This week NASCAR, once again, makes a cross country trek from its previous two mile long, high speed, super wide venue in Fontana. CA, to the tiny, narrow paperclip of a race track called Martinsville Speedway.
Our Martinsville Choices
This week the most popular driver choice among the players is Jeff Gordon, who is tied for second with his teammate, Jimmie Johnson, on the all time win list at Martinsville. There are three players, Carole, “Jeremy The Coach”, and “Leon Your Most Humble Sheriff” that are hoping that ol “Mr. Four-Time” can be successful on his drive to end hunger, and also put them into the winners circle at The STP 500.
There are three drivers that have two supporters on their side this weekend. Edie and “Jason The Latent Tie Dye Hippie” are hoping that Denny Hamlin has recuperated from his incapacitation and can put both of them into the winner’s circle at Martinsville.
Likewise, both Carlton and Marc are hoping that Joey Logano can put his #22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford in a position to lead all the pack to the checkered flag Sunday.
Finally, Dawn and “David The Mudslinging Throttle Jockey” will be hanging out at their local Lowe’s and rooting on ol “Six Pack”, Jimmie Johnson Sunday.
That leaves the other seven players to be doing what they do best, and that is, to be “in bidnez” for themselves Sunday.
Good luck to everyone this week.
Need I remind any of you that Martinsville is NASCAR’s oldest race track, opening in 1947. And because it is a short track, Sunday the tempers will fly, the sheet metal will crumple, and somebody will be reminded to “keep your hands to yourself”!
TIL NEXT TIME, PULL YOUR GLOVES UP, FLIP YOUR VISOR DOWN, AND LET’S GO RACIN’!
