In a day filled with drama, perhaps none was more dramatic then Jeff Gordon’s 93rd career win Sunday at Martinsville Speedway. Gordon took the lead in the final laps and held off a hard charging Jamie McMurray to score arguably the most emotional win of his long career. His wasn’t the only dramatic story Sunday however. Here’s how it all went down in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway Sunday.
After a rainy morning, the rain stopped in time to fire engines and send the cars out to the track near the scheduled time. Under still gloomy skies the field took a few extra laps as parts of the track and pit road were still damp. The field finally took the green and the yellow as NASCAR started counting laps but kept the field under the caution.
The field led by Joey Logano who started from his second Martinsville pole of the season took the green and were cut loose on lap 7. MORE>>>
