Josh Berry believes that participating in late model events alongside his Xfinity Series schedule helps him keep the good form.
Josh Berry will continue his rookie Xfinity Series season today at Martinsville, but he is definitely a familiar face in the racing world. Berry is a well-known late model car driver and has accomplished quite a lot there, including the 2020 NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series title. Berry keeps driving late models even now and during the Easter break, he has won the race at Florence Motor Speedway. The no.9 JR Motorsports car driver spoke about how useful that experience was and what it meant for him.
“I don’t think it’s really a confidence thing for me,” Berry told ASN Motorsports. “I’ve run late model races a long time, won a lot of races. I think it’s just more about kind of keeping things normal for me.”
“Especially, last year, when we were going for the Advance Auto Parts National Championship. We raced every week, sometimes a couple of times a weekend. I think it just makes me stay in racing, just good for me, just staying busy, and working on the car. The cars are way different, the races are way different,” he added.
Josh Berry also said that those races helped have extra time together with the other team members.
“I think it was just good for me to go race and I’m very close with all the guys on the team there, so any time we can go race together and have some fun and take the opportunity. So, thankfully, we were able to do that the last couple of weeks, but we’re looking forward to getting to Martinsville on Friday now.”
Josh Berry will start Friday’s Xfinity Series race at Martinsville Speedway 29th.
