Nick Leitz is set to join Young’s Motorsports for a limited schedule in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series this season, the organization announced on Monday.
Leitz, who made his NASCAR Truck Series debut for Reaume Brothers Racing at Nashville Superspeedway last season, will drive the No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado in three events, beginning with Saturday’s Heart of America 200 at Kansas Speedway.
Precision Measurements Inc. will continue its relationship with Leitz, serving as the primary marketing partner for his first start of the season at the 1.5-mile facility in Kansas City, Kansas.
PMI is a full-service Land Surveying firm, established in 1995, providing surveying services statewide, nationwide and internationally with offices in Virginia Beach, Newport News, Richmond and Chantilly, Virginia as well as Columbia, Maryland.
“I am excited to team up with Young’s Motorsports for Kansas Speedway this weekend,” said Leitz. “Young’s Motorsports is a great organization with a Cup Series-like appearance and full of a great group of individuals. I am excited for Kansas and the opportunity to drive the No. 20 Precision Measurements Inc. Chevrolet. I like the mile-and-half tracks and am stoked to see what we can accomplish together. ”
In addition to Kansas, Leitz is scheduled to join the organization for events at Nashville Superspeedway and Homestead-Miami Speedway, marking a three-race campaign that is well spread out throughout the series’ 23-race season.
“Everyone is super pumped about having Nick a part of the team,” said Young. “He has meshed really well not only with everyone in the shop but he is quickly developing a bond with our other Young’s Motorsports drivers.”
“Over the years, Kansas Speedway has been particularly kind to Young’s Motorsports and we feel like Nick can easily adjust to getting back in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series saddle and have a productive race for not only himself but our team.”
