Hornaday is 29 points out of the top-10 and 169 points behind leader, Ty Dillon. Ron Hornaday, Jr. on Martinsville…”Martinsville is always a fun place to race. We race in such close quarters at high speeds, and when you get 35 other trucks on the track, it’s a recipe for great racing. The keys to success at Martinsville are having a good truck and patience. If you have a good truck you can focus on the bigger picture and your patience doesn’t seem to wear as thin.” “We had a pretty decent run going in the spring until we had battery problems mid-way through the race. Our short-track program has been pretty decent this year so I’m looking forward to a great run this weekend. It would mean so much to me and this team to get Joe his first win in the series in his home state of Virginia.” Tune In… All the NCWTS action from Martinsville Speedway will be LIVE on SPEED starting with both Friday practice sessions at 11:00 a.m. ET and 2:00 p.m. ET on October 26.
