NASCAR At Martinsville Update


Welcome NASCAR race fans to my NASCAR blog. Practice for the Sprint Cup and Camping World Truck drivers was scheduled for Friday at Martinsville Speedway. However, Mother Nature had other plans. Sprint Cup practice for the Tums Fast Relief 500 was called off so the Camping World Truck drivers could take to the track after they finally dried the track. 33 Ron Hornaday and 18 Denny Hamlin were fastest and will qualify last on Saturday. 38 Trucks are entered in this 36 Truck field. Qualifying will be on Saturday morning.

While we were waiting to see the rain stop and the driers come out to dry the track, SPEED TV treated us race fans to the 10 Closest calls in NASCAR. It was a list of the most spectacular crashes in history. Or at least the media pick of the greatest crashes. I was hoping for close racing instead of spectacular crashing. They did mention Jeremy Mayfield moving the Intimidator Dale Earnhardt over to win at Pocono. Dale generally crashed out the competition to win races. Jeremy didn’t crash Dale out, but moved him aside. I thought that was a great finish, myself.

Coors Light Pole Qualifying for the Tums Fast Relief 500 will be on Saturday afternoon. The Sprint Cup drivers will have an early morning practice session so that qualifying line up can be determined.
