Weekend Cup Series’ Tackled the Paperclip

tjwinmarty14winmartyDateline: Martinsville, VA

It was a weekend of high-speed, short-track action as the Weekend Cup series’ got back together at the shortest track on the schedule, Martinsville. It got started on Friday Night as the Friday Night Cup Series attacked the paperclip first. A good-sized field made a qualifying attempt, but it was -ECT-TJ that took the pole with a fast-lap time of 19.482 seconds.
The race was next; the field jostled for positions as they made their way through turns one and two on cold tires. Brakes are always an issue at Martinsville, so the drivers did their best. 12 yellow flags flew for 53 laps, while 8 different drivers swapped the lead 21 times officially. But when the checkers fell, it was pole sitter, -ECT-TJ crossing the line first. The rest of the Top 5 were: -ECT-ToddTaylor, OGR Ellie, -ECT-BSchilling, and OGR Devon. TJ took the point for most laps led as he led 112 of them. Ralph Howard gained the most positions (6), while Fred Morrell lost the most: 5.
The following night, it was the Midnight Thunder Series’ turn at the Home of the Martinsville HotDog to turn 225 circuits. It was -ECT-BSchilling taking the Pole to start the night, he ran a lap at 95.535 to take the award.
The event had just 9 caution flags that slowed the race speed down to 78.818 mph. Seven drivers led a lap, with Brian leading the most at 174. Schilling swept the night with the win, his fourth of the young season. The rest of the Top 5 were: OGR Ellie, Jeff Crivello, Ralph Howard, and Eric Fox. For the second time in the weekend, Ralph Howard gained the most spots during the race (3), while Shawn Nix lost the most (2) on his return to Midnight Thunder race.
Next weekend the two series will again share a track as they head Southwest to the Republic of Texas and Texas Motor Speedway
