NASCAR at Martinsville: Odds, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for STP 500

Kyle Busch is about a great run at this time and any odds post has to start 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 guy 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 few interesting storylines as Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. butted heads, and cars, at last season’s playoff race at Martinsville while Logano came away with the win.

Logano has seven top-10 finishes in his last 10 races at Martinsville including that triumph last season while Truex is no slouch himself with six top-seven finishes in his past seven efforts in the half-mile track. These guys could fight it out for the win, but they’ll probably be fighting Busch for the success.

Now it would be foolish to pick anybody but Busch to win and that’s what we’re doing. He has the best car and can be outdriving everybody in NASCAR. He has a fantastic opportunity this week to pass Richard Petty along with his 201st career win in NASCAR’s top three series.

The STP 500 could be seen Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on FS1.
