Rob Fuller on Teaming Up With TRG Motorsports: "I am really excited every time I race at Martinsville Speedway. I really wanted to race the truck here but the R3 Nationwide teams are competing in Memphis. TRG stepped up to help out and give me the opportunity for a solid run at Martinsville this weekend. I can't thank them enough for that."

Rob Fuller on Racing at Martinsville Speedway: "This will be the first time I race the truck at Martinsville. It is one of NASCAR's oldest tracks and has a lot of history. While growing up I got to watch my dad and my heroes Ritchie Evans and Charlie J race here in the early 80's so it has always been a special place to me. Martinsville is a physical race track. We need to focus on keeping the fenders on the truck and we should come out with a solid finish."
