Jeff Green would have been in the No. 21 Ford owned by the Wood Brothers this weekend, but when qualifying was rained out the team didn’t make the show.
“As we’ve done with Bill (Elliott) ever since we started this arrangement, I call him every week before finalizing our entry blank and ask him if he still wants to race for the coming week,” team owner Eddie Wood said.
“When I spoke to Bill on Monday, he showed an interest in swapping out Bristol for Martinsville, so that’s what we did."
Green was ninth fastest overall in practice Friday before rain arrived just before 1 p.m.
Never miss a local story.
“When I saw the weather forecast I figured this was going to happen,” Green said.
“I guess the most appropriate thing to say right now is that when it rains, it pours. This sort of typifies the way our season has gone so far.”
