Martinsville was filled with memorable moments and the excitement stretched beyond the Monster Energy Cup Series.

In what is hopefully the first of many career victories, 19-year-old Noah Gragson took the checkered flag after passing two-time champ Matt Crafton on the restart.

Gragson was overcome with excitement after winning the race. He celebrated by climbing the fence at Martinsville Speedway, then proceeded to do a few pull-ups on the fence. All of the excitement proved to be a bit more than the young driver had bargained for. Upon coming back down to the ground, he vomited over the side of the racetrack wall.

"I'm not tired, I just felt like I ran a marathon," said Gragson. " I don't know how it feels but I guess to run a marathon is freaking hard."

"Last year I won a K&N race on a road course and ran down the front straightaway, got the checkered flag and ran back. Climbed up the fence and threw up into my helmet. I was like well damn I probably shouldn't do that again, what do you know I guess I just went to bed that day and forgot about it and did it again today."

Hopefully for his sake, he's able to come up with a different way of celebrating. Because getting sick in front of a bunch of people isn't a good look for anyone.
