Young‘s Motorsports welcomes Layne Riggs to the team as the primary driver of the No. 02 Chevrolet Silverado RST for the 13th race of the Truck Series season.
The son of former NASCAR veteran Scott Riggs stormed into the spotlight last year by beating out Peyton Sellers to become the youngest NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series champion in series history.
In addition to the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series championship in 2022, Riggs also captured the Southeast Region and South Boston Speedway track titles.
The second-generation also competed in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN® Truck Series last season in a limited Truck Series schedule for Halmar-Friesen Racing, as teammates to Stewart Friesen, Jessica Friesen and Todd Bodine. He earned a career-best seventh-place showing at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.
This year, Riggs returned to the Truck Series at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway in March with TRICON Garage, while also competing on the ultra-competitive CARS Tour.
In between race weekends, Riggs is a fourth-year student at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, studying mechanical engineering.
