Will Rodgers joins Young’s Motorsports for Mid-Ohio Truck Series race

Young’s Motorsports welcomes Will Rodgers to the team as the primary driver of the No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado RST for the 14th race of the Truck Series season.

A familiar name in the NASCAR garage returns to the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series for the first time since Circuit of the Americas in 2022.

A native of Maui, Hi, Rodgers began go-kart racing at the age of nine before moving into motorcross at the age of 13. After a successful stint including a regional championship on two wheels, Rodgers broadened his racing resume by competing in off-road events before evolving into Sports Car Racing in 2015.

By 2016, his Sports Car credentials landed him in NASCAR’s development series, the ARCA Menards Series where he competed in several races on the series’ platform winning four times at iconic road courses like New Jersey Motorsports Park, Sonoma Raceway and Watkins Glen International.

While sponsorship has kept him on the sidelines from competing full-time, the likable driver has managed nine NASCAR Xfinity Series starts since 2019 and three previous Truck Series races leading into Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

For Rodger’s Young’s Motorsports debut, Texas-based companies Young’s Building Systems and Randco Industries Inc. will serve as the primary partner on his No. 02 Chevrolet RST in the Buckeye state.

Additionally, Rogers competed at Mid-Ohio last month in the TA2 & XGT TransAm classes. The XGT class performance with Chris Evans Race Cars landed Rodgers in Victory Lane.
