Chatting with Grant Enfinger…
“Martinsville is definitely a race of survival. It seems like you are always in traffic, but you need to take care of the brakes and fenders so you have something for the end. We struggled some there last year, but I feel like we have learned a lot since then. I’m looking for us to run up front, and be a factor.”
