Are -- -- it's official there change in the name of Martinsville Speedway. To Jacksonville. Imagine that. Jimmy Johnson wins another race at Martinsville that's become become a habit for -- shortly for the competition. And I gotta tell you. I would that you're the man plugged nickel for win that race when it started Sunday yeah. He would chase announced Chad in diesel toolbox or whether or not that you are back he must have a magic laundered somewhere. He must get a car beauty -- that a couple of those pit stops. And magically fix it. Because that's -- went from not really car in my opinion it was capable when in the race to be in the NASCAR feel about halfway through. A lot of -- Again check created. -- follows what Larry and I you. Talked about -- kind of opened -- that is earlier this year about trillions what you can expect to happen here and race. And instead -- a really good job of taking history dynasty years or race at Martinsville. And and and getting those -- when caught undergo fall how long green flag runs of me. And so -- and so or. It's there's joblessness and Iannetta and using it to his advantage. So the -- and sunny -- a little bit different because. With limited amount of practice no testing. Indians start to race. Little further back in their custody at the start Jimmie Johnson started ninth. More traffic to work normally like New Hampshire wasn't real sure about what -- -- it'd be an excellent perfect one. Or random lap down fill out gave them a lot of room to operate almost. But he won't even playing with with a 44 car had a first -- out and that's always a huge advantage. At Martinsville or any extra early but really a mark that because we're a little pit road has made. With the -- -- turns into it's it's one more difficult it yet in and out so. It's actually she's 24 had the advantage but at 24 is a great job of of equalizing bucket and really it himself so. The race unfolds anything it looks like everybody would have given that race but force started -- 24 car Gordon started on -- again. It's pit selection. In what you practice this car also like it always does and it's. Pretty much said okay this is this is the 24 car right the lose in his start at all that way but as time went on here comes eleven car and Hamlin. Hamlin is -- any -- into the race. And and I am I think it's a -- -- we saw why Ian -- -- -- have a really good setup for that price and so he became the dominant car led the most laps. And look like he was the man movie. And tell. All the sudden it got down near the into the race and here comes up 48 car and I got -- -- I've got an eleventh hour. If I got another car and other in my mirror and ask Jimmy Johnson comment -- him brawl. We got trouble Houston and sure enough. They go at it and in depth Jimmie Johnson in moving eleven car out of white. That's where -- just a little bit aren't if I had my soapbox right now I'd be standing opponent. Because this is where in my opinion the sport changed dramatically. Okay it's a short track and I'm not going -- on Jimmie Johnson did exactly what he did he moved eleven out twice a week -- race. Where my problem is is when the race is no -- it hurts you -- -- Jimmie Johnson sponsors that watcher Barack. I'm sure that we're thinkin' it to eleven was -- going to be happy Denny Hamlin was probably yet. Junior shot her or at least they know how that is. Easy what with what happened. It happened. Are back I don't think I don't think I've ever seen anybody it has gotten knocked out of a win. Be any more calm and cool and complacent about it in any Hamlin was. Got a doctor today. And it happened manned space and that's old school racing I think about you know people complain about. Kyle Busch. I let -- in motion outlook that fire I want to see you gotta have all this ain't always helmet in his arms and vice in the car and be upset that you lost. -- holding my a couple of itself. Not only has -- wanted to throw anybody under the bus but I'll bet -- motion. In particular short tracks I mean we're All-Star is on the short track when you start being in -- and only each other. Sometimes you control your emotions and you lose your temper. And -- It is short Bristol was. -- gets a lot of guys are very upset and bush was absolutely livid over his radio Jeff Gordon. Jeff Gordon's does that mean you know not. That's the emotion ala and that's emotional like to see when race is no way. At Hamlin and all over and confronted a Jimmie Johnson I don't think Jimmy would have been surprised and I don't think of an outline. I can't had a right -- Jimmie Johnson was very horrible have been happier about it. But I like to see your hours -- the other drivers on the big Chiefs on -- you next thing you know push me around like that. That's what made great great that's old school race and that's what we used to do it -- ball Dale Earnhardt. Just -- thoughts in his I would let no one minute. You know our our our corporate credit -- Richard -- That's kind of emotion short -- most of right now and that's something -- -- really was and unhappy about -- it was nobody likes it might blow themselves. But I -- like to see that short track emotion. -- showed it beaten buying short tracks short for. Yes that was supposedly. We're going to Texas now -- hammer down I asked me about the fast track on the circuit these days you gotta be kinda neat -- -- needed. It Texas is that since. You gotta give actor goes you're going to be climate that joint. While cloud over 190 miles an article often turn. One in -- Mercury hit well over 202 -- -- just remember about today -- I figured out there on his while I'm on what happened you know. That shows -- how faster going and how violent -- can be anything go wrong so we're going from the little -- the slowest track on the circuit. -- and it's the fastest track on certain. It should be exciting should be fine I think it you know Kyle Busch -- media. Randy or Kurt Busch and started what you ran it. Atlanta the -- got it. -- have a real real good run Sunday. But -- 48 or nine now it's tough for the grass which you back on their game against struggling. Confident get back on their game all the lately and it's on at Martinsville or people that needed to and -- and now we're going to a place where some the other guys have been successful. The -- guys in and certainly the eighteenth or anything like this it. Kurt Busch that was see what happens in Texas so I know I'd Stanton knows that it just -- him.
