Tommy Joe Martins & Gilreath Farms 2021 NASCAR Season is about to kick-off! And, Tommy Joe Martins will continue his duties on track in 2021 as the team’s full-time driver. Also, veteran Crew Chief Buddy Sisco will continue calling the shots on top of the box for Martins.
Gilreath Farms are confirmed and will return to the No. 44 Camaro in 2021 for multiple races each, taking the season opener at Daytona in just a few weeks.
Having Ken Gilreath & AAN back on the car was critical to all this,” Martins said. “2020 was a tough year for everyone. Knowing they’re sticking by us & wanting to do more with MMS – that just means so much to me and the team.
Additionally, Martins himself has moved to Mooresville, North Carolina to take on a full-time role as General Manager of Martins Motorsports. The Como, Mississippi native was serving as a racing instructor at Ron Fellows Performance Driving School in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Plans for 2021 NASCAR season
With these plans in place, Martins is hoping to capitalize on a good season in 2020. Scoring 15 top-20’s, nine top-15’s, and the team’s first-ever top-10 at Texas, the No. 44 finished the season 20th in the final points standings.
At the end of last year we showed up every race expecting to finish top-15,” Martins said. “But the series is tougher than ever this year. I think there’s gonna be something like 43 full-time entries. That’s wild. I mean we only start 36 cars every week. Top20’s & top15’s are still the goals but we know it’s going to be a challenging year with the depth of the field. We’re ready to take it on.
The 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season will go green on Saturday, February 13th for the running of the ‘Beef. It’s What’s For Dinner. 300. Coverage begins at 5:00 PM EST on FOX Sports 1.

About Gilreath Farms
Gilreath Farms of Knoxville, TN are premium Red Angus ranchers promoting the prime quality of the often-overlooked Red Angus breed. In many areas of the country, Black Angus has more name recognition than Red Angus, and we see this reflected in market prices. Gilreath Farms, a firm believer in the superiority of the Red Angus breed, would like to change that.
