Ten quotes drivers might use to describe Martinsville

By admin | October 26, 2013

 The paper clip shaped Martinsville Speedway.

By Richard Allen

A few years ago, Matt Kenseth really did say that, “Driving at Martinsville is like racing around to light poles in the WalMart parking lot.” So with that in mind, here are some made up quotes drivers might want to use about the half-mile track in Virginia.

 1. “Man, I just can’t get a brake at this place.”

2. “For some reason, after I race here I feel the urge to go out and buy a box of 500 paper clips.”

3. “Hot dog! I love coming to this place.”

4.  “I’ve never been so tired of looking the Lowe’s logo on the back of Jimmie’s car.”

5. “My chances to win this race got curbed early on.”

6. “I got mad during the race because I thought the guy behind me was blowing his horn at me, but my spotter told me it was just the whistle on a train going by.”

7. “I’ve got to either stop winning at Martinsville or figure out how to get all these grandfather clocks to chime at exactly the same time.”

8. “After I won they told me to take my check to the bank, but everybody knows there’s no banking at Martinsville.”

9. “I don’t really have any concrete ideas on how to get through the turns at Martinsville.”

10.  “I tired that ‘pushing the brake pedal like it has an egg on it’ trick ole DW always talks about, but I just would up with a fried egg on the floor of my car.”

    I remember DW asked Kyle Busch “Want a hot dog?” when Martinsville April 2011 was red flagged after a wreck and Kyle said “No thanks. It’ll be a couple hours before I can use the restroom.” I think Truex got a hot dog after he was checked in the care center. He had a stuck throttle and that’s why he wrecked.
