MARTINSVILLE, TN (ATS CONSULTANTS) – The third stage of the Chase begins today for the NASCAR Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500. Here are some drivers to consider for this race.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Jimmie Johnson and Jeff Gordon are favored to win, as each have 5/1 odds while Brad Keselowski has 6/1 odds
Here are some drivers we like today:
Gordon is one of eight drivers still in the Chase, so getting a win is key and will advance him to the final race for the title. Gordon is an eight-time winner at Martinsville with an average finish of 7.0 and a driver rating of 119. This track is one of his best and he should be aggressive at the end. Look for Gordon to get a win today.
Harvick is also in the final eight for the Chase. He has just one win at Martinsville in his career, but his driver rating isn’t too bad at 93.2. Harvick has had a strong year and can add to it with a win on Sunday. Look for him to be near the front at the end. A few calls on pit road should be enough to get him a win.
Vickers isn’t in the Chase, and wins for him have been rare, but he has performed consistently well at Martinsville. He has three top 10s and has placed 11th at the track three other times. Of the drivers win long odds, Vickers has the most appeal for a big pay day. He stays out of trouble and can find a way to the front with a little luck and some good decisions.
