From the Driver’s Seat with Gray Gaulding:
“This is what I have been looking forward to for quite some time. I got my first opportunity to test a truck last year at Kentucky Speedway and then we tested at Martinsville last week but nothing can quite compare to racing for the first time. Jeff Hensley has gathered a good group of guys and they put in countless hours of preparation knowing how important this is, not only for me and my family but for NTS Motorsports, our sponsors, and everyone involved.”
From the Box with Crew Chief Jeff Hensley:
“I am proud of what this team has evolved into, we tested at Martinsville last week and we made a lot of great gains and look to implement them this weekend.”
A Note from Team Owner Bob Newberry:
“I am really looking forward to having Gray debut this weekend at Martinsville in the No.20 truck. This race will forever make a mark in the record books when Gray takes the green flag. He has tested in the truck, the team and myself have a high level of confidence going into the weekend.“
