Myrtle Beach, S.C. – Tyler Young and his Young’s Motorsports Team return to the CARS X-1R Pro Cup Series this weekend for the Dean’s Custom Air 250 at Myrtle Beach Speedway in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Tyler is racing a part-time schedule this year in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series and is doing the same in the CARS X-1R Pro Cup Series.
Last year, Tyler started seventh and finished ninth at Myrtle Beach. He has finished as high as second (in 2011) and says he enjoys racing at the legendary facility.
“Myrtle Beach is a track that eats tires like crazy,” Tyler said. “You have to really have the car right because everyone’s going to have tire issues. The track’s just very coarse. I enjoy it because it’s a challenge but when you get it right you can really have some fun there. I expect the fans will see a great show again this time just as we’ve put on in the past.”
Tyler won at Hickory Motor Speedway in 2012 in the Pro Cup Series. He says this year the competition is as tough as it’s ever been.
“Sometimes it’s not about how many cars but about who the cars are,” He explained. “There are veterans like J.P. Morgan, Stacy Puryear and Clay Rogers plus a whole bunch of younger guys like Gus Dean, Ryan Heavner and myself who are all right there every week. Dalton Hopkins has gotten a lot better this year and there are a couple of rookies like that are really fast as well. Our Young’s Motorsports Team is capable of winning anywhere we go and we’re optimistic we’ll be in the hunt on Saturday!”
