NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412574 Hot: Denny Hamlin Hot%3A+Denny+Hamlin+ NASCAR

All they do is win! All right, so it had been a few races since Denny’s win at Richmond, but he picked a fine time to find Victory Lane. With four races left in 2010, Hamlin sits just six points out of the Chase lead.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412579 Not: Jeff Gordon Not%3A+Jeff+Gordon+++ NASCAR

Gordon had a good day going until he messed with Kurt Busch. With as many guys as Jeff has ticked off this year, you had to know it was only a matter of time before he picked the wrong one. Don’t mess with the Miller Man.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412577 Hot: Mark Martin Hot%3A+Mark+Martin++ NASCAR

It was looking like a typical Mark Martin kind of day. He spun out, and didn’t run too well. But at the end of the day, the Kid finished second! Where’d he come from?!?

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412578 Not: Michael Waltrip Racing Not%3A+Michael+Waltrip+Racing+ NASCAR

Sunday started as such a promising day for MWR. But just like all promising days before this one, things went badly wrong. Marcos Ambrose and David Reutimann both had accidents, while Martin Truex Jr. had electrical problems. Oh well, there’s always next week.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412576 Hot: Kevin Harvick Hot%3A+Kevin+Harvick++ NASCAR

Not-so-Happy was hot in more ways than one at Martinsville. But the good news is that he gained on points leader Jimmie Johnson. Next up: Talladega, where Harvick won back in April.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412580 Not: Clint Bowyer Not%3A+Clint+Bowyer++++ NASCAR

Another week, another problem for Clint. After the team built up some momentum in Charlotte, Bowyer had a self-inflicted accident at Martinsville. Let’s just not talk about his 2010 Chase, ok?

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412575 Hot: The Chase for the Sprint Cup Hot%3A+The+Chase+for+the+Sprint+Cup++ NASCAR

The current points system has been under attack lately (well, actually for the last seven years). I still don’t like it personally, but with the top two drivers separated by just six points, it’s looking like this year’s Chase might finally produce an exciting finale at Homestead, something we’d all like to see.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21422067 Not: Tony Stewart Not%3A+Tony+Stewart++++ NASCAR

It’s been a rough go for Smoke here over the past couple of weeks. Sunday’s race at Martinsville marked his second-straight finish outside the top 20, and with that, it looks like Stewart can wave bye-bye to his shot at a third Cup title.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21436001 Hot: 'Have at it, boys' racing Hot%3A+%27Have+at+it%2C+boys%27+racing+++ NASCAR

Sunday’s race at Martinsville was beautiful for anybody who just wants to see NASCAR drivers do what they want. We had payback, teammates hitting each other under caution and, did I mention payback? Ah yes, it’s a beautiful thing.

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21436002 Not : RCR drivers feelings Not+%3A+RCR+drivers+feelings+++ NASCAR

Richard Childress Racing drivers Kevin Harvick and Jeff Burton didn’t like the way each was racing the other at Martinsville, and they kind of got their wittle feewings hurt. Here’s a thought, guys: You don’t like the racing, get off the track!

NASCAR 167 43 Hot or Not: Martinsville Speedway 21412573 Wild showdown Wild+showdown+ NASCAR

The boys of NASCAR were at the short track at Martinsville Speedway to kick off the second half of the Chase. Who took home the grandfather clock and whose championship hopes may have run out? We’ve got you covered!
