Fast Facts: This year’s race will be the first under the lights at Martinsville Speedway.  After a test session one week ago, most drivers agreed that the racing will be even better under the lights than it was in the sunshine. Philip Morris returns to the race looking for his fourth win, while Lee Pulliam will be looking to tie Morris with his third. Tommy Lemons, Jr. will also be looking for his third grandfather clock. Defending winner Mike Looney returns to Martinsville one year after his underdog win. Late Model Stock Car aces such as Josh Berry, Deac McCaskill, Matt Bowling and Peyton Sellers will all be looking for their first win in the race.
