MARTINSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson have combined to win the last nine races at Martinsville Speedway.
But both drivers insist they have no competitive advantage at NASCAR's oldest active track.
Instead, they credit their success to accepting that there's only one way to get around the paper clip-shaped track.
Johnson said Martinsville is unlike any other track in that there's only one line to drive. Figuring out the line and how to set up the car has given him and Hamlin an edge.
Hamlin goes into Sunday as winner of the last three races at Martinsville.
Qualifying is Saturday.
