      Jimmie Johnson Talks about Martinsville Testing

      Martinsville - Hendrick Motorsports Cup drivers got in some short track testing Tuesday and today at Martinsville Speedway.Sprint Cup points leader Jeff Gordon and teammates Dale Earnhardt, Junior, Jimmie Johnson and Kasey Kahne all turned laps on the half-mile oval in preparation for the Goody's 500 in late October. Gordon and Johnson have each won Martinsville EIGHT times. So why do they need more practice at the track?Jimmie Johnson said "We haven't tested here in a long, long time so as a group we kind of sat in a room and raised our hands to what tracks in the Chase we wanted to test at and the majority wanted to come to Martinsville so we're not reinventing the wheel while we're here but we're certainly learning a lot and we're hopeful to strike when we come back in the Chase."
