MOORESVILLE, N.C. — Daytona ARCA Menards Series winner Greg Van Alst will pilot the No. 20 Young’s Motorsports Chevrolet entry for the remainder of the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series season.
The campaign with begin with Friday night’s TSport 200 at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.
A veteran of the short track scene, the Anderson, Ind., native will carry support from CB Fabricating for a minimum of five of the seven remaining races, including Van Alst’s hometown race at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park on Aug. 11.
“I am very appreciative of this opportunity with Young’s Motorsports,” said Van Alst. “I have been weighing our options on what path to take for the remainder of the 2023 season and when Tyler and I chatted, the pairing made sense. I know he holds a lot of the same values and expectations that I have being a racing veteran but also a new face on the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series tour.
“I think we can put together some strong finishes that could lead to more for next season. I am ready to get started at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park this weekend in our No. 20 CB Fabricating Chevrolet Silverado.”
Van Alst, 42, has 36 ARCA Menards Series starts to his resume, including his Daytona win, three top-five and 17 top-10 finishes. In five ARCA races this season, he earned one win, one top-five and three top-10 finishes.
Before transitioning to Young’s Motorsports, the 2019 ARCA/CRA Super Series champion recently competed in the NASCAR Xfinity Series with Alpha Prime Racing competing at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway and New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
“I am thrilled to welcome Greg to the Young’s Motorsports family,” said Young’s Motorsports team principal Tyler Young. “I have watched Greg for several years now and his determination and passion is going to be a great asset to our organization over the next three months.
“With his experience and background, we feel he can bring a lot to the table and help us not only evaluate our Truck Series program — but also offer a good trajectory for improvements for the 2024 season. We are definitely looking forward to Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park and the remaining six races thereafter. With Greg’s ability and craft behind the wheel, I know we’re in good hands.”
In addition to the NASCAR Truck Series race at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park, Van Alst will return to the ARCA Menards Series tour and compete in Friday’s Truck Series preamble.
