“I consider Martinsville Speedway to be one of my favorite tracks. I enjoy the fact that we always get to drive on a different type of track every week. These three races stretch that we end this weekend is a good example; a big superspeedway like Talladega, then a 1.5-mile track at Kansas and coming back here to a half-mile track at Martinsville. That variety makes it fun to me as a driver. With the race starting kind of late on Sunday afternoon we should have a chance to finish under the lights, so that should be cool for the fans to see. Hopefully we can turn our luck around this weekend after two disappointing results at Talladega and Kansas that bumped us from Playoff contention. We are still focused on getting our car to victory lane in these last four races and closing out the season on a high note.”
