From the Cockpit: 

Brandon Jones: “We have a great notebook as we head to Martinsville Speedway – the place where I captured my win this year. I know the No. 19 guys and myself still have a lot of drive left in us to make the Championship 4. Our plan is simple this weekend; we just need to go out and be there at the end to capture the win. We can’t worry about things out of our control. We must concentrate on the task at hand, be aggressive, and fight until the very last lap. I honestly think Martinsville is going to be good race for us. Our team knows we can run well there and put our Menards/Tuscany Toyota GR Supra in victory lane at the end of the day.”
