Kyle Busch is on a great run at this time and any odds post has to start 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 again. He’s the favorite heading to 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 year’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 year while Truex is no slouch himself together with six top-seven finishes in his last seven efforts in the half-mile track. These men will fight it out for the win, but they’ll probably be fighting Busch for the victory.
At this point it would be absurd to pick anyone 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 great opportunity this week to maneuver Richard Petty with his 201st career win in NASCAR’s top three series.
The STP 500 can be seen Sunday at two p.m. ET on FS1.
