Kris Wright announced Thursday (Dec. 31) that he will race the full 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule. He will drive the No. 02 Young’s Motorsports Chevrolet, replacing Tate Fogleman. The 26-year-old Wright will be competing for Rookie of the Year honors.
Wright will be teammates with Spencer Boyd, who already announced he will return to pilot the No. 20.
“I am really excited to be joining Young’s Motorsports for the 2021 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series,” Wright said in a press release. “Last year was my introduction to stock car racing and I will be applying what I have learned to this year’s competitive class. I am looking forward to a successful season with Tyler and his crew.”
“I’m really looking forward to working with Kris this season,” team owner Tyler Young added. “He’s had success in everything he’s raced and we are excited to get going in 2021.”
Wright made a combined nine starts across all three levels of the ARCA Menards Series last year. He recorded two top fives and five top 10s, with a best finish of second in the first half of the ARCA Menards Series West doubleheader at Utah Motorsports Campus.
Wright also made one start in the Truck Series with GMS Racing. In the Truck Series’ inaugural race at the Daytona Road Course (the Sunoco 159), Wright started 26th and finished 25th.
According to the press release, Young’s Motorsports will field three full-time entries in the 2021 season. It previously fielded three full-time entries in 2019 before downsizing to two last year.
