Will Feuding Continue At Martinsville?
Two of the main players in the controversial end to the NASCAR race in California two weeks ago get back to racing in Martinsville for the Sprint Cup Series race on Sunday.
Joey Logano and Tony Stewart say they are focusing on the racing at Martinsville Speedway and pretty much refused to comment any further on the events from two weeks ago. But certainly everyone will be watching Logano and Stewart especially if they get anywhere near each other on the racetrack. Stewart starts 26th so he will be trying to come up through traffic to run down the leaders. Logano rolls off from the 4th starting spot.
Martinsville is a short half-mile track and contact between drivers is common.
Jimmie Johnson set fast time in qualifying and won the last time the Cup drivers were there in the fall and he is ready to do it again. Johnson set fast time in qualifying on Friday and broke the track record in the process. Marcos Ambrose put together a fast qualifying effort and will start his No. 9 alongside Johnson on the front row. Brian Vickers starts third in the No. 55.
Here is the complete starting lineup.
