The final real short track race of the season is this weekend at Martinsville Speedway, as the First Data 500 kicks off Round 3 of the 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. Earlier this year at Martinsville, we saw Brad Keselowski absolutely dominate the race from his 3rd-place starting spot, leading 446 of the 500 laps. One thing to note, though, is that Keselowski admitted that Chase Elliott probably had the best car that day, but track position was everything and it was almost impossible to pass the leader. It shouldn’t have been surprising, then, that eight of the top 10 qualifiers all finished inside that mark as well. Only Kyle Busch (started 13th and finished 3rd) and Ryan Blaney (started 17th and finished 4th) broke that trend.
