Stenhouse on Martinsville:

“Last year we were involved in accidents early in both races. Martinsville is a tough track. Last year was my first time to race there and I learned a lot that I can carry into this weekend. Our main goal is to stay out of trouble and hopefully leave Martinsville with a top-15 finish.”

Kelley on Martinsville:

“Martinsville has been a tough track for our organization. We have made great strides on our short track program this season. Last year, the team got caught up in an accident early on and it is hard to recover from that. Hopefully the rain holds off and we can make a lot of laps and get Ricky some seat time. After Fontana issues, we need to have a strong run at Martinsville.”
