Last time out at Martinsville Speedway, Ross Chastain (RBR No. 92 Ford F-150) had a bit of late-race heartbreak ruining any chances he had to win.

This time around, Chastain feels Martinsville owes him something. Starting eighth in the 2013 Kroger 200, Chastain made his way around eventual race winner, Darrell Wallace, Jr. and went on to lead 14 laps with his sights set on his first series win. A pit call to stay out under caution, when a majority of the trucks on the lead lap pit for fresh tires, left Chastain's No. 19 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford (his 2013 ride) as a sitting duck on the ensuing restart. Chastain finished the race 17th.-Red Flag Communications
