MCMURRAY ON MARTINSVILLE:
“I always enjoy going at Martinsville. It’s one of my favorite tracks on the circuit, and I can’t really pinpoint why other than I’ve always felt comfortable there. It’s the shortest track on the circuit and it’s how most of us grew up racing–on small half-mile ovals. One thing about where Martinsville falls on the schedule, it’s usually colder than what we’re used to both in the spring and the fall. Hopefully we unload fast, have a great qualifying effort and get a good starting spot for Sunday.”
