They'll be taking the helicopter, not driving.
Wrong. Not everyone flies. The crew drives to events that close. Hell even most of the drivers drive up.
My borther, nephew and my nephew's 5 year old stopped in Charlotte on their way to Martinsville.
Mr H sure knows how to make a kid's day.
Took them back in the shop also. That kid is special. Grinning ear to ear.
Mr. H has a fan for life.
And so does Chase Elliott.
Thanks for sharing, what a great day they had.
They all have very good taste, @Pat.
Wow, oh how I wish I could go down there.
A friend of mine is in M'ville and went to this. He posted this on his FB page:
"Great turnout at the Wood Brothers Museum BILL ELLIOT, RYAN BLANEY, KEN SQUIER, RICHARD CHILDRESS, KYLE PETTY, DARRYL AND MICHAEL WALTRIP, MIKE HELTON, AND OTHER NOTABLES. GREAT event for a legend and a Great Family."
I may bust my Kurt shirt out on sunday.
Less isn't more unless its NASCAR having a 34 or 35 race schedule. Only races that need to be shortened are a few 500 mile races (Texas, Talladega) to 400.
Heck, I'm guessing that I'm in the minority on this but I don't see a single reason to shorten any races, or the season. Keep in mind, this is coming from a race fan that was PO'd when they went from 500 to 400 miles @ Dover. Take it for what it's worth..... Just another opinion.
Leaving for yet another out & back trip across PA this weekend. I'll be taking this race in through the eyes of MRN.
I really like this track. There are a lot of games played with these restarts and definitely on pit road trying to exit to get that coveted starting lane. Many don't care for it but it's been part of racing @ Martinsville for a long, long time. There is action all over this track that never gets conveyed through television. Television will never do NASCAR justice. I've lost count how many races that my wife & I have been to this track over the years. It never fails, when I'd get home after the weekend and throw in the VCR tape or watch it on the DVR, outside of the winner, I felt like I was watching a completely different race. If you don't have this track on your bucket list, sharpen your pencil or fire up your calendar app and add it. You won't be sorry. This track and Darlington are about the only two that can give you some sort of idea what NASCAR's always been about..... good hard racing.
Can't decide which Stenhouse shirt to wear, or I could fall back to the 22
Just for you Lisa.
My friend is in the stands:
Good lord JJ in 30th
Go with the 18 gear
A very unfortunate mistake by the NASCAR social team...since deleted, of course.
Blaney imitating his father out here
Wonder if he itched it?
lot of blue up at the top. Pole for Logano
Can't wait to see HMS sink tomorrow...
Provisional until tech tomorrow.

The lineup from qualifying today is provisional until tech tomorrow morning.
If that's what it takes for Kurt to have some luck around this joint, do it!
Martinsville and Kurt Busch have a love/hate relationship.
Hopefully not. Eyeballing the short tracks quite a bit, because one guy in particular over at HMS knows how to get around them faster than anyone else. Mr. Popular is a dark horse, too.
I cringe everytime I hear them call it that. I've NEVER known Martinsville as the "paperclip". Clay Campbell should sue anyone who uses it.
Wall saves Blaney at Martinsville
“Half Mile of Mayhem” is great but also a mouthful.
It’s been described as “the paperclip” for over two decades and rolls off the tongue easier. Even Martinsville’s marketing uses that description.
Its shape is described as a paperclip but nobody I know calls it the paperclip.
It kinda looks like a Corndog...
