Stenhouse Jr. on racing at Martinsville:

“Martinsville has always been a tough track for me but it’s Brian Pattie’s favorite track. In 2017, we were able to score two top-10 finishes so we know we can run well there. Qualifying will be really important on Saturday as track position is key. I’m looking to having another solid weekend and end the season on a strong note.”
