I needed to repost the thread for the Martinsville Pick 3 contest I will attach entries already made by others from original thread. And there might be multiples on one post at a time. Sorry about the confusion and thanks to all who are playing & good luck. Don't forget to your bonus in for free points :)

On to Martinsville we go for some short track racing. Everyone loves short track racing. Martinsville 2018 was an usual weekend. The race was postponed until Monday because of weather. Not for rain but because of snow. I’m thinking it might have been a first. But the snow was topped by Clint Bowyer breaking his 190 races winless streak. He had not won a race since Charlotte 2012. It was huge and I was so happy for him. It was the feel good race of the year. Remember how excited Bowyer was and he started running down the track to his son Cash? That was a great NASCAR moment to see Clint running to Cash and picking him up.

Anyway, going has Clint Bowyer didnt do any of us favors who picked him for Fontana by finishing last, I thought I’d honor him here with his numbers in hopes of sending him a little luck. My 3 random numbers this week will be 7th place (thats where Bowyer finished in 2017), 14th place (#14 Bowyer won in 2018 so we will honor his number) and 25th place (thats where Bowyer finished in 2016)

So, the 3 random numbers for Martinsville are who will finish in the 7th, 14th & 25th place

Also, its time for a bonus that can get everyone on the board with some guaranteed points. Going as Martinsville 2018 was postponed because of snow, the bonus is to mention a memorable race to you that was either postponed, delayed, brought the flag out, a fight or some other funny/unusual incident that happened at the race. Write the race & the incident and you will receive 3 points. The one stipulation is, it can not be a repeat of another persons post. If you write the same bonus as someone else, you will only receive 1 point. So read quickly through the posts and see if anyone has told the story you are going to post. There shouldn’t be any repeats anyway, we have countless crazy things happen in NASCAR all the time.

Ok,my most memorable and favorite race ever was when I visited my little sister living in S.C in the spring of 2003. I took her to her 1st ever race on March 16th @ Darlington. Coming off turn 4 the #32 Tide Pontiac of Ricky Craven and Kurt Bushs #97 Rousch Ford we’re side by side. They beat and banged the mortal crap out of each other all the way down the back stretch to the finish line. It was epic.
Craven would win leading only that 1 lap on his way to his 2nd and last Cup victory. His only other win came in October of 2001 when he won @ Martinsville.

Picks to come later, but for now my weather related BONUS story.

Back in '92, my softball team qualified for a regional tournament being held in South Carolina ( I lived in Maryland). This was a BIG tournament so it was held on labor day weekend (3 day weekend) Well, our team got knocked out of the tournament on Saturday evening. I had more weekend left ahead of me with no work on Monday so what did I do? Went to the Southern 500! My riding partner and I scored scalped tickets (paid 40 bucks each for 50 buck face value). We were about 15 rows up right in front of the #1 pit stall.

Long story short, the race was rain shortened and good old DW, having done a rain dance in the pits, was declared the winner. It was his last cup win.

Absolutely, in years past when someone is in the win zone, I let them pick which prize they want. If I dont have what you can use, I will get you what you want. :)
First, JPM and the jet dryer is an all-time classic we will never forget. If you get in the winning zone, I will get you what you want. I know a few years ago, I did like an American Express gift card to use anywhere. I have an Outback right around the corner and go all the time with my Dad.....especially with Harvick & the blooming onions on Monday. I can keep those cards and flush them out to other winners in a different sort of gift card :)
Thanks for posting because it made me realize I have to read another post to decipher meaning out here....I would have never figured it out ;)
I dont know if that got them all by including responses to original posts.... but it should all be in now but I will screen shot the thread to make sure even more I didnt make any mistakes. If there is any error I have made, please let me know & I will resolve it quickly

Don't suppose if I win I could get something from Hardees ? Outback and Jimmy John's just don't exist in the North country ;)
Thanks for doing the contest, I know it takes time and it is all in fun. Thank you again.
A good shot of Brandy was my mothers remedy for pain. ;)

Ok ok ok
Wyland ‘s 1st choice is when 23car (dr. Pepper sponsored) lost his battery at Bristol
Battery slid down the track, got hung up on another car, lifting front wheels off ground, affected car caused crash
I couldn’t find it
So (for real) this was his 2nd choice

He called 2car The Cheater Car rest of the season
