I made my first trip to Martinsville and had a blast. Stayed up near Roanoke, and it took me an hour & half to get to the track and parked. I didn't hang out after the checkers, headed to the car and by 6 was rolling. Can't wait to go back next year.
I wouldn't want to be a host on 128 come Monday morning...regardless of the outcome of Sunday's race:
If Hamlin wins, the Toyota-haters will jam the lines
If Johnson wins, the Jimmie-bashers will be out in full force.
If Harvick wins, those folks who can't give it up will be calling about...
I don't understand why so many of the 128 listeners feel so sorry for Childress. I don't recall such an outpouring when the 2-4-8 cars failed inspection due to body massaging at Sonoma a couple years ago.
I'm "hoping" to get to North Carolina over Labor Day weekend. If I can get the work schedules arranged, drive out there on Thursday, spend Friday touring a few race shops, Saturday at the HOF the back to Indiana on Sunday.
I have long thought that Eli himself is overexposed. His voice has such a high and mighty tone to it, I can't bear to listen to him as a broadcaster. However, I do enjoy it when he gets together with Bagley on TMD and they just tell stories on one another.
