On the Martinsville Speedway
“I am looking forward to getting to the Martinsville Speedway this week! Last year I ran the NASCAR Xfinity Series race, and really enjoyed the track. The short tracks are where I got my start in racing on the West Coast, so I am looking forward to getting to our first short track of the year. Our No. 9 Chevrolet Silverado has had speed this year, and I am confident in showcasing that speed at the Martinsville Speedway this Thursday.”
