The 2018 NASCAR season rolls on Sunday with the STP 500 in Martinsville, Virginia. Kyle Busch is the Vegas favorite at 3/1 at the flat, half-mile track. Before you make any kind of bet on NASCAR at Martinsville, you need to see what Micah Roberts has to say.
As a Vegas bookmaker, Roberts was the first to offer expanded NASCAR betting. Now he hands out NASCAR winners to his followers.
In the 2017 NASCAR playoffs, Roberts picked nine of 10 winners. That wasn’t a fluke, either. In 2016, he told readers to back Denny Hamlin at 15/1 in the Daytona 500. The result: Hamlin edged Martin Truex Jr. for the checkered flag. Roberts also nailed Hamlin at 40/1 to win at Watkins Glen later that year.
This season, Roberts was all-in on Kevin Harvick at the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 despite two other drivers having the same field-leading odds. The result: Harvick dominated, leading for 181 of 325 laps and cruising to victory by 2.69 seconds.
Then, Roberts again backed Harvick at the Pennzoil 400 despite three other drivers opening with the same odds. The result: Harvick led 214 laps and took the checkered flag. And last week, Roberts called three of the top five finishers at the Auto Club 400.
There was no qualifying session because of a wintry mix that moved through the Virginia area and halted the Truck Series race after 23 laps Saturday. The truck race will resume after Sunday’s Cup event. Nine-time Martinsville winner and seven-time NASCAR Cup champion Jimmie Johnson will be looking to secure his first win of the season. In addition to the checkered flags, Johnson has led 20.6 percent of all laps at the track in addition to posting a 7.7 average finish. The race couldn’t come at a better time for Johnson, who is beginning to build momentum off a top-10 finish last week at Auto Club Speedway.
If Johnson were to take home another checkered flag this weekend, he’d become the third driver in Cup Series history to have 10 or more wins at multiple tracks; the No. 48 driver of course has 11 wins at Dover. He would go on to join NASCAR Hall of Famers Darrell Waltrip and Richard Petty.
Truex will be looking to get his second-straight win in the series, though if he made the trip to Victory Lane, it’d be a career first for him at the track. The No. 78 started on the outside pole en route to a second-place finish last November before going on to win the Cup Series championship. Runner-up to Truex at Homestead was Kyle Busch, who is no stranger to Martinsville. The No. 18 driver has two wins and five consecutive top fives in his last five races at the track and is hoping to take home his first checkered flag of the season on Sunday.
