Solid short track race at Martinsville

As for Martinsville, sometimes, your right as I correctly predicted Brad Keselowski to win on Sunday. It was just a matter of time before he won there. Placing runner-up twice in the last four attempts, it was just meant to be.

Keselowski and Kyle Busch both duked it out, but it was Keselowski who had the better set of tires to pull away at the end. It was a great short track race. A ton of carnage and a number of things going on throughout. Those two battling for the lead in the last 150 laps was priceless though. Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon and even a comeback by Joey Logano proved to be solid runs. Now, just when is Logano going to win. By driver's introductions, it looks like nobody in the stands wants to see it.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. even looked as competitive as ever and for awhile, it seemed to be an easy top five finish. A speeding penalty and a wreck negated that.

Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson may have been the surprises. Johnson was not as stout as normal, but Hamlin was nowhere even close, despite predicting to win this race some time ago.

Finally, I want to thank my family and friends for everything they mean to me. Happy Easter to all.
