Kaden Honeycutt on Friday’s Race at Martinsville Speedway: “I enjoy short track racing, so I’m looking forward to getting to Martinsville with this Niece Motorsports group in our Chevy Accessories Silverado,” said Honeycutt. “Hoping I can carry some momentum from the Orange Krush 200 win at Orange County Speedway last week, over to this weekend. I know Phil [Gould] and the team are working hard to bring us a fast truck. We’ll do our best to run a clean race and be up front at the end when it counts.”

By The Numbers: Friday’s race marks Honeycutt’s 23rd NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series start, and his third at Martinsville Speedway.Honeycutt also has one NASCAR Xfinity Series start at Martinsville Speedway, coming in 2023.

Recapping the Last Race: Ross Chastain and the No. 45 team showed speed in Friday’s practice and qualifying session, earning a fifth-place starting spot for Saturday afternoon’s XPEL 225. Chastain battled a loose-handling race truck for the majority the race. A speeding penalty during green flag pit stops and a spin after contact to the bumper of the No. 45 made it tough for Chastain to work his way back through the field. Phil Gould and team made adjustments throughout the race, with Chastain battling in the top-five during the closing laps, ultimately crossing the line in fifth.

Ross Chastain on Last Race at Circuit of the Americas: “It’s bucket-list stuff to come back and race with Al Niece and the whole Niece team here at Circuit of the Americas,” said Chastain. “Another fifth-place finish, but not the speed we wanted for sure. We struggled with rear grip the whole weekend and Phil Gould and the guys took some big swings at the truck and got it dialed in by the end. I couldn’t be prouder to work with the entire Niece organization and help wherever I can. This weekend was good to get back in the truck and there are some things we can look at to get better. Thank you to TXAPA and MG Machinery for joining us again this weekend and everyone that makes these Chevrolets fast.”
