Blake Lothian Joins Young’s Motorsports for Martinsville Truck Race

Blake Lothian is set to make his return to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series after a hiatus of more than 18 months, joining forces with Young’s Motorsports for Friday’s Long John Silver’s 200 at Martinsville Speedway.

Lothian will pilot the No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado, a second entry for the Tyler Young-owned organiation, in Friday’s second short track event of the 2024 season for the NASCAR Truck Series.

“Martinsville holds a special place in my heart because I made my Truck Series debut there in 2022. I’ve been working really hard to return to the Truck Series, and it’s only fitting that my first race back is at Martinsville,” said Lothian. “I’m grateful to GGT Energy Solutions, the Wings and Wheels Foundation, Snow Belt MGMT and Young’s Motorsports for their support. This is just the beginning, and I can’t wait to get started this weekend.”

GGT Energy Solutions, a provider of common sense energy-saving solutions built around an open-protocol, open-license integration framework that maximizes the capabilities of HVAC, electrical, lighting and other energy consumption systems, will serve as the primary marketing partner on Lothian’s Chevrolet Silverado.

“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration and support with Blake Lothian,” said Sam Galbraith, Vice President of GGT Energy Solutions. “As a Driver Ambassador for Wings and Wheels Foundation, Blake exemplifies the Work Hard, Stay Humble attitude that we champion daily. Blake’s talent on the track is phenomenal but he also has been tremendous in bringing the racing community to the diverse children in our country. We’re excited to see what this opportunity will yield for our collaborative efforts as we bring racing to future generations.”

A native of Wellesley,Massachusetts, Lothian has a pair of NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series starts to his credit, both of which came in 2022 with Reaume Brothers Racing, first at Martinsville, and then returning later in the season at IRP.

Lothian has a career-best of 28th in the NASCAR Truck Series, which came in his series debut two years ago at the half-mile paperclip, after finishing a respectable two laps behind the race-leaders.

GGT Energy Solutions has long been committed to supporting drivers and racing teams at all levels, from grassroots to the NASCAR Cup Series. The company actively works with multiple teams to identify savings opportunities which allows for further development in their performance on race day.

Friday’s 200-lap contest from Martinsville will mark just the second time that Young’s Motorsports has brought its second entry to the racetrack in 2024, after the entry returned to the track with Vicente Salas at Circuit of The Americas, two weekends ago.,
