With just four races left in this year, Jimmie Johnson has emerged as the Chase points leader. That has got to be sending shivers up the spine of his closest competitor, and the points leader for the first six Chase races, Matt Kenseth.
This week is the ultimate contrast in racing. Last weekend NASCAR was racing at the largest track on the circuit, this week they are racing on the shortest track on the circuit.
Our Martinsville Picks
This week we have another unique situation. For the last two weeks we had seven drivers that had two players each rooting for them. This week we have three drivers with two players each rooting them on. “Jim, aka Chiefy” and “Bernie The Bay Area Bandit” will be seen hanging around their local Furniture Row stores, all the while cheering on ol Kurt Busch.
Similarly, “Dan The Numbers Cruncher” and “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff” will be strolling through their local Lowe’s Home Improvement stores looking for bargains and hoping that “Mr.Five-Time”, Jimmie Johnson, will continue in his attempt to capture his sixth Sprint Cup championship!
Lastly, “Jeremy The Coach” and Carole are hoping that Clint Bowyer can keep his hot rod going forward all race, and bring home the hardware!
For the remaining eleven players not mentioned, they are “in bidnez” for themselves!
Just remember that this is the only “bullring” in the Chase, and we know what that means.. After the checkered flag flies, there will be bruised egos, lost tempers, and crumpled sheet metal. All part of the days work at Martinsville!
Good luck to all!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN'”
