Martinsville has already given fans countless memorable moments in the playoffs over the last couple of years, especially with incidents like Matt Kesneth versus Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin versus Chase Elliott drastically changing the playoff picture, and there should be no doubt in anyone’s mind that it would be the perfect spot to host the seasons last race.
The short track racing will keep things bunched up and exciting, the tempers will add an extra wrinkle into the already tense mix and the restarts will be something that fans will probably remember for a long time. In the end, having Martinsville as the last track of the season would be a great way for NASCAR to back to the short track roots that made it famous and give fans the championship race they have deserved for a long time.
Please understand that while Bristol and Richmond would also be great picks for the list, Martinsville just has that consistent excitement factor that puts it above its other short track counterparts. It has more examples of tight racing, great finishes and the rivalries that would make a championship race memorable. Not only that, it has the most unique layout of the three tracks, which will create extra fun for the drivers.
