"Forget high-definition television on a 55-inch screen, Martinsville racing is an in-your-face, up-your-base thrill ride. You can hear the tires squeal, feel the impact when drivers slam into the wall, and taste the smoke when engines detonate. Just watching the controlled chaos among crewmen during pit stops is worth the price of admission." - Allen Gregory, Bristol Herald Courier
"If you think NASCAR isn’t as authentic as it was 25 years ago and you haven’t been to the paperclip, start making your travel arrangements now. Your thoughts will be a lot different when you’re walking back to your car." - Nick Bromberg, From The Marbles
