The Martinsville Speedway is the shortest track in the Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The STP 500 is the first of two races here with the next one being the very first Data 500 in the NASCAR Playoffs.
Clint Bowyer won the race last year and this year, another loaded field is set to go into the race with various drivers that can really win the event. Let us take a look at who the oddsmakers believe are likely to be the drivers to observe this weekend.
“Racing” The Notifications
Kyle Busch is the betting favorite. After winning the Ticket Guardian 500 in Arizona last March 10th, Busch kept the pace with another success in the Car Club 400 in California. With back to back wins at the last two weekends, no question Kyle Busch deserves to be the +162 favorite here. Busch has finished no lower than 6th place in six out of his last seven races overall and as soon as it concerns the STP 500, he won here in 2016, finished runner-up in the previous two decades and has placed at least 5th in each of his last seven appearances here in the Martinsville Speedway.
Martin Truex Jr. place 8th last week in the Automobile Club Speedway. The 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR collection Cup winner has five Top 10 finishes in seven races this year including three in the Top 5. Heading to this weekend, Trues has finished no worse than fourth in his last three races in the Martinsville Speedway.
2017 winner Brad Keselowski has put at least 6th in four out of the last six appearances at the STP 500. Keselowski also enjoys racing at the Martinsville Speedway as he has finished no lower than 5th in six from his last eight races .
Joey Logano finished alongside Busch at California last weekend but while he came up short again, Logano has three Top 5 finishes already this year, including a win at the Pennzoil 400 last month at Las Vegas. It’s interesting he’s won only once here in Martinsville Speedway but that success came in his final race , the First Data 500 last October 2018.
Denny Hamlin hasn’t picked up a success because his victory in the Daytona 500 last year but he has surely been consistent. Hamlin is a 6.8 ending in his first five races this season and is doing a fantastic job holding his own in the Drivers Championship. Hamlin has won here thrice, the last being in 2015, with just Richard Petty, Darren Waltrip, and Rusty Wallace winning over him. In addition, he holds two successes in the Martinsville Speedway while racing at the Camping Truck World Series.
