Settled In: In February, Young's Motorsports announced that Mason Massey will compete full-time in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN® Truck Series this season aboard the team's flagship, No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado RST, which will continue with Friday night’s North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.  

 

Massey arrived at Young's Motorsports after running a limited NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule last season for SS-GreenLight Racing, including a top-10 performance at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. 

 

The Douglasville, Ga. native started his 2023 Truck Series season with Reaume Brothers Racing and competed in seven races with a season-high 11th place finish at Texas Motor Speedway, but later shifted his presence to Xfinity for five races throughout the 33-race season. 

 

About Mason: Massey has over 20 years of experience behind the wheel, launching his racing career at age five. Since then, he has garnered over 200 feature wins, 11 championships, and 10 track records across multiple series, including the U.S. Legends Pro National Championship.

 

Amongst the many Late Model victories to Massey's credit during his tenure in the Bill Elliott Racing Development Program is the 2012 triumph in the Alabama 200. He eventually graduated to NASCAR in 2019, competing in the Truck Series before advancing to the Xfinity Series in 2020. 

 

After part-time Xfinity stints in 2020 and 2021, respectively, the Georgian captured the attention of many with an impressive sixth-place finish in the spring 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series contest at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway in front of the hometown crowd. 

 

With 42 more NASCAR starts to his resume since his first career NASCAR top-10 effort, Massey has landed with Young's Motorsports, a longtime fixture in the Truck Series, hoping to impress and land the organization back in Victory Lane this season. 

 

All-Aboard!: For the 11th of 23 NASCAR CRAFTSMAN® Truck Series races this season, Young’s Building Systems and Randco Industries Inc. return to serve as the co-primary marketing partners on the No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado RST for the 134-lap race on Friday night.

North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway | Wright Brand 250 Race Recap: In the 10th race of the 2024 Truck Series season, Young’s Motorsports and Massey searched for another solid finish at the historic North Wilkesboro (N.C.) Speedway.

 

In his Truck Series debut at the historic track in Wilkes County, N.C., Massey was able to muscle forward despite qualifying being canceled due to inclement weather.

 

Over the course of 250 laps, Massey battled traffic and the balance of his race truck to remain competitive and on the lead lap for most of the race. Receiving the free pass late in the race allowed Massey to make a surge forward climbing to 23rd at the checkered flag.

 

The finish allowed Massey to climb one position in the Truck Series standings to 22nd.

 

In 2024, Massey has delivered two top-15, four top-20s, six top-21 finishes and seven top-22 efforts, highlighted by a career-best outing at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, where he steered the team’s flagship truck to an 11th-place finish.
