(Martinville, VA) It doesn’t get much better than making a debut at your home track. That’s what Martinsville native Josh Reeves will be doing on Saturday, Oct. 31 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS).
Reeves will drive the No. 74 Dodge at the famed Martinsville Speedway in the Kroger 200 on Halloween for Mike Harmon Racing. Reeves isn’t spooked about his first race in the truck series.
“We’ve got all of the parts and pieces and we’re ready to get started,” he said. “If we come out of the race with a 15th or 20th place finish, that’ll be a great start. We’re aiming for much higher than that, but we’ll be happy with what we can accomplish.”
Reeves, 22, has been busy with testing race cars this season. He participated in his first ARCA Series race in September of 2014 at Salem Speedway in Indiana. Reeves finished 23rd after suffering tire issues during the contest. He gathered the attention of others with his driving and a “never give up” attitude.
Mike Harmon Racing and Manager Danny Glad are working to finalize the details for Reeves’ debut in the 200-lap NCWTS race on the half-mile track known as “The Paperclip”.
The Kroger 200 will begin at 1 p.m. ET on Oct. 31. The event will be televised on Fox Sports 1 and MRN will have the radio broadcast.
