CARMICHAEL AT MARTINSVILLE: Ricky Carmichael will be making his NCWTS debut at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

CARMICHAEL ON TRUCKS: Carmichael's last race came at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, where an early spin in the race relegated him to a 29th-place finish. So far this season, Carmichael has scored two top-five and three top-10 finishes.

CARMICHAEL ON COMPETING AT MARTINSVILLE: "I'm looking forward to going back to Martinsville. We ended up 10th there in the Spring, despite a long day and a few problems, but we worked hard to get where we needed to be in the end to put ourselves in the top-10. I know we're going to go back there with a better piece of equipment and I'm looking forward to improving on that finish."

BEHIND THE WHEEL: Crew chief Doug Randolph has chosen chassis No.13 for Carmichael to pilot at Las Vegas. This truck was previously on-track at Chicago and Kentucky, where he finished 28th and fifth, respectively.

NO BREAK IN THE ACTION FOR CARMICHAEL: While most of his NCWTS competitors were taking the last few weeks off, Carmichael was busy making his NASCAR Nationwide Series debut at Kansas Speedway and followed it up with his second race at Auto Club Speedway in California. He finished 18th and 31st, respectively.

RIDING WITH RICKY: The Monster Energy Chevrolet will be hosting The Apple Mart and Kroger stores on the rear quarter panels this weekend at Martinsville.
