Travis Kvapil on driving at Martinsville Speedway
“Martinsville [Speedway] is one of my favorite tracks that we go to. It just fits my driving style—I’ve always run really well there, and I’ve had some really competitive trucks there over the years. Martinsville [Speedway] is also a very special track for me because it’s where I made my first [NASCAR Sprint] Cup Series start. I’ve been close to winning in a truck at Martinsville [Speedway] a few times, but we just haven’t quite been able to get it done. I’m excited to go back and optimistic that we’ll be able to finish up front this weekend.”
Crew Chief Rick Viers on racing at Martinsville Speedway
“Martinsville [Speedway] is a great place; it’s a fun track with a lot of history. Knowing Travis’ background there makes this a race that the International Truck/Monaco RVs Toyota Tundra team is really excited about. We’ve had a lot of time to prepare for this weekend; we’ve spent a lot of time on the pull-down rig and at the seven post. I think this race will be a good opportunity for us to bounce back from the first three races. We’ve had a lot of bad luck, so we’re focusing on the things that we can control to run back up front where we belong.”
