MINGUS AT MARTINSVILLE… Coming off a career-best finish at Talladega, Mason Mingus heads to Martinsville Speedway this weekend in the No. 15 Call 811 Before You Dig Chevrolet Silverado for the Kroger 200.
RACE RECAP… The 20-year-old qualified 19th last weekend in the Fred’s 250 at Talladega Speedway. Mingus avoided all mayhem during the 94-lap event, including a late-race wreck that ended the race under caution. The No. 15 Call 811 Before You Dig Chevy came home in third place, a career-best finish for Mingus and Billy Boat Motorsports.
FAST FACTS… The Brentwood, Tennessee native finished 15th in the event at Martinsville last year.
