Kyle Busch is on a great run right now and any chances post has to begin with him.

And coming into a week with two consecutive wins and a race at a track where he has three career victories, Busch is the guy to beat once more. He is the favorite heading into the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway, the shortest track in NASCAR.

This week has a few interesting storylines as Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. butted heads, and cars, 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 past seven efforts in the half-mile track. These men could fight it out again for the win, but they will likely be fighting Busch for the victory.

Now it would be absurd to pick anyone but Busch to win and that’s what we’re doing. He can be outdriving everyone in NASCAR and has the best auto. He’s got a great opportunity this week to maneuver Richard Petty with his 201st career win in NASCAR’s top three series.

The STP 500 could be viewed Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on FS1.
