NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series driver Robby Lyons will return to the series in 2019 starting with the NextEra Energy 250 from Daytona International Speedway on February 15.

“Daytona, literally just that word itself could define what fuels my ambition and determination every day. To me, it doesn’t get bigger or better than racing at the center of it all, just days before the Daytona 500, said Lyons.”

Lyons who has made 11 starts over the last two seasons will be behind the wheel of the No.42 Sunwest Construction Chevrolet Silverado for Chad Finley Racing.

The 30-year old Florida native will run a part-time schedule for the team this season.

Over the last two seasons Lyons has 3 top-15’s and 9 top-25 finishes in only 11 starts in the series.

His best career finish came in his season-debut at Phoenix in November of 2017 where he finished in the 12th position.

In 2018 Lyons saw his two best finishes of the season come at the season opener at Daytona finishing 13th and Talladega in the fall where he finished 14th.

“My expectations are high. We challenged for the win at Talladega, earned a lot of respect from the veterans out there, like David Gilliland, and I believe we had one of the top-three fastest trucks there in the final laps. We put this Chevy Silverado back together and it’s as fast and sleek looking as it’s ever been. I’d confidently consider us a dark horse to qualify in the top-five and be a contender to take home the trophy, said Lyons.”
