The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series is at Martinsville Speedway this weekend, and with Kyle Busch winning at both Phoenix and Fontana over the previous two weeks, he’s been set up as a heavy favorite for the STP 500 in”The Paperclip”–and for good reason: Rowdy has not finished outside the top 5 in this track since the 2014 season, and he has led a combined 582 laps within the previous four (and 937 over the last six). Obviously, when you have the preferred at +150 to triumph, so there is some fantastic significance in gambling others in the event that man has issues throughout the race.

Last weekend at Auto Club Speedway my favourite bets went 2-0, bringing my yearly record to 5-3. I’d Brad Keselowski to complete top 3, and his afternoon went south early, so that has been screwed from the beginning.

Martin Truex, Jr.. Top 3 End (+200) — The races in Martinsville are generally predictable: we see the same faces up front again and again, and we do not watch Martin Truex, Jr. in victory lane. Where we do see himthough, is close enough to acquire if something goes wrong with the leader. Over the previous 3 races at”The Paperclip,” Truex has posted finishes of 3rd, 4th, and 2nd, although he starts back into 8th for the STP 500, he has one hell of a race car under him to get to the front. The 19 Toyota ranked #1 at 10-, 15-, 20-, and 30-lap average during the final practice session here on Saturday, and there’s going to be plenty of runs throughout the race. Truex will really shine during these. When you study this week’s rankings by the Fantasy Racing On line algorithm, Truex is a very close 4th behind Logano, and if you take a look at current trends by pole sitters from the spring Martinsville race, then I’d give that edge to Truex.

Chris Buescher (+105) over Daniel Hemric — I’m honestly surprised Chris Buescher isn’t getting more love this weekend. This #37 team hasn’t finished worse than 18th since the Daytona 500, plus they’ve got a good starting place for today’s STP 500 (12th). Meanwhile, Hemric will start from back in 28th, and has a propensity to hit the wall more often than not. We’ve got 500 laps to race in the present STP 500, and to tell the truth, I am not sure he finishes. On the flip side, Buescher has finished 13th, 23rd, 21st, and 11th in his past four Martinsville starts, and he’s running better than he has probably ever conducted. This is really a no brainer for me.
