HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., March 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TrüNorth™ Warranty Programs of North America (TrüNorth™) will extend their partnership from the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) with Reid Wilson into his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) endeavors. TrüNorth™ is the leading provider of commercial asset related warranty programs and services for dealers, fleets, owner-operators, and commercial finance companies.
"We're proud of Reid's racing accomplishments," said TrüNorth™ SVP, John Gates. "We are excited to be a part of his next big step in NASCAR."
This month, TrüNorth™ rolled out the industry's only all-inclusive original equipment manufacturer (OEM) warranty, OEM2 Powered by TrüNorth™ and will be featured on the No. 20 Young's Motorsports Chevrolet driven by Wilson. OEM2 Powered by TrüNorth™ offers unique benefits well beyond traditional OEM warranties, providing customers added assurance in protecting their commercial asset investments by lowering the risk of unexpected failure costs beyond ordinary factory warranties.
"I'm honored to represent TrüNorth™," exclaimed Wilson. "They've made it possible for me to advance up the NASCAR ladder. The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is the perfect place for them to connect with their market because many people in the trucking industry are NASCAR fans."
Young's Motorsports recently announced the addition of Reid Wilson to their driver lineup in the No. 20 Chevrolet Silverado. The 21-year-old is set to make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut during the Alpha Energy Solutions 250 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway on Saturday, March 24.
"Reid was one of the first drivers in our development program here at Young's Motorsports," said team principal Tyler Young. "It's great that we're able to provide a place and an opportunity for him to progress as a driver and up the NASCAR ranks."
Over the past two years, Wilson has competed part-time in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East (NKNPSE) driving the no. 66 TruNorth™ Warranty Programs Chevrolet with Young's Motorsports. The Huntersville, N.C., native is ranked 10th for best on track production of all NASCAR K&N Pro Series drivers and is currently ranked in the top-75 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series prospects by MotorsportsAnalytics.com.
"In eight K&N races with Reid, we had four top-10 finishes," said Andrew Abbott, who served as Wilson's NKNPSE crew chief and will continue his role on the No. 20 truck. "He has shown a lot of growth, and I think we will be able to put together a good run at Martinsville."
Wilson will also use his NCWTS debut to promote the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). He is a member of the MDA Muscle Team, a group of professional athletes that volunteer to raise awareness and funds for MDA research and services. Wilson also volunteers each summer as an MDA Summer Camp Counselor.
"I am really excited to get behind the wheel of the No. 20 OEM2 Powered by TrüNorth™ truck at Martinsville," said Wilson. "I can't thank TrüNorth™ and Young's Motorsports enough for providing me this opportunity to drive and also to allow me to bring awareness to MDA, an organization I have been a part of for ten years. March is National MDA Shamrock month and being able to put them on display at a NASCAR event will bring even more attention to this great cause."
