Kyle Busch is about a great run at this time and any chances post has to begin with him.
And coming right into a week with two successive wins and a race at a track where he has three career victories, Busch is the man to beat once more. He is the favorite heading into the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway, the shortest track in NASCAR.
This week has a couple of interesting storylines as Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. butted heads, and cars, at last season’s playoff race in Martinsville while Logano came away with the win.
Logano has seven top-10 finishes in his last 10 races at Martinsville for example that win last year while Truex is no slouch himself together with six top-seven finishes in his past seven attempts in the half-mile track. These men could fight it out again for the win, but they’ll probably be fighting Busch for the success.
At this point it would be foolish to select anyone but Busch to win and that is what we’re doing. He has the auto and is outdriving everybody in NASCAR at the present time. He’s got a great opportunity this week to pass Richard Petty with his 201st career win in NASCAR’s top three series.
The STP 500 could be viewed Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on FS1.
