The Lowdown: NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rookie of the Year candidate Kris Wright will pilot the No. 02 F.N.B. Corporation Chevrolet Silverado this weekend at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway for his 16th career start.


In addition to his 14 Truck Series races this season at Daytona, Las Vegas (twice), Richmond, Kansas, Darlington, Charlotte, Texas, Nashville (Tenn.) Superspeedway, Pocono (Pa.) Raceway, Gateway, Darlington (S.C.) Raceway, Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway and most recently at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway, Wright also made his NCWTS debut last summer at the Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway Road Course.


Saturday afternoon’s United Rentals 200 will mark Wright’s debut at the famed Martinsville (Va.) Speedway paperclip oval.


Welcome Aboard: For the fifth time in 2021, F.N.B. Corporation will serve as the primary partner on Wright’s No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado.


F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB), headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is a diversified financial services company operating in seven states and the District of Columbia. FNB’s market coverage spans several major metropolitan areas including Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland; Cleveland, Ohio; Washington, D.C.; and Charlotte, Raleigh, Durham and the Piedmont Triad (Winston-Salem, Greensboro and High Point) in North Carolina.

Congratulations Kris: Last weekend at Kansas Speedway, Wright earned his career-best ARCA Menards Series finish in the Reese’s 150. Starting seventh, he finished sixth eclipsing his previous best ARCA finish of seventh last October at the 1.5-mile speedway.


Young’s Motorsports also participated in the ARCA season finale with newcomer Connor Mosack. After starting 10th, he finished 11th earning his career-best in the premier ARCA Menards Series division.


Kris Wright Truck Series Martinsville (Va.) Speedway Stats: Saturday afternoon’s United Rentals 200 will mark Wright’s inaugural debut at the 0.526-mile short track.


Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway | Chevrolet Silverado 250 Race Recap: In the most recent NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega, Wright made his 15th career NCWTS start.


Starting 16th based on the metrics set by NASCAR without practice or qualifying,

Wright’s No. 02 F.N.B. Corporation Chevrolet Camaro was extremely competitive throughout the race, but unfortunately, Wright was one of nearly 20 trucks collected in the dreaded “big one” on Lap 56.


The incident put Wright out of the race with a disappointing 36th place finish.


Driver Intel: Road racing standout Kris Wright continues his rookie season with Young’s Motorsports with Saturday afternoon’s United Rentals 200 at Martinsville.


The former IMSA and Formula 3 driver invades the Truck Series scene this season after spending much of the 2020 season competing in the ARCA Menards Series competing for Chad Bryant Racing and GMS Racing, respectively.


Wright earned three top-10 finishes in six races, including a career-best seventh in the season finale at Kansas Speedway last October.


This season, in addition to the Truck Series, Wright has spent time competing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Sam Hunt Racing on the road courses and a string of races in ARCA for Rette Jones Racing.


Solid Pace For Young’s Motorsports: With two races remaining in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season, Young’s Motorsports sits a respectable 22nd in the series owner standings with a handful of drivers.


In addition to Kaz Grala and Wright, NASCAR Xfinity Series winner Josh Berry, NASCAR Cup Series standout Daniel Suarez and USAC Triple Crown champion Chris Windom have all piloted the No. 02 Young’s Motorsports Chevrolet in the 20 races thus far of 2021.


In one of the most competitive Truck Series seasons on record, the team has collected one top-five, two top-10s, five top-15s and 12 top-25 efforts collectively.


Calling the Shots: Guiding Wright as crew chief of the No. 02 F.N.B. Corporation Chevrolet Silverado is crew chief Steven Dawson.


A long-time Young’s Motorsports employee, Dawson will serve as crew chief for just his second NCWTS race. In 2017, he guided Austin Hill to a respectable 17th place finish at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway after starting 27th.


Dawson, 33, is a native of Concord, N.C.

Kris Wright Pre-Race Quote:

On Martinsville: “I’m looking forward to Martinsville this weekend with our No. 02 F.N.B. Corporation Chevrolet Silverado. Even though we did not have the finish I feel like we deserved at Talladega, we carried the speed from Las Vegas to Talladega and I know we can continue that pace on Saturday.


“It’s going to be a very physical race, but I think we will have a real shot at contending for our best finish of the season.”
