New contracts, new fishing holes: This was the week that was

We wouldn’t eat anything you catch in the Bristol parking lot

Did you miss a day or two of the Marbles this week? No sweat, we've got you covered. Here's what was happening as we approached Atlanta:

• A few drivers in a predominantly Republican-leaning sport decided not to visit a Democratic president in the White House, and political chaos ensued. Who'd've thunk it?

• If UPS is jumping to Carl Edwards' 99 Ford, it's news to him.

• Dale Earnhardt Jr. is looking as relaxed as ever heading into the Chase, and you would too if you had employment guaranteed through 2017.

• Mark Martin driving in a Stewart-Haas ride in 2012? It'll happen if there's money. Break open those piggy banks, Martin fans!

• Not NASCAR, but great nonetheless: the new documentary "Senna" is a can't-miss.

Fishing at Bristol? Yep, it happened. Scary, huh?
