NASCAR will hit the 0.526-mile Virginia short track, the Martinsville Speedway for the 8th round of Cup Series Racing, and fans will be expecting yet another exciting race day at Martinsville. Though the Richmond short track wasn’t as electrifying as the previous seven rounds so, NASCAR needs to produce a wild racing weekend to cater to the fans.
Denny Hamlin won the Richmond Cup Series Race in an amazing comeback that saw him finish ahead of fellow veteran Kevin Harvick. He will be going into Martinsville as the most successful active driver at Martinsville, winning the race five times. But he has a strong constraint to overcome as he is yet to win a cup series race at Martinsville since 2015.
Kevin Harvick and reigning cup series champion Kyle Larson, both of them who made their comeback to form in Richmond will be hoping to get back to winning ways at Martinsville. Fans will also be actively watching the race to find out whether any of the previous winners of the last 7 rounds will become a double champion
