Truck Series Rundown: In five years of Truck Series competition, Boyd has 52 career Truck Series starts with one win, two top-five and two top-10 finishes, and a championship best of 17th in 2019.

Spencer Boyd Pre-Race Quotes:
On Richmond Raceway: “Richmond is my favorite track on the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series circuit. The track reminds me a lot of what I grew up doing. Short tracks and wheel to wheel racing.
“Hopefully, we can have a good run on Saturday afternoon for everyone at Young’s Motorsports and WML Enterprises.”
On Partnering With WML Enterprises: “I’m proud to bring on another Veteran owned company to our sponsor lineup this year,” remarked Spencer Boyd. “It is truly awesome that I get to represent the hard-working team over at WML.
“They have a motto ‘Always Strive for Better Work’ and that means more to me this year than ever before. In my third year with Young’s (Motorsports), we have circled more tracks to improve at and I simply couldn’t do that without the support of my partners.”
