What did they great Scott guy from we don't know we're trying to find information the guy? So we may have another infect I'm pretty sure we'll do another drawing this coming Friday night flow. You're gonna have somebody from the look let me tell you something man, there's gonna be a couple of ESP's in that luxury suite or I'll know the reason why. What does that him? So don't just to say in this one of the things that when no one knows the reason why so that'll happen on Friday night UBS peas out there be watching and listening to the chat the Friday night.

And if you're listening, great, Scott, if you just didn't for whatever reason, we didn't get to you couldn't find you. Or we got something wrong. I'll bet you. I got money that says the the username was entered. I think probably the wrong way or something that could be. Yeah. So anyway, as the as the saying goes, that's where it's at coming up tonight. Stephen Basell is gonna join us. There was a story that he was he was referencing. You know, this guy George Conway that he's the husband of Kellyanne Conway. Yeah. This cat is married to Kellyanne Conway who's a main spokesperson for Donald Trump. Yeah. She's like the V main spokesperson. Yeah. These he's he's begging on Trump and everything this guy, George Conway. I guess there's a liberal or something or a democrat. Maybe not now George Conway's a Republican, but he's definitely a non Trumper whenever they call those. They call them never Trumpers. This guy seems like he's more than a never-trumper. I mean, he's like a diametrically opposed to Trump. And so Steve Bozell is going to be calling because Bozell along with you general. Well, I know that bozos a Trump supporter I voted for Trump, and I would say the off and on I support him. All right. So you're gonna come on and weigh in on that because he's. He finds that troubling given the fact that he his wife purchased some kind of a bookcase at a consignment store. He doesn't like it. But he's got no say in it, something of what he's taking it personally is that it. Yeah. That's he he's I don't know if he's taking it personally. But he's he's wondering why he doesn't get to have the same leeway with his wife that George Conway gets. I don't know that does not guys like publicly talk about Trump and everything and Kellyanne Conway is. Yes. She she's in the office and stuff snuggle enough being snuggling up, Jamie. She's she's a big supporter Trump. So what's it like at their house? I'm should listen. You guys what I love about working with these these monkeys specifically, ladies and gentlemen, the monkey stuff, but I like working with these guys is that they're so clueless. When it comes to the facts of life, a man and a woman don't have to agree politically for them to have a perfectly happy in wonderful marriage. I give you Mary Maitland. And who's the guy the skinny the bald headed guy that looked like skeletal James Carville that guy they kids bald headed guy that look like skeletons or whatever the guys who was the wife. Mary Matlin you guys. I don't know. I never heard of her. Yeah. I think it's very Maitland Matlin or something. Now, that's interesting. Everyone seems to have forgotten her name but not his anyway. So they're on opposite sides of the track politically, and they've got one of those great marriages, right? Yes. It's one of those Washington DC power. Marriages. You know, I would say that Franken I are similar. Why is it? It's like a it's like a Turkish bath in this dumped though, it's really hot. But open a doorway brace. You don't want to I understand. All right. But it is one of those Washington DC power marriages. If you wanna call it that power marriage. That's interesting. Well, Steve bozo. Joins us from corona California. Think is on his way home either home from work or on his way back from the store and a mission. Some kind of Steve how are you, sir? Thanks for joining us. Steve, I'm we're talking about you. And and you're you know, you brought up George Conway, right? Turn it drive. I listen to radio just briefly is how it's and listening to a lot of the talk programming. What did they say? In the talk radio talk a little bit about this point. And how George Conway seems to be able to say whatever he wants to say the rest of us. We don't get to say what we want to say. Yeah. It's pretty interesting. You know, like you were saying you support President Trump. I do too seems like ever since I had supported President Trump. I've my rights as a man gets gets smaller and smaller shriveled up. You know, shrivel up. You know what I'm saying? Like, I we. It seems to you at your house. What do you mean? My I mean, George Conway towards Conway seems to have more rights. I mean, he checks. Oh, but he doesn't support President Trump. I support President Trump, and you what about you general? You're right shriveling. I'm not sure Lynn, but my rights are not shriveling up able to say what I want when I what. All right. Well, I'm I don't know how Pinon aided is your house. But at my house, just pretty opinionated. Do you? And your wife agree though, politically, right? Okay. Yes. We'll see. That's what Steve is faced with much political at my house is it's I just wanna have an opinion. And when I expressed by opinion on something that my wife's origin decided on chill. Do this. You'll say, yeah, that's great. And you gotta waves her hand almost like she's saying can someone get some air freshener here. I mean, I know it isn't that? He's taking stuff we seriously like that. We may not always taking stuff wave seriously do tend to take things to a very graphic extreme it's like your wife's waving as if you need air freshener. Well, you ought to be there at my house, then when she doesn't because I'll say like, I'll give an example. What's this bookcase? She bought this on consignment. Is that consignment store over here in corona? But let's consignment. It's another words, it's it's a piece of furniture that was given to the store to be sold by the store and the store gets to keep a piece of the price and the person who gave the furniture, they get to keep a piece of it. In other words, like a commission sale. Never mind, dick. But okay, go ahead. Steve until it was a it was a consignment. I know that's what it was that. What it is. Yes. Okay. How do you know? What's consignment sale? That's what my wife told me that put April doing, and I go K, you know. So I I get home. She calls me up. She says I got a new book ace on consignment from historic over here in corona. I just play you kinda say the name is during go ahead. It's a place called Edwards and son. Okay. And they had some consignment items that were from Mexico, beautiful pieces of furniture from Mexico. So she told me I just got. She said, I just got just got it in now picked it up. It's been delivered and said, okay, good. So I knocked off early because I wanted to kind of get into truck and prepare myself, as I went home 'cause I knew I I would have an opinion that I wanted to express the opinion. Wait, wait, wait. What do you mean? Duct off early. This sounds like it was a big event. Well, no wouldn't the big event. But I've been reading about George Conway getting to say. He wants to say. Hold on, bud. You worried about George Conway getting to say what he wanted to say. And that made you want to go home and talk about this piece of furniture. No, no, I was going to I wanted to see the piece of furniture. My wife told me he'd bought it on his consignment deal. And I was on my way home. But I'd just been reading about George Conway saying anything he wanted to say. So I was you know, thinking about that as I was driving home. So you were sort of preparing yourself not to like the furniture white say that because obviously you wanted to have a strong opinion. Well, it could have been an opinion in support. Yeah. I mean, but again getting back to this guy who's married to this to the support of our to the to the president's chiefs jock jock the president's chief spokesperson. Yes. The president spokesperson. Now, I forgot what I was gonna say. You're you're on your way, home to express your opinion. Yeah. That's correct. I'd so that your wife flying this furniture was your way of expressing a strongly held opinion. Yeah. I mean, I I've always wanted to. You know, this is really not about George Conway. This is about you in your own home. Not being able to express an opinion. Steve. No, no. It isn't. I mean, it, isn't it isn't. But I get away it is. But in a way that it isn't. Okay. So what's is it or is it yet? But is it or isn't it a way of expressing an opinion in your house? Yeah. I mean, what's George Clinton got to do with it? Oh, oh, yeah. Because he came out and said that his wife's boss, basically is an idiot and they're still married. He does it all the time, and you're still happily married. Okay. So why don't you try it? I'm that's why I did today. So I got home and my wife has his bookcase. I'd made up my mind that I would say that it looked like, you know, they'd pull it from the bottom of the ocean or something like that. I came up with a real good thing to say about it. Would you do that? Because I wanted to have an opinion that was contrary to APRIL's. So that'd be endless president. So that we can have we could be begin began a tradition of having competing opinions on things and not have it be bad. Is this the very was this the first thing you guys have ever disagreed on pretty much. Yeah. I mean, we pretty much agree on everything that's much. We agree on it. But April pretty much calls his shots when it comes to raising the kids and she pretty much calls his shots when it comes to school. They went to and the food to eat and the clothes they wear. Right. So she calls the shots, but comes with the kids. I mean. Yeah. So you were looking for an area where you can have your own opinion. I mean, I'm not looking, but it would help there's something that she that. I could just come out and say it so all right? So here comes this consignment bookcase. Right. And I sent to her. She said, what do you think I said, it looks like they pulled it from the bottom of the ocean? As it looks like it was laying at the bottom of the ocean. And she goes, what do you mean by that? I said look at it and say, it looks like it it just came right out of the out of the bottom of the ocean. Looks like there'd been stuff living on it live, maybe barnacles attached to it. I I don't know. I've never seen anything to come up from bottom of the ocean. But if anybody if anybody came up from the bottom of the ocean, he'd looked like that. I mean, I mean, they they look like that. I mean, I said he'd and she said the same thing you said he said, I mean, it would look like that. How does your wife take this very strong held you sound like you're made on a jello? That opinion that mean, it means you're like will. I hope you're holding in your stuttering. Steve you don't sound very definite. I'm very, and I told her it looks like it comes by the ocean, and I stood there. And I put my hands on my hips, and I pointed at it, and I pointed at her, and I said that thing looks like it comes from way down like at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico after they had to oil spill or down downtown, man. Okay. And she goes she she waves her hand like it was like there was a bad cloud of stink and goes. Yeah. Thanks and continues looking at it measuring it through where she's gonna put it. So in other words, she blew off your opinion any but pretty much. Yeah. So you know, you guys really cracked. Yep. Steve you and a couple of the other guest to feel brings on your on the verge of tears because your wife just kind of waved their hand, you'd opinion, obviously was not very strongly held. That's why she just missed it. It was his strongly held as I can hold it. Yeah. But you didn't really believe. It man. That's why she wasn't did. She think you're kidding. How could you think? I was kidding. I'm looked serious. I I told her I said, I think it looks like it comes from the. On the bottom of the ocean. Yes, actually said what do you mean said, it looks like it was it was thrown overboard, and it drifted way down and way down way down way down and went down further, then any skin diver. Scoop scoop scuba diver has ever been and you'd have to go down and be a deep sea diver with like a tank. Okay. And it was just and it was sitting down there and Philly swam along and looked at it and said, wow, you know, what air of the history of civilizations. This come from to find out if something comes from Mexico. I don't know. Why we're where are we talking about? This. The Kellyanne Conway, George Conway. So. Yeah. Well, I mean, th there's doesn't seem to be any connection here. Steve. I mean, you, you know, you're talking about nobody. I what are you talking about? Well, you were inspired by George Conway. Yes, that he gets to say what he wants to say, George Conway is an attorney in Washington with a name value name recognition. His wife is a pretty prominent person people are going to pay attention. But more to the point he has these strongly held opinions that happen to be in the contravene or our country to his wife's. And that's what makes it interesting. But my opinions our country to my wife's nobody's paying money to hear you talk about how you think some bookcase. She bought on consignment looks like it came from the bottom of the ocean. What does that mean? Anyway, I'm not sure, you know, sound for the bubble. He'll listen some of it looks pitching. What does stuff in the bottom of the ocean? Like what for instance, if they bring up a Greek God or something like that? Butts talk buds talking about like statues, statuary, end the MTA quickies. Steve, you know, I'm not familiar with that, you don't know it until the antiquities, for instance, antiquity pot borger. It's gotta be you beater, just pin. All right. Well, you guys gotta listen. Okay. Wow. I heard that through the phone antiquities. These are very ancient at very valuable artifacts. Some that are reflective of civilization. You know what I'm talking about? Don't you homeboy? Yes. Sure. I know what you're talking about. I'm not talking to you talking about. Yeah. I understand. Thank you. But I'm still say that to be able to say that and not have just get, you know, I I'm absolutely sure that George Conway will come home at night and says to his wife. Yeah. Hey, do you see where they brought up about me and the Washington Post? I'm sure she doesn't waiver hand like she's waving off. Just a pungent spin. Of a pungent stink. You know? What's so funny? What's so funny? I mean, Steve this is a guy this guy Conway's of attorney what what what kind of relationship, you think they have. I think they've got one of those relationships where you know, they they avoid talking about certain topics. Now, that's the that's what I think why. Yeah, I've heard it said that there are I think we've mentioned this this show before I I know there's a state of the art relationships. That's right and one of them, this is state of the art folks, this is what marriage counsellors marriage therapist will tell you one of the state of the art six six 'full kinds of marriages is the one where the people just avoid certain topics. So they just don't talk about it. I bet you anything. That's it that that could be end. Then there are the other two state of art marriages, which is they fight like cats and dogs or they. They agree to disagree. Well, yeah. No, they they fight like cats and dogs or they just they just bring it up, and they disagree something like that. It sounds like any kind of marriage. Right. So maybe what they're saying is all marriages can succeed if they're done the right way takes two to Tango. Steve St. L is our guest here on the world famous. Fill injury shows. We talk about this this bookcase that his wife brought home on consignment. Steve told her it looked like she pulled it from the bottom of the ocean. And she just waved him off like it was a pungent cloud of gas in front of her nose. And you're saying how come George Conway. Yeah. I mean, I just think that it's it's it's invaluable lesson. Well, I think the lessons in the Conway marriage Nutting, you and your wife, April waving away, a pungent cloud of stench, or whatever it was that you represented to her at that moment. I don't think I Representative pungent cloud of stanch. I mean. Wow. What are you saying seeing anything that Senate? What do you think you represent your wife? I represent a man, I'm a full grown, man. Okay. Yes. All right. And I come in. And she says. What do you think about it? Both L your wife calls you Bozon. Sometimes. Yeah.

Well, I'm I'm relaxing here. At the end of the day. I'm splashing around a little bit. I've got it makes you on Charlie's to you. But I have a couple of items here. I've got a a a World War Two destroyer. I've got a both and I have a ping pong ball. And I bet the around the tub, and I'll give an example here, I'm gonna turn the water on and. Yeah. And I wish them into the water. I pushed him into the web of Paul. Yeah. Into the waterfall. I mean, the whole push him into the waterfall of the weather coming down, and it allows me to heal a relief. Okay. I wouldn't call it a violent thing. But allows me to feel a release. I've you so I'm gonna push them like the destroy us. Right into waterfall. Does he those are the the sailors getting destroyed by it? That sounds is that some sort of therapy hold on. Put some hot what day here hitter. But I pushed the seal boat and never again. So what was that? Is it some sort of therapy that you do? I know I wouldn't say Skippy. Well, it so it's like a little kid. Okay. If you wanna call it that I mean, I'm an adult man who needs to express some angst over the. Quite frankly that the lousy day I just had and a lot of the patients that I had that were very rude to me. So I imagine that my patients, and I don't mean this literally fill, but it's your way of expressing some aggression, though. Yes, it is. And so my patience I see them as being on these ships. And I'll say, okay, there's MRs Kafka and here is husband, Jim and put them on this shift push them right in a push, right? I see him. He gets just he just ripped in half. By the the waterfall g. You know, something I find that very disturbing again. I find very disturbing. I can't get you. We could turn the water. Thank you. Dr. I care. I said, I find it very disturbing. Here's another one. Are you listening to what people are saying? Get the ping pong, Paul. Can he, but here's Dr Turner pushed the ping pong ball sector Turner right here into is a fake there. Talk to Toyota. Hey, Elmer Fudd you say something. Yeah. We'll just wondered if you can hear us. Oh, I can hear you now. Yes. Okay. That's great. So thank you very much for demonstrating that. Okay. Just started watches here goes. Oh, yeah. See? And and what does that do? Exactly. Well, general I know that you combat veterans. So you probably think that went I have a a made up guy on the boat. Then it gets destroyed under my ball fall. You don't think it's means anything? But for me it does it means quite a bit. It means that that person guy. That's the guy that gave you a bunch of crap. And now he's been you know, he's been blasted off the boat by the waterfall. Yeah. So if he has good I do have Stephen bozo on the line. Okay. It was gonna fascinating and Stevens talking about here with us tonight. Dr Dr Sadler. I is that his wife. You know, what I can't? I'll basically George Conway is is married to Gillian Conway in Washington DC, and he gets to say anything that he wants to say about his wife. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Let him wait a minute. Wait a minute. I just need to do that one. How turn the water up? Okay. Go ahead. You. Yeah, I'm good.

Saint Paul's your old stomping grounds now you are out on the street right now and your but to remove your shirt, tell me about this Bill. There has been as you bet you'd cub and Terry the local dues it Los Angeles about a California is not being able to deal with the midwest weather that big a deal with thirty below. Whether it is today say Paul Minnesota, and I it is just absurd while I do Cup from California, you do to you've mentioned you lived in Minnesota, I live here over the years. I used to teach at university of Minnesota back in the nineteen eighties. So I don't from where I bugged coming from where where did you live in those days right over there? The park. What's the name of that park there near the the Walker said that caused the culture center, okay and lived there while I was teach. Ching. It I moved around a little bit without the wise Etta for wild. But you know, I've certainly had by fair share winters that as you mentioned. What winter were you hear Phil? I was in Minnesota Minneapolis ninety three ninety four that was one of the worst winters. They've had it Betty a year. And so when I heard that they do today, California was it if you're a California, you can't put up with that kind of weather, but that that arc Bago. What are you talking about? They're like, well, you know, if you're a coastal California, and you just can't you can't hack that stuff. You know, there's a difference between being able to hack something I think. I think I'm going to be doing the segment, right, right? But I need to let all of my guests. No, including you run that when Phil starts talking about something don't interrupt him. If you don't mind. All right. Ron you? You get you get the lay the land land. So as I was saying, yeah, you know, I hear this. And there's a big difference between wanting to live in that stuff and being able to live in that stuff. You can live in it. If you have to I was there. I lived in it. Okay. And I didn't see myself complaint. As a matter of fact, I used to pull out a gags like what you're about to pull. I would walk into the station wearing a Hawaiian shirt Hawaiian shirt jacket.

They didn't disagree with you. Well, how they gonna do that. Because it was obvious by the do fall stuff, you're doing. Oh, you guys stick Ono Noto?

2001 Old Dominion 500 from Martinsville Speedway
This is Marin classic races. Presented by Sonoko the official fuel of NASCAR. And also brought to you by Hercules tires right on our strength. Mar in radio presents NASCAR today. Sponsored by Circuit City. We know how you feel. That's why we're here Circuit City. We're with you. Well, that's car. Winston Cup series is operating on overtime today were a day late. But ready to go racing in the Old Dominion five hundred everybody. I'm Joe more along with Barney hall. Welcome back the martinsville speedway where a day late. We're going to bring you the Old Dominion five hundred yesterday. Barney. It took us all day waiting hoping maybe disguise with clear never did had the plug this afternoon. And now my beautiful day weights us here today for the running of this race while the prettiest as I've seen in martinsville in a long long time and the trackside everybody is ready to go yesterday. They were kind of dragging around down there. Pulling the tarps out trying to keep their pits dry and everything else. There's just a whole brand new enthusiasm down in the pits and in the garage area who this morning as you pointed out it's the last short track race of the year. So everybody I talked to this morning's if we wrinkle up the car a little bit. So what we don't need it again for almost what about six months. Yeah. It's got to be a while. We have to bring out the short track car once again, and you know, looking back over the years. I believe we figured this morning in the last ten years. It's been about four times we've had to race on Monday more. Here at martinsville because of rain out situations and just about all those Monday morning races turned out to be very interesting events. I think everybody's kind of in a hurry to move ahead. But yet they have the opportunity to win a race on the short track for the final time in the season. And it brings out the best sometimes the worst and everybody that makes for a very exciting day. We'll be going trackside here shortly and hear from some of the drivers in a minute. We're back at the martinsville speedway. Getting ready to run the Old Dominion five hundred. And as we said just a moment ago. Forty-three drivers ready to get down to it. And a good return crowd here. Joe looking through these grandstands. We're about eighty percent full a lot of folks, of course, had to go to work today. Others were supposed to have gone to work today. But I'm magin there's quite a few call in sick situations. Because these folks definitely wanted to see the Old Dominion five hundred Ron here today. Well, Todd Bodine is on the bud pole. It's his third, bud. Pole of this two thousand one season starting up front today. A day late Jim Phillips is ready to go. Let's find out ninety three point seven two four miles per hour. The bud pole winnings. But first time what can we expect them this race track? Started this race. I think it's going to be pretty good. You know, the rain usually washes racetrack off and with concrete that usually gives you some better grip right away. You know, this race goes along you get up around three hundred laps and you're gonna see a car slip and a slide. And that's because there's a lot of rubber built into the really ground rate into the concrete. So I think it's going to be pretty decent track right away. And hopefully, we can keep this KMart. Blue light special around the front all day and stay out of trouble. Keep defenders on it and bring it home with a top five. And if we got a good enough car, what's go to win talked about happy hour said you had two different cars in happy hour one. These like pretty good one. You didn't like at all. So a top fives at realistic. I think so. You know? I mean this race is just really hard to run. There's so many things that that dictate the outcome. And you know, a lot of it is how good the cars, and I think we've got a decent car. I know we gotta top ten car. And if we do the right adjustments. We get the right breaks make the right strategy calls. You know, there's no reason we can't get a top five. But you know, we got to be realistic and our goals. And and you know, we need to finish we need to get a lot of points. And if we got a shot to win that's what we're going to do. That's Todd Bohdan third, bud. Pole of the year ninety three point seven two four miles per hour. The whole boat. I and family has a lot of history here at martinsville. Dale Earnhardt, jR, will start second today. He's great qualifying run surprised everyone including him. I was say would be a fair statement in the last four races. Dale juniors. Finished third second and fourth. What about a first place finish today? Tony resute. He is with him Dale Earnhardt, jR, sitting in his Budweiser Chevrolet. Great qualifying Ron starting second. This is the same car you had on this in the spring. So what changes did you make the find all this speed? Well, we went to test to some tracks to get, you know, get some data and gets information just come here and hopefully have a fast race car and it paid off. So we leave at five o'clock in the morning to go test at homestead so we can go down there and try to do the same thing. So we just putting in a lot of effort lot har- work to really finish the season all from good notes. Hopefully, we'll get a good finish today. There were quite a few cautions in the spring race in the old days. You could tear up the fenders on the car and still run good. But it seems like these newer cars, you got to kind of keep them in tact. How important is patience today and keeping the fenders on this Chevrolet still tear them up run good district, but just have been a suspension or Benneteau win or mess up the wheels so do beating and banging just hit him hit him square in the back or get run over square either way, but stone bumped tires. That's what's important, you bumped the Carver lot and Benneteau and knockedout car starts driving different. So keep them here. Have. The car here. Turn to the center and get up off the corner. Now, not spend a tire. So you need to keep the car straight and escape defenders on at basically, Kim. But they, you know, hey, get one here without a left front vendor. And I think we can do the same thing searching for his first win on a short track. Dealer NAR junior. Roles off second. Mike Wallace had a good qualifying run here on Friday afternoon at the Mobil one Ford for Penske south racing. He'll start twelfth today. A surprising thing, I guess is. The fact that it practice on Saturday. He was the fastest thing out there. But you're from Mike Wallace Kevin O'Neill of Charlotte. North Carolina is with him. Mike Wallis sitting here getting strapped into the Mobil one Ford and Mike you got to be pleased with the way this cars running fastest in happy hour on very excited about mobile one four Taurus Penske racing. Everybody's done. A phenomenal job. The car was fast in both practice sessions on Saturday. You know thick race track. Give us thirty laps here. It'd be back to what it was over the week. And hope you just have a great Dane like to be the first one done here. Dan the five hundred laps this week. All right. This is your second week in this. Car. How are things going for Mike Wallis things are going wonderful where so you can't ask for anything more. I got everything I need FARs race team. Goes you got a great great race team. All the parts pieces. All the technology could ask for you know, where surely haven't explored at all yet in this short period of time. But the nice part is I know it can roll down pit road and had them fourteen half. Fifteen second pitstops. It keeps us into race Motors are really good chassis. Good. Just Mike Wallace's having a great time Roddy. Thank you very much. Mike wallace. He'll start today's race. From the twelfth position coming up. We'll hear from a couple of former winter's here at martinsville, Dale Jarrett, and Jeff Gordon. Brief pre race ceremonies underway here track side of the martinsville speedway. It's been very competitive over the last few times we've been to this race track in the last eight races. We've had eight different Winston Cup winners here at this track. Maybe a ninth went here today for the martinsville speedway. This is Emma are in radio. The restrict to the road home fill up with sin open, the official Hewlett NASCAR Sonoko mixed. High quality performance bills for the greatest drivers in the world both on and off the track. Whether you're pulling up to the pump or experiencing the excitement being at the track on race day. This will be a four car tanks. They've already topped it up with Sonoko service complete secondhand Fano fuel, and he's doubted away from trusts enough to be the fuel that keeps you going capture. The essence of racing and Philip with the official fuel of NASCAR Sonoko. It's a lot of difference in this morning at martinsville speedway in yesterday morning here. We had heavy rains falling over the race track. Everything was soaking wet it stayed that way all day long today, brilliant, sunshine. It's going to be a beautiful day for racing. Even if it is a Monday Dale Jarrett had a good qualifying run. He'll start in the fourth position a winner here in the spring, Jim Phillips. Yes, he is Joe, but after Kansas hurting a little bit. So last week he was a mile a half racetrack the Lowes Motor Speedway today. It's a half mile. Is it going to be tough on you today, turning his sharp? These turns are this is a tough racetrack. Even when you're feeling. Well, this is a tough place, but we'll get through it. I'm going to be okay in thank got a good race car. So that makes it even better last three times. Here's been really good for you. So did you bring back the same car that she won't win earlier this year? Yeah. This is the same race car and pretty much the same setup with a few modifications. We thought we could be a little bit better than we think we have made him a little bit better. So hopefully, it'll give us a chance track position is going to be of utmost importance. The field is so closest difficult to pass anybody. No matter how good your car might be in might be a little faster. Just if goal to pass so well head to play all our cards, right? And hopefully at the end we'll be ready to visit victory lane. Again. Will he pulled out the aces late this spring here at martinsville? Maybe do it again today that's deal. Jerry starting four. We'll find out. Dave Blaney had a good qualifying run. He will start from tenth position today as only run three previous races martinsville. And he certainly like to turn this solid qualifying run into his first top five finish this year. Let's find out if he thinks he can do it. Tony Zuhdi is with him. And there are a lot of unknowns for Dave Blaney one being the sponsors going away to he's not sure if he's coming back to this team so qualifying tenth how big a boost was that to you. And this Amoco team. Definitely was we've had a good car ever since. We unloaded the on Friday. And it's been it's been driving. Good. It's been breaking good accelerating. Good. So you know, it was it was really decent last practice on Saturday. We'll we'll get started here. See how we stack up your best finish on a short track. So far this year eighteenth at Bristol? You were twenty ninth in the spring. Does this car have what it takes to get? You a top ten today. I think it definitely does the way it's been it's been running on weekends. So like I said we'll just see how we stack up early on. Obviously try to stay out of trouble here. What we got form later on while he was one of the fastest cars in half hour. He was eighth. Dave Blaney Rozov tenth. Jeff Gordon has one here at the martinsville speedway. Three times moment. We'll hear from him. I let's pause ten seconds for station identification on our radio the voice of NASCAR at martinsville speedway. A lot of folks are looking at Jeff Gordon as we told you he's one here three times before and Kevin O'Neill. L? He's looking for his seventh victory of this season. Yes, he is. I'm sitting here with Jeff Gordon, and Jeff you've been in victory lane. As Joe said three times about today, a great car. You know, we learned a lot about this car in this track in this tire. The last time we're here got another good start position. So hopefully, we can capitalize on that. And keep this DuPont Chevrolet at front here. And sure would like to lead some laps today. And if we can lead some apps, I think we got shot at back during practice you guys seventeenth eighteenth nineteenth as far as practice speech were concerned. What adjustments have you made on the car for today? Well, we weren't real fast on new tires. And I think that's why we weren't high up down the list, but we're real good on the middle and longer parts of the run, which is a good thing. But we tried to improve it, you know, at the very end of Iran on real tires, and we also try to improve the began the run. So we we hope to change that we made did do that. But you know, rain is washed all the rubber off the tracks. It's going to be interested in here at the beginning. I'm sure the tracks. Go change a lot during the day or Jeff Gordon. He rolls off third. This. Afternoon. He's always a favourite whether it's at martinsville or whether it's some of the bigger tracks. Bobby Hamilton start sixteen today. Bobby one at martinsville in April of ninety eight this team has finished strong and four of their last five races. Can they win or run top five today? Jim Phillips's with Bobby? Well, as a matter of fact earlier this year Barney he finished fourth year at martinsville. You've been here before can you win today? We've got a real good car GM. We tested up here for two days and did nothing but rice run stuff Ronak seven hundred ninety miles and both happy hours or both practices for happy hour. We never put new tires on in our quickest slaps of both them were at the last lap of the practice. So we're really good on law runs need to see what the race track. Does. I it's going to be real snick for everybody. When it first starts lay some rubber down. And I think he should be good. So used to used to be Japan here. Get four new tires every time the cost would come out and to be a good shape. But it's not that way anymore. There's the strategies changed quite a bit while the strategy because Goodyear's got a batter tire. You know? We always had a good tire here at the open. It's a harder tyre the thing. Run fast for a long long time. So. We almost got into a gas modest deal into spring who ever heard of that at martinsville. So I'm sure we'll do the same thing there. But a lot of two tires sometimes this guy. So it'll be interesting. I'm sure it will starting sixteenth one of the favorites today. Bobby Hamilton team has really been charged up over the last few weeks. Barney after they got word that square D. Sponsored is coming back for the next two years there set and ready to go and that does a lot for lifting at team spirits. Yeah. When you know, you're locked in sponsorship wise, and you're okay. And you've still got good personnel in the money to go racing. Again, takes a lot of pressure off every bus certainly so here towards the end of the season. When a lot of folks are still looking for sponsors still looking for rides as we start thinking about the two thousand two Winston Cup season rich pickles, another guy pretty happy today. He got the call from the Morgan McClure race team to drive the Kodak Chevrolet here this weekend. And he responded with a great qualifying run. He'll start eighteenth today. Tony Zuhdi is with him. Joe? It seems like anytime there's an opening to drive at martinsville. Rich Bickel is the first person called what is it about this track that suture driving style? So well. Always get round here. It's going to like an old track back home Lake Geneva, Wisconsin for the retour that happened recruit figure it but got to thank the Morgan McClure teams. Forgive me, shot the driving this Kodak max Ville Carlo this weekend. I kind of trying to debut again to get myself back in this side of the fence. We drove a bodies car last year and had a homeless the top ten grown in had a good run going any this year in a fifty card. Hopefully today, I can run this four-car up the front show. These guys this where I belong in gem looking for ride for next year is best finish at martinsville. Was fourth back in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight that's rich Bickel. Well, Jeff Burton qualified twenty-fourth. But that will not be where he starts here this afternoon. We'll follow up on that. In a moment. Martinsville has been his playground in recent years in the last six races here he scored five top five finishes and in nineteen Ninety-seven. He went on to win at martinsville.

But he's taking his time coming up through the field right now. Meanwhile, the front of the pack right now here.

Once again, here's Mike Wallace. Prior to make the move on. Todd Bodine who is now fallen back to the fifth position Mike Wallace. And Dale Jarrett are bearing down on him. I don't think it's a question of if he's gonna get his as the question of wind has really struggling to keep that. Hey, Mark four down on the bottom of the racetrack. The handle he's just not there. Mike Wallace looking to the inside can't find at earless style. And if he can get an opening and get offended underneath Todd simply can't keep that car down the apron of the racetrack.

Trouble Turner before Joe Herbie Sadler. Spins around right in the middle of the field doesn't make any contact with anybody. They dived to the inside of the racetrack in the outside, and we will remain cautioned free. And that's the second time hurries head problems in both ends of the racetrack. Now last time over in a turn to this time it turned over four and both times he corrected. Also while we were away. There was a change for the second spot at happened on the back straightaway. Jeff Gordon found a hold of the inside of Dale Earnhardt jR, powered his way on him. Now, he's off in hot pursuit of a leader. They weren't why traffic Jeff Gordon inhabited thread his way through traffic. He's caught. Hervey sadler. Who spun just a moment ago coming off Turner before has no problem getting around him. But he's got about four or five more cars up there that they'll have to thread their way through including leader, Ricky craven pack Ricky's caught in a bit. Big bunch of traffic over intern threes, Stacy competent fighting his way down the side lane. He'll try make a hole underneath penny. Wallison craving for the moment will have to sit and watch that battle. But second-place Jeff Gordon also has traffic to deal with buckshot Jones sits directly head of him. Here goes craven working on the first of those lapped cars off turn to craven decide. You'll take a paint to the outside of the Stacey comfortable machine to try to fight his way under the penny. Wallis it's great anatomy outside. Now. This is where you find out. Just how good you race car is fifty one actually fifty two laps into the Old Dominion five hundred with a leader catches the tail end of the field. Martinsville being a half mile speedway. You're going to be in traffic all the way around. Nobody's going to give you a break to get down to the inside. He'd have to force your way in their day booty or you just make the hard move and go round the outside and many Barnea car the books dominant on open racetrack less than average traffic. Craven right now is having trouble as he continues to work the back bumper Stacey counter like some problems, Dale Earnhardt, jR. Tony Stewart just flashed by him. The last time they came down the start finish line. And Dale junior is kind of pulled over and Lennon goes Stewart picks up spot hits down the back straightaway. And the battle for the lead navigating heat up Jeff Gordon hundred bucks shot Jones is on the back of the leader. Lee Falin to believe cars get together. There's trouble in turnover to Robert Pressley owes around feedbacks. The her engines Ford into the outside retaining wall auction on the speedway. I one of the day. It comes out at lap. Fifty four Presley continues to sit there with a Taylor the car up against the wall. He's caved at in real bad back. You shoved it in about two or three feet. But the yellow flag is out. Let's go back to turn three single car incident in turned number two Barney, or at least just Robert Pressley that got around. I'm sure there was contact with somebody else, but he has definitely compact at the tail end of Jasper Ford, and he will limp. His way to pit road Robertson. Having some good runs here the last several weeks, but he is very thickly in the rumor mill going into next season. Matter of fact, he had formed the team just yesterday that he will not be back to drive the Jasper motorsports car next year and a spoke of one of the team members. They said the Doug the bobble the press. Of Jasper motorsports. The owner of the team will be making an announcement this coming week as to who will replace Robert Pressley in the Jasper car right now it goes directly into the garage with a lot of back in damage the machine in the caution. Flag flies for the first time this afternoon. It's a pricey Barney. We've gone fifty five laps. That's the first caution. Yeah. I was made the comment of open goes on a commercial break that we've already set a record here bars in the back because normally at this racetrack nine times out of ten there'd be a cautioned the first fifteen laps. But it took us about fifty three laps to get this one from the field just about everybody will dive onto pit road. Led by Ricky craven. Jeff Gordon is in Tony Stewart's on pit road. Also Earnhardt, jR, comes in along with Todd Bodine, the leaders will have to go all the way down toward turns one and two because you pit almost to a little better than halfway around this racetrack there in front of Jim Phillips, Ricky craven his in Bardi bright side tires going on the Ford. Let's see if they opt for four they do draw to Bobby Hamilton a Tony Stewart getting four tires Jerry natives getting a chassis adjustment. Wartburg is in Johnny Benson is an. Jeff Gordon's as an along with the car offered. A Todd Bodine's should be coming in to get four tires and fuel. He said that the okay Mela swigging outta Tony. Zuhdi Dale Jarrett in they made a chessy adjustment took off for tires. Jodi, mitchum, Ken rusty Wallace. With a great stop. He was in a way four tires. Also Dave Blaney. Mike Wallace was in Iran. Hornets was in rich Bickel is in Hermes Sadler's now in probably trying to get rid of those flat spotted tires from his two spans now down to Kevin O'Neill. All right. Sterling Marlin Zan he picks up to tires gets out real quick try to get some better track position. Brett Bodine took two tires. He's down in a way. Casey, Atwood just came in. He took four tires. He's down in a way. Also, Jason Leffler Kurt Busch. And Elliott Sadler. All took four tires and they're back out on the speedway. Hey the race off pit road. Going to be won by Jeff Gordon's team. They get him back onto the speedway. I came out. Right behind him was Tony Stewart followed by Mike Wallace. And then Ricky craven. And ward Burton utter caution for the first time this afternoon at martinsville speedway. Is that after noon yet? No, it's not now Robert Presley hit the wall over in turn to. So it's a I caution of the morning Matt Kenseth and Stacy Compton did not come into pit. So Kensit's takes over the race lead. Stacy Compton now is second to the martinsville speedway. This is our in radio. Read flag is out here at martinsville speedway. And Matt Kenseth now the race leader he is pulling away from second-place Stacy Compton. Jeff, Gordon is third. Tony Stewart fourth and Mike Wallace's fifth feeling a little bit of heat from Ricky craven her even looking down on the inside lane off to nothing. They are couple of cars further back side-by-side battle the last car. Battling wheels a wheel now birth. Remember, the two cars that ride first and second did not make a pitstop. That's mad Kansas and Stacy Compton. So they're running on tires that are about sixty laps worth of tire wear about their Jeff Gordon has only two tires. He took only two tires Jim Phillips that form is just a moment ago. So he's about to catch second-place overturn three that battle for eight cities party. Fuck John Jones has been overtaken now Wartburg outside later failure heart failure Bernard junior squeezes to the outside of the start finish line easily gets by buckshot Jones next in line. You've got the car of Todd Bodine also lined up there. Bobby Labonte and Dale Jarrett. Trying to make the move everybody thinking into the high Trump turn to one car gets turned around and his rich Bickel little contact by Robby Gordon going off into the corner. Bickel drive in the Kodak Chevrolet trying to refi waiting to see if the caution flag will come out. Now, it does as the leaders now reached her number two Bickel could not get the car refired in time. Now, he drives away. But there was no. No further contact, and it looks like Barney that that came out as a result of a little contact between Robby, Gordon and rich Bickel racing for position. They're in turn to rich made little contact. Now, the two cars get together. And he ends up spinning around went out toward the outside wall. He's coming off turnover. Four right now, we're going to look and see if he did but sheet metal damage to the car if indeed even hit the wall don't believe he did they'll see any sign of any damage on the right side of the car. But we're under caution for the second time, again rich Bickel spinning out over and turns one and two Robert Pressley. The only driver out of the race. Let's see what put him out here with Robert Pressley in the garage in Robert what happened buddy. Just this car was great today. This kind of sat in. Earn went up in the corner. They're going into three about the break. Get a little bit finding Palin then went off into one the next lap. They're not I guess why the front hub broker Seidman. The rotor come live from just brakes and decide to shove it up into third year. All right. Robert Pressley in the garage. They're working on the car going to try to get him back out and get some valuable Winston Cup points. Robby Gordon moment ago making a little contact again as we said, we're rich Bickel over in terms one to to turn him around. Here comes Bickel not a pit road. And Johnny Benson is bringing his car back into the pits. Also as they both head down in front of Jim Phillips well party. Johnny Benson KB at earlier and took two tires. But that particular start of the road he said, he just had no grip at all. So they coming get now which age left side tires, and they are doing just but to try to make the car grip better on Johnny bits his car a little witch into lift rear eventually came out after that stop running into fifteenth position. So he gave a very good position for. The restart obviously that problem quite severe rich Bickel. Also now moving back onto the race track. It looks like the sheet metal damage was minimal on his car later on in today's broadcast Barney, and I will select the winner of the Ray bestest break of the race award. The driver who experiences the best break during today's race. We'll see a five hundred dollars donation awarded to the motor racing outreach. Children's ministries on his behalf Rebecca's breaks the official breaks of NASCAR. While we're under caution before they go back to green. Let's take you back through the running order Matt Kenseth fence Stacy Compton stayed on the racetrack moment ago. So they ride first and second Jeff Gordon who did pit is third. Tony Stewart's fourth Mike Wallace's fifth. Ricky craven six ward Burton ride. Seventh dealer junior is eight Todd Bodine is ninth tenth is Bobby the body Dale Jarrett's up to eleven Jerry day. Do his twelve Sterling Marlin is thirteenth fourteenth is rusty Wallace. Fifteenth is Ricky Rudd sixteenth right now is Mark Martin, Bobby. Hamilton would be seventeenth eighteenth. Joe nemechek? Kenny Schrader is nineteenth in in. The Napa leaderboard was show in twentieth place, right? Now John Andretti Napa where we keep America running field is falling forming up for a restart on the back straightaway. You've got lap cars down the inside. Tasty Atwood as their buckshot Jones. Is there also Dave Marcus those the three cars off the pace already now being joined by Hermes Sadler. The fourth of those machines that are off the left. Here comes the field. Now with Matt Kenseth take it over. We've had Julie changes among three drivers. Kenneth still has not made a pit stop. But he's pulling away from second-place Stacy Compton and third-place Jeff Gordon rally outside of the lap car. Stacey confident try to fight his way around that allows to get away. He opened up six maybe seven Carling's as race down the back straightaway. Finally, get around the outside of Casey, Atwood. He leads the way for Jeff scattered and bit off turn before. Jeff Gordon just before that caution flag came out the go head caught Stacy Compton and looked like he wanted to get underneath even put him down as far as robbing you back to third place. Now, he can barely stay with him. As they go off turned over to the car. That's on the scramble is Mike. Wallace. Wallace goes to the outside on Tony Stewart handed check up a bit. Intern gift north gone a little bit sideways that's up side-by-side for four Wallace goes to the outside of Stewart number four very Naidu around trying to fire the UAW Delphi Chevrolet real making its way around to the outside lane.

Tough Ed by the brew masters at Budweiser who remind you that fresh beer tastes better of the caution flag for the third time here this morning at the martinsville speedway. This came out when Jerry Naidoo spun dab between turns three and four. And if there was any question as to what happened there, at least at NATO's mind. It must have had something to do with buckshot Jones because under the caution Lapidus rammed buckshot going into turn to and buckshot. Rammed him coming off turn number three. Nascar officials set out the word for both of them to settle down Naidu as on pit road in front of Jim Phillips. Yes, he is. Joe Jay's tired, but that's not the end of his troubles Bhaskar ficials studying in front of his car. He will be held a lamp for that caution flag altercation. Also earlier Johnny Benson was back in still trying to find some grip the. Get up off the quarters. We call it forward bikes so still bits and not having his car lacking Watson long ways yet from even getting one hundred laps around already as we said, you will see some sparks in some tempers fly here at martinsville's kind of typical when you come to short track. Like this particularly this race track. Not being banked a whole lot. So that doesn't hold the speed. If the car is not handling real, well, and you carry a lot of speed into the corner. It's got a slip up a little bit. And usually you lean on somebody going through it just kind of part of it. But nobody really appreciates being leaned on in a situation. Like this. Matt Kenseth is the race leader. He took over the top spot when everybody else came into make pitstops back on lap number fifty six he and Stacy Compton stayed out on the race track. He's now the leader. Jeff, Gordon is second Compton writes in the third position we've had two lead changes among three drivers. Todd Bodine started on the bud pole here today. It was Ricky craven taking over on lap ten and admit Kensit's taking over on lap fifty seven. He's been out front ever since its Kenseth. Jeff, Gordon Stacey. Compton? Mike wallace. Tony Stewart the top five six Ricky craven seventh ward burden eight Dale Earnhardt, jR, Todd Bodine now runs in the ninth position. And writing tent this Bobby the body is the field. Now sees the one to go signal displayed. Now, they get the indication. We're about to go back to green here in just a moment. And kinda get back down to it. Again. I don't believe we mentioned it a moment ago. But Jeff Gordon just as at caution came out there had gotten around Stacy Compton to move into the number two spot. So now he's in a great position with a little better rubber on the car. I guess is the best way to put it because Matt Kenseth did not pit. He's not been on pit road. He's still on the same tires. He started this race Auteuil bitten earlier this afternoon. He's about to have eighty laps on this tires, and Jeff Gordon sits right behind him with at least two fresh tires. There were about to see if that will make a difference. Lot of cars lap down or more to the inside of the leader right now. Matt Kenseth pace car behind the pit wall. They're off turn four waiting to see the green flag they do. And they raced to turn over one good restart Kenseth. You'll get away from door by couple of car leaks. They hell hall it over to turn. Two, but Gordon is on the attack real quick off. Turn to around the lap car. Casey Atwood and his off the hunt for the lead now on the back straightaway. Gordon tuck right up on the rear spoiler cars. He lead in four. Now, Gordon pushing down on the inside the track trying to get underneath Matt kids with no way off turnover. Four Kenneth defends the line. They are knows detail back to turn one back can't afford. Jeff Gordon Chevrolet fac- confident dodge running one two three this down the back straightaway. Nobody make a move Gordon's hill right there on the back mapra looking for room on inside out of question. If Jeff Gordon can get around Matt Kenseth is just a matter of wins using a little bit of patience right now has got a strong car makes the move going to turn one. This time gets offender underneath him and Tapsi a little bit kicks him up out of the groove. And Gordon comes away with the leadoff turn to bat. Kansas tried to slam the door on Gordon and very nearly paid the price made a nice safe carpet spinning out Gordon has believes Kansas for second. Mike Waller shuffled to the outside on Stacy Compton. Swings. Lineup off the corner gets by Stacy Compton. Now goes after second place Matt Kenseth they are door to door interred one at once again, Tony Stuart says of the outside lane worked for someone else. I'll try to Wallace around the outside takes over second. Tens of how shuffled back to maybe not for long. Here comes Stewart Stewart on the outside of Matt Kenseth. Couldn't get a run on him coming off the corner of this time Kinsahsa strong in the straightaway. The racist hard in the Turner one. Tony Stewart does the same thing. And Tony's about to come away with third place. They're off turn to new tires. Tell the tale is Stewart goes to the number three spot Ricky craven now looks at high outside at Kempton. He'll take over four Kansas facing topic going backwards jam up from about fourth on back. That is where it side by side for that position. Kim with the inside Ricky craven on the cover four Jason Leffler is Jeff Berg is in. It. Johnny Andretti is in it not severe damage on any of those cars all three drivers to refire stay off on left two out of three. We'll do it. But Leffler loses. Fuck auction is on speedway immediately. Again, it comes out at lap number eighty five or three car pileup right in the middle of turns three and four again. It was John Andretti. Jeff Burton and Jason Leffler. Let's go back turn three. I'll it happens. Fast at turns three and four Barney at had happened quickly there. Somebody got a little bit sideways, and then they just stacked up behind him and those three paid the price. Johnny Andretti with a good bit of hustle to get the Cheerios dodge back underway remain on the lead lap. Jason Leffler also was hustling try to get his car rolling. But I don't believe he made it before the leaders gave around. So the caution flag comes out for the fourth time here this afternoon, and we're not even at the one hundred lap market. Just eighty six of five hundred laps are complete in the Old Dominion five hundred Jeff Gordon is the race leader now with Mike Wallace running second. Well, it's going to be a short week this week since we stayed over an extra day here at martinsville. A lot of folks heading straight on down to the Talladega superspeedway. I imagine some of the campers are already they're getting ready for the running of the sports five hundred a week from. Yes. Today.

Let's go to pit road. And Tony Zuhdi jeopardy came in. He had some damage on the left front. They did manage to pull it away and change tires. They still have the sign out for him. So they're going to bring him in a second time. Make sure there's no damage also in was Bill. Elliot. He took on four tires. John Andretti was in. He also has a left front. Fender that smashed in. It was not rubbing on the tire. But we expect him back in his well Kevin O'Neill down here on bit road on this in Casey, Atwood comes in. He gets two right side tires. Jason Leffler comes in and gets two right side tires and Elliott Sadler. A damage up on the front repealing some of the seat metal away. He gets on the right side gasoline and down in gone. They Marcus also it goes back onto the race track. In the field is just giving the indication we're about set to go back to green flag racing with a comeback around this time where they dropped the green the leader will be Jeff Gordon right behind him as Mike Wallace lining up. Third is Tony Stewart fourth is Ricky craven fifth right now would be ward Burton back in sixth. That's Matt Kenseth. Seventh is Earnhardt, jR, eight Stacy Compton ninth is Todd Bodine and tenth is Bob in the body as a over to turn number three pace car gets in behind the pit wall off turn four Gordon. Looking for the green flag? He sees it. And he set sail for turnover once lap. Cars down to be inside jury. Naidu Herbie Sadler. Buckshot Jones some of those little contact between Jerry Naidu and the leader over in turns one and two and it may cost. Jeff, gordon. The lead your Mike Wallace taking it three wide to the inside is rates the back straightaway. Wallace on the inside. They knew in the middle. Jeff. Tastes it pays off for Mike Wallace. That was a big move by Mike Wallace taken at three y down the back straightaway. He takes over the top spot here at martinsville. With Gordon falling in line and second ad, Alex. Tony Stewart earning daddy inside of a lot car. Jerry naidoo. He Rajin a third spot right behind him his rookie craven number five four Jerry Naidoo felt like he had a good shot to get his lap back in a d did when he made a little contact with Jeff Gordon for second off turnover too. But Mike Wallace in a good heads up driving move said, let's Stockham three deep got plenty of time to get tucked back in before turned number three up there. He made it work. He's hitting back to three got the lead. And now he's making the most of it. He's cold away from Gordon by four Carling Jeff Gordon by another four over Tony Stewart. He still has not disposed period. They do have interesting to watch that restart nee do teammate. Jeff Gordon was trying to get back on the tail end of the lead lap, Gordon woodland by so Naidu knocked him out of the way, and it paid off for Mike Wallace. As he takes over the lead heads down the back straightaway. Over court. Gordon Coney Stewart now hustles his way underneath Naidu Stewart for third place automobile say do able to flam door on Ricky craven who ride horse all three of those cars brought out the caution a moment ago, Jason lifter John Andretti. Jeff Burton are able to continue Jeff Burton's all the way back to the tail end of the field. And so is John Andretti. Ninety four laps around the school. Board is a sweep down the backstretch. Mike Wallace leads them into three and the one Ford is fraud encounter the race his lead. How five over Jeff Gordon? Another five back to Stewart's coming down the line. They'll complete ninety five laps with Mike Wallace, the leader of the Old Dominion five hundred. We are back at the martinsville speedway. One hundred and fifty laps of gone on the school board. Elliott Sadler continues to lead, and he has opened up a lot of daylight on the rest of the field as he works his way over to turns one two and three up. They're pulling away even more of head more cars gone to the garage area. Let's go there. Now, I'm standing here with Bill Elliott. He's got his dodge here in the garage area and Bill what happened? Okay. Hear what happened is way busted radiator down in that little all down in one and two and just. It blew all around the next thing. I knew thought coked them out or hide it for the guy. They work today. Going hard on these rights cars weekend, wake out. It's just a tough situation in trouble in turnover to Hermes Sadler's arouse Stacy Compton dodges the bullet Sadler for the third time to sap to smoking three sixty punches the button to keep trucking. And he's been lucky to hit a lot of contact with anybody and we remain still under green here at martinsville. When we're talking to Bill Elliott there when that came out just a moment go Elliot apparently through for the day as he said, he wants to hold the radiator pumped all the water out of the car and cook the engine so he is done for the day. Brett Bodine's taken his car back behind the wall. Also out of the race. Tony Stewart we'll to hear from him in a few moments. Jason Leffler was in the garage for awhile each comeback added. Robert Pressley is also out of the race already today. Just two hundred fifty three laps in to this five hundred mile race Elliott Santer still the race leader. That was a close. Call for him coming off turn to if you want to go, Dave moody. Indeed, a lot of the bullet leader was one of Elliot Sadler. Made the move by the wreck. The log jam now has completely broken. Jeff, Gordon, Ricky craven finally got underneath the last car buckshot Jones gone to second and third now two way out of the turn up and turn four head back to turns one to to some pretty good racing going further back Dale Jarrett's had his hands full trying to get through some of that lap traffic and stay up in the front of the pack. And he has got a very strong race car here at martinsville. This afternoon hundred fifty five laps around the board. It's Elliott Sadler. Leading. Jeff, Gordon, Ricky craven third Mark Martin fourth and ward Burton v. I believe of Mark. Martin's got about a stronger cars we've seen all year is hard to believe that Mark has yet to go to victory lane. The cease with the kind of resources they have at rouse racing candidate experience and the cata success that Mark Martin has had in his career. It is very surprising that he's not going to victory lane. So far this two thousand one season kinda surprising. What we saw earlier today. Mike Wallace doing so. Well, but what's happened to him? He led for a while here this afternoon picked up about. Seven positions in the first five laps now Tony resumed. He's back in the fourteenth position. What are they saying about the Mobil one Ford? Well, they're very pleased with the run they're having. But Mike's having a hard time hanging on they were really good on scuff tires. But is this ruins going on the car's been a little bit hard for Mike to handle they told him to settle down. We'll keep working on it. You can work your way back to the front. You know, this is a team. That's still not sure who the driver that machine's gonna be an Mike Wallace is doing the best to try to show them. He should be the one to be in it from now on they what Mike Wallace can drive a race car is proven that. He's won and everything he's been. He's one in the NASCAR craftsman truck. He's one over in the Arkansas vision, he's one in the Bush Grand National division. So he can get the job done. Yeah. And this is the time of the year that you want to get an opportunity like this to show what you can do. Rusty Wallace told the media here on Saturday that the Mobil one Ford may just go away that Karl might not exist next year. They may be a two car team with just rusty. And and Ryan O'Neal drive the other machine. Not Ryan O'Neal Newman. You tried new? But we haven't O'neil the broadcast and this completely confused today. But rusty said that could very well happen, but from Mike Wallace to have a good run here in this mobile one four the closing part of this year with all the rides opening up for next season. All the changes that are going on. This could be a perfect opportunity for him to show what it can do and get a good gig for next season days had some great runs this year when he was in the seven car little bit earlier the nation's rate car were there in the ultra motorsports team has great finishes at both Daytona and Talladega on some of the bigger tracks. We wish him the best is the season winds down hundred and sixty one laps. Go on the board here at martinsville and the Old Dominion five hundred. It is Jeff Gordon Ricky craven Elliott Sadler. Mark Martin ward Burton your top five. Todd Bodine scrambled back up in the front of the field. He is writing six right now. Dale Jarrett has picked up another spot. He's up to seven Ricky Rudd is easing up toward the front of the field. Also, Ricky is now eight third heart junior still in the top ten he rides night and Kurt Busch. Make up the top ten here's Mark Martin making a move going into turnover. Three trying to pick off the third position. We talked about how strong that car is. He showed at now he flashes easily by Elliott Sadler brings along. Ward. Burton who also makes the move going off to turn one Elliott Sadler. Paying the price now for those older tires. Back siding leaders make their way on him. Jeff short another life on Hermes Sadler. Ricky craven running back in the second. Benchmark Hartman Morton her Jeff Gordon wants at the front of the fields. We said a moment ago and Jim Phillips, I guess you can back me up on this. They're running for the Winston Cup championship. They have a healthy lead of well over two hundred points on Ricky Rudd when the two tracks. I think they were the most concerned with a season winds down certainly would be one here at martinsville this afternoon and Talladega next week. They know at martinsville. If you're in the front of the field, if you're leading or somewhere up in that lead pack, your odds are a lot less of getting the car been up exactly right party. That's the reason the first time it came in the pit sale took two tires the keep it up broad that. Sits set time, Jeff is just a measured as opponents. And worked over lap after lap with gun bile got back, but I have a little bit surprised. He's been a little bit of board Gracie. Something's lamp cars left Seib in the past. But he's been doing that coming off the corner sold if the car brought up in pit spit. It was spit out of his way. Jeff, Gordon again goes over to turn three Joe. And also at the end the season, usually when you're running for the championship and the other drivers out there you're racing. No, what's his state for you elicit Cup championship and a huge payoff of well over three billion dollars. They're going to put the pressure on your because they figured you're not going to force the issue. Sometimes you have to they will take advantage of you knowing that you're not gonna push it all that hard because you are racing championship. If the season ended right now, Jeff Gordon would win the championship by two hundred seventy five points. Actually, it's now two hundred seventy one points as Gordon leads and Ricky Rudd is back in the seventh position. But still racist to go throughout the course of this year. There's an opportunity for Ricky Rudd, we've seen the big leads vanish. Like at Richmond. Gordon got caught up in that crash and Ricky Rudd won the race. Both. These drivers know that anything can happen before this year is over and it could change caution is on the speedway the yellow flag waves once more were looking around the racetrack to see what it is. And don't see anybody spun out over there anymore. It looks like the four cars slowed down a bit might have scrub the wall. Anything over in your area, day moody, rich nickel machine got high between turns three and four Bharti. Just barely scuffed the conference from our vantage point, they got to the exit of the corner and just locked the car down momentarily is back under way. So we'll be our sixth caution flag of the afternoon. It's been pretty busy here in the first one hundred sixty nine laps. I Robert Presley hit the wall in turn to that was on lap. Fifty four rich Bickel involved in a crash in turn two and left sixty six Jerry natives spun out after colliding with buckshot Jones on lap, seventy two. We had a three-car crash Beckel map eighty-five that included Jason Leffler, John Andretti and Jeff Burton. Tony Stewart blew up on lap one twenty three and now Bickel with problems the lap one sixty nine here's some of the leaders coming down the. Lane. Jeff, Gordon stays out. But Mark Martin Dale Earnhardt junior and Mike Wallace around the pit lane. Let's go down for an update right side tires on the vibraphone to Mike Martin Mark Martin. I talk to Jimmy fending said they're very pleased with the car. They move around to the left side would it'd be a four tire change also in his Mike Wallace worked in the right side Ron horn today right side tires also in his MAC his four tire. Shop. Also, Jeff Burton Dow down to Jim Phillips, Dale Earnhardt, jR, down here. Tony, Jeff, Gordon radioed. His crew said the car feels good they decided to stay out. But juniors getting four fresh Goodyear tires at seventy six racing fuel and he is down. And he is away down to give it to you. Jason Leffler just brought the Cingular wireless dodge back in a pit road. These didn't right side tires Stacy Compton. Just in four right side tires couple of cans and Unocal seventy six gasoline. And also Brett Bodine just pulled basically behind his pit stall here. He had break problems. They just changed the brakes on that race car. He's back out on.

He's not had a good weekend here at martinsville for the running of the Old Dominion five hundred. Here's the field. Now. Getting ready for the restart coming off turn four. Jeff Norton leads down. Green flag goes in the air, and Jeff Gordon is long gone in a hurry. Trying to get away from Ricky craven book shot Jones come charging up underneath him. Try to get up there and get a shot at the leader to get a lap back won't be able to do. It as they work off turned number two and head for three. Now, it's going to be warned work, but having to deal with cars, he takes it to the outside. Jeff, Gordon, Ricky trae craven hit away burden goes at the outside of the lap car of buckshot Jones. He's the third place machine. Ward Burton is just behind him the car of Todd Bodine also trying to advance in the outside lane and turn to or on the outside trying to get some. Home buckshot Jones. As a matter of fact, here's Jerry Naidu driving. These birds Kodi changes lanes. He'll go to the inside and make a bit now for third place and a scramble up yet to wide coming off the corner part of that slap traffic ward Burton's hung in the high groove going through turns one and two no place to go down to the inside of the racetrack. Right now comes Dale Jarrett. Trying to move up not to need two sides. I believe I'll go around the outside. They go back to three four peddling hard right now. Trying to get himself some daylight to get back to the bottom. He's not going to do a Todd vote on is there at four side by side for the third position coming across the stripe in his Todd Bodine down low ward Burton pie while upfront. Ricky craven starts putting pressure on. Jeff, Gordon, again is on the attack at the exit a turnover to the Gordon straight as an arrow pointed. We'll hold him off now. But again craven all over the backbone full. I remember Ricky craven had good on the short runs when they put on new rubber. And when they started the race. And all of a sudden he dives underneath Jeff, Gordon and turnover. One Gordon just pulls over says have edits you got a little bit of race. Maybe than I do right now. And he takes the lead. Well, here comes Gordon right back on him and turn three Ricky craven dot belief in may of bounced it off the curb at the exit the track the door is open backcomb store for the point side by side for the top spot coming down the line by inches. This time it's Ricky craven taken control. But Gordon is still there'll inside or Dowd low framing pie or a craven flexes some muscle. No curb trouble this time, he drives around Gordon at craven will break into the open air. Ricky craven fact of lease three two cars at the front of the field. The leader Ricky craven second-place right now is Jeff Gordon then a couple of lab cars riding directly behind them there between the third-place machine is go back to turns one and two the third place car being ward Burton. He's got a long ways to go before he can get up there and mix it up with them at war to spend entirely too much time. I'm sure by his opinion here in the early going cars trying to get in contact with the leaders. He writes behind Jerry Naidoo the high buckshot Jones both eleven arrear for just one hundred eighty three laps into the Old Dominion. Five hundred here at the martinsville speedway. Already. Eight lead changes among six drivers this afternoon. We've had cautions fly six times out of the race. The cars of Tony Stewart. Bill Eliot and Robert Pressley right now, it's Ricky craven leading over Jeff Gordon. Ward. Burton third fourth is Todd Bodine fifth is Dale Jarrett. Ricky Rudd runs and six rusty Wallace seventh Bobby Hamilton is eighth. Bobby Labonte ninth and tenth is Joe Nemechek this mid race update.

Fourth places held down by Todd Bodine right behind him rides Dale Jarrett and Ricky Rudd and rusty Wallace and Bobby Hamilton. They go to three everybody remaining fail. At least from the moment where he runs takes a down here. It falls back in line, right? Pull the rear deck of the machine of Dale Jarrett while Jared follows Todd Bodine upfront now, it's Jerry Naidu again. Trying to get back on the tail end of the lead lap working hard on Ricky craven. Sure, how hard crave it's gonna fight. He does not both to the outside. What's your show, Jerry three games? So laugh, prematurely changed the lead. Edger? They do is worked hard all day long. What's he went a lap down to get himself in a position to get it back? And he finally does one hundred and eighty seven laps around the board. It is Ricky craven leading. Jeff Gordon is second riding in third right now is ward Burton fourth is Todd Bodine fifth. This Dale Jarrett. Ricky Rudd is six rusty Wallace, seventh Bobby Hamilton is eighth that pack. The traffic goes over to three five to Bobby Labonte who's playing. Contention for the first time this happened right behind him Jones amo check. And then Kenny Schrader what car that's backpedaling in a big hurry. Mark Mark SEM. Mike Wallace who ran up. Brought earlier slid all the way back to the second third of this field. And they're struggling with the last car of Hermes. Sadly, right Dallas they make their way down Hlavac spring. Mark Martin is followed back to the sixteenth position. He was among the front five here. Just several laps ago was watching a spirited battle for a while between Dale Earnhardt junior and Robby Gordon they were going at it pretty hot and heavy coming through the corners. That was back for about the fourteenth fifteenth position actually see that was for the nineteen spot. But like Dale junior has cleared Robby Gordon machine Gordon falls back in line at gathers it up somewhat for the time being still running in the top twenty. So watching that battle from Todd Bodine on back Dale Jarrett. Putting pressure on him with Ricky Rudd putting pressure on DJ Jared taking a look to the inside every time he has to check up down low road has ideas about going after him in the Highland. So far. Nobody gets the job done. Now. They stay single file has come out of the corner. Hit down the straightaway. Go back to turn to one and two one hundred ninety one laps on the board driver. We haven't talked much about who ran out at Memphis yesterday. And then flew back in here last night to run the race here. We're talking about. Kevin Harvick looking at the school board to see where he is. He is writing fourteenth right now and has not been able to get up inside the top ten, but he's made some pretty good advances. Having started at the tail end of the field. Let's get a report out of his pit. I believe Tony resute is their party. He is in no time in this car. All Rick mass qualified the car. Muzzle practice it I'm talking with fruit cheap. Kevin hamlin. Kevin you made your way from the back of the field up to fourteen. What's Kevin Harvick saying about the car? GM gooder was body pharaohs xactly who's like in right now we just heard little bit better than try to get a little more four fight deal. But we'll people organically. So Kevin Harvick looking for more forward bite to try to get the court. It's weird better in the quarter. These are tight corners in Bharti dip, the car doesn't turn you won't be successful here. Martinsville what it's all about. It's breaks and being able to turn here on this paper clip of a layout of a racetrack. Got an expected. Rusty Wallace will be doing real well today, but he's not doing that. Good. It has lost two more spots up off the back. Straightaway is Bobby Hamilton and Bobby the body cleared.

Each has had a hard time making overcoming that lapped down and get himself back in contention run up in the top five or ten. Jimmy Spencer has not been a factor thus far today. Gbs had his share problems car kind of not working in the corners. Like he wanted to to Jimmy's show all the way back in thirty seconds position for the moment. And if you're wondering about a few drivers that we might not have mentioned Brit Bohdan, Tony Stewart, Bill Eliot and Robert Pressley or all in the garage area. How about a great job by Kurt Busch? Only his second Winston Cup racer at martinsville speedway. Here. He is leading on a track. Some of the veterans have never had any success at this tough old racetrack. Kurt Busch has only raced here. Once in Winston Cup competition has a couple of NASCAR craftsman truck series starts here at this racetrack. But it seems it's the perfect combination for him. He made the move by. Jeff Burton here. Several laps ago. They got by race leader. Mark. Martin his teammate. And now is pulling away from Mark Martin by about four Carlex here. It left to forty five Bush Martin Jeff Burton Kenny Wallace. Pretty well. Spread out among the front four. You got Mike Wallace back in the fifth position. Further back in sixth. Is Elliott Sadler. Terry Labonte as we told you having a good day. He's up to the seven th position. And further back got pretty good racing from Bobby Labonte on back body. Hold eight nine inches shifts or ten today. Jared eleventh is Ricky craven they're all working each other. Now, they've raced pretty hard. But really have done the side besides slam bang that we see here at martinsville times because we are still three laps away from the halfway point in an awful. Lot of racing left here at martinsville in the Old Dominion five hundred one driver that we've mentioned a couple of times it's beginning to work as way to the front of the field. Michael Walter, Michael the latest rundown shows up in fourteenth position having a pretty good run. I believe Tony resute. He's been around that pit area. Yeah. They're very pleased with the run evac, CI slugger lib. What's Michael say about the car? Right now this little bit tied. Now, we'll get like quoted lap sold the tires most people this little Thai right now. But we'll get a caution. Here. We'll pit in a little bit. So Michael Waltrip just a little bit tight. They can get a caution. They hope to keep him up front all day. And this is welcome news for this Napa team this year other than the Daytona five hundred in the Pepsi four hundred has not been a very positive here for this team. They've you're close to get into that caution. Just then as Dave Blaney got a tap from behind coming off turn four complete need loop his machine in front of oncoming traffic. But before the caution came out he was able to write the car garage. Did not come out. So we remain onto the green flag. Dave Blaney hints loses a lot of ground. Kurt busch. He'll show in the way over Mark Martin working as around this race track hasn't called any slower traffic and Barna that may be the real test for rookie Kurt Busch. Trying to work his way through traffic with veterans like Mark Martin. Jeff Burton just behind him. Yeah. He's going to have to catch that -til in the field very shortly at the pacy setting, and we'll find out just how well he works lap. Traffic with not a lot of experience here at the short track too. Eight hundred fifty one laps on the board to cross flags came out. Just a lap ago to indicate we're halfway home in the Old Dominion five hundred. Why don't we give you a rundown way back through the field? Kurt Busch leads Mark Martin second. Jeff Burton is third. Kenny Wallace is fourth and Mike Wallace's fifth Elliott Savary six it's Terry body seventh. Jeff Gordon eighth. Dale Jarrett is ninth Ricky craven his tenth eleventh goes to Bobby the Ponti hut. Strickland's twelve Bobby Hamilton's thirteenth. Kenny Schrader is fourteenth in ward Burton fifteenth. The Napa leaderboard shows Michael Waltrip sliding back to sixteenth right now. Todd Bodine is seventeenth. Joe Nemechek is eighteenth. Johnny Benson is nineteenth. Sterling Marlin his twentieth. Twenty-first is John Andretti. Kevin harvick's twenty-second twenty-third is Matt Kenseth twenty-fourth is Earnhardt, jR, twenty-fifth is Ron Hornets. Ricky Rudd now back to twenty-six position rusty Wallace twenty-seventh Stacy Compton, Twenty-eight throbbing, Gordon, twenty-ninth, Jimmy Spencer is thirtieth Jerry Naidu rides thirty-first. Kevin the pace thirty-second buckshot Jones. Thirty third Casey, Atwood, thirty four. Dave Blaney thirty fifth. Army Sadler's thirty. Six day, Marcus thirty-seven, rich pickled posted thirty eight Jason Leffler thirty ninth and the four cars that are in the garage Brett bowed. I'd Tony Stewart Bill Eliot and Robert Pressley. Let's pause ten seconds for station identification on our in radio the voice of NASCAR. Just past the halfway point in the Old Dominion five hundred here at the martinsville speedway in Virginia MR in radio. Bring it to you live here on Monday afternoon. I'm Joe along with Barney hall, Dave moody, covering the action force the turns today while the pit lane Jim Phillips, Tony Zuhdi and Kevin O'Neill event. Eleven Lee changes. It's been a very competitive race in the first half right now rookie Kurt Busch leads the way over Mark Martin. Jeff Burton Kenny Wallace and Mike Wallis, but it's a long ways to go. Still two hundred forty four laps in this wind gusts a pretty good racing going on among three cars, a little further back in the pack in the form of Todd Bodine. Joe Nemechek is in that pack and slow Johnny Vincent there over three hundred. We're going side by side down. Walter hits the advantage on the outside. Now, here's Neva check dive into the Bohdan does they shuffle the deck in turmoil. And he tries to get a position there won't be able to do it. A lot of traffic also in that pack is Sterling Marlin, but try to work his way a little backup toward the front. Also in about to catch that group of cars here comes Kevin harvick's given harming is right on the bottom of the race track. Hard trotted. Join that fray struggled off the bottom and giving up spots even deck drives around him down. Here comes Johnny Benson on the outside. One more battle a little bit closer to the front. Jeff, Lord, Dale Jaren and Ricky craven as a tandem slashing their way through the pack all three of them now move underneath villian, raven slides down to the inside of the frac clears the machine of Elliott, Saturn gets a little bit of clean air as he tries to chase down Dale Jarrett. Jeff, Gordon and Mike Wallace the cars that lie. Just ahead. How solidly back in the top ten those three of foster wait for the rear after mid socks. Jeff, Gordon, close again on Mike Wallace. It's down to a Carling could four, and that's the way they remain is a hit the straightaway. Let's jump back again on Joe Nemechek and Todd bowed. I they made little contact going down the back straightaway off turn two and Joe Nemechek gets underneath Todd and takes spot away. All those cars. We talked about racing hard about to run down a pack a traffic, they'll catch ward Burton group the cars as a hit back over to turn three John Andretti. Trying to follow the checks example, look at sway. Sway is a little bit of daylight bear turned up some of it. But did find a room as a race move fifth position? Now at a spike Wallace, Jeff Gordon going at it, Gordon makes the move to the inside grabs the spot off turn to finish the fray, tearing his way out of the back of the pack. This time Dale care. Not close enough to drive underneath Wallis. He may make a whole his own. Jeff is just made sure all day, Jeff, Gordon that he's in a good position on the racetrack notice to mobile to go even when he was caught back toward the middle of the field. And we said he wanted to stay up near the front as he could. Because the odds of getting that car wrinkled up for Dame where he couldn't get a good finish kind of was better. If you can stay at the front of the field. Now, he got caught back there about fourteenth fifteenth a few laps ago Joe, but he wrote between Bobby Labonte and Dale Jarrett. I guess he figured he was safer with these guys back there because they know what they're doing not going to do any foolish move. So he just wrote in that pack of wild. Sometimes you gotta use your head a little bit particularly with your racing for a championship. Let's check it downstairs. Well, he's one of those guys that pitted on lap -til seven Mostar's now just beginning to come. I'm in getting passing of guys like on lap, one seventy one who's got about thirty four lamps their tires than Jeff Gordon has you talked earlier about that top grew dot big as good as it was before studying down here. The turn who's a lot of rubber beginning to build up there. Mike Wallace and a lot of success early. This race running that top prove with the rubber build up. He's having to cut cut char off the turn about having the effect. He had earlier the race. We're looking at two hundred and sixty five laps complete here at the martinsville speedway with Kurt Busch. Mark Martin Jeff Burton Kenny Wallace. And Jeff Gordon your top five. We're back onto the green flag here. Regards Ville speedway two hundred seventeen to go. Now, it's advertently and the way there's trouble at turned to turned around on the front end of the Jeff Bergman car facts up at the outside conference everybody scattered again by nobody else involved lady a refi dog. Unfortunately, the yellow flag is out because it looked like you might not get the car. Refired? Nascar puts the caution out for the nine times afternoon back out at lab to eighty four. Let's Quebec over to Dave moody. Dave Blaney would damage on the left front corner. And the right rear of the Amoco ultimate dodge. Wait to see if there is damage on the front end of Jeff Burton car who had some contact with them. The damage does not appear to be severe on Burton's Ford. Zigzags his way down the back straightaway. Trying to get a feel for that car. Very minor cosmetic cabbage on the signal super guard Ford Joe used to work the terms out there, you just get touched by anybody or you can get up out of the groove. And getting some of that loose river that we talked about in that car is gone. They're walking on the shales. Alright. He come in that corner that cars just about to break loose. It's hanging on all it's got there. And yet don't take a whole lot with thinking about touching somebody. And it breaks the car loose the guy who got the good end of that was Casey, Atwood. He was trying to race. Ward. Burton to get back on the tail end of the lead lap. He beat ward back around the line with a caution flag came out. So Casey, Atwood gets back. The tail lead lap gives us thirty two cars on the lead lap here with two hundred and fifteen laps to go. Ward Burton upfront Mark Martin second. Now. Dale Jarrett third. Jeff, Gordon fourth and fifth is Kurt Busch. Kenny Wallace rides in six Ricky craven seventh. Jeff Burton is eighth.

Having repairs made his car earlier this afternoon is decided to go back out and make a few laps if he can get it going again. And he is sitting down at the end of the interest pit road to go back to the racetrack. And ready to go back with them here. Very shortly. We are still under caution. We hadn't won it lab to Seventy-seven. They put the green out at left to eighty three. And before they could get back to the flag stand. They Blaney at the wall and turn number two lab to eighty four and put us right back. Under the yellow flag. Again, Dave started off good today. Had a great qualifying run for this race. But Tony Zuhdi since then he's had all downhill luck. And he's got two big problems here. The first being the left front of the Valence is all smashed in. It doesn't look like there's any radiator damage, but maybe the more of concern is in the back of the car the rear blade pushed all the way in and up that will affect the car in the corners. Now, the hoods gone up there checking that radiator, but. From where I look it looks like there is no fluid at this time feel gets indication. They'll go back green as soon as they come back around. This time of the green flag will be displayed to them at lap two hundred and eighty eight in a race that four martinsville race has been fairly calm. Normally by this time half the field. You look out there and everybody's running with damage or a big black dote on the door where they might contact or somebody put wheeled somebody in the corners. But for the most part today they've been fairly restrained. But we got a long ways to go. They've waived off the restart this time, so it will be at least one more lap. And you know, it never fails party come to a racetrack like this and about the time. We start talking about the fact that it's been a clean race. Nothing has happened. That's when it all starts, and I believe it was on lap fifty three when we said something about well. There's been no cautions in the very next lap. We had the first one of nine that of a Kurd so far today here at the barge Ville speedway. But this is the kind of place that you expect that kind of racing. It's sort of a throwback to the good old days of racing the short tracks. It's almost everybody's hometowns. Where you get out in octave. Moody. Put it your route. You gals new Lena one another and you'd beat you bang. That's expected at a place like martinsville. It always has been I guess it always will be as long as we run here. And it's just good short track racing. Now this time they give the field the indication while I thought they did. And other waved it off one more time. So we're going to make another lap around before we go back to green. Boy, what a difference. A year makes Ken looking back at some of my notes last year coming into this race. Jeff, Gordon who leads the Winston Cup points coming in here this weekend in his quest for the championship was nine then points. Do you realize he was seven hundred and twelve points out of first place last year we hear martinsville in September. That's hard to believe. While certainly isn't. Of course, this year thinks if gone completely the other way for Jeff Gordon it took a while. After Ray Everett ham left that team for them to get things kind of put back together. Remember when he left there next race? Without Ray was here Brian white soul took over and they won that race. And then went to Charlotte the next week in one that race then to kind of went downhill for a while they lost some other team members. It took them about a year to regroup. And boy did they ever regroup this year they've come out of the box. They've won. In six races. And right now lead the championship point standings at this race ended right now, it would be two hundred eighty one the gap between himself and second-place Ricky Rudd, Jeff, Gordon, they've definitely put it together. And there was questions about whether rate Everett ham was the magic that team. Think they've proved out any question that Jeff Gordon is the magic of this operation, though doubt about Greek flag goes back in the air and often running his ward Burton as a leader does often turn of one a couple of left cars. Tuck behind him real quick and kind of put up a little block for him on the rest of the field. Mark Martin the rest of the field. Trying to catch him. They're out of turn to back around fifth party. They got jacked up in a big way. Kurt Busch made a spectacular booth heater underneath Kenny Wallace underneath Jeff Thornton. But he's trapped on the inside now parking. Why now ward Burton the race leader has his hands full buckshot Jones, but flying all day to get back on the lead lap is trying to do it. Big time off turn to. Lane, but Wartburg will have none of it. Just drives away the exit attorneys to go per pack of a loan through the last car shot. Joan Burton the leader out of turnover. Four back into the front straightaway. He's got the lab car bookshop Jones between himself and Mark Martin. And behind Mark Martin. Now as go off in turn number one. Couple of cars trying to make some Brown Dale Jarrett. One of those is he goes off turn two and hits for three eight hundred toback bumper the lap car rich beco- fickle holding onto the bottom lane. He gonna find some mother heckled slips a little bit, but not enough from ninth on back there, beaten and begging it's bumper cars at martinsville. Bobby the bunny leads the pack getting by the lap, carved as Marcus got Mike Wallace just behind him, and Ricky Rudd squeezing the inside of that pack and turn to Ricky Rudd changes lanes in close quarters as they race off turnover to run gets of advantage remain trapped behind the slower Charles day. Mark is a looks like that will be the case has got to be pinned behind Marcus nowhere to go. Dave gives way. The inside and they stack them three deep as it. Go off into turnover. One with Marcus to the inside Ricky Rudd and the Biddle and Jeff Burton on the outside. They get through that one is a fairly did off turn to Ricky Rudd. The one hundred ten miles an hour going into turn one Sean between Marcus on the inside and John ready on the outside. He came away with the spot, but what his race car so entire rookie running in the tenth position right now with Bobby Hamilton just behind him in the eleventh spot you've got John dreading next in line. Did cub. Sterling Marlin still working around the slower traffic shot. Now, Dave Marcus will give way way down to the bottom of rate. A lot of a rate in front to get out of the middle of that fracas. All hi, Kenny Schrader. Yeah. They've loosened Dave Marcus EPA time or to just a moment ago. Sterling Monod got boxed in behind him in sterling gave him the bump for their couple of times day finally got down to the inside of the racetrack in sterling got around. But they're still some quick cars that would like to move around him. Go back over to turn three. Kevin harvick. Detected outside off Marcus right by him rusty Wallace, Jimmy Spencer Elliott Sadler. Leaders now working off turn to onto the back straightaway. It is board Burton showing the way he's got about a five Carling's cushion and a lapped car between himself the second-place machine of Mark. Martin Dale Jarrett Runsen third. Jeff, Gordon is fourth fifth is Kurt Busch. Six now. Kenny Wallace, Ricky craven, his seventh eight Bob the body night this Mike Wallace jet is Jeff Burton still with two hundred and one laps to go. Dillard, heart junior trying to pick up some ground. He spun out a while ago. Lost lap of the race leader's. He's riding along there. Among some of the fast cars with again, not on the lead lap further back. You've got Bobby Hamilton try to bake some brownies working on traffic of his own there. The car of Hermes Sadler works to the inside of him. And you've got John Andretti and Sterling Marlin following that pack. That's from twelfth on back now exiting turn two and they'll go to the outside of the Hervey Sadler. Car accident the second floor back right away. John. Ready dot drives around never Chandler sterling surely trying to move up a little bit, and we'll be able to get around and gain one more position. But as they go down into turns wanted to we've got to change for second place. Dale Jarrett takes it away from Mark Martin. They go to three just drove underneath a minute. Turn of a one and two Mark Martin elected. Not depressed point right now. The second Martin the third then Jeff your field now racing back down the front straightaway. Still good racing going on back in the pack. You've got the machines of Johnny Benson it kid Schrader, just clearing Hermes. Cyber Joe Nemechek comes with them. Then you've got the carve Kevin Harvick following that lane to the outside off turn to Harvick. Trotta wait to see which laid is gonna move home. And it's going to be the outside. Sadler. Going backwards down low. He's at least one left out of fatal. Hope little bit ago, Dale Earnhardt, jR, spun out going off turnover to let's update you on where he is. Now, they made real couple of adjustments on the car didn't damage the car all that bad. But he is in thirty fourth position right now he is a lap down to the rest of the cars that are on the lead lap. Ward Burton is a leader Dale Jarrett. Second Mark March third. Jeff, Gordon is fourth. Kurt Busch is now dropped back to fifth. Kenny wallace. Having a good day. He's up to six Ricky craven, still, very solid. Ricky ran berry strong. The first one hundred laps still does he is seven. Bobby body is eight Mike Wallace's ninth and Ricky Rudd is tenth. Jeff Burton runs in Lebanon. Bobby Hamilton's twelve John ready is thirteenth Sterling Marlin his fourteenth and Kenny Schrader make up the top fifteen. Burton was in pretty good shape. A moment ago leading here in the Old Dominion five hundred. He had a couple of cars between himself and the rest of the field. The rest of the field that time being Mark Martin and Dale Jarrett. The two cars that were trying to chase him down that lap traffic has gone away. Dale Jarrett got around it. And now he's closing in on the leader over intern three Jared has kicked it up. A notch is clear the lap traffic to each closing his exit four some opportunities here. Just a couple of moments because ward Burton the race leader is closing at once again on a heavy pack traffic that may be just what DJ's waiting for. Looking for some opportunities at Brent? I know another left out then the Kevin will page machine. Then they plenty closing off four off the corner back into the straight away. Again comes ward Burton. He's got a car dialed in pretty good. At least at this segment of the race. What's he gonna do? Now is he going to go round the outside? They're going to give him the inside groove. They're off turn to he wants the inside lane and rebelled on four wheel drive underneath he gets under mode. Idoney still got about a car length and a half of her nail era wanted allows Dale Jarrett, the close in even more is DJ goes to work on Brett Bodine works to the inside of him clears himself of that car. Now, there's a Carling separating ward Burton and Dale Jarrett cars are to oppressed in front of a leader on the back straightaway. Chemical pay thanks underneath. Marcus battle settles itself Burton will follow to the of market. Dale Jarrett gets a little bit closer or he did just for a second. They came off the corner. Then he loses the Carleen through. So as they go back to turn over one both cars. Ward Burton the leader. Dale Jarrett riding second taking the inside group as they hit for three Burton's made all the right decisions. So far today. Bypass them. Now, he's got about three Carling Kevin page for Shane Ray. Shaping up for the third position. Mark Martin has that spot. Now, Jeff Gordon has not closed down a lot. But is there within striking distance? He's about a car length and a half off the rear deck of Mark. Martin's Ford and get the failing the Jeff Gordon is just fisheries the competition and saving his racecar. He very methodically. A laugher too makes a Ron and cools the tires and settles in for the next two to cut himself a lot of slack all day long. A couple of times he when he's had to race hard. He's done that other times when he can hold his position not lose any ground. He's just been content to ride along in a safe place. So to speak to make sure he doesn't get caught up in any accidents or Rick's here at martinsville. Three eighteen on the board. Ward Burton leads Dale Jarrett. Second Mark Martin's third. Jeff, Gordon is fourth and Kurt Busch's fifth. Trying to come back up through the pack now is Ricky craven from six Kenny Wallace. Having a great day kitty is seventh Bob the body is eighth and Ricky Rudd been peddling hard back. They're trying to get up in the top five. But rick. Is night. Bobby Hamilton rides tenth and Mike Wallace's eleventh. John Andretti's twelve Jeff Burton's thirteenth fourteenth, Sterling Marlin and fifteenth this Kenny Schrader, the Jay is called ward Burton trying to work on him as they close into the lap car. Kevin the page both having to go down to the inside of the page off turn two or hurt shakedown while Hilton under Kevin levanger least, Paul. Now complete pass into free J. Anyway, he'll take the door wide open and drive through. He's about a half a Carleen back of ward Burton, and this is the scramble for the lead. They've got a little running room down in turnover. One. If if Jarrett decides to go round the outside or the inside they hit the back stretch and hit back to three racetrack ahead for war detail d day run on the back buffer as a Caterpillar or burn the hugging. The yellow stripe trusts Wigan wide off turn four back at the start finish line inches. Separating the first and second place cars here goes Sharon with turnover to one car spinning it's rich Beckel doesn't three sixty knows. I retaining the leaders. Come steaming path that he gets fired and we'll get away in this race will remain under green. Again, we've had all kinds of spins over there off turned over to this time. It's rich Bickel again. But he keeps the car in gets fired and keeps it in the straight line. We're looking to see him. It's damage. He did to it little been in sheet metal as he works his way around the racetrack again with this. Race will remain under green ward Burton will hang onto the lead as Dale Jarrett. Just kind of sits there takes a look at him. Well, change that as they went off the corner down the back stretch. The lead is changed. Dale Jarrett did make the move coming off turn to. Now. He starts trying to pull away from ward Burton. But Dave moody, he's got some traffic just ahead of him as well. He was the chaser a moment ago. But now he's going to have to try to let traffic himself with competition on the back bumper. He'll little Strickland machine did say Mark Martin picked up a little ground while that was going on over there. Overturn number two. He is he works his way back down into turns one and two he's going to look back in the mirror, and here comes Jeff Gordon thought Jeff is just going to put a run on him and drive on by run into some traffic there now has to back down loom bid as he trails Mark Martin over determined three Norton right on his back bumper getting back into the fray Kurt Busch back into it. Bush running film closing it on Gordon. Bushes cleared Kevin the page now closes in on Jeff Gordon, Mark Martin has pulls over let. Gordon drive all by he's done that so many times this year now Bush goes to the outside of Martin off to hurt Bush wants to Saint consideration. And it looks like Mark Mark's going to give it to just holes down waves push. The Mark Martin not happy with his car right now, or at least not willing to fight for physicians not really working that well for him either that or decides, you know, these guys have got a better race car than I do want to let them go because we still got a lot of racing live. We're talking about Dale Jarrett and his Ron how? Well, he's doing here this afternoon. I believe Tony Zuhdi has been down in his pit, Tony. Well, we haven't had a chance to talk to Perry yet. But one person that's hurt him a lot in his radio his stale. Jerry was still saying about the core. Now that you're in the league had said whole lot other than new cars just to take tight all day Gosden making great pitstops of driving the great race. And we've got a good race car. We were really good practice in happy hour and stuff. So you'll really confident about our chances here. Just got to stay out of trouble. Lot of in pit strategies. Key today track positions been being so got a good car. We still have over a hundred fifty laps to run. Can you tell now who might be your main competition today looks like the twenty four awfully strong the twenty eighth of the car? That's really strong had a little bit of trouble there a while ago. I'm not sure what happened, but he's coming back up through the pack, and he'll be tough in that Stott pair Kurci for our leader, Dale tear. It they owe tear great shape right now. Kansas around. He knows smoking three sixty hill punch. The Buxton continue on further damage. So couple of cars spinning out in the last fifteen laps over intern. Number two both cars getting away this time Matt Kenseth and no caution is on the speedway where remained under green Dale Jarrett's, the leader. Back at the martinsville speedway. Dale Jarrett very much in command. He took the lead about ten laps ago when he pulled around ward Burton and now he is some eight or nine car. Links ahead. Write behind Burton comes Jeff, Gordon. Try to chase him down. He's gotten a little closer to him. The last three or four laps around. Let's pick that one up off turn to Kurt Busch has got to be having a ball afternoon. Barney. He's playing my shadow with Jeff Gordon wherever Gordon goes push follows right now, they're handed four battle with Wartburg on the front straightaway. Ward Burton shows the white now by two Carling's over Jeff Gordon to more back to Kurt Busch. That is a cushion of a lapped car in about five Carling's back to Ricky craven. Here's Bush taking a look at Gordon face of Kennedy inside lane didn't quite have enough to stick down low Gorka right down on the yellow line closing on birds. But it got to keep an eye on the rear view mirror. Again, they come off the corner back into the straight away and Kurt Busch made little contact that time with Jeff Gordon. Jeff just pulled way down to the inside of. The racetrack in Kurt Busch drives around the outside their off to north says if you want it that much son go on hold down to the bottom waves in by Kurt Busch moves to the number three spot. Now, he'll head off in search of orchards for the back. Ricky craven wants to get up there and play with these front runners he's in the fifth position. But has lapped traffic to deal with the car? Dave Blaney sits ahead. Here's craven peeling down the inside of turn one you're clear. Dave Blaney by the time. He gets to turn to David Dr. Drives underneath blading. He'll try and catch up with Jeff Gordon Kurt Busch. Not only pass. He's begun the way. Now, he's got to Carling's on it pooled. Nice pulled away a couple of car links on Jeff Gordon is they work their way back in tournament. One looking at Ricky Rudd, he's beginning to move up a little bit. Also, Ricky does have a strong car. And for the moment. Ricky might have just kind of play possum and said, hey, I just wanna stay up in the top seven or eight positions here. Be in the position to do something. He's over in three driven past Kenny. Wallace left him in a rears. Now, he's gonna move around the last car MAG pincer works as white now off the corner back down to the start finish line. Dale Jarrett still show in the way with ward Burton riding along the second spot for the back of the pack. John Andretti just picked up a position as he worked his way round the lap car. Dave Marcus Andretti had a good run going earlier this afternoon, but as been kind of bounced around a little bit he's got some sheet metal damage on the side of the Cheerios dodge, but he's trying to rally back here. At did a good run in the eleventh position right now. Jeff Burton who crashed his primary car in practice on Saturday had to start at the rear the field. He's been up near the front several times today not actually leading the event, but he too is beginning to pour all the steam closing in here in the final one hundred. Fifty six laps Burton now running in the twelfth position. Who's really got his hands full, and I kind of feel for him out there right now is Dale Earnhardt, jR, that car is threatening to spin out on him on both ends the racetrack. Every time he comes off turn number two. And every time he comes off Turner before the rear that car really kicks out and Jim Phillips. If you've got a race car that will not turn here at martinsville. You have got a handful. Let's executive I talked his crew chief Tony Yuri senior right before he spun out said what with him it. He said it's loose. It's tight both. So what do you got a problem? Blood got here at martinsville. You out of the corner, it'd be plowed the brakes that goes up the race track. Then you stand on the throttle. And he's swaying the car around that usually winds up to three sixty. That's what after Dale are Dr junior vanguard not been right sits in succeed metal damage to the rear, but he's just soldiery on a lot of amount there that wish they had a new set of tires right now. Yeah. He's may have some blisters on his hands before the day is through here at martinsville. Because he. Has really been sawing on that steering wheel over in front of Dave moody and a good battle for the second. Dale Jarrett will move underneath Earnhardt, jR. More birthdays, but gathered up like her Bush and Bush wants the number two position is right on his back bumper at the exit turnover birth look into the inside on honored heart junior. He'll find below Mina that'll hold Bush off at least for the moment of in further back here. Ricky run making Ricky craven Ricky Rudd down the inside of Ricky craven. They're battling there for the fifth position that side-by-side coming down the line other changes in the top ten couple of laps ago. So Bobby the body make the move by Kenny Wallace, Bobby the body moves to seventh. Bobby Hamilton got by two he took the eight spot. Kenny Wallace fell tonight and Mark Martin. Now is in the tenth position Ricky Rudd completed the pass Ricky craven that will move him up a position now he's up to the fifth spot craven falls back into the six position. Further back now the race shape and up's going to be between Bobby Hamilton and Bobby Labonte, they race off into turn one pack, maybe their way out of the back of the pack. Now, they're ready to do a little fighting among themselves bombing a bit of a. Me for the outside of a volley in turn do but make that one step. He's running a little bit higher racetrack or would be for seven places. They come off the corner. Hamilton had chased the car little bit that time is it took off toward the wall. With him gets it back under control and still hangs with Bob in the body. Just about a couple of Connex back as they work off turned number two and hit up to three right behind them. Another pretty good pal. Kenny Wallis's failings and beef remark Mark they traded bumper shocks a couple of times racing all over the track right now. Good race. Also from the thirteenth position.

And by the Home Depot, the official home improvement warehouse of NASCAR by Circuit City. We know how you feel. That's why we're here field as lineup about a half lap. Going back of the green fact, let's get an update on Robby Gordon's back in the garage in the garage area here and they've got the right side of this low Chevrolet up in the air working on its damage to the left rear the got problems on the right front in there working on the automobile Robbie sitting in the car right now hoping they're going to get him back out on the speedway. Just a few minutes feel about to get the green and go back to fool song racing scramble off concerned of over one. Ricky Rudd almost got made into a sandwich going down there. Trying to stay with the front three. In fact, he makes contact over there with Kurt Busch author number two keeps it in a straight line. Did a heck of a job and not putting that car on the wall there in three pushed the. Right front. Fender tire for Huron. Kurt Busch is in trouble left for your tire. Plus all the sharpie rubbermaid born at pushes going backward. Everybody storming by Kurt Busch. Ward Burton Bob in the body. Jeff, Gordon, Jeff Burton all down the inside of the track as Kurt Busch. Tries to hang on. Meanwhile, his Bobby Hamilton showing the way Bobby Hamilton with one hundred thirty nine laps. Go is the leader here at martinsville. Second places Ricky Rudd still soldiering on as Dave moody told you that right front. Fender has been in all the tire. What does not appear to be smoking? As of yet third. Now, you've got the car Dale Jarrett. Ricky Rudd is fourth Ricky craven that is is in the fourth spotted fifth. Ward Burton they had to turn three Kurt Busch. Just flavor in around the racetrack. Good not get nearly lost. It Faust it off the wall between three and four the left front left rear. Tyre is gone. This time around him able to fight his way to pit road. The leader. Lear Bobby Hamilton makes his way to the back straightaway. He's got plenty of daylight. Now rolling all by himself. The second place automobile of Ricky Rudd, nearly half a stray away two cars. Now Ricky's got some problems on that car. He was very fortunate that the car didn't sustain a lot of damage because it was pretty hard contact over there in the middle of turns wanted to just a moment ago in that right front sheet. Metal is caved in pretty good there. But Rikki for the moment just trying to hold on a second place. They go back to turn to and Ricky's not gonna be happy to her toy because they got stacked up the agreed Bush went to the outside made it three wide, and then trying to get back into that second lane with we're already there for the moment has gone disaster. Car seems to be okay, he's got a rare view mirror. Full Dale Jarrett as worked the back straightaway and ask they do comes hurt. Book Bush back onto the racetrack. Bush drops down the inside of the track. Now is going to hit the pit lane as a work over into turnover. Three great race few moments ago by Mike Wallace. Jeff Burton they were going side by side closed in on a slower. Car one of the LAPD cars out of the race track. What went to the inside that was Wallace Burton wittily outside Burton got slicker lost two more spots. Wallace was able to advance is now closing on. Jeff, gordon. Let's go to pit road. All right. Kurt Busch broke the sharpie Ford in for service to back live wheel. They polluted knock off Joe in. They're looking up under the car. Apparently, there's some suspension damage that left rear tire went down with Ed got three or four crew member guys down the of the race car. Trying to see what's wrong a lot of smoke coming out there. Checking on the brakes and trying to get that tire back on rubber basically from the tire that exploded has wrapped around the bricks as what the problem is. And they can't seem to get it off really surprised that either Ricky Rudd are Kurt Busch was able to continue after that collision over there. But Kurt Busch on pit road. Ricky Rudd is still on the racetrack one hundred. Well, let's see one hundred thirty two laps remain in the event here the Old Dominion five hundred for Bobby Hamilton. Bobby has almost a half a straightaway on the rest of the field. Rest in the field being Rick. Rudd and Dale Jarrett and Ricky craven and ward Burton that your top five leaders in the backstretch, we've saved for anybody, really. Ongoing battles for position in the top five most Ricky and Dale Jared teammate early second third separated by morning. Born earlier we were talking about when you're the leader the championship points race. It's easy to be intimidated. Because people know you've gotta finish in the race. You've got to be consistent order to win the championship looks like everybody's been picking on Jeff Gordon last couple apps. Why Qualis nearly knocked him sideways as he got by and picked off the seventh position a few laps ago. Jeff Burton has hit him about twice trying to get by them as well. So no respect going to the championship point leader now. Yeah. And he's as said he needs to finish here. Because the next two races will be critical martinsville here today. If you come out of here with a top ten finish he's going to be good shape. And if he can leave Talladega next week, certainly in the top ten he's going to be in pretty good shape. But if you're right, nobody has cut him any slack here this afternoon as Jeff Burton again nudges him a little bit when they come through three and four trying to get a position on him. Bobby Hamilton, Lee tricky road is second Dale Jarrett's third. Ricky Craven's fourth Ricky's great job here today. Ward Burton is fifth Bob into davonte rides six. Mike. Wallace hangs in there. He is seven Jeff Gordon is eight Jeff. Bertans ninth and Mark Martin make up the top ten let's go to the place battle once again. Jeff Gordon trying to hold off. Jeff Burton Burton has thrown everything Adam and the kitchen sink so far as not been able to get by. But he's working again going back to one four. For back bumper like a pay strove at the entrance to just about every corner hill St. Pete to the bottom of the racetrack. Once again on the back straightaway. This time he's got the whole jock birth. Punches a hole that he he'll move under Gordon. Jeff Burton grabbing spot away from Jeff Gordon as racism here in the front straightaway. Goes back into turned over one. And it's been a good day for Jeff Burton. He'd like to have a good finish here this afternoon as he has just gotten around Jeff Gordon for the moment. Now, Gordon looks back in the mirror and Mark Martin and Sterling Marlin will be the next car. Chase him down as we see. Kurt busch. Car rolling down pit road. And we'll go back onto the speedway in the garage area. Robby Gordon out for the day Brett Bodine through for today. Tony Stewart out for the day. Bill Elliott out for the day, and Robert Pressley almost lost. Kevin Harvick they're going off into turnover. One being out for the day as you were listening listening. The folks who have had some problems. He and Elliot Sadler were having a little bit of a frac going into turn number one. Harvick kind of came down on Sadler. When I went into the corner. Santer does not him sideways. It was a. Great safe by Kevin Harvick to hang on to the car. And he's got some damage on the left side of that GM Goodrich machine. So coupes could save by him. He's now showed the twenty-six position. It is turning out to be a pretty good day. So far for Ricky Rudd. He's now running at the second spot with Jeff Gordon running in ninety two points at this time two hundred ten and the lead coming into this race of the championship battles to thirty seven. So if it stays like this gets any better Ricky Rudd stands to gain somewhat on his chase of Jeff Gordon sitting other yesterday during the reign, and we're doing a little paperwork on the points championship and Ricky Rudd would have to gain about thirty nine points per race. Just to catch Jeff Gordon who have to average that to get back up there and catch him as the season winds down. So he's certainly got his work cut out for him here this afternoon and the races that remain Bobby Hamilton, Ricky Rudd, Dale chair, Ricky craven ward Burton your top five Dale Earnhardt, jR, spending a moment to go up and turn number four. Put us under caution for the eleventh time this afternoon in a very few cars on. On pit road. Let's go down to Tony resuting. John Andretti came to four sticker tires. Kevin Harvick also need to go on right side tires as well as Matt kids right side tires. Probably Jordan went to the garage. Just a moment ago. Let's get a quick word from him Ravi sitting here in the low Chevrolet what happened out there, buddy. I trying to get past Benson. We run around on lead lap. You know, guys did really good in the pitstop had a has up their ways, and I got underneath Bentson Gallo bit loose. And you know, he just didn't give me enough room. I'm not blaming on him. Just trying to get by them and got sideways Robby, Gordon, sits in the low Chevrolet opened to get back out, but shot Jones got a bit of damage when Dale Earnhardt, jR, crashed over and turn three when he spun out there. Also, Bobby Labonte got a good bit of damage the right rear of his is completely pushed in that car. And he's now running in the six position. So this could cause some problems for the defending NASCAR Winston Cup champion. We've had sixteen changes among twelve drivers. So far today. Eleven caution flags have waves so far. Are we have one hundred fifteen laps still to go? Bobby Hamilton is the race leader under caution. Ricky Rudd is second Dale Jarrett. Third Ricky craven fourth ward Burton is fifth. Sixth is Bobby the body seventh this Mike Wallace eight Jeff Burton, ninth is Jeff Gordon at tenth this, Mark. Martin Sterling Marlin runs eleventh twelfth as Joe Nemechek thirteenth is Kenny Schrader fourteenth is rusty Wallace. Fifteenth this Kenny Wallace running in sixteenth now.

Bobby Hamilton, Ricky Rudd Dale Jarrett, Ricky craven award burden. That's the top five little stack up on the go. When they came out of the corner down to the inside lane lap cars tap each other. Bobby Hamilton gets gone. He gets a lap car between himself and Ricky Rudd is it go off turn to dust up between the lap cars was just Bobby Hamilton had in mind and allows him to break away by five maybe six Carla. Huckster equipment Liam silver hero. Here's Ricky craven going to the outside trying to catch up now with Dale Jarrett. That would be the race for the third position. Forced to fall back in line as race into turnover. One Bobby Hamilton's lead over Ricky Rudd his four Carling's off today. Come looking down on the side of The Hunchback when machine Nope alongside overtake him on breaking tournament three but clear racetrack as he sets out in pursuit of the leader. Talked a lot about Ricky today as far as being up in the front of the field in contention to win although he's been around the top ten most of the afternoon. Now, he's got quite a bit of sheet metal damage to the right front of that car as this time. The go off turned over to seems to be affecting the handling of it just a little bit there over three a whole lot worse for because at first after with Kurt Busch was rubbing tire, but it worked himself free, Scott rubbing anymore. If Ricky Dr struggling right now, he's overcoming it. Pretty well because he has closed again on on the Hamilton tightening up. Even more is race back down the back straightaway. This race for the lead shaving up here and lamp three Ninety-one. Bobby Hamilton drifts a little bit wide alternative four allows Ricky Rudd to close in even more Dale Jarrett who runs third is about three Carling's behind this battle for the lead cycle file a moment. Turnover to Bobby Hamilton Carlex offer, he read two more back to Dale parents at five or six factor. Raymond, and I got to give. A call to my pillow to winkle there. There are many cars out here without a Mark on it. But they were down one of the well the day his young Jeff Gordon gets tapped a little bit coming off turn number four up. There kept the car in a straight line. But almost boxed up everybody for the moment in that may Lee or getting hit up there and getting kicked sideways, Sterling Marlin was able to get underneath him is that whole pack. Traffic goes back up to turn three. Of traffic on the lack proper Joe Nemechek as their Kenny Schrader Kenny Wallace there, and they're all gonna thinking vantage point lead. And no one is cutting. Jeff, Gordon any slack at all he's rotting along in the eleventh position right now struggling to get by Sterling Marlin. And now he bumps Marlin off turn to triggers turnabout is fair play. But it doesn't get it. The spots. Barlett in fact holds away a couple of garlic and down to him attack on the attack. Let's take you back through the top twenty real quick. It's Bobby Hamilton leading Ricky Rudd is second Dail chairs third Ricky craven fourth ward Burton v. Bob in the body. Six. Seventh is Jeff Burton? Mark Barton's eighth. Mike Wallace's ninth and surly Marlin tin rookie rod his off the pace Barney smoke from the Texaco hamlets Ford. He ran slowly on the back straightaway. Now, he's being overhauled by mail tariff. Man, that's the last thing in the world. Ricky Rudd needs is a motor problem or anything else is going to send him to garage that looks like it's coming out of the hitter pipes. I wouldn't swear to it. But again, we see a lot of smoke at a Ricky Rudd's car picking up again at turn three looks like. Motive problem. Barney and his puffing smoke out of the left hand, header banks and may not last much longer for road. Ricky Rudd falls to third to fourth down to fifth. Ward Burton drives by continues to slow and smoke continues to pour the back the Texaco have the machine. Tough break. Ricky Rudd who kinda minded his own business and stayed in the back of the pack for most of the day betas moved to the front was closing in on Bobby Hamilton. But Sunday smoke begins the port heavy and heavier now from the Texaco have the machine he comes down to line sees the black flag being displayed and you'll try to let back around and make it to the pit lane. Those enough out of that car that time is much question. At the engine is gone. It's cooked down here. Marksville a lot of times at this racetrack. You wouldn't think that short-track would be hard on Motors. It is harder on an engine at attract like martinsville than any place. We go and Ricky Rudd makes the turn into the garage area out of the back straightaway. So it's going to be a short day and long day in in at the same time for Ricky Rudd who was in the chase. For the Winston Cup championship. So Bobby Hamilton continues to lead Dale Jarrett. His second Ricky craven third Wartburg fourth and fifth is Bobby the body. Let's pause ten seconds for station. Identification won't have our radio the voice of NASCAR. Martin radio live at the martinsville speedway in Virginia bringing you the Old Dominion five hundred thirtieth race of the two thousand one season along with Barney hall. I'm Joe more.

Bobby Hamilton having a great day here at martinsville on a Monday afternoon and the Old Dominion five hundred Dale Jarrett rights, second, Ricky craven still very strong racecar Ricky's third ward Burton's seven super day. He's fourth and Bobby the body despite the fact that he has what a bit of sheet metal damage that car rides in fifth place. Ricky Rudd is in the NASCAR Winston Cup garage falling out after getting I a little bump and bang on the race track. And then apparently an engine problem is we saw smoke pouring out of the back of Texaco hamlet four. We were just talking about the fact that it would be so easy for them to gain ground on championship point leader. Jeff, Gordon, if things went right as a matter of fact, he had picked up some ground because scored that fell back in the back of good ways that was getting beaten banged their little while and Ricky starting to close in it starting to battle for the lead with Bobby Hamilton. Then it all went away. He's in the garage. Kevin O'Neill is worth it. Ricky would happen to the race car. Well, not really sure something something let go into motor y'all man. A good race car things. Really this text. Al with really good earlier in the race. We got up with scattered regular schedule bits, let with believe or not in Hong third year year had to come back into work on it oughta way all the way from the back in got back up and ready to go there kind of challenge for the wind and all said motoric seem like you guys. Get a break in his points race, Gordon was kind of slipping and you were headed to the front and then this. It's not a whole lot. We know about it to notice guys get great Motors every week. And James Mikko on us, Laura. Ricky Rudd out of today's race due to an engine failure. He's in the garage. Yeah. Ricky the latest to go to the garage. Tony Stewart Bill Eliot, Robert Pressley, the other cars that are out of the event for the moment. Well for the leader Bobby Hamilton, he's going to have his hands full right now. He's caught the tail end of the field after that round of pitstops, and he's going to have to get around about a maybe eight ten or twelve cars, he tackles, the first one is he goes over to turn to the first man in line at Hamilton will other. Other Donald Lizzy laugh traffic today with his lead down to about three Carlos over nail Barrett. And Jared has company prefer deeper Ricky craven radical rear deck of Dale Jarrett coming through traffic, they spread it out a little bit. Once they hit the straightaway. But they're closing heavy pack of about eight cars. Several Witcher racing side by side. Just ahead. I'll turn to. In the middle of check that. That's the Hermes Sadler machine. He's being overhauled by her sports, tailored heart junior. We'll go to the inside of him slobby Hamilton just has to wait and see which launched gonna move Bobby Hamilton has to make the right choice right now. Because Dale Jarrett is close enough if he boxes himself in behind a slower car and takes the high line or the low line, and they turn out to be the wrong choice. He could lose the lead. They go back to turn three handle. It's going to take the low lane. He's gonna go Dale Earnhardt, jR, Earnhardt drives underneath Robby, Gordon machines. Jared now is right there with his back bumper Jarrett. What goes way down to the inside of the track getting by Robby, Gordon further back, Ricky craven now closes in Robby, Gordon, Gordon polls over gives him plenty of racing room grave. It is able to join the front to the back stretch the front free cars talian and racing through the lap. Traffic Hamilton look high on Earnhardt, jR, nothing there. He'll try the lowly Bobby Hamilton decides Dr underneath dealer heart junior makes it work because he gets underneath them. It goes back into turn one Dale Jarrett says while the doors. Open. I better take advantage of this to go off turn two and here come Ricky craven, hustling for the bottom product a whole, but he's not gonna be able to do it Earnhardt back to the low line. But now he pulls once per even goes craven works his way to the low side of Dale Earnhardt, jR, clears that car further back other cars that are still in the lead lap running in the top five or ten you got ward Burton riding along in the fourth position. Bobby Labonte in fifth again with of all the damage on the right rear of his car. Jeff Burton and Mark Martin or just behind the bunny off the turn to her at March single file race right now Sterling Marlin getting busies working back bumper for all the Mike Wallis machine about three Carling's further back certainly looked like you wanted to put a run on Mike Wallace. And maybe take that spot away as it came off turn to couldn't quite get. Fender underneath him. Let's pick that one up again factors. Good four-car scramble right there off turn to sterling Ted ton of afternoon, but he'd get with the program. Here's the last one down Mark mar wants a piece of Jeff Burton, and he's gonna try. On the outside. And try the low side off turn to off turn four. He will go up high and see if it'll work there appears to be working very well for him. He flashes by Jeff Burton his teammate grabs the spot. Momentarily. Burton tries to come back, though side not going to happen. Low for drives around him Hooper back right behind them. Sterling Marlin continues to work away on the back bumper Cernan's had a pretty good race car here this afternoon just has not had good track position all day long as laps Winedown. Just seventy nine remained the Old Dominion five hundred Bobby Hamilton continues to lead in heavy traffic overturned three Hamilton has stuck to hurry. Sad. Wherever she got rookie. Freedman as Hitler start finish line Hamilton Dow flows in on rich fickle, who's not a good afternoon in the Morgan McClure Kodak Chevrolet Nichols. Would like he might have wait for a moment. But now he's back in the Toronto and Hamilton shadowed into her number three Bobby Hamilton looking for a way by the Kodak or better believe Dale Jarrett is sitting behind him just waiting to see which way he will go, and what kind of opportunities may be opened up for him. Let's go to pit road with talk about Bobby. Hamilton won second tilt the difference in this finish could be this left. Three fifty four healed took two tires. They oh dairy Ricky craven. The other guys took four tires. Gotta span off turnover. Four Michael Waltrip loop the car around didn't appear to make any contact with anybody else. He gets it fired goes on round and caution does not come out this time. So we've had a rashes spans were able to get the car fired very quickly and continue away. But Michael Waltrip not been a good day for him at all your at margin. Yeah, he's been beaten banged a good bit maintain a spot of the top twenty. Most of the day. But things started to go kind of poorly for him at the stage of the race. Jim Phillips talking about the tire difference with Bobby Hamilton. And with Dale Jarrett. One about for everybody else for fuel for tires. Jim can everybody go the rest of the way at this point? Everybody is good. I'll fuel Joe this the difference. These tires could make the difference though, down the the race you're working lapped traffic, Dale they'll Jared caught Bobby Hamilton till everybody thought the car was to come out that have to jump back out in front of a little bit. And also reported out earlier who said that build up that railroad the outside line which is taking away about a half of approve of passing lane here at the martinsville speedway track. Getting kind of slippery out there. The groove getting more narrow as we wind down into final laps just seventy four related to the Old Dominion five hundred Jeff Gordon picked up another spot. Just a moment ago. He got around Mike Wallace that has moved up into ninth position. Bobby Hamilton, breathing a little sigh of relief. He's got some breathing room. For the moment is elapsed wind down just sixty six to go here at martinsville. He has an advantage of about six tenths of a second, which doesn't translate too much real estate. Dave moody as wing overturn three maybe fifty feet shrinking rapidly Barney because he's on the outside of Jimmy Spencer, Spencer down Kenya's, you might expect is not going quietly. He's giving Hamilton a whale of a run and Dale Harris close within five Carling's. Now that is allowing Jared to close in even more right up on the back deck of the Jimmy Spencer car Spitzer keeps Hamilton boxed. Alan the outside lane vide now looks high but he made to the inside. Here comes the challenge for the latest the last car, David beside the lead on the front trail. Jared had thoughts of maybe making it three wide coming out of the corner with Spencer at the bottom of the racetracks. Nope. I better just stay foot off the bumper of the leader right now. And that's exactly what he does is they hit for three Hamilton working hard in that outside lane finally overhaul. Timmy. Fencer knowledge of Dale Jarrett to get the job done fencer, russillo. A high bounces off DJ at four hambleton finally gets away from Jimmy Spencer. Now, it's DJ having the deal with Spencer going off into turn number one rubs sheet. Metal gets right up against him in here cubs. Ricky craven VJ who tried to take advantage of the body Hamilton and his trip around Spencer? Now has the tables turn it's craven on the attack DJ drunk sitting behind Spencer said enough of that I land guarantee, Jimmy Spencer. This lost a couple of drafting partners potential drafting partners at Talladega next week when he might need a little help out there scrambled. Now still going on Dale Jarrett trying to get around Jimmy Spencer this time on the outside. And that's just to stay up with the leader. Bobby Hamilton and Spencer Spencer takeaway, Bobby Hamilton lost the lead, Jimmy fencer. Now, he's getting it back. He's back on top ten Tarlac big goes to the outside. AJ haven't hard time. Getting by the car of Jimmy Spencer is Teri the bonds even have a harder time. He was running the top twenty. Now he pulls down onto pit. Lane here at sixty one laps to go DJ clears lap car Jimmy Spencer. Now, Ricky craven goes to the outside of Spencer's machine. Spencer not on the lead lap. We haven't talked a whole lot about him today. It hasn't been a real good day for Jimmy here at the martinsville speedway. He shown now back in about the thirtieth position or ship. So twenty four twenty four th at this stage of the race. But for Bobby Hamilton got a little bit of breathing room. There Dale Jarrett was closing in because of the lap traffic. They were catching right now. He stretched out his lead to about three or four Carling's gets a little breathing room. But here comes DJ and here comes Ricky craven. Now finally getting by Jimmy Spencer, intern one for. Outside on Spencer off seed, how that goes he drives over exited turn four holes alongside blows play the free. Now craven the third-place automobile will try chase down Dale tear it again. So with fifty eight laps remaining here at martinsville. It appears that everybody if the need to construct the fuel go the distance, no problem. There's just a matter of who is the best on the long runs at the moment. Three cars getting away from everybody else. Bobby Hamilton, Dale Jarrett and Ricky craven ward Burton is fourth. He's peddling hard back there. And he's got a lot of lap traffic to get around. He's got to get around Jason Leffler, Robby, Gordon, and Michael Waltrip and Casey Atwood's car just to get up there and even getting close to third place. Ricky craven, the lead pack goes over to turned over to his down to three Bobby Hamilton out closing and to put a lap on the Elliott Sadler. Machine sadler. Who left us race awhile ago now in danger of going down he hugs the bottom Hamilton to Taylor? A couple of names. We usually talk a lot about here at martinsville. We haven't spoke much of. In the last few laps like, Jeff Gordon has one here. Three times he soldiering along back in the seventh position Mark Martin who led earlier today a two-time martinsville. He's in the eight spot talked about Jeff Burton and Mike Wallace. They have led for a while today. Burqas down ninth. Mike Wallace's tent, and Jeff Gordon, I guess it's a biggest surprise as kind of hanging back there. The seventh position HOA got trouble over and turned over to big cloud of smoke over. There can't really see the cars as they've slammed into the wall as they back their way out over there. Joe Nemechek appears to be in it the smoke will clear over there. Jerry day do had a piece of that. Also and also kidney Wallis gets a chunk of it. They're all able to continue but caution is on the speedway here. And for what the twelfth time. We'll be the twelfth caution here the afternoon at four forty five with again three cars involved in a couple of those were running quite well Naidu hidden lapped himself. Kenny Wallace has been of the top ten most of the day. Joe Nemechek at a pretty good day all three able to continue. But they do bring out the caution here for the again. Twelve time here this afternoon question. Now Barney is what will these guys do with an opportunity to come down the pit lane. We have fifty four laps to go with established. The fact they could stay out it appears they are going to take the opportunity to come down the pit lane and make what could be the final stops of this day. Here's Bobby Hamilton coming down Dale Jarrett. Ricky craven behind him or Burt Jerry Neetu, Bobby the Bonnie practically all the leaders making their way down into the pit stalls for a very decisive. Stop that could determine the winner of this race. That's go down and pick up the first of the stops. Is Dale Jarrett comes in to pit lane. Brought to you by McDonald's.

He's trying to make his move out of the inside of turn one Jimmy Spencer to lap car in the Knicks on the outside trying to pass the ball to highlight. Its Benson running second Spencer Roger around him back. Good idea. He knows the highway for second takes around the outside. Jimmy Spencer determined to get himself back on the tail end of lead lap. And if they get another caution, maybe have a shot to win this thing. But Kevin Harvick is leader. He's got Jimmy Spencer between him and second and third place in the back stretch. The battle is for second. It's Johnny Benton on the inside in the Pontiac on the outside of a Chevrolet, then Bobby Hamilton and Ricky craven Benson sideways. Parbat rather cats dives underneath yet. Vincent tried to get by Matt Kenseth slid sideways because he drove it so deep into turn over one now. Upfront Jimmy Spitzer trying to get his lap back from Kevin Harvick Harvick wants to hold him off. But he's not going to jeopardize the lead to new Spencer. Got the whole John Harvard hung out to dry white behind them side by side Ken to the leave. Harvick might be a head to let Jimmy Spencer go because he's going to be a thorn in his side right down to the wire. If it stays like this Spencer down to the inside and Jimmy just trying to get back on the tail end of the lead lap. Kevin Harvick is trying to keep him a lap down. And also. Retain the lead. That's scramble still for second place. A good one and turn three finally Kevin harvick's says yo on him. I'll let you have. That's fun. He drops below vine. Johnny bench's of wins.

Or for the hill has to show. It's Kevin Harvick. Johnny benson. Bobby Hamilton, Ricky craven bird with forty one laps to go. Kevin Harvick did not come into make stop. Now. There's a problem for Matt Kenseth who also stayed out. He is wealth. The pace. Everybody storms by Matt Kenseth. The leader's head to turn three Kevin Harvick with three Carla Pontiac. Johnny Benson Benson with the rear view mirror. Full of Bobby Hamilton decree, then coasting down the back straight away. Now is Matt Kenseth. He'll be hitting two pit row. Let's check in quickly with Jim Phillips. Jim got Bobby Hamilton with JBL jug took two tires the last two times. We'll ask him. Why talking to Bobby right now we took to tie you took two tires to tugs roll wide. Jimmy. Well, I mean we were taking four earlier and race and everybody was taken to or staying out and stuff. So, you know, track this just been so important today. We just did elected to do that. I mean we want to win this race. And we felt like that was the only way we're going to because we took more too far back in the back truck position the key. That's the reason that took to the stuff. He's the good position right now. He's trying to challenge. Johnny Benson to take second place away. And he's got the spot coming off the corner gets the inside ru that may be the way to get up there and second place as a lapse wind down here at martinsville. That race for second. Bobby Hamilton to the inside Johnny Benson to the outside their off to Hamilton has that low line fence fighting high card in the outside lane. Hamilton hit the advantage in a free. Dow pointing to hold down low here comforting here comes Johnny Benson again, slipping and sliding off turn four craven sees the opening takes advantage cashes in he pulls to the inside and grabs the third spot. Benton trying to slam the door now on Wartburg whole Tim off at least for the moment. Steak dance down the straightaway. Johnny Benson flam or face award Burke, but he sweats high again at four scooted up out of the groove. And that's all it takes Benson may lose another spot. Ward Burton dives underneath this time going down to turn one to two. And if you can't keep that car to the low part of the racetrack. You're gonna lose some ground Dale Jarrett baba the body may also get around Benson. They hid for three gone events. And right now like a highest fan on hold the bottom lane. Dale, Jared drives out of eight. Father Lombardi cute up right behind hill. Water thirty five laps to go for Kevin Harvick years three-car links of a lead over Bobby Hamilton. But Hamilton and Ricky craven are closing in quickly without a lap practice. Kevin Harvick in a position to try and win this thing. But Hamilton on. Are they have called off the battle between themselves. They are just reeling in the leader. Now. Now they've got to chase him down because times becoming the factor now thirty four lapses all that remain the Old Dominion five hundred here at martinsville. They go back over to turn over to. Kevin Harvick has an advantage one Carling and shrinking as a hip Banak strength away, Hamilton and Dale. Here's a side by side battle for fourth Dale Jarrett to the outside trying to drive around and don't do it. Ward Burton a tough customer to deal with. But they'll charities able to get by him. He picks off the position. Kevin Harvick looks back. Bobby Hamilton is there once again right upon his buffer. Brought three now free training does detail inches apart on the back straightaway. Harvard Bobby Hamilton, Ricky craven looking to the inside nothing there. They stay single file here in the front straightaway. And that's the way they'll race down toward Turner. But one told you a moment ago Matt Kenseth went to the garage. Let's see if we can get a quirk from him. Well, man has gone into change at the hauler, but we got coochie from riser here. What happened to the car? We brought ruin gear broken front and a drive shaft offer something I mean, it's all busted up there. You can't really tell what's wrong right now. We'll throw together we had this here at the hand thought we'd have been okay. But when those deals that's crew chief Robbie Reiser. The chief for MacIntosh took a gamble. It. Just didn't quite pay off for them. Let's get back to the front of the field. Kevin Harvick is a leader. He's got a. Carling between himself second and third place cars and fourth and fifth place cars right behind him at turn three three car battle about to become four. Maybe five Ricky craven right now is hot dry. He is working hard on the back bumper Bobby Hamilton at a wheel inside of a laugh ago, but couldn't make it stick. He's looking low again coming off a second corner at this race run yesterday schedule. It would not be Kevin Harvick behind the wheel. Rick mast qualified the on Friday barbeque was supposed to drive in the SAM's town two fifty at Memphis motorsports park and did although the race was delayed till yesterday. So he was able to make it here today since this race was postponed from Sunday Harvick now shows the way Bobby Hamilton is second Ricky craven third Dale Jarrett fourth ward Burton is fifth with twenty eight laps to go. Man, we are under caution at a three wide pass for the lead all going over into terms three and four Dave moody, you had an eyeball on that one. Kevin Harvick gone sideways. Just a bit. Barney coming off to may have had some help from behind for Bobby Hamilton may not he stacked up Hamilton tried to go underneath him Ricky craven with a full head of steam went under both of them. They got the turn three three wide. And and it really broke loose. Bobby Hamilton, spun the square D Chevrolet around loop. The car did a free sixty kept right ongoing. Lost a number of spots. But Ricky craven has come away with the league Barney. Kevin Harvick it's going to get a one lap penalty for that infraction up there. So that is going to cost him an opportunity to win this race just moments ago. He was close to possibly picking up the victory. And now it's going to be backed down a full lap for Kevin Harvick who is shown in the third spot. But Ricky craven Scott have a big smile on his face with twenty-five to go as we work out of the caution flag. He leads the Old Dominion five hundred from the martinsville speedway. This is our in radio. The field gets the one to go signal before we get back to the green flag waving that offer it so at least another lap before we get back onto the green flag. There's too much happening. All of a sudden, we've cut await let's go to Kevin O'Neill here in the giving Harvey bid in the Winston Cup officials. Hold him in the pit area here for eleven penalty, Richard. What do they say Richard children's? I don't know. It's just nascar's call. I don't know. They're just in a different world. Obviously, not happy at all. Kevin Harvick burns rubbers. He has out a pit road and goes back out on the track with the penalty. From NASCAR does stand. You what that's best short trek? Racy some of the best racing period. Joe awfully long long time. The last one hundred laps here. Wow. That I think Dave ODI made the comment during a commercial break. This is going to be good.
