Welcome Aboard: For the seventh Truck Series race of 2022, Young’s Motorsports welcomes Shriners Children's as the primary marketing partner on Little’s No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado RST for the Dead On Tools 200.


Happy Anniversary: Shriners Children's® is kicking off its 100th Anniversary of providing life-changing care to children with the introduction of its new logo at Darlington Raceway in partnership with Jesse Little and Young’s Motorsports.


Little and Shriners Children's are beginning a new campaign, commemorating the momentous occasion with a special paint scheme and die-cast depicting the 100th Anniversary logo to premier during the Darlington Raceway race on Friday, May 6.


The 2022 #givealittle campaign offers fans a chance to be a part of the occasion with a $250 donation which will not only give you the opportunity to virtually ride along with Jesse at a future race but you will receive a commemorative Shriner's Children's Young's Motorsports No. 02 Jesse Little die-cast truck.


Jesse Little Truck Series Darlington Raceway Track Stats: Friday night’s Dead On Tools 200 at Darlington will mark Little’s inaugural Truck Series start at the famed South Carolina race track.


Little, however, does have four previous NASCAR Xfinity Series starts to his credit with a track-best of 18th after starting 10th in the 2020 Sport Clips Haircuts VFW 200.


Jesse Little Truck Series Speedway Stats: At NASCAR Camping World Truck Series tracks classified as a speedway, Little has made 27 starts throughout his career with five top-10 finishes, while also carrying an average finishing position of 18.0.

Following his heat race, Grala lined up 25th for the 150-lap race and quickly vaulted his race truck towards the top-10, but a late-race spin left little time for the former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series winner to recover, relegating Grala and the No. 02 to a frustrating 26th place finish.


Calling the Shots: Guiding Little as crew chief of the No. 02 Shriners Children's® Chevrolet Silverado RST is crew chief Steven Dawson.


A long-time Young’s Motorsports employee, Dawson will serve as crew chief for just his eighth Truck Series race. The Dead On Tools 200 will be his first race as crew chief at the 1.366-mile egg-shaped oval.


Dawson, 34, is a native of Concord, N.C.

Jesse Little Pre-Race Quote:

On Darlington Raceway: “I’ve had Darlington Raceway circled on my schedule all year. We get to unveil our Shriners Children’s 100th-anniversary paint scheme and kick off our 2022 #GiveaLittle fundraising campaign.


“I’ve always enjoyed racing around Darlington, it’s a demanding track and requires a cautiously aggressive approach which fits into my style.


“I know my No. 02 boys and everyone at Young’s Motorsports has put a lot into this program and want just as much as I do, to go put on a show for all our partners and fans.


“I also again couldn’t be more excited to represent Shriners Children's in their 100th year of changing lives. Having been able to visit a handful of hospitals over the years, it’s extremely rewarding to get to carry their branding on our truck for Darlington.”

No. 126: This weekend at Darlington Raceway, Boyd will make his 126th career NASCAR start. Boyd has three starts in the NASCAR Cup Series, 50 starts in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and will make his 73rd start in Trucks when the green flag waves Friday night.

The highlight of his NASCAR career is a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series win at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway in October 2019 driving for Young’s Motorsports.


Anchor Partner: At the beginning of the season, Spencer Boyd announced that RimTyme will serve as an anchor partner on his No. 12 Chevrolet Silverado for the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.


RimTyme will serve as the primary marketing for seven races this season while serving as an associate marketing partner for the remaining 15 races.


RimTyme Custom Wheels and Tires carries more custom rims than the traditional wheel shop. They have a large selection of name-brand custom wheels available in the latest styles, finishes, colors, and sizes.


In addition to a variety of wheel brands, RimTyme carries popular tire brands for everyday driving needs at affordable prices to fit any budget.


Throwing It Back: In the 2022 Darlington Raceway Throwback Weekend tribute, Spencer Boyd will roll Michael Waltrip’s raced No. 23 Hawaiian Punch Pontiac out into the North Carolina sunshine to compare it to Boyd's No. 12 RimTyme Chevrolet Silverado that bears the same iconic design.

Michael Waltrip's Hawaiian Punch paint scheme debuted in 1985 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on a Chevrolet. In Waltrip’s first full-time season in the NASCAR Cup Series for Chuck Rider and Bahari Racing, the No. 23 Hawaiian Punch Pontiac became a part of NASCAR history attached to the now storied driver, team owner, and television personality.


As a keepsake from an important milestone in his career, Waltrip still has the actual race car from that year in his personal garage.


Spencer Boyd Truck Series Darlington Raceway Track Stats: Friday night’s Dead On Tools 200 will mark Boyd’s fourth start at the historic Darlington Raceway.


In his three previous efforts, he has earned a track-best of 21st after starting 26th in the 2021 In It To Win It 200.

26 points separate Boyd from 15th in the championship standings currently held by Matt DiBenedetto with 17 races remaining this season.


79 points separate Boyd from 10th in the championship standings occupied by Matt Crafton.


Young’s Motorsports’ No. 12 team secures 27th in the Truck Series owner standings.


Chasing That W: Boyd is eyeing his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series victory for himself and Young’s Motorsports.


In 2019 at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, Boyd pulled an upset during the Truck Series Playoffs by winning the Sugarland Shines 250 at the 2.66-mile superspeedway edging Todd Gilliland by 0.027 seconds.


Truck Series Rundown: In five years of Truck Series competition, Boyd has 72 career Truck Series starts with one win, two top-five and three top-10 finishes and a championship best of 17th in 2019 and carries an average finish of 22.7.

He will crew chief his 52nd NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday night. In his previous 51 races, he has one win, two top-five and four top-10 finishes to his resume.

This weekend marks his third race as crew chief at the track dubbed “Too Tough To Tame.”
