Hey folks! Here's my take on the Martinsville weekend. The Xfinity was off, but Trucks and Cup raced.
Saturday was the Truck race. Matt Crafton won with 63 laps led, followed by rookie John Hunter Nemechek with 32 laps led, rookie Cameron Haley, pole-sitter Cole Custer with 96 laps led and Tyler Reddick. Rounding out the top-10 were Timothy Peters, rookie Brandon Jones, Caleb Holman, Johnny Sauter and rookie Erik Jones. Gray Gaulding led 9 laps and was 21st. JJ Haley was 32nd due to an accident on lap 119.
Sunday was the Cup race. Jeff Gordon won with 35 laps led, followed by Jamie McMurray, Denny Hamlin with 3 laps led, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Kyle Busch. Rounding out the top-10 were Martin Truex, Jr. with 27 laps led, Ryan Newman, Kevin Harvick with 38 laps led, Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart. AJ Allmendinger led 19 laps and finished 11th. Austin Dillon was 18th with 6 laps led. Brad Keselowski led 143 laps, but an incident that sent him off the track for a time relegated him to 32nd. Kurt Busch was 34th due to an issue after he led 22 laps. Pole-sitter Joey Logano led 207 laps, but was 37th due to a crash with Matt Kenseth. Matt Kenseth was 38th due to being parked on lap 443 after wrecking Logano. Danica Patrick was 40th due to an incident on lap 391. Clint Bowyer was 43rd due to an accident on lap 185.
My birthday was the day after the Cup race and my blog-day was on Wednesday the same week. I got behind in my blog in late May and am now trying to catch up. Come back next time for my Texas recap.
