Early Week Driver Rankings for Martinsville


The Cup Series will complete the short track portion of their schedule when they make the short trip to Martinsville Speedway. This track is unlike any track on the schedule. It is a .5-mile, flat track which requires aggressive driving to make it through the field. I like it better as a Saturday night race, but I cannot argue with the excite we are about to see this week. The NOCO 400 can be seen Sunday at 3 pm ET on FS1.
