Fontaine on Racing at Martinsville: “The break was nice, but I’m ready to get back to work. Everyone at Niece has worked diligently this season to make sure we come to the track with fast trucks.

“Martinsville is a tough place, but we’re optimistic about the first short track race of the year. Martinsville is such a momentum place. You really need to be able to get the truck to maneuver through the corners, so you can carry the speed on the straightaways.”

Fontaine at Martinsville: Fontaine returns to the site of his first ever NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start, coming in 2016. Saturday’s race will mark Fontaine’s second start at the ‘Paper Clip’.

Recapping Las Vegas: Fontaine put in a solid performance at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, earning his career-best finish of ninth. The result is also Niece Motorsports’ best finish to date.

“I’m really proud of our result at Las Vegas,” said Fontaine. “We’ve now gotten Niece Motorsports their two best finishes in the first three races of the year. Everyone on my team did an amazing job all night, and we’re continuing to improve every week. Thanks to Superior Essex and ProMATIC Automation for all of their support this year.”
