2017 winner Brad Keselowski has placed at 6th in four out of his last six appearances in the STP 500. Keselowski also loves racing at the Martinsville Speedway as he’s completed no lower than 5th in six from his last eight races .

Joey Logano ended alongside 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 last month at Las Vegas. It is interesting he’s won only once here in Martinsville Speedway however that success came in his last race , the First Data 500 past October 2018.

Denny Hamlin has not picked up a success since his victory at the Daytona 500 last season but he has definitely been consistent.
