Kaz Grala will add a limited schedule in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series to his already busy 2022 campaign, adding an 11-race slate with Young’s Motorsports in the No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado.
The 23-year-old will make his 2022 debut with the team at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and will continue in the No. 02 at COTA, Bristol Dirt, Gateway, Sonoma, Knoxville, Mid-Ohio, Pocono, Richmond, Talladega, and Homestead.

“I’m so grateful to be returning to Young’s Motorsports with an even busier schedule for 2022,” said Grala. I will be racing at some of my favorite tracks throughout the season and will have even more chances to prove myself than I’ve had in years, starting at Las Vegas.”
In addition to his time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Grala has been confirmed to drive the No. 50 for The Money Team Racing in the Daytona 500, as well as signing a part-time deal with Alpha Prime Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
“Even though it was just a few races last year, Young’s Motorsports was one of the best teams to work with that I’ve ever been a part of, and I feel like our results reflected that. I can’t thank Tyler (Young, team principal) and the Young family enough for believing in me. I don’t plan to let them down!”
The Boston, Massachusetts-native will split seat-time in the No. 02 with Jesse Little, who was announced to a 12-race deal with the organization in December. The combination of Grala and Little brings a much-needed wave of experience for the team in 2022.
“We are beyond stoked to welcome back Kaz Grala to Young’s Motorsports this season,” said Young. “Even with his limited starts and track time with our team last year, he was able to climb into the truck and make the most of each opportunity, nearly putting us in Victory Lane at Circuit of the Americas.
“With an opportunity to increase his schedule this year and pair him with a talented driver like Jesse Little, I feel like everyone involved will have a chance to shine.”
