The first of four scheduled Excursions to Virginia is on Sunday, March 24th Using All the 71st running of the STP 500 at the Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Virginia.

The Martinsville Speedway is the trail in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The STP 500 is the first of two races here with the next one being the very first Data 500 at the NASCAR Playoffs.

Clint Bowyer won the race last year and this year, another affluent field is set to enter the race with several drivers that can really win the occasion. Let’s take a look at who the oddsmakers believe are likely to function as drivers to watch this weekend.

“Racing” The Favorites

Kyle Busch is the favorite. After winning the Ticket Guardian 500 at Arizona last March 10th, Busch maintained the speed with another success in the Auto Club 400 at California. With back to back wins at the last two weekends, no wonder Kyle Busch deserves to be the +162 favorite here. Busch has finished no lower than 6th spot in six out of the last seven races overall and as soon as it concerns the STP 500, he won here in 2016, ended runner-up in the past two decades and has put at least 5th in each of his last seven appearances here at the Martinsville Speedway.

Martin Truex Jr. place 8th last week at the Auto Club Speedway. The 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR collection Cup champion has five Top 10 finishes in seven races this season including three in the Top 5. Heading to the weekend, Trues has finished no worse than fourth in his last three races at the Martinsville Speedway.

2017 winner Brad Keselowski has put at 6th in four out of the last six looks at the STP 500. Keselowski also enjoys racing in the Martinsville Speedway as he has completed no lower than 5th in six out of his last eight races here.

Joey Logano finished next to Busch at California last weekend but while he came up short again, Logano has three Top 5 finishes already this season, including a win at the Pennzoil 400 final month at Las Vegas. It’s interesting he’s won only once here in Martinsville Speedway however that victory came in his final race , the First Data 500 last October 2018.

Denny Hamlin hasn’t picked up a victory since his triumph at the Daytona 500 final year but he has definitely been consistent. Hamlin is averaging a 6.8 ending in his first five races this season and is doing a good job holding his own at the Drivers Championship. Hamlin has won here thrice, the last being in 2015, with just Richard Petty, Darren Waltrip, and Rusty Wallace winning over him. He also holds two successes in the Martinsville Speedway while hurrying in the Camping Truck World Series.
