Weekend schedules for Sprint Cup, Trucks at Martinsville Speedway

0 Comments

Sunday’s Goody’s Headache Relief Shot 500 at Martinsville Speedway begins Round 3 of the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

Having swept all three races of Round 2, can Joey Logano make it four wins in a row at Martinsville? Will there be payback from drivers who felt victimized by others?

The Camping World Truck Series also will compete at the short track this weekend. The Xfinity Series is off.
