Brandon Jones on Martinsville Speedway: "We have been running some tracks that are very similar to Martinsville Speedway the past few weeks in the K&N Series, and we have had some great racecars at those tracks, so hopefully we can carry that over to the truck race. I really just want to thank Steve Turner and Harry Scott, as well as my entire Turner Scott Motorsports team. I think the whole team has a lot of confidence from the way our K&N cars have performed, and I look forward to getting on track this weekend and racing on Saturday."
