JOSH WILLIAMS

“Martinsville is super fun and I’m excited to be pulling double duty again this weekend between the NXS and the NCS. The racing is really tight and competitive. The only thing better than getting a Martinsville Hot Dog would be the Grandfather Clock, so it’ll be fun going Trophy Hunting to try and get our first win there as a team.” – Josh Williams on Martinsville Speedway  

No. 16 Alloy Employer Services Camaro ZL1

Josh Williams will make his fifth-career NCS start this weekend, his first at Martinsville Speedway.
This weekend will mark Williams’ second NCS start of the 2024 season after competing at Atlanta Motor Speedway earlier this year.

DANIEL HEMRIC

“The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Martinsville, is being ‘busy’ inside the race car. You’re making multiple up-shifts and down-shifts per lap, at least with last year’s package. I’m curious to see how that evolves. I love this racetrack, and I love what it has to offer. If we get a little bit of warm weather, the racetrack really turns into a rubbered-up style of track, which allows you to move around, so if it gets to that point, the racing can be pretty good.” – Daniel Hemric on Martinsville Speedway  

No. 31 Cirkul Camaro ZL1

Daniel Hemric has made two NCS starts at Martinsville Speedway and has earned one top-20 finish.
Hemric earned two top five and five top-10 finishes at Martinsville in the NXS.
So far in the 2024 NCS season, Hemric has earned three top-20 finishes.
