The Friday night special is a Martin-tini

Martinitini.....for the second time this season, the Martins have been sitting on the front row. That would be Martin Truex Jr. and Mark Martin. Martin Truex won the first pole of the season at Daytona with Mark Martin sitting on his heels. Here we are at the last pole prior to the chase and it's deja-vous. Mark Martin is on the pole with Martin Truex by his side in spot number two.

So, its the race before the chase and what a difference a year makes, who would have ever thought that Kyle Busch would be the one sitting on the outside looking in. Tomorrow's race is why NASCAR may be one of the most exciting sports ever.

Our Richmond news and stats starts off with something non-driver related. One of our favorite pit road announcers, ESPN's Shannon Spake, is pregnant- expecting twin boys!!! We had a great opportunity to meet and interview Shannon in July. She is a true girls girl and we absolutely adore her. Shannon is due in January and we couldn't be happier for her and her husband.

So...back to the race, if you were to pick one of the bubble drivers to make it into the chase, who would it be? My money is 110% on Brian Vickers. Brian and his crew chief, Ryan Pemberton, have proven themselves this season. I am a underdog kinda gal and I am crossing my fingers and toes that they make it into the chase.

Let's go racing boys.
