Fans can watch the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Martinsville live online and see whether Kyle Busch can turn his first-ever pole win at Martinsville Speedway into a win on Sunday.
Busch earned the pole at NASCAR’s smallest, tightest track with a lap at 99.674 mph, and said the position will be quite an advantage.
“I think that’s a great thing for us,” Busch said. “We get to pit there and of course drop the jack and just lunge across the line and be good.
“You need to still run up front all day. I think that it’s a great opportunity for us to pick up some spots say if we’re second, third, fourth, whatever, but you definitely always want to stay as close to the front as you can and try not to use that box as much as some guys have in the past.”
The flag drops for the race at 1 pm ET, with coverage on Fox.
Interestingly, Busch wasn’t even the fastest time during qualifying sessions. Under the new qualifying system, all 44 cars compete in a 30-minute first session with the top 12 moving on to a 10-minute second phase. During the first phase driver Joey Logano set a track record with a lap at 100.201 mph.
Fans who watch the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Martinsville live online will also get a chance to see if driver Denny Hamlin can follow through on a promise that he would win on Sunday.
“I knew, even going into this weekend, I knew we were going to be really good contenders and be in the mix anyway,” said Hamlin. “I feel like after running a couple laps of practice I felt like this was a car that was capable of winning. I think with tire management being more of a factor than it’s ever been, it kind of lends itself to my driving style even more. For that reason I think we’ll be tough on Sunday.”
