Following a solid performance in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway, Tyler Young, driver of the No. 02 Young's Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado, is sitting solidly inside the top-10 in the driver point standings for the first time in his young career heading into Saturday night's Hyundai Construction Equipment 200 at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway (AMS). Young, who is currently ninth in the series standings, is in his second full-time season in the NCWTS, and will make his debut in the 14th annual event at the South Georgia track on Saturday. The Midland, Texas native, who made 12 track debuts in his rookie season in 2014, knows that being a good student of the sport along with patience, a good leader, strong team and strong Chevrolet Silverado will be what sets him apart from the rest of the "rookie" class in the 32-truck field when the trucks take the green flag at the 1.54-mile quad oval on Saturday.

Sounding Off - Tyler Young:

"Daytona, being the first race of the season, kind of sets the tone for the rest of the year. We ran well there, had a decent finish, and brought home a truck without a scratch on it. I would say that's a good start for us. Now, we get to take that momentum straight to Atlanta, instead of sitting on it for four or five weeks before racing at Martinsville. Momentum is important to us as drivers, especially at tracks we've never been to. It gives me and everyone on this Young's Motorsports team confidence."
