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.
