The Chase for the Nextel Cup brings the boys back to Martinsville Speedway for the Subway 500, a track that saw Jimmie Johnson win in April after trading paint late with teammate Jeff Gordon, who just so happens to start on the Pole for today’s race.  These two Hendrick Motorsports drivers have also won the last four Subway 500s here at Martinsville.
