Kyle Benjamin (born November 3, 1997) is an American professional stock car racing driver. He currently competes part-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, driving the No. 18 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing, and part-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, driving the No. 54 Toyota Tundra for DGR-Crosley. He is a member of the 2015 NASCAR Next class and has formerly competed in the K&N Pro Series East with Ranier Racing with MDM, and is the youngest winner ever in the ARCA Racing Series.[1]

Racing career

Early years

Starting to race competitively when he was six years old, Benjamin became the youngest winner of the Bandolero nationals, winning the event when he was ten years old.[2] Three years later, he moved into late model racing, in both the Pro and Stock divisions. At the age of fifteen, Benjamin captured the World Series of Asphalt title at New Smyrna Speedway, and won at various other notable tracks around the country such as Winchester Speedway and Lucas Oil Raceway.[3]

ARCA Racing Series

Running a partial schedule for Venturini Motorsports in 2013, Benjamin won the pole at Toledo Speedway to become the series youngest pole winner and won in only his sixth start at Madison International Speedway to become the series' youngest winner at the time.[4] He won two starts later as well.[5] Running a limited schedule for Roulo Brothers Racing in 2014, Benjamin switched to his own team in mid-2014 due to underwhelming performance.[6] After reuniting with Venturini for a race in 2015,[7] Benjamin ran a limited schedule in 2016 as part of his affiliation with Ranier Racing with MDM.[8]

K&N Pro Series East

Running a race for Ken Schrader Racing in 2013,[9] then three for his own team in 2014,[10] Benjamin caught his break in 2015, winning his first race (at Bristol Motor Speedway),[11] being named to the NASCAR Next class,[12] and finishing ninth in points.[13] Signing on with Ranier Racing with MDM before the 2016 season, Benjamin won five poles, three races and finished runner-up to Justin Haley by only twenty-two points.[14]

Xfinity Series

On April 5, 2017, it was announced that Benjamin would run five races for Joe Gibbs Racing in the 2017 NASCAR Xfinity Series: three in the No. 18 (2 at Iowa Speedway and Kentucky Speedway) and two in the No. 20 (his debut at Richmond International Raceway and a race at Pocono Raceway).[15] He won his first pole at Pocono, and went on to lead 28 laps, the second-most of anybody else behind eventual winner Brad Keselowski. At Iowa, Benjamin led five laps, but lost out to JGR teammate Ryan Preece and finished second.[16] He returned to Joe Gibbs Racing in 2018, running Atlanta in February and finishing 8th. He also drove for Joe Gibbs Racing at Iowa in July and Mid-Ohio in August.

Camping World Truck Series

On March 19, 2018, it was announced that Benjamin will be making his Truck Series debut driving the No. 54 Tundra for DGR-Crosley at Martinsville. Benjamin finished second after leading many laps in the final stage.
