Hughes to Help Raise Awareness for Carilion Children’s in Debut at Martinsville

Tyler Hughes will attempt to make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at the end of next month driving for Long Motorsports per a team release. The Cordova Maryland native has made nine starts in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East with a best finish of eighth last season at New Jersey Motorsports Park. Hughes will team with Long Motorsports to help raise awareness for Carilion Children’s.

“The best part about this whole experience is truly supporting Carilion Children’s.” Hughes remarked in the team release. “I love interacting with kids at the race track on a weekly basis. It’s an awesome opportunity to be able to support Carilion Children’s and to be a part of a hospital dedicated to making sure children have the right care.”

Long Motorsports has made two starts in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series this season both with Ted Minor. Engine issues plagued the team last weekend at Chicago but the team still picked up their best finish of the season (26th).
