No. 34 Long John Silver’s Ford Mustang Dark Horse:


“We have put effort into our short track program this year. We have seen the performance at tracks like Phoenix and Bristol with our Ford Mustang Dark Horse. Martinsville is a real tough track, but we’re up to the challenge this weekend.”


“We’re looking to regain some momentum at Martinsville this week, Richmond did not go as planned and were hoping we got a lot of bad breaks out of the way. Martinsville is a very unique and exciting racetrack and were looking to forward to getting there. We have a lot of good notes from this track between our teammates and tech alliance that should lead to a solid weekend.”
