MARKS RETURNS TO MARTINSVILLE:
Justin Marks will make his second career NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday. The track, which is best known for its paper-clip shape and 12° banking, is one of the most challenging tracks on the circuit. “It’s obviously a very difficult race track; its one of the most difficult tracks on the schedule,” said Marks. “I feel like we had a pretty good test and I feel like we’re making progress every time, so I’m looking forward to it. Martinsville is one of those tracks that I’m going to have to lean on the veterans as much as I can and get as much advice as I can over the course of the weekend because typically the new guys, or the less experienced guys, don’t do that well there.
There is such a style to getting around there fast. I really enjoy driving the track; I think it’s a really cool venue and sort of a unique challenge. I’m encouraged because I feel like this team is getting better and better every week. We’re ready to apply it and get a good finish.”
THE CREW CHIEF’S CHOICE FOR MARTINSVILLE:
Crew Chief Doug Wolcott has selected chassis No. 54 for the 13th Annual Kroger “250”. This truck was last raced by former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion, Jack Sprague at Martinsville Speedway in 2008. The truck qualified 15th and finished 11th with Sprague at the controls. Since then, the truck underwent a complete overhaul including a new front clip and body.
MEET MARKS ON SATURDAY!:
Justin Marks, teammate Cole Whitt, and other NASCAR Camping World Truck Series drivers will take part in an autograph session on Saturday, April 2nd from 9 to 10 a.m. The autograph session will take place across from the ticket office at Martinsville Speedway.
MARKS PREPARES FOR MARTINSVILLE WITH MOTOR MILE TEST:
Justin Marks and the No. 66 GoPro team took their Chevrolet Silverado race truck to Motor Mile Speedway in Dublin, Va. last week for a private test session to prepare for the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway. “I think the test went real well,” said Marks. “I think the guys all worked together better than they have at any other race track this year, races included. We were able to get through a lot of changes and stick to the plan really closely. The truck responded really well to the different stuff that we did and we changed a lot of geometry. I think it was great because now I am comfortable in the truck and I know how to drive it. I feel like it was a really efficient test. It was definitely great for us to do because I think we learned a lot about this truck. “
