It’s very exciting to see Byron run a truck car once again. Possibly, it is a way for him to get a feel of the track again before heading to the Cup Series race.

The Atlanta winner said, “I’m really excited to get in Spire’s truck this week at Martinsville,” Byron added. “Even though it’s been a couple years since I was in a truck at Martinsville, I had good runs before with a couple top-10 finishes, including a third-place result. I’m excited to see how things have changed since that time. Plus, any more track time at Martinsville is always good since it’s such a rhythm-based track. Bono (Kevin Manion) and the No. 7 truck ran well when they were at COTA and he has done a great job at Martinsville in the past, as well. It should be a fun time.”
