Boyd, 23, competed full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series last year in team owner Bobby Dotter’s No. 76 Chevrolet. The Missouri native has six career Truck Series starts, most recently entering three races on the 2017 slate.
“This is an amazing opportunity for me with a team that is committed to running up front,” Boyd said in a release provided by the organization. “I learned a ton in my first full-time season in the Xfinity Series last year and the Youngs have given me the opportunity to build on that this year. For me and my career, it’s about continuing to gain experience and performing better, so that’s what we’re going to do in 2019.”
The organization indicated that Andrew Abbott would return as crew chief of the No. 20 Chevrolet. Young’s Motorsports expanded to two full-time NGOTS teams last season with Austin Hill as full-time driver of the No. 02 and a total of 10 drivers sharing the No. 20 seat.
NASCAR Next prospect Tanner Thorson drove the No. 20 in 10 races, with Tate Fogleman (three races), Max Tullman (two races) and Austin Dillon, Michel Disdier, Daniel Hemric, Scott Lagasse Jr., Bubba Wallace, Reid Wilson and Tyler Young (one race each) rounding out the 2018 roster.
Young’s indicated that more announcements for the organization’s 2019 partnerships were still to come.
