John Andretti on Martinsville Speedway ... "I love Martinsville! We always race well there. In fact, I can only remember having one bad race at Martinsville. If Friday goes well and we qualify on time, I will feel really good on Sunday morning. Our crew chief is a strong short track racer and I have every confidence that we will have a good car. Of course, there is little room for error at Martinsville so we will have to be perfect for Friday and then we can have a great race on Sunday."
