-- Martinsville -- oft referred to as the hot-dog-eating contest with a race thrown into the middle.
-- Kurt Busch was able to pass and hold off Jimmie Johnson for the win, which is good, because one more grandfather clock for Jimmie and we’d have to call “Hoarders.”
-- Jimmie Johnson is now winless through six whole races. But don’t expect him to be winless for the entire regular season. He would have to not win 26 straight. Only the Philadelphia 76ers are capable of such a feat.
-- For all who may have called for lights to be installed at Martinsville Speedway, be warned that merely adding lights to a storied venue does not necessarily improve the product. Just ask the Chicago Cubs.
