The Dragon Energy NASCAR Cup Series is at Martinsville Speedway this weekend, and with Kyle Busch winning at both Phoenix and Fontana within the last two weeks, he has been installed as a heavy favorite for today’s STP 500 at”The Paperclip”–and for good reason: Rowdy has not finished outside of the top 5 in this track because the 2014 season, and he has led a joint 582 laps over the last four (and 937 over the last six). Obviously, whenever you have the preferred at +150 to win, that means there’s some fantastic significance in gambling others in the event that man has problems throughout the race.
Last weekend at Auto Club Speedway my favourite bets went 2-0, bringing my yearly record to 5-3. I’d Brad Keselowski to complete top 3, along with his afternoon went south , so that was screwed from the beginning.

Martin Truex, Jr.. Top 3 Finish (+200) — The races in Martinsville are usually predictable: we find the exact same faces up front again and again, and we don’t watch Martin Truex, Jr. in victory lane. Where we do see him, though, is close enough to win if something goes wrong with the chief. Over the last three races in”The Paperclip,” Truex has posted finishes of 3rd, 4th, and 2nd, although he begins back in 8th for today’s STP 500, he’s got one hell of a race car underneath him for into the front. The #19 Toyota ranked #1 in 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-lap average during the final practice session here on Saturday, and there is going to be lots of runs throughout the race. Truex will shine during those. If you study this week’s ranks by the Fantasy Racing On line algorithm, Truex is a very close 4th supporting Logano, and if you look at recent trends by pole sitters in the spring Martinsville race, I would give that advantage to Truex.
Chris Buescher (+105) over Daniel Hemric — I am honestly surprised Chris Buescher isn’t becoming more love this weekend. This #37 team hasn’t finished worse than 18th since the Daytona 500, and they have got a great starting place for the current STP 500 (12th). Meanwhile, the Hemric will begin from back in 28th, also has a tendency to hit the wall more frequently than not. We have got 500 laps to race in the present STP 500, and to be honest, I’m not sure he ends. On the flip side, Buescher has completed 13th, 23rd, 21st, and 11th in his past four Martinsville begins, and he is running better than he has probably ever conducted. This one is a no brainer for me.
