As the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) makes their second stop of the year at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, Kevin Harvick will return to a third Silverado entry for NTS Motorsports, piloting the No. 14 Anderson's Maple Syrup Chevrolet for race No. 19 of the 2013 season. During the Spring race at Martinsville in March, Harvick also drove a third truck for NTS Motorsports, qualifying 16th and leading 11 laps before a tire issue with five laps to go ended the teams day with a 25th-place finish. This time around, Harvick is going after the first win for NTS in the NCWTS and the famed Grandfather Clock the winner receives in Victory Lane.
Since making his first-career NCWTS start at Martinsville Speedway in 1998, Harvick has made 16 starts earning three wins (2009, 2010, 2012), two pole starting positions (2010, 2012), seven top-five finishes, nine top-10 finishes and has led a total of 595 laps while completing 3,657 of 3,760 attempted laps (97.3 percent).
Look close this weekend and you will see Joseph Strader's name on the hood of the No. 14 Anderson's Maple Syrup Chevrolet. Strader won a BBQ contest earlier this season and part of the winning package was to have his name appear on Harvick's Chevrolet for the Martinsville NCWTS event.
In his full-time seat, Harvick pilots the No. 29 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) Chevrolet for Richard Childress Racing (RCR). With four races remaining in the 2013 season, Harvick currently sits fourth in the Sprint Cup Series Chase standings, 26 points behind leader Jimmie Johnson. This season Harvick has earned three wins, eight top-five finishes and 17 top-10 finishes in his quest for the SCS Championship.

From the Driver's Seat with Veteran Kevin Harvick:
Share your thoughts on running the NASCAR Camping World Series Truck race at Martinsville Speedway for NTS Motorsports. "It's definitely different to race at Martinsville Speedway in a truck that I don't own. I'm just getting into someone else's stuff that I haven't really had my hands on, or been able to pay as much attention to as I would have in the past. The guys at NTS have gotten better all season, and it would be nice to get them their first win. Martinsville has been a great race track for us in the (NASCAR Camping World) Truck Series and we're very excited to have Anderson's Maple Syrup on board for this event. I'm really looking forward to the chance to win this race and have some fun as well."
From the Box with Crew Chief Paul Andrews:
"I've been looking forward to coming back to Martinsville to race with Kevin again. The NTS teams prepared us a truck capable of winning in the spring and had it not been for the tire going flat late in the race, I know we would have been right there. With the cooler fall temperatures, I'd like to get the #14 Anderson's Maple Syrup Silverado on the pole this weekend and get the win as well!"
