In 22 starts at Martinsville, Sauter has 9 prime-5 and 12 top-10 finishes, with a mean begin of 9.1 and a mean end of 12.zero. And he has exceptional endurance at the monitor that lends itself to beating and banging – he solely has one DNF to his identify.

Crew Chief Spotlight: Mike Hillman Jr.

All however three of his wins came with Todd Bodine. Jeb Burton tallied a victory for him in 2013 and then group proprietor Kyle Busch gained a pair of races with Hillman last yr.

Aside from a number of races with Busch and David Gilliland, in current seasons, Hillman’s had a rotating forged of rising young stars occupying the seat of his truck for many races. Last yr, he worked with eight totally different drivers – together with eight races with Burton. They put together three prime fives and six prime 10s collectively and gained the pole at Iowa.

He broke away from the Gander Outdoor Truck Series in 2015 (Brian Scott) and 2016 (Brandon Jones) to function a NASCAR Xfinity Series crew chief for Richard Childress Racing. And he’s spent 14 races calling the photographs within the Monster Power NASCAR Cup Series – including most just lately for Cody Ware at Daytona this yr.

Friesen trying to spring to success at Martinsville

At present fourth within the NASCAR Gander Outside Truck Series, veteran racer Stewart Friesen is hoping his second full-time season (he also ran 19 of 23 races in 2017) is his breakout yr.

Friesen is coming off his greatest finish of the season, a fourth-place effort at Las Vegas. And he’s heading to a monitor that arguably must be a power – as Friesen made his identify on brief tracks…albeit in the dust.

But Friesen has had combined results at the half-mile monitor…and in four begins there, has tended to carry out better within the fall race. His spring begins over the previous two seasons netted finishes of 25th and 20th, whereas he’s completed sixth and 11th within the two fall Martinsville races he’s contested.

His lone prime-five finish on a short monitor got here final yr at Bristol, the place he completed second.
