The Pit Stop

Gateway And Martinsville Thoughts

The Sunday race was just what you all wanted, right???

You wanted wrecking, you got wrecking.  The Jeff Gordon dump,  the Regan Smith dump, plus all the other cars that spun out.

You wanted a battle for the championship lead, well you got that and then some.  Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, and Jimmie Johnson were stuck like glue for most of the race.  It made for a very interesting race.

You want an ultra close race for the lead in points, well you got that.  Jimmie leads the chase now by 6 points over Denny and 62 points over Kevin.  That should help bring in the rating for Talladega.

Mark Martin had a solid final 100 laps.  Dale Earnhardt Jr. lead a whole bunch of laps which was great. 


It sucks not to have Gateway in the Nationwide series.  The last two races have had lots of action, controversy, and major wrecks.  What more do you want???

Danica had another solid outing after having a poor qualifying effort.
