Kyle Busch is on a great run at this time and any chances post has to begin with him.
And coming into per week with two successive wins and a race at a track where he has three career victories, Busch is the man to beat once again. He’s the favorite heading to the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway, the shortest track in NASCAR.
This week includes a few intriguing storylines as Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. butted heads, and automobiles, 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 for example that win last season while Truex is no slouch himself with six top-seven finishes in his past seven attempts in the half-mile track. These guys will fight it out again for the win, but they will likely be fighting Busch for the success.
At this point it would be absurd to select anybody but Busch to win and that’s what we’re doing. He has the best car and can be outdriving everyone in NASCAR at the moment. He’s got a fantastic chance this week to maneuver Richard Petty along with his 201st career win in NASCAR’s top three series.
The STP 500 can be seen Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on FS1.
