Martinsville "News" and Notes
Kevin "Bono" Manion was caught on air last week cursing after his driver, Martin Truex Jr., wrecked. No word on whether or not Dale "The Edge" Earnhardt Jr. was involved.
Speed reporter Steve Byrnes is out this week with an eye infection, currently being treated by his doctor, Jerry Petty. How many Petty's are there? Or is that Petties?
Crewchief Butch Hylton, formerly of FitzBradshaw racing, has resigned his position. Yes, this is the 14th time this has happened--one more, and Armando gets free accounting services for a whole month!
Sadly, a driver named Cale Gale has been discovered. Cale Gale--apparently "Chase Race" was already taken.
Surprisingly, ratings for Bristol were down from last year. Guess that Full House marathon on TV Land took its toll (I mean, who CAN resist John Stamos?)
1:2 An announcer will refer to Martinsville as "two drag strips connected by two hairpin turns".
4:1 Mike Skinner will skip the race.
100:1 Anyone will care that Mike Skinner will skip the race.
