Next Stop is Martinsville Speedway “The Paperclip”

This weekend race fans should expect to get their Bristol fix at Martinsville AKA “The Paperclip”. If you remember the last two races at Martinsville they were everything but boring. I don’t think there was one straight panel left on any of the cars at the end of the day.

Then there was the Matt Kenseth vs Brian Vickers battle. The two of these guys traded paint and took nips at each other all day long, until at one point Brian Vickers spun-out trying to get the rear bumper of Kenseth for one last swipe. Clint Boyer seemed highly amused by the whole ordeal by chuckling on the radio and making a few funny comments.

If your looking for a fantasy league pick for the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 on April Fools Day, Jeff Gordon currently has the most wins out of all the current drivers in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with 7  under his belt.

However, my eye is on the 88 this weekend. Earnhardt has had a great start to the season with top five runs, and he’s fast at Martinsville. He almost won last season and finished in second place to Kevin Harvick who passed Earnhardt late in the race and never looked back.

The Boys Head To Homestead With One Ta Go!

Kasey Kahne drove the Red Bull machine to a victory last weekend at Phoenix International Raceway; Kyle Busch is at bay and on probation for his truck racing incident, and if you’re not on Brian Vickers bad side, and your name is Tony Stewart or Carl Edwards, you might just win the Nascar Sprint Cup Chase this weekend at Homestead.

Just three points… yes that’s right THREE!, separate first and second place Chase contenders Carl Edwards and Tony Stewart.

Last weekend at Phoenix, both contenders traded positions back-and-forth, like two heavy weight titans battling for every inch of real estate to get that extra point.

Edwards has been great all season, and Stewart has really started to pour it on at the end of the year, to make it not so easy for Edwards. Both guys went back and forth all race long last week, and still three points are all that remain for Stewart to over take Edwards.

This has to be the closest battles in Sprint Cup history. The race this weekend should be a great one to watch.
