Champion Machinery sponsoring Chastain at Martinsville

Mooresville, NC (March 21, 2017) - Champion Machinery, a widely recognized company within the racing community as the number one supplier of late-model name brand used CNC machines has joined Premium Motorsports as a primary partner for the team's-chartered No.15 in the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, 'STP 500' at Martinsville Speedway.

Ross Chastain, who's been successfully establishing his footstep in the Cup Series this year will continue to pilot the car for Premium Motorsports at the paperclip.

"Going to Martinsville for the first time in a cup car will be a challenge for sure and only having one day of practice won't make it any easier. But Martinsville is one of my favorite places to make laps, so I'll be smiling in the car all weekend! Running 4 cup races in a row in the 15 car has helped me so much on track. The team and I continue to learn about each other and the mechanical changes we've made to the car are improving each time we get on track. I'm looking forward to it and I think we can have some fun out there." - Ross Chastain
