POST-RACE REPORT: MARTINSVILLE
Martinsville, Va. (April 15, 2022) - The entire G2G Racing team was looking for a rebound weekend with Kaden Honeycutt behind the wheel of the team’s No. 46 Toyota Tundra at the Martinsville Speedway. Unfortunately, a good run was turned south by a mid-race accident.
The weekend started off rocky, as rain washed out both practice and qualifying sessions. Therefore, Honeycutt was placed in the 34th starting position for 200 laps of action.
As the race started, Honeycutt settled in, looking to make his way through the field. He quickly made his way inside the Top-25, as he set his eyes on taking his Tundra to the Top-10.
As the laps ticked by, Honeycutt kept methodically moving through the pack. As Stage 1 came to a close, Honeycutt found himself battling for the 11th position. Unfortunately, he couldn’t quite close the deal, recording a finish of 12th.
During the stage break, Honeycutt brought his Tundra to the attention of the crew, changing tires and filling the truck full of fuel, and adjustments. He returned back to the track in 10th, but NASCAR determined he had sped on pit road, forcing him to restart from the back.
As the race resumed, he set in to once again make his way to the front.
Multiple cautions plagued the second stage, but Honeycutt capitalized and climbed his way inside the Top-25. As the stage was coming to a close Honeycutt brought the truck back down pit road for service, which cost him losing a lap. He came across the line 33rd to end Stage 2.
As the race resumed, Honeycutt found himself in the Lucky Dog position, being forced to race as hard as possible to keep that position. As the laps ticked away, he fought to stay in that position, until tragedy struck.
While battling with another driver for the position, he and his fellow competitor made contact, sending his truck into the outside wall. Thus, ending his night. He was credited with a 34th place finish.
G2G Racing will look to regroup and head to the dirt covered Bristol Motor Speedway for the second annual Pinty’s Truck Race on Dirt. Action gets started at 8:00pm Eastern, with the action being broadcasted live on Fox Sports 1 and SiriusXM NASCAR.
Mooresville, N.C. (April 7th, 2022) - The Aledo, Texas driver, Kaden Honeycutt, will make his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Martinsville Speedway on Thursday night in the G2G Racing #46 Toyota Tundra sporting the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation (FOJ) for Tim Viens.

Honeycutt, who is currently competing in the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour for Nelson Motorsports and sits 2nd in points after the first two races of the year, is looking forward to getting in a NASCAR truck for the first time at the famed “Paper-Clip”
“I am super excited about this opportunity. There are so many people I want to thank that have been part of my career that has gotten me to this point. It is all surreal to me right now, but this is everything I’ve worked hard for. Everything that I and my family have gone through to get to this moment. A huge thank you to Tim Viens for taking the chance on me and the people behind the scenes that made this possible and they know who they are. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. We are going to make the most out of this opportunity and I will give 150% every lap” said Honeycutt.
Honeycutt finished second in points in the 2021 CARS Tour championship as well as winning Rookie of the Year honors. Kaden recorded 2 wins, 6 top five, 12 top tens in 13 starts. He was the only driver in the series to complete 100% of the laps. The Texas driver will make the trip from Martinsville to Greenville-Pickens Speedway for round three of the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour on Saturday.
“I am excited to see a talented young man like Kaden make his debut with our program at Martinsville. So many of the top drivers in NASCAR have made their career starts at this track, and Kaden brings a ton of short-track experience with him. We look forward to Kaden joining G2G Racing this week,” said team owner Tim Viens.
Honeycutt also races in a variety of other series/cars both on pavement and dirt, including 7 wins in a row in his dirt car in seven starts in 2022. Kaden drives for Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing (RFK) in the iRacing eNASCAR Coca-Cola Series as well.
