Kyle Busch is on a fantastic run at this time and any odds post has to begin with him.

And coming into a week with two successive wins and a race at a track at which he has three career victories, Busch is the man to beat once again. He’s the favorite heading into the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway, the shortest track in NASCAR.

This week includes a couple of intriguing storylines as Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. butted heads, and automobiles, at last season’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 for example that triumph last year while Truex is no slouch himself with six top-seven finishes in his last seven attempts in the half-mile track. These men will fight it out again for the win, but they’ll probably be fighting Busch for the victory.

At this point it would be absurd to select anybody but Busch to win and that’s what we’re doing. He is outdriving everybody in NASCAR and has the best auto. He has a fantastic chance this week to maneuver Richard Petty along with his 201st career win in NASCAR’s top three series.

The STP 500 can be viewed Sunday at two p.m. ET on FS1.
