2014 Pocono: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Recap

2014 Pocono: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Recap

Progress and improvement has been the name of the game in 2014 for Tyler Young and the Young's Motorsports team, and Pocono (Pa.) Raceway was no different despite a premature finish. Young's debut at the "Tricky Triangle" came to an early end as a result of being swept up in an accident six laps shy of the finish, handing him a 26th-place finish in the Pocono Mountains 150 on Saturday.

The day's events got off to an impressive start for Young as he advanced to session number two in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) knockout pole qualifying, solidifying a 23rd-place starting spot. In the two most recent NCWTS events, Young had taken advantage of the tight confines of short tracks to develop the team's growing program. The string of improving performance carried into the first fuel run at Pocono as Young advanced into the top-20 by the events first caution at lap 18. Under the yellow, Young brought the Randco Industries/Young's Building Systems Chevrolet to the attention of his team for four Goodyear tires, fuel and adjustments to remedy a changing balance on the Silverado. Young reported being, "free-in turns one and three, but tight in the tunnel turn," and continued his methodical move through the field on the ensuing restart.

Young took the lap 21 restart from the 21st position and muscled his Chevrolet Silverado into the top-15 by lap 33. Through a cycle of mixed strategies and pit cycles, Young moved well inside the top 10 to the sixth position by lap 40, and was subsequently running ninth when the yellow flag flew over the speedway on lap 48 for the second time. After a pit stop for fuel only under the caution, Young restarted 14th on lap 52 and battled in heavy traffic, narrowly escaping a crash at the exit of Turn 2.

On the following restart with three laps to go in the scheduled distance, one of Young's most impressive performances on intermediate tracks would come to an untimely end as contact from the No. 77 truck shot Young into the outside wall at the exit of Turn 2. The Randco Industries/Young's Building Systems team attempted to make repairs, but had to settle for a 26th-place finish. The result was the Sunoco Rookie's first finish outside the top-20 in six races.

• Pocono is the first race since Charlotte Motor Speedway in May that Young has finished outside the top-20
• Young's string of six consecutive top-20 finishes was the best stretch of finishes that the Texas native had in his 22 NCWTS starts
• Young was tied for seventh in the Pass Differential category of NASCAR's Loop Data, finishing +7 positions on the afternoon
• In 11 starts this season, Young has two top-15 and six top-20 finishes
• At the halfway point in Young's first full-time season, he is tied for 14th in NCWTS standings, 83 markers outside the top 10
• Austin Dillon won the 5th annual Pocono Mountains 150
• Johnny Sauter, Joey Coulter, Clint Bowyer and Ryan Blaney rounded out the top-five finishers
• Up next: The NCWTS will take a week off before heading to Michigan International Speedway for the Careers for Veterans 200 on Saturday, August 16

Quote - Tyler Young:
"We had a strong Randco Industries/Young's Building Systems Chevrolet today, and it's pretty frustrating to have something out of our control ruin a good finish and tear up a truck. Sometimes you can't do much about guys around you and the way they race, but I felt like this was a good step forward for us and our performance. We improved the speed in our truck, and it was nice to run up in the top-10 today, even with our strategy and pit stops. We'll look forward to Michigan, and see how much more we can get our intermediate program moving forward."

Practice: 24th (56.692 seconds/158.753mph)
Final Practice: 24th (56.64 seconds/158.881mph)
Qualifying: 23rd (56.309 seconds/159.832mph)
