Safety First: Whether you are brand new to firearms or you’ve been around them your entire life, it is always good to brush up on the 4 Cardinal Rules of Gun Safety, and to teach them to others:
- Treat all guns as if they are loaded.
- Never let the muzzle point at anything you are not willing to destroy.
- Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target and you have made the decision to fire.
- Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

Martinsville (Va.) Speedway | Dead On Tools 250 Race Recap: In his most recent NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, Graf and the SSGLRwJL team showcased the No. 07 Bucked Up Pump N’ Grind Energy Drink Ford Mustang in the penultimate Xfinity Series race of the season.
After qualifying a career-best 12th last Friday afternoon, Graf maintained a solid pace inside the top 20 despite battling a loose race car at the onset of Stage 1. Unfortunately, late in the stage, Graf would be dumped by another competitor who said he lost all brakes in his race car.
The contact sent Graf up the race track and into the Turn 1 wall hard. The SS GreenLight Racing with Jeff Lefcourt team was able to piece back together the mangled race car where Graf was able to soldier on to a frustrating 27th-place finish.

Joe Graf Jr. Pre-Race Quote:
On Phoenix Raceway: “I can’t believe the end of the season is here. It seems like we were just taking the green flag on the year at Daytona but on Saturday afternoon, we’ll be taking the checkered flag on the 2022 Xfinity Series season.
“I cannot thank my SS GreenLight with Jeff Lefcourt team enough for all of their hard work, effort and support throughout the year. I feel like we have improved our team considerably from last year and that is because of all the hard work involved by all.
“Overall, I like Phoenix. I’ve had some good qualifying runs there but haven’t been able to seal the deal with a finish I’d be content with. I’m thankful and appreciative to have ArmsList.com on the car this weekend and I hope we can deliver them a solid result in their Xfinity Series partnership debut.”
