There will be no discussion of rules package, changes, horsepower or drafting in this week’s STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
The smallest track on the NASCAR schedule at only a half-mile creates tight racing and close competition simply because of its quarters.
Drivers require a particular skill set to succeed in the historic path. But patience and a cool head through a 500-lap, almost four-hour mill can also be paramount to win the race or finish well.
For people who like NASCAR betting, here are six motorists to consider financing in Sunday’s STP 500.
Kyle Busch (+200)
It is probably going to be a while before Busch is not considered a favorite at any course on the Cup circuit. He is off to some red-hot start, and it has won two races in a row.
His Automobile Club Speedway success a week ago was his 200th career NASCAR national series win. Busch has a series of seven straight Martinsville top-10 finishes such as wins in the 2016 spring race and 2017 autumn race. Bet Busch to acquire +200 and -200 to finish 1st-3rd with SugarHouse in New Jersey.
Brad Keselowski (+500)
Keselowski has ended from the top-10 seven from the past eight Martinsville races and won there at the 2017 spring race.
In the past 10 races in the track, the Team Penske driver has led the third-most laps in 427. Bet him to triumph at +500 and +125 to finish 1st-3rd with 888Sport in New Jersey.
Joey Logano (+600)
Martinsville has been a contentious place for Logano over the years, such as last October when he made contact with Martin Truex Jr. on the last turn of the final lap to have the lead and the win.
However, Logano is also among the strongest drivers in the track, and it has directed 825 laps at its own past 10 races (second most) including 309 ahead of the area last fall. Bet him to triumph +600 and +150 to finish 1st-3rd with 888Sport.
Martin Truex Jr. (+600)
Truex, fresh at Joe Gibbs Racing this year, has not forgotten how things ended last year with Logano and may have revenge in his thoughts.
The 2017 series champion hasn’t won a short track race in his Cup career but has been at the top-five the previous three Martinsville outings. Bet Truex Jr. to succeed +600 and +150 to finish 1st-3rd with SugarHouse.
Clint Bowyer (+1000)
He finished a long drought in last spring’s Martinsville race when he dominated by top 215 laps and took the checkered flag.
Bowyer has struggled early this year but is considered one of the very best short-track racers from the show as he proved again one year ago. Bet Bowyer to win at +1000 and +250 to complete 1st-3rd with 888Sport.
Denny Hamlin (+1000)
The Virginia native believes Martinsville a house track and had thousands of laps under his belt in regional racing in the track before he migrated to NASCAR’s top level.
He is a five-time Martinsville winner and snuck across the Logano vs. Truex final-lap dust-up last November to finish se cond. Bet Hamlin to triumph at +1000 and +250 to complete 1st-3rd with SugarHouse.
2019 STP 500 Betting Tip
Last week’s qualifying session was a non-event: 12 drivers who advanced to the last round failed to find a formal lap on the plank. The dozen all waited until the very last second to take advantage of the higher rates in the draft and miscalculated.
That won’t happen this week at Martinsville given the design and the lack of drafting. Qualifying and getting a high starting spot might be the most critical region of the weekend.
A whopping 21 drivers have won from the pole throughout Martinsville’s long history. Given that the tight quarters and problem passing, particularly during extended green-flag runs, track position is key. A total of 65 Cup race winners have come from the first four starting spots.
Pit stops and pit stall positioning is also crucial. Search for teams near the front five or four stalls, allowing easy access to get back on track in tight quarters, to have an advantage.
