Talladega, A.L. (October 12, 2019) - Spencer Boyd made organization history today capturing Young’s Motorsports first NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series win at Talladega Superspeedway. The St. Louis, Mo., native made a last-lap charge from the 7th position with encouragement from spotter, Freddie Kraft, to take the checkered flag a mere 0.132 seconds behind presumed race winner, Johnny Sauter. The Alabama Roofing Professionals No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado was declared the winner of the Sugarlands Shine 250 after Sauter was penalized for dropping below the yellow line to block another competitor.
“I was sitting there, and I’m like, man, second is amazing for us,” Boyd said. “We’re happy. We finished fourth at Daytona in this truck, and then one of my crew guys was like, ‘You just won!’ I can’t believe this. Two weeks ago I wasn’t running this race.
“We put this together late with Alabama Roofing Professionals…You dream of winning a NASCAR race. Four years ago, I was selling cars with my dad at Hendrick Automotive Group. A lot of people believed in me to get me to this point.”
The twenty-four-year-olds previous best finish in the series came at the season opener in Daytona (4th).
"I am so proud of Spencer, and the whole No. 20 team," said team principal Tyler Young. "My family has been competing in this series since 2012, and this is what you dream of. A win. My guys work really hard, and I am so glad to see it payoff for them. A huge thanks to Chevrolet for their support of our program and to Alabama Roofing Professionals for partnering with Spencer on this race."
