It’s party weather at Brandon Jones.
Joe Gibbs Racing Xfinity Series driver is coming off a big win at Martinsville Speedway, where the winner receives the most epic trophy in NASCAR racing. Instead of a cup or statuette, the winners of the three NASCAR National Series races at the Virginia track receive a grandfather clock with the race logo etched into the glass.
The award is provided by Grand Home Furnishings and commemorates the local woodworking industry. It ranks among the most unusual sports alongside Nashville’s Gibson guitar and Gladiator’s sword award at Bristol Motor Speedway, which bills itself as the last great Coliseum.
Jones received his clock on the podium after the race, but it took a few days before it arrived at his team’s store in Huntersville, North Carolina, and was sent home in the back of a van.

The clock is not only useful and a great conversation starter, it is also worth having. The same model is priced at $2,599.95, but winning NASCAR teams can purchase replica prize clocks at a 20% discount.
