CONCORD, N.C. — Tyler Young’s first full season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series hasn’t exactly gotten off to a good start.

Young, a 23-year-old Texas native, has failed to finish the first four races of the Truck Series season because of crashes and mechanical failures on his No. 02 Chevrolet. Crashes at Daytona Int’l Speedway, Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Kansas Speedway, were followed by an engine failure at last weekend at North Carolina’s Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“It has just kind of been a rough couple weeks and it has drug out to a couple of months because we have only raced a couple times there at the beginning (of the year),” Young said.

Despite all the rough luck, Young has learned a lot during the first few races of the season that he hopes he can use to his benefit later this year.

“I learned a lot at Daytona, but that is Daytona. I learned a lot at Martinsville, but that is kind of its own deal, too,” Young said. “Kansas, that is probably kind of the most we can put in the bank and learn about the air and the aero package on these new trucks.”
