Matt Mills on Saturday’s Race at Bristol Motor Speedway: “I’m excited for the first short track race of the season,” said Mills. “We’ve had really fast Chevrolets to start the season, so I know we’ll have another strong truck this weekend. I’m hopeful that we can run a clean race and put ourselves in a good spot at the finish.”

By The Numbers: Saturday’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway marks Mills’ second NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start at the track. He also has five NASCAR Xfinity Series starts at the Tennessee short 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: Matt Mills and the No. 42 J.F. Electric/Utilitra truck lined up 22nd to start Friday night’s race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Fighting a tight truck, Mills battled for position in the top-20 for much of the race. Contact with the wall late in the race caused a flat tire and forced Mills down pit road for repairs, ultimately leaving the No. 42 team with a 31st-place finish.

Mills on Last Race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway: “We’d just started working our way up the field,” said Mills. “On restarts we just had to be smart and pick them up where we could. As it started getting dicey towards the end, I ultimately got in dirty air.”
