Prized NASCAR Ridgeway Martinsville grandfather clock 2505. According to the SB Nation dot com website, whomever wins a race at the legendary NASCAR Martinsville Speedway, a Grandfather clock is awaiting them in Victory Lane. The Ridgeway Martinsville Grandfather Clock is a trophy that has become one of the most recognizable and sought after in NASCAR. Dale Earnhardt Jr has high hopes and expectations for winning at Martinsville Raceway, just like his father did on 6 previous occasions.
But it was not meant to be. While Dale Earnhardt Jr reclaimed his #1 spot in the NASCAR power rankings. he finished 3rd in last Sunday’s race. So his quest for a Martinsville grandfather clock continues, as Earnhardt had neither the car nor the tires to contend with Kurt Busch and Jimmie Johnson for the win. But in a testament to the kind of season he has had so far, Earnhardt’s third-place effort Sunday was the fourth time he has finished third or better this year. That is impressive!

NASCAR and the Ridgeway Grandfather Clock Company, which is nowadays a division of Howard Miller Clocks — and Howard Miller Grandfather Clocks are truly equivalent, with the grandfather clock cases being made in the same place in Michigan, and the same German mechanical movements made by Kieninger Clocks being used, aside from different styles, it is really only the name on the grandfather clock dial that makes the grandfather clock appear different in a meaningful way — have a long history of grandfather clocks and floor clocks being given as prizes to NASCAR Champions.
