Martin Truex Jr. has won three of the last four Cup races at Martinsville, and with his place in the final four not yet certain, another victory on Sunday would guarantee him a chance at a second NCS title. But statistically speaking, his JGR teammate Denny Hamlin is the best active driver at the Virginia short track. Hamlin has five wins there and a series-leading average finish of 9.7.
