Nearly 90- thousand people packed into the Martinsville Speedway Sunday to watch Nascar's A-list drivers run yesterday. The population of Martinsville multiplied about six times over and everything fans bought helped a struggling local economy get back in the black. Business was booming at the Red Birch Country Market where shelves are well stocked and employees prepared. Outside parking slots are sold for 20- dollars a pop, including spaces in front of gas pumps. Across the street campers rent spaces in front of a grocery store.
