Young’s Motorsports has hired Mason Massey, a long-time competitor in the lower two NASCAR’s National Series ladder divisions, to pilot the No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado full-time in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2024.
The Douglasville, Georgia-native will begin his first full-time campaign in NASCAR’s National Series with the Fresh from Florida 250 at Daytona International Speedway, which will also mark his second-ever start with Young’s Motorsports — the first of which came at Richmond last July.
BRUNT Workwear and Anderson Power Services, both long-time supporters of Massey in NASCAR’s National Series, will return as anchor partners of the 27-year-old driver this season, as he chases his first-ever top-10 result.
“I couldn’t be more excited to go full-time racing with Tyler and everyone at Young’s Motorsports,” said Massey. “I see the work ethic in all the guys and how much they want it. I knew this was definitely something I wanted to be a part of. I also look forward to bringing BRUNT Workwear and Anderson Power Services on board this year. We’re ready to kick the season off strong in Daytona on Friday night.”
Last season, Massey was scheduled to compete full-time in the NASCAR Truck Series with Reaume Brothers Racing, before that agreement fell apart after just seven events, leaving him to jump between the Xfinity and Truck Series with SS-GreenLight Racing and Young’s Motorsports.
We’re excited to be back for our fourth year supporting Mason and expanding our NASCAR program. Our company’s story and Mason’s story are very similar. From humble beginnings and blue-collar roots, we are building and growing together,” said Eric Girouard, Founder and CEO of BRUNT Workwear. “Our group is pumped for the opportunity Mason has to compete full-time in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series with Young’s Motorsports. We believe that our brand lines up perfectly with not only Mason but also with Young’s Motorsports’ hard-working values.”
Massey is the first driver to be announced to Young’s Motorsports’ lineup for the 2024 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series campaign. However, Massey does have a defacto teammate in Leland Honeyman, who will run full-time in the Xfinity Series for the organization.
“I’m really excited to have Mason full-time with our team this year,” added Young. “He has proven he’s the man for the job. We are working hard to make it a great year, and I’m looking forward to it.”
Last season, Massey partnered with Reaume Brothers Racing for the season-opener at Daytona, finishing a respectable 24th-place while maintaining his position on the lead-lap. While piloting the No. 33 in 2024, Massey had a best finish of 11th place at Texas Motor Speedway.
“Even though it was rain-shortened, I think getting a feel for drafting in the trucks was beneficial,” continued Massey. “Youngs Motorsports has a good track record on superspeedways, including two wins. I hope to keep that going and get a strong start to the 2024 season.”
Massey and Young’s Motorsports will look to begin their season on a strong note, competing in Friday’s Fresh from Florida 250 at Daytona International Speedway.
