No. 38 Carson-Newman University Ford Mustang Dark Horse:


“Track position is important everywhere we go, but it’s especially important at Martinsville and to qualify upfront. That part is on my shoulders. I’ve won here in the trucks, so I know what it takes. We’re looking forward to a good finish this weekend.”


“We have really improved on our short-track program this year. Each time we go to Martinsville, I feel as if we are closing the gap between us and bigger teams. Todd (Gilliland) is a proven winner at Martinsville in the truck series and runs well there in Cup, so I expect us to be upfront.”
