Robertson Qualifies Fourth In Martinsville
Oct 2, 2010 - updated Oct 2nd, 2010 9:48pm
Web posted by

Martinsville, VA --

For Immediate Release:October 2, 2010

Coming off last weekend’s win at Ace Speedway, Ryan Robertson and the #31 Sheetz Chevrolet took to the track at Martinsville Speedway for the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 qualifying today with high hopes. The 24 year-old driver did not disappoint. Robertson posted the fourth fastest qualifying time among the 85 drivers vying to make the country’s most prestigious late model race on Sunday.



“I’m just numb”, said Robertson. “This is the biggest day of my career so far. I’ve been here enough that I knew I had to get into that first turn hard, and I just dove in. We’d had some good runs in practice, and the crew did a great job getting the car really dialed in. Everything just feels good right now – we’re hitting on all cylinders.



“I’m particularly proud to be able to put the Sheetz logo up front this weekend. They’re a terrific company, and we were out at their store here in Martinsville earlier this week with the car.”



It has been an impressive season for Robertson, who ran at the infamous Bowman Gray Stadium this year, the third generation in his family to do so. By mid-season, Robertson found himself leading the nation in points among NASCAR’s Division II drivers, and finished just a single point out of third place in the stadium standings.



Robertson then turned his eye towards NorthWilkesboro Speedway, finishing third in the limited late model race there last month. The win last weekend at Ace Speedway proved to be just the stepping stone Robertson needed to turn in an impressive qualifying performance under the bright blue skies of Martinsville Speedway this afternoon.



Robertson went out in 80th position among 85 of the most talented late model drivers in the country. The track had been getting slower throughout the day as temperatures warmed, but Robertson turned a lap time of 20.329 seconds with an average speed of 93.148 mph to snag a spot in tomorrow’s 300 lap showcase. It was Robertson’s fifth time at Martinsville, and his first time to make it into the top 22 spots and garner a spot in the race on time rather than competing in one of tomorrow’s heat races.



In addition to primary sponsor Sheetz for this race, Robertson’s other sponsors this season include Carolina Wood Floors, The Law Offices of Timothy D. Welborn, Make-A-Wish®, and Winston-Salem State Motorsports Management.



“We’ve been very fortunate to have the support we have had this year,” said Robertson. “I’m just going to take it as it comes tomorrow. We’re ready. We’ve been waiting for this a long time.”
