MYERSTOWN -- Kyle Martel has a great reason to pull double-duty this weekend at Pocono.
Martel will be driving for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition in both the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race and the Pennsylvania 125 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race, which run back-to-back on Saturday.
"I'll probably have maybe 20 minutes between races, which really isn't a lot of time, when you're in the heat of the moment," said Martel, who's making his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut. "The team's ready and we're ready to raise for awareness across the state."
The Pennsylvania Breast Cancer Coalition promotes breast cancer awareness. Martel's ARCA car and truck are both black with hot pink accents and each include a very large pink ribbon.
"We're hoping to gain awareness with a whole new audience; it's the first time we'll ever be at the Pocono Raceway," said Jennifer Pensinger, the executive director of PA Breast Cancer Coalition.
Martel finished a career-best 10th in the ARCA race at Pocono in 2009, his first season on the circuit. He also finished 12th at Talladega Superspeedway in 2010, and 13th and 14th at Pocono in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
His race team is family-owned; Bill Martel Racing's shop headquarters are in Lebanon County.
The upcoming Pennsylvania ARCA 125 will mark the 55th ARCA race on Pocono's 2.5-mile triangular superspeedway since 1983.
