BROADCAST: TelevisionNBC-Ch. 26; RadioMotor Racing Network
DISTANCE: 500 laps
2001 WINNER: Ricky Craven
NOTES: The key to Martinsville, which is shaped like a paperclip, is brakes. It's important to use enough of the car in the first 400 laps to remain in contention, but have enough brakes and fenders remaining to make a charge in the final 100 laps.
