Driver Rankings for Martinsville


Wow, only two races left in the crazy 2020 season. Joey Logano secured his spots in the championship race at Phoenix. Will another driver find his way to Victory Lane at Martinsville and earn an automatic ticket to the championship race? I am sure the drivers will be pushing each other out of the way in order to stay alive in the playoffs. The Martinsville 500 can be seen Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on NBC.

The Cup Series is using a new aero package on the short tracks this year. It is nearly the same aero package that was used in 2017 and 2018. I am using the stats from the races in 2017 and 2018 and the stats from the race at Martinsville in June. I also sprinkled in some stats from the flat tracks in 2019 (Phoenix, New Hampshire and Richmond) and the stats from the last 4 oval track races (I did this to factor in momentum).
