Ross Chastain Quote

“It’s Martinsville race week. I am so excited to go to Martinsville. The thing that I am most disappointed about is that we don’t have practice this week. I love rolling out on those early Friday morning truck practices trying to get temperature in the tires. We will be doing that right off the bat in the race, and that is not going to be easy. I know my Kaulig Racing group will have an awesome racecar prepared for me with our Nutrien Ag Solutions car.

AJ Allmendinger is going to be in another Nutrien Ag Solutions car! His is brighter, so I will definitely be able to see it in the mirror, because he is going to be behind me. This is going to be our ticket – our last chance to go lock ourselves into Phoenix and fight for a championship the following week. I can’t wait! Above all else, I am just excited to get to make laps at Martinsville in a Xfinity car. It’s the first time the Xfinity Series has been there in a long time.

We just released episode eight of Two-Track Mind on NASCAR’s YouTube channel, so be sure to check that out. Learn all about FFA and some sugar beets. I learned a lot, and I think you all will too.”
