Additional Info
– Looking to make his second start at the half-mile paperclip, Sargeant took part in the NCWTS rookie test at Martinsville Speedway one week ago. Teammates Johnny Sauter and Cody Coughlin were also in attendance at the test for observation and feedback.


– Sargeant will pilot chassis no. 114 this weekend. This chassis was raced five times last year by Kaz Grala, including last season’s spring race at Martinsville Speedway where he finished 14th. Chassis no. 114 is also the same chassis Ben Kennedy piloted to his first NCWTS victory in 2016 at Bristol Motor Speedway. In total this chassis has one win, three top-five and seven top-10 finishes across 11 races and three drivers.


– Securing a sixth-place finish three weeks ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Sargeant is currently eighth in the NCWTS driver point standings, only two points behind seventh-place.


“I think Martinsville (Speedway) should be pretty good for us. I was able to test there last week in the rookie test and it went pretty well. My crew chief Doug Randolph helped me quite a bit, and he’s seemed to do well there in the past as well. Plus, I’ll really try to lean on my teammate Johnny Sauter while we’re there. I was able to run at Martinsville in 2015 and one of the big things I did then just followed Johnny around to see the line he would run. He definitely knows how to get around that place. I just plan on applying everything I’ve learned from him and Doug, plus my short track experience, and hopefully, we can get a good finish, if not a win, for our Performance Plus team.”
