Martinsville was a thrill ride

I know if someone didn't watch Sunday's race at Martinsville Speedway but looked at the box score that showed Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch and Matt Kenseth led 498 of the 500 laps, they probably would say to themselves it wasn't much of a race. I would disagree because I think we had some really great racing on Sunday. It may not have always been for the lead but we had...
