Getty Mark Martin will serve as a crew chief for a Super Late Model race.

A member of the NASCAR Hall of Fame is about to take on a new role for a race in mid-July. Mark Martin will serve as the crew chief during a Super Late Model race at Mission Valley Super Oval in Polson, Mont., on July 16.

Daniel Dye Racing announced the news on June 30 and confirmed that Martin will join forces with the full-time ARCA Menards Series driver for the 31st annual Montana 200.

He will attempt to guide Dye to a win while the Florida native drives a car owned by defending ARCA Menards Series West Champion crew chief Travis Sharpe.

“It’s pretty special to have the chance to learn from and work with one of the greatest drivers of all time in NASCAR Hall of Famer Mark Martin,” Dye said in a statement. “I know Travis Sharpe will bring us a fast car, and Mark will keep us dialed in. Mission Valley Super Oval is a track I had not seen until now but it looks like a really fun place to race, and I can’t wait to get there.”

The Montana 200 Weekend Has 2 Days of Action

GettyMark Martin speaks during the 2017 Hall of Fame ceremony.

The Montana 200, which pays $10,000, will feature two days of on-track action as drivers beat and bang their way around the 3/8-mile short track. The teams will practice on Thursday, July 14. The qualifying heats and support races will take place on Friday, July 15, and then the Montana 200 will cap off the weekend on Saturday, July 16.

Fans living in Montana or wanting to make the trip to witness racing under the mountains can purchase tickets on the Mission Valley Super Oval site. Racing America will also broadcast the race as part of its continued coverage of grassroots series.

The full entry list for the Montana 200 is not yet available, but track officials have stated that there will be more than 30 competitors taking on the prestigious event. They also stated that the race weekend will mark the biggest event since the track changed ownership four years ago.

Dye & Sharpe Previously Joined Forces at a Road Course

This trip to Montana will continue a working relationship between Dye and Sharpe, albeit at a different style of track. The two previously joined forces for an ARCA Menards Series West race at Portland International Raceway.

Dye, who is third overall in the ARCA Menards Series championship standings, took on the Oregon road course in what was only his second West Series start of the year while Sharpe served as his crew chief. The driver of the No. 43 won the pole for the rain-shortened race before ultimately bringing the entry home in fourth.

“I had no plans to do any ARCA races this year, but when Bill McAnnally called and asked me to work with Daniel at Portland, it was an easy yes,” Sharpe said in the press release. “I knew I had to work with Daniel again after how well we ran at Portland, so the fact that the stars lined up for us to do the biggest race of the year at my home track was just awesome. And we’re all excited to have Mark Martin work with us for the Montana 200.”

Celtics Blake Griffin Gets Candid on Potential Role

Getty Blake Griffin, Boston Celtics

Blake Griffin is the latest veteran to join the Boston Celtics roster, and will likely fill the role left by Danilo Gallinari, who is out with an ACL injury.

Speaking to the media on October 3, shortly after the team made his signing official, Griffin opened up on what led him to join the Celtics and what type of role he’s expecting to play with the team throughout the season.

"Just to help this team win a championship."

“I can provide some stability off the bench. They obviously have centers in Robert Williams and Al Horford that have played big minutes…whatever they need, if Al needs a break, or if Rob needs a break, just some stability. I didn’t come here demanding a certain type of role – it was just to fill the gaps, and to help this team win a championship,” Griffin told reporters.

Griffin, 33, spent last season with the Brooklyn Nets and participated in 56 regular-season games, providing them with 6.4 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game while shooting 42.5% from the field. By joining a rotation that boasts Horford and Williams, the Celtics now have three of the better passing big men in the league and should have no problems initiating offense through their centers moving forward.

Griffin Praises Celtics Atmosphere

The Celtics are slowly becoming known for their professional and business-like approach to the game, from how they undertake training sessions, to their off-court conduct – everything seems to be in place.

According to Griffin, his biggest shock since joining the team is how professional and welcoming the locker room is, something the veteran says is a rarity around the NBA.

“The amount of maturity and welcoming-ness. It’s a different atmosphere that I’m sort of used to, in a good way. Everybody, one through 15, in practice was focused, very encouraging, and helpful. You don’t take that for granted because it’s not always the case everywhere you go,” Griffin said.

Hopefully, that team camaraderie can help Boston navigate the ups and downs of an NBA season, and will make Joe Mazzulla’s life easier when it comes to motivating his roster when the games start coming thick and fast.

Mfiondu Kabengele Doing Everything He Can To Impress

Griffin’s addition to the roster is certainly beneficial to the Celtics, but it does present another roadblock to 25-year-old center Mfiondu Kabengele, who will be looking to earn some playing time while with the team on a two-way contract.

As such, Kabengele has committed himself to putting in the work and improving his game – in the hopes of impressing the coaching staff and breaking into the rotation throughout the year.

Following an October 3 practice session, Kabengele was filmed working with Jaylen Brown on his pick-and-roll game, most notably his positioning and angles when rolling after setting a screen – something which some executives dubbed ‘pick-and-roll school’.

It will be interesting to see how much playing time Kabengele gets during the regular season, especially when Williams returns to the rotation, but one thing’s for sure: the 25-year-old center is going to have earned every minute he spends on the court.
