There are 12 degrees of banking in all four turns. Ryan Newman won last year's spring race at Martinsville. Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon dominated the race by leading a combined 440 laps. Newman held off A.J. Allmendinger during thee second overtime finish to claim his 16th career Sprint Cup win, but he has not allowed a race then.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, Jimmie Johnson is the current favorite at 3/1 odds, while Jeff Gordon is 5/1 and Kyle Busch is 6/1. Brad Keselowski, meanwhile, is 8/1 while Kasey Kahne is 9/1 to win today's STP Gas Booster 500.

Jimmie Johnson 3/1

The price might not be right, but Johnson owns an average finish of 4.8 in the last ten races here, with seven top fives and three wins. He won last fall at Martinsville from the pole and has seven career victories here. He has led 430 laps in his last four Martinsville starts.

This is a great track for Junior, who is the new points leader. He averages a 10.0 finish here in the past ten races, with seven top 10s and 256 laps led. He has four top-10 finishes in his last five starts at Martinsville and led 110 laps during that stretch.

Long Shot

Paul Menard  75/1

Menard has three straight top-10 finishes after placing eighth at Auto Club Speedway. He finished 12th there last fall. Even though he's struggle here at times, he's been on a major roll and could be in the mix at the end.
