Kris Wright was scheduled to drive the No. 02 Young’s Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado in this weekend’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series FR8 Auctions 200 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, but he has tested positive for COVID-19, which will sideline him for at least Saturday’s race.

Young’s Motorsports announced on Friday that Josh Berry, who has been driving a part-time schedule for JR Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season, will fill in for Wright.

Wright, 26, has run two of the three NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events this season in the No. 02 machine, with a best finish of 12th coming in the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway.

Berry has made one NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start, which came in 2016 at Chicagoland Speedway. In that race, Berry finished 13th.
