CHRIS FONTAINE AND THE GLENDEN ENTERPRISES TEAM HEADED TO MARTINSVILLE

Chris Fontaine and the Glenden Enterprises NASCAR Camping World Truck Series team are headed to their first NCWTS race of the 2009 season this weekend at Martinsville Speedway.

"The goal is to qualify for the race, get in the top 15, get through the pit stops and get through the race so we can have everything ready for the next one. We want to learn everything we can so we will know what to expect in the future, and do the best we can," Fontaine said.

Fontaine said his pit crew will be made up of current Glenden Enterprises team members from the shop and others who have helped him in the past in Late Models. They include Kevin Ingram, Crewchief, David Tullis, Thomas Rule, Dennis Dean, Tav Gary, Bubba Edwards, and Late Model standout B.J. McCloud, who will be spotting for Fontaine.

Fontaine has won both dirt track races that he has run at Ocala Speedway in Ocala, Florida this season, making his record to date 2 for 2.

Looking forward to this coming weekend's NASCAR Camping World Truck race in Martinsville, Virginia, Fontaine said,"Hopefully we can take this momentum and turn it into confidence and get up there."

"The first thing we have to do is make the race. We have to get in on time, we don't have any provisional points, so that is goal number one. After that, anything is good. A top 15 would be great, but first things first, we have got to make the race," Fontaine said.

Fontaine will be driving the Glenden Enterprises/Yellowstone Energy Services Chevy Silverado #84 in the Kroger 250.
