  1. Typical Bill Weber at 3:49:15. My first race at Martinsville and still
    have my tickets to this day!

  2. This is probably my favorite of all of JG’s wins. If Everham would had
    never left, they would seriously challenged Richard Petty/Dale Inman’s all
    time Cup record of most wins by a Driver/Crew Chief combination. 

  3. Lol man I bet 1:12:35 Elliott Sadler was thinking…alright, front row
    seat! 

  4. 1:12:22 watch Earnhardt slow down, intentionally, so Tony could get at
    Irwin LOL!

    This was the race that made me a fan of NASCAR. I could never really watch
    it. I tried but couldn’t find a favorite driver. I knew of Gordon,
    Earnhardt, Jarrett, and the Labonte boys, but everyone liked them. I wanted
    to like somebody different. Saw the Tony Stewart incident on Sportscenter,
    went into work the next day, and asked my friend (who was a HUGE Earnhardt,
    and NASCAR fan) what the deal was with that, and who that guy was throwing
    punches.

    He said, “That’s Tony Stewart. He’s a rookie this year, and he’s really
    good. He’s the first to win 3 races in his rookie season, and he’s 4th in
    points.” It was at that time I said, “I’m going to watch NASCAR from now
    on, and he’s my driver.”

    I stayed with Tony until he left the #20 car, which I still root for. I
    still root for Tony, and Logano, but Kenseth is my guy now.
    But thanks to Tony, I became a huge fan of this sport.

  5. my birthday of all days gordon gets the win i was happy as hell on this
    day!

  6. i think this race was the beginning of nascar getting kinda ..bitchy

  7. Thank you so much! It was 11 years old and it was my first Winston Cup
    race. Was sitting over down in turn 2, and I was a huge Gordon fan. Was
    nice to see him and Earnhardt duke it out for the win.
