Added team principal Tyler Young, “Everyone at Young’s Motorsports is thrilled to welcome Kris back to the team for the 2023 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season. His contagious energy and positive attitude have certainly been missed. Without a doubt, the additional experience he has gained on the track over the past two seasons will certainly be an asset to our program as we look toward a competitive season.”
