If you watched last Sundays Nascar race at Martinsville, you were at the edge of your seat for the entire race. The race at Martinsville is how the Bristol used to be before they decided to change the track.
There was a ton of action during the entire race and the bump and run was alive and well. Martin Truex Jr. had a scary moment when his throttle hung going down the backstretch as he crashed into Kasey Kahne so hard, Truex’s car burst into a ball of fire before the two of them slammed into the wall.Truex immediately ran from his car to see if Kasey was ok.The two of them luckly ended up walking away from that crash.
Then with 18 to go, Dale Earnhardt Jr. bumped Kyle Bush up the hill and made the pass for the lead. He lead all the way until there was four to go when a hard charging Kevin Harvick made that pass for the lead going into the turn as Earnhardt’s car got loose in the corner. Harvick crossed the finish line first taking home the victory and a Martinsville grandfather clock!
During a post race interview Dale Jr. said “I bumped Kyle and got him loose for the lead, I didn’t want to do the same thing to Harvick and be the bad guy for the day.“
