Kyle Busch is on a great run at this time and any odds post must begin with him.
And coming 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 to 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 automobiles, at last year’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 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 men will fight it out for the win, but they’ll likely be fighting Busch for the victory.
At this point it would be absurd to pick anybody but Busch to win and that’s what we’re doing. He can be outdriving everybody in NASCAR and has the auto. He’s got a great chance this week to maneuver Richard Petty along with his 201st career win in NASCAR’s top three series.
The STP 500 could be viewed Sunday at two p.m. ET on FS1.
