The sixth race of the Nascar Sprint Cup Series is ready to get underway at the Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway. The STP 500, named after the sponsors STP, is a five hundred lap race. Each lap runs for almost half a mile. The winners for the last two years, at this speedway have clocked three hours and thirty eight minutes. Kurt Busch won the race in 2014 driving the Chevrolet.
The Martinsville Speedway has been a particular stronghold of veteran Jimmie Johnson who has won the race three times. He first won it in 2007, followed by his second win in 2009. Johnson won it for the third time in 2013. He is still a strong contender for winning the race, given his vast experience and standing in the Sprint Cup this season.
After the first couple of races, Johnson stands at second place with eighty seven points, behind leader and winner of the Daytona 500 Joey Logano who has secured eighty eight points. The third position is occupied by defending champion Kevin Harvick who has eighty six points. With only a point each separating the drivers, these rankings are surely going to change as the season progresses.
This season Kyle Busch is missing from action, owing to an injury he sustained earlier. His absence has certainly left a vacuum and names such as Harvick and Dale Earnhardt are emerging to fill the spot.
