2014 Bristol: Tyler Young NASCAR Truck Race Preview

Tyler Young will make his third NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) start at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway in Wednesday night's UNOH 200. The half-mile track is the site of the Sunoco Rookie's career-best start of 13th (2012) and the Midland, Tex. native would like nothing more than it to become the site of his first top-10 finish in 2014. Young has recorded career-best finishes four different times this season at Dover (Del.) International Speedway (17th), Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth (15th), Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio (15th), and the series' last stop at Michigan International Speedway in Brooklyn (14th). With only 10 races remaining on the 2014 schedule, Young hopes to capitalize on his past track experience and bring home a solid finish following 200 laps of NCWTS action in "Thunder Valley."
