Team Dillon partners with GoShare and Young’s Motorsports for 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Season
Young’s Motorsports announced Friday that it will field a second truck in full-time competition for the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season.
“In partnership with Team Dillon, we have put together an exciting schedule for 2018,” said team principal, Tyler Young. “The venture will feature both Austin and Ty Dillon, as well as Daniel Hemric and Team Dillon development driver, Tanner Thorson, in the No. 20 GoShare Chevrolet Silverado for a total of 17 races.”
Tanner Thorson scored a fourth place finish and numerous awards following his debut with the Dooling Hayward Motorsports/Richard Childress Racing No. 63 team, with partner Overkill Motorsports, at the 2018 Chili Bowl Nationals. Thorson collected two Jason Leffler “Elbows Up” awards, after Thursday’s efforts and Saturday’s top five finish, as well as the “Hard Charger” award for the second consecutive year.
“This No. 63 team worked incredibly hard this week. We found ourselves in a tough spot at the beginning of the night Thursday, but we made the best of it. The entire team never gave up on me,” Thorson stated.
Tanner Thorson looks ahead to 2018, as he partners with new organizations for the upcoming race season. Thorson is set to pilot the Dooling Hayward Motorsports/Richard Childress Racing No. 63 midget and the Tri-C Motorsports No. 3c wing sprint car.
“I’m extremely excited for what this upcoming year has in store. Joe [Dooling] and Brody [Hayward] teamed up with Richard Childress Racing and I’m thankful they included me. I think this is a unique opportunity to help combine these two worlds of racing. Also, Clyde [Lamar], with Tri-C Motorsports, has asked me to drive one of the most historical sprint cars in the U.S., which is really special to me as well. I’m fortunate to have these opportunities with awesome programs and I can’t thank them enough,” Thorson stated.
