We get our first glimpse of 2017 short track racing this weekend as the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series rolls into Martinsville Speedway. The STP 500 is only a 250-mile event but this is a grueling one for those drivers in the cars. Expect to see plenty of beating and banging on Sunday. Also, don’t be surprised to see some games being played during pit stops under caution–restarting on the inside lane can be the difference between staying up front and being shuffled back to 15th. One late restart could easily ruin one driver’s day, while turning another’s in the right direction.
