Watching Tony Stewart perform at Watkin’s Glen was no different than attending a road-racing school and observing the instructor.
A wild finish left Jason Bowles and Patrick Long in Victory Lane on Saturday as the repeat winner in the Bennett Lane Winery 200 presented by Supercuts at Infineon Raceway.
With its super short straights and amusement park-like corners, Martinsville is an old school anomaly and one that, far more than any other track on the Trans-American circuit, chews up and spits out brake parts. A full-on scratch and dent race 131.5 miles in length, Ricky Carmichael would be jamming the brake pedal into the aluminum floorboard of his Chevy well over 300 times throughout the course of the race. With boss and coach Kevin Harvick always in his ear, RC was certainly cognizant of not only his brakes, but of the other 35 trucks that would be leaving streaks of rubber and big gouges all over his #4 Oakley Chevrolet. However when all was said and done and his truck looking like a torn-up tuna fish can covered in melted Good Year rubber, Carmichael hung tough and finished a respectable 29th.
