Ragan on racing at Martinsville Speedway:

“I really enjoy going to Martinsville, it’s one of my favorite tracks on the schedule. It’s such a unique track and it’s nice that it is pretty close to home. Coming off a strong run at Charlotte our UPS team should be primed up and ready for another. Martinsville is a fun track with aggressive racing. Short track racing is my favorite and I think we’ve got a fast UPS Ford for this weekend.”

Crew chief Drew Blickensderfer on racing at Martinsville Speedway:

“I’m actually pretty excited about Martinsville this weekend. David runs well there, has a good record at Martinsville and is the main guy around Roush for the short track tests. He’s been to Little Rock a few times already this year. We’ve got momentum on our side coming off a top-10 finish at Charlotte and it seems like we keep getting better and faster every week. Hopefully we can carry over the momentum and get a good finish in our UPS Ford this weekend at Martinsville.”
