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.
