2014 Eldora: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Recap

2014 Eldora: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Recap

The 2nd annual 1-800-CarCash Mudsummer Classic at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, OH was one of the most anticipated events on the 2014 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule for fans and drivers alike, including Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender, Tyler Young. Growing up in Midland, Texas, Young raced his go-kart on dirt and had this race circled on his calendar since announcing he would run a full season in 2014. The 23-year-old driver proved he could "sling dirt" with the best of them at the half-mile clay oval on Wednesday night. After being forced to make the 30-truck field by running the last chance qualifying race, Young recovered from a late-race spin, which caused significant damage to the front-end of his Chevrolet Silverado, to finish second - lining the No. 02 machine up 27th for the main event. Unfortunately, Young would be forced to the rear of the field prior to the start of the 150-lap feature for unapproved adjustments.

Young showed patience in the opening laps, and worked his way up to the 19th position when the first competition caution was displayed at lap 62. Crew chief, Bryan Berry brought the Randco Industries/Young's Building System's Chevrolet Silverado down pit road for four tires and fuel. When racing resumed on lap 63, Young was scored 19th. The 24-year-old driver ran the bottom of the half-mile oval throughout the second segment, where Young felt like his truck was best, maintaining a position inside the top-20. When the second competition caution was thrown at lap 112, Berry brought the No. 02 machine down pit road one final time for four Goodyear tires and a can of Sunoco fuel. Young told his crew, "I started off tight, but I'm getting better," and he did. Young gained five positions in the final 20 laps to finish 15th in his Eldora Speedway debut, tying his career-best finish at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth earlier this year.

The solid run was the Young's Motorsports team's sixth-consecutive top-20 finish and allowed Young to gain two positions in the 2014 NCWTS driver point standings heading into the 11th race on the 2014 schedule at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway.

• Starting fifth in the last chance race, Young knew he had to beat four trucks to transfer to the main event. The No. 02 Silverado proved to be strong early, but suffered from a spin on lap 8 of 15. Restarting seventh, with some front-end damage, Young used the bottom of the race track to work his way back through the field and finished second to John Wes Townley - lining him up 27th for the main feature.

• Young ran has high as 15th and as low as 29th, but following 150 laps, broken down into three segments (60, 50, 40), Young crossed the line 15th

Quote - Tyler Young:
"The truck was good. I just got excited when we were running in the last chance qualifying race. We got ourselves behind, had to get back up on the wheel, and we made it in the show, thank goodness. The guys worked their butts off to get the truck back together, moving the front end around a little bit, in what little time we had. They did a really good job and worked hard all weekend."

"This was my first time at Eldora, and it was a lot of fun. If we had some track position, we could have run with the top guys, it just never fell in our favor. Passing and clearing guys was just so tough tonight. When we got on the bottom it was a lot better. I just had to roll the bottom and be patient. Overall it was a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to coming back here next year."
