“Martinsville is one of my favorite places to race. I don’t really have any specific reason as to why, other than it is like how most of us grew up racing on short tracks around the country. Since the first time that I went there, I feel like I had a good understanding of how to get around that track. It will also be nice just being back close to home and not having to get on an airplane this weekend. Martinsville is close enough to drive back-and-forth each day. Hopefully we can have a good run this weekend to gain some ground in the points and get past some of the bad luck that we have had the first few weeks.”
