Another veteran bites the dust with Sterling Marlin likely to be replaced by another “Younger” gun
Great to see the soldiers in Iraq giving the command to start engines…they also did a better job than the pampered celebrity that usually gets the assigment
Old time tracks always have one thing that the new tracks can’t replace…traditions! Whether it is a grandfather clock as a trophy or lining the cars up on the Frontstretch, Martinsville is full of tradition!
F for Gibb’s Racing
A broken wheel and a bum cylinder are the latest additions to the list of horrors the Gibbs’ teams have dealt with this year. If it weren’t for bad luck they would have no luck at all.
D for Hermie Sadler’s Luck
Isn’t it bad enough to have a team so under funded racing against the big boys…do they really have to have teams spin in front of them too? I am starting to find myself rooting for this team since they work so hard just to make the show!
C for Petty Racing
Another passing grade for both Petty teams with finishes of 18th and 22nd. Sure it is not that great, but it is a huge improvement for two awful teams last season!
B for Kasey Kahne
Last year the short tracks gave Kahne fits, this season he has showed he is learning from his mistakes. When this kid finally learns how to put it all together for a win they might win seven or eight in a row!
A for Jeff Gordon
Rallying from three laps down after a loose tire was an amazing feat. If he had driven a little cleaner he might have grabbed an “A+”. Hey Jeff a little advice, watch out for the 97 at Richmond!

Watch out for the Kahne Train
Good luck Kasey
