Young has gained 11 points on 15th-place in the 2014 driver point standings over the last four races, moving up two positions to 18th.

For race No. 9 of 22 on the NCWTS schedule, the No. 02 Young's Motorsports team heads west to Newton, Iowa for Friday night's American Ethanol 200 presented by Enogen at Iowa Speedway. In a state that produces a tenth of the nation's food supply and ranks third as the most productive agriculture state, Young hopes to continue his string of solid runs and harvest another strong finish in his second start at the 7/8-mile Midwestern track.

A penny for your thoughts: Tyler Young, Driver, No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado -
"The year didn't start out exactly how I had imagined it. It's not like we weren't running well, our finishes just didn't reflect our performance on track. The first four races were tough - I think we brought back three wrecked trucks. Since Dover, we have pulled together some decent finishes and we are bringing these trucks back in one piece, which means a lot for our program. When we are able to bring these trucks back to the shop, we can learn from and improve on them. We aren't trying to compete with some of the tenured and highly funded teams; we are on our own program, running our own race. I'm going to a lot of these tracks for the first time, so this is a year about learning from the good runs and the bad ones so we can continue to improve on our program along the way."

Fast & Fun Facts:
• Young has one start at Iowa Speedway (July, 2013) - started 23rd and finished 27th after completing 194 of 200 laps attempted (97%)
• Iowa Speedway is one of only 10 tracks on the 2014 NCWTS schedule that Young has experience racing on
• Calling the shots for the No. 02 Young's Motorsports team is veteran crew chief Bryan Berry. As an 11-year veteran of the NCWTS, Berry has 186 starts to his resume, including four starts since 2011 at Iowa. His success includes four top-20 finishes.
• Chevrolet has more wins than any other manufacturer at the 7/8-mile track

Chassis History:
For the fourth time this year, Young's Motorsports will unload chassis 008 for Fridaynight's American Ethanol 200 at Iowa Speedway. This chassis was built new, in-house for the 2014 season and was last seen at Kentucky Speedway where the Texas native turned a track-best start into a track-best finish. In fact, in the last three starts for this chassis, Young has had a track-best start, and in two of the three starts, the Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender has turned those starts into record-breaking finishes.

Rookie Race:
Following a 20th-place finish at Kentucky Speedway, Young is third in the 2014 Sunoco Rookie of the Year standings with 66 points, a mere six points behind second-place Mason Mingus.

Rearview Mirror - Kentucky:
Following a track-best 22nd-place start in the UNOH 225 at Kentucky Speedway, Young and the No. 02 Young's Motorsports team rode the bumps at the 1.5-mile speedway to a track-best 20th-place finish. The solid run was his fourth consecutive top-20 finish of the 2014 NCWTS season.

Truck Series Fast Facts:
• 2014 marks Young's first full-time season in the NCWTS
• Young has made 19 starts in the series since 2012
• First start - Rockingham (2012)
• Best start - 13th, Bristol (2012)
• Best finish - 15th, Texas Motor Speedway (June, 2014)
