I'm so excited to announce I'll be competing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series full time in 2016 for our family team, Martins Motorsports. With a technical partnership with Gallagher Motorsports, I truly believe this is the best opportunity I've ever had in my NASCAR career.
As far as equipment goes, we'll be running Chevrolets with SB2 motors, to be maintained by Mark Smith and his team at Pro Motors. Our shop will be based out of Mooresville, NC, the NASCAR home base, offering our small team a convenience our previous effort out of Nashville in 2014 never had.
Kevin Eagle will be our Crew Chief. He's served as a Crew Chief on several cars in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and most recently worked as both Car Chief & Crew Chief for the #98 car in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series for Phil Parsons Racing & then Premium Motorsports.
We've already gotten some great partners for the upcoming year. I'm excited to announce Diamond Gusset Jeans as our sponsor for Daytona, and would like to say a very special thank you to David Hall at DG for his support of my racing career. Also would like to say thank you to our good friends Rodney and Lynn Riessen at Riessen Construction, & RPM Trailer Sales for their associate sponsorship. I can't tell you how thankful we are to have your support this year.
It'll be the first time I've raced in NASCAR since 2014 in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, and I couldn't be more excited about it. I'm even getting to run my favorite racing number, and the first number I ever ran in NASCAR - the 44. I'll still be working at Ron Fellows Performance Driving School part time throughout the season, and I'm thankful for Rick Malone and the entire staff of instructors for their support of my career.
See you at Daytona!
