SS Green Light Racing Welcomes Back Jason Young

Mooresville, NC -- Tuesday, September 8th, 2009 -- Jason Young will return to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for Saturday's running of the Copart 200 in SS Green Light Racing's No. 07 at the Gateway International Speedway.

Gateway will be the third NCWTS event in 2009 for the 26 year-old native of Houston, Texas. Young finished 24th in Memphis and improved to 20th at Nashville Superspeedway last month. Jason hopes to further improve on the earlier runs and has his sights set on a better finish this weekend. "We ran pretty good and finished 20th at Nashville, I think I learned a lot in that race. I'd like to set the bar a little higher and target a top-fifteen this weekend."

"I think I have become much more comfortable in the truck over the last two races. It's been a quick learning curve getting used to the heavier truck and the level of competition in the Truck Series." Young continued. "I'm really excited to get another opportunity with SS Green Light Racing. Everyone has been so good to me and I really appreciate the help they have given me over the last few races."

Gateway has a unique egg-shaped layout with two distinct corners at the different ends of the track. "I've been trying to learn as much as I can about the track watching some videos and stuff. We run our late model at Montgomery and it has two different corners similar to Gateway. I'm hoping that my experience there will help this weekend," explained Young. "We put this deal together pretty quick, I'm so excited and ready to get behind the wheel of the No. 07 again."

SS Green Light Racing Crew Chief Bobby Dotter is pleased to have Young return to the No. 07. "Jason is a great kid and I think he has talent. He got a raw deal in Memphis and showed a lot of improvement at Nashville so the whole SS Green Light team is looking forward having him in the truck this weekend."

SS Green Light Racing late model driver Drew Brannon will also attempt to win his ninth feature of the 2009 season at the Gateway International Raceway as the ASA Late Models Challenge Series is competing at the mile and one-quarter speedway following the truck race on Saturday afternoon. The sixteen year-old from Miami is currently second in ASA Late Model Challenge Series points.
