    After stopping the clocks with a qualifying time of 20.710 at 91.434 miles per hour, Ricky Carmichael was slotted in at spot number 29 on the starting grid for the Kroger 250. A 250-lap, 131.5-mile race on the 0.526-mile oval known as Martinsville Speedway, the paperclip shaped track marked not only marked the fourth race of rookie Ricky Carmichael’s still very young NASCAR, but also his first on an elite short track. Today’s race was scheduled to go green at 2:00 P.M. (EST), however the rain gods were did cooperate in dreary Virginia, a steady light rain soaking the track and keeping Carmichael seated inside his #4 Oakley/KHI All-Stars Chevrolet Silverado. With all kinds of crazy colors showing precipitation in various forms all over the local weather radar screen, at Noon, NASCAR decided to call the race. The Kroger 250 has now been postponed to 12 Noon (EST) on Monday, March 30, 2009.

    Just three races into his rookie season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Ricky Carmichael was hit from behind, sent spinning into a multi-car wreck and placed an ill-deserved 24th on the 2.5-mile Daytona superspeedway, was eighth at the 2.0-mile Auto Club Speedway D-oval in Fontana, California and was, due to no fault of his own, crashed at 180 miles per hour-plus on the 1.54 mile Atlanta Motor Speedway. But now comes round four of the series: The Kroger 250. A 250-lap, 131.5-mile race staged on Martinsville Speedway, a 0.5276-mile, 12-degree banked oval, it is the smallest at oldest track in all of NASCAR. Words by Eric Johnson
