When it comes to short-track attitude, Martinsville delivered. You wanted good racing? We got that. You wanted heated tempers? We got that, too. You wanted a tight points race? We've got that. You wanted a new face in Victory Lane? That happened not once, but twice.
Any way you look at it, we're nearing the end of the 2013 season, and things look to be heating up with three races left. Our next stop is the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, where Jimmie Johnson looks to break the tie he has with Matt Kenseth for the points lead. Texas has been good to both men, so it will be a must-see race.
These are the biggest stories entering Texas.
