MARTINSVILLE, Va. —
Martin, mindful of Hamlin’s four career victories at Martinsville, finished a disappointing 10th.
“I did not fill Denny Hamlin’s shoes, I can tell you that much,” he said.
Tony Stewart, who said earlier in the week he thought it would be funny to watch Danica Patrick try to navigate her way around the track, got passed by his rookie driver with 19 laps to go. Patrick finished 12, Stewart 17th.
