It's a track where close racing is required and banging fenders is part of the deal. No car leaves the track without a donut on the side or sheet metal not damaged.

Martinsville Speedway has been known as a track where muscle is more important than momentum. If a driver can bang his way to the lead, so be it. If the driver getting hit is angry at the move, unfortunately it is just part of the deal.

NASCAR descends on the "Paper Clip" this weekend for race No. 6 of the Chase.
