Off Week Links

Typical Mark Martin bad luck.  As a long-time Martin fan it's all too familiar - and sad.

David Ragan's racing a Southern Modified at Caraway speedway.  If not for a prior commitment I'd be there to watch.

The idiot of the month award goes to the Ambrose crew member that ran across pit road to get a tire and ensured a slim amount of cars on the lead lap throughout the rest of the race in Atlanta.  Yeah, I'm sure he's sorry. 

Someone needs to step up and sponsor Travis Kvapil.  The #28 is a top 35 team that needs to be racing every week.  

Former Speedway Motorsports executive Lauri Wilks appears to be running for Charlotte City Council.  Look for some NASCAR donors to be filling her coffers.

Be sure to check out this story on Eddie Sharp Racing's Steve Arpin, who counts Carl Edwards among friends.  ESR has been one of the top-tier teams in the last few years and should continue to do the same.

While what the 47 crew member did was stupid, you can't blame him for the caution since it would have come out for the tire anyway.

Another interesting tidbit of information is that Brian Ickler will be in the 51 for Billy Ballew for the CWTS race at Kansas. What are your thoughts on this? Apparently he does stuff with KBM in lower series.
