Johnny Sauter No. 13 SealMaster Chevrolet Silverado Preview: Kroger 250 at Martinsville

Sandusky, Oh. (March 24, 2010) -- Johnny Sauter returns to Martinsville Speedway looking for revenge...not against a fellow driver, nor against the track itself, but to set the record straight with "Lady Luck" -- and to prove his mettle. Sauter and the ThorSport Racing team kept digging at the 0.526-mile paperclip-shaped oval last season, complete with truck capable of scoring a top-five finish in both races.

Martinsville is one of the most challenging tracks for a variety of reasons -- mechanical, mental, emotional -- is it hard to get into the right frame of mind for racing there? "The biggest challenge as a driver is to remind yourself to stay patiently aggressive. You don't want to give up that hard earned track position, but you have to keep your head on straight and look at the big picture too. You can have someone beating on your back bumper for 20 laps who is on fresher tires and instead of letting that get to you sometimes it's better to move over and let him go and remind yourself that roles will probably be reversed later on in the race when you're on fresher tires."

As a stand-out performer on the short tracks during your ascendancy to the upper levels of stock car racing, are you looking forward to getting back to some short track racing this weekend? "Oh man, I can't wait to get to Martinsville. Getting back to short track racing is what this is all about, it's where most of us got our start, and it's what we grew up doing. It's why we do this. I love racing at Martinsville and I always look forward to going there."
