Kyle Busch is on a fantastic run right now and any chances post has to start with him.
And coming into per week with two consecutive 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 automobiles, 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 including that win last season while Truex is no slouch himself together with six top-seven finishes in his past seven efforts at the half-mile track. These guys will fight it out again for the win, but they’ll likely be fighting Busch for the victory.
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 can be outdriving everyone in NASCAR in the present time. He’s got a great chance this week to pass Richard Petty 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.
