What do grandfather clocks, paperclips, hot dogs, and being the shortest have in common? Any NASCAR fan will immediately guess those are all things related to the Martinsville Speedway. On Sunday, there were all of those things, as well as an ominous sky that never produced any rain, and a Victory Lane inhabited by a very grateful Chevy driver. The race broadcast also produced commercials, as expected.
