Updated Driver Rankings for Martinsville


The Cup Series teams had 20 minutes to shake down their cars for the race Sunday. Martinsville is a .526-mile, short, flat track. Most of the drivers had no problems making long runs in practice. It is tough to see which drivers truly had the fastest cars since traffic can skew a driver’s lap times. The best way to see which driver was fast is to see who is at the top of the single-lap speed chart, the 10-lap average speed chart and qualifies up front. The drivers who check all of these boxes are the drivers at the top of the Driver Rankings this week.
