Tony Finished: 20th

I was excited for Martinsville- it’s a favorite track for me to watch on television. I like watching tight quarters racing. It’s what NASCAR racing is to me- rubbing, contact, flared tempers and cars that look like they have been through a 500 miles race. So I always get excited when it comes time for Martinsville. Always.
It was looking like it was going to be a pretty darn good race for us Stewart fans as well. Tony qualified the car 6th! That in itself was exciting to me. Whoo! Martinsville is so small that it is easy to get a lap down if you are too far in the back of the field. So with my fingers crossed for a decent showing at Martinsville I sat down on Sunday and watched 43 drivers take the green flag.
