Kyle Strickler in for Spencer Boyd at Knoxville

This weekend at Knoxville, mainstay driver Spencer Boyd and Young’s Motorsports welcome Kyle Strickler as the driver of the team’s No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado for the Corn Belt 150.

Strickler, a native of Mooresville, N.C. is an avid and successful dirt driver. This season, he signed to run full-time in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for PCC Motorsports.

Earlier this year, he also scored his first victory on the World of Outlaws Late Model Series winning the Sunshine Nationals finale at Volusia (Fla.) Speedway Park.

Strickler, nicknamed by his peers as the “High Side Tickler” has two prior starts in the Truck Series, including most recently in 2019 at Eldora Speedway driving for David Gilliland Racing.

In those two starts, Strickler, earned a career-best 18th place finish at Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway in 2019 after starting fifth for DGR.
