Jeb Burton on his Second Start at Martinsville Speedway
"I feel very prepared to head to Martinsville. I grew up on short tracks, so my comfort level is higher. I've stayed busy over the downtime by testing both the No. 4 Arrowhead Chevy and my No. 4 Arrowhead late model. After a strong finish like Daytona, I'm determined to keep the momentum alive and winning at Martinsville Speedway would be a dream come true for me. After all the hard work I've witnessed at Turner Scott Motorsports in the past few weeks, bringing home the grandfather clock would feel amazing."
