Ross Chastain driver of the No. 19 Checkered Flag Foundation Ford F-Series, will make his second start for Brad Keselowski Racing (BKR) in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) during the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway on Saturday, April 6th.
Owner Brad Keselowski’s Checkered Flag Foundation will serve as the primary sponsor of the No. 19 BKR entry this week for the first time this season.
This Saturday will be Chastain’s third career NCWTS start at Martinsville Speedway and his eighth career short track start, with an average finish of 13th at that style track. In last year’s Spring Martinsville race, Chastain put himself on the map with a strong 8th place finish.
Chad Kendrick will lead the No. 19 Ford F-Series team as Crew Chief in Martinsville.
“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to run my third race at Martinsville Speedway with a shot at bringing Brad’s Checkered Flag Foundation Ford F-Series Truck to its first ever Victory Lane. Not only is it a blessing to be a part of such a tremendous team, but I want to be the first NASCAR driver in any Series since 2005 to bring Ford back to Martinsville Speedway’s Victory Lane. It will be my crew chief, Chad Kendrick’s, home track so we have big expectations for Saturday.”- Ross Chastain
