First Chase Race in 2009 Goes to Martin

I started this post a few days ago, so I thought I would go ahead and finish it the day before the second Chase for the Cup race.

This was one of the better races to watch this year, even if my driver didn’t finish the best, I’d always rather see Martin win it if Gordon can’t, if there is one driver who should’ve been a champion by now it’s Mark Martin. If this can’t be Gordon’s year, then let’s hope Mark can keep it up. Juan Montoya was driving like he should be up front all day, I bet if he continues to be this aggressive that he will eventually be put into the wall somewhere.

Here is how they finished:
