Ferrucci, who was originally planned to compete at the short track, had a schedule conflict for this event.
Gdovic last drove for Sam Hunt in the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, where he finished a career-best eighth place.
“I’m looking forward to being back at Martinsville Speedway,” Gdovic said in a team release. “I haven’t raced there in nearly 12 years, and it’s an incredible track to race at. High braking, lots of action and close contact. Hopefully it’s a little less pucker-factor than Daytona was, but we have the on-board camera for all of the action.”

Ferrucci will rejoin the team at Pocono Raceway on June 27.
The Xfinity Series will take on the Cook Out 250 on Friday, April 9.
