Matt Mills on Saturday’s Race at Atlanta Motor Speedway: “I’m proud of the J.F. Electric/Utilitra Chevrolet this team brought to the track in Daytona, we showed a lot of speed,” said Mills. “I’m looking forward to more of the same this weekend in Atlanta. We’re going to do our best to run a clean race and be there at the end when it counts.”

By The Numbers: Saturday’s race at Atlanta Motor Speedway marks Mills’ second NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start at the track.

Mills also has seven NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the 1.5-mile track.

On the Truck: Mills’ No. 42 Chevrolet Silverado will race with support from longtime partners J.F. Electric and Utilitra.  

Recapping the Last Race: Mills and the No. 42 J.F. Electric/Utilitra team advanced to the final round of qualifying, ending up with a fourth-place starting spot for Friday night’s race. Early contact left the nose of the No. 42 machine with considerable damage to the nose that necessitated a pit stop under caution to repair. Down on power toward the end of the race, the Mills crossed the finish-line in 26th.

Mills on Last Race at Daytona International Speedway: “We started the day off pretty good,” said Mills. “After the initial contact we had to rethink our strategy and hang back a little before the truck began to lose power. Unfortunately, we just couldn’t recover. I’m thankful for everyone at Niece, J.F. Electric and Utilitra and am ready for Atlanta.”
