In Reply to: My thoughts on Martinsville by Harry on September 26, 2017 at 3:11am

Harry, I'd like to add my thoughts to your fine comments.   I missed seeing you and rob.   rob told me that he did see you.   I was in section AA about to the height where the old main grandstand would have been.   I thought the race was too long, having been in or near my seat from 3:30 Sat. afternoon till midnight.   I hope they will look at some qualifying for maybe 10 or 15 spots on Friday, or maybe group qualifying which would require only two heats to finish up the field.   Maybe have the last chance and main event on race day.   I actually like it better on Sunday afternoon, and have the qualifying on Saturday afternoon, or Sat. night.   Also thought that all the crashes took away from the event.   There was one stretch in the main event where they ran a good many laps under green, but then again, they were biding their time to make a run at the end.   The best racing took place in the last 25 or so laps I thought.   At one point all the crashes make it seem like a demolition derby.   With that much money on the line maybe the drivers just took chances they wouldn't normally take.   Being at Martinsville brought back a lot of memories from the Cardinal and Dogwood 500 days.   Also memories of the Darrel Waltrip/Earnhardt Sr. rivalry and the Bobby Allison/Richard Petty rivalry ran through my mind a few times.   Martinsville is a special place for me because I was a lot younger and the excitement for a young guy being at Martinsville is hard to describe.   All in all it was a good time.   I would really hope they will look at figuring out how to get the race run in no more than 5 hours.   Are you going to the race at ACE in October?   Maybe I can catch you there, that is if they have enough cars to run it after last weekend.   Take care buddy.
