• Will be making his sixth NCWTS start of the season, all in the No. 29 RAM for Brad Keselowski Racing.
• Scored sixth-place finish in most recent start at Talladega Superspeedway (race No. 17).
• Claimed first NCWTS victory at Iowa Speedway in his third series start. The win was the first for RAM since Dennis Setzer won at Martinsville in March 2008.
• Become the youngest winner in series history at 18 years of age when he won at Iowa, surpassing Kyle Busch.
• Has led 66 laps this season – all in the last three consecutive NCWTS races.
• Brad Keselowski Racing is sixth in the NCWTS owner standings, 54 behind leader Richard Childress (No. 3).
• Average finish in five races this season is 7.0 while his average start position is 10.8.
• Will be making his first Martinsville Speedway start this weekend.
• Started fifth and finished sixth in series debut at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.
• Has completed 100 percent of total possible laps this season (all 668 laps). Owns one win and two top 10s in two NCWTS short track starts this season.

“We tested at Little Rock last week and sorted a few things out; we were really happy with what we found. I think we have a really good RAM for this weekend from the testing and data that I’ve seen. We’ll see when we get out there but I’m really happy with what we did with the truck at Little Rock, the changes we made and how it reacted. I think we can really finish top five. If we can come out of there with a good top five and the front and rear bumpers still intact, that’d be a good day. This will be my first time racing at Martinsville. It’s what I’m used to from late model racing.”
---- Ryan Blaney

“Ryan has been around the race track at Martinsville his whole life but never raced on it. He understands some of the challenges that we will be facing there. Track position is huge, so we’ll work on qualifying quite a bit. We did a test at Little Rock. Ryan looks like he’s got a really good line and understanding of what it’s going to take to win there.”
