NASCAR betting heads to "The Paperclip" for the second half of the chase for the Sprint Cup with the Goody’s Fast Relief 500! Formerly known as the Subway 500 and TUMS Fast Relief 500.
Martinsville starts the second half of the chase and the sixth Sprint Cup race. The paperclip-shaped short track is exciting due to the track's configuration of long straightaways and flat, narrow turns which cause hard breaks and smooth accelerations.
It also doesn't hurt to have the best drivers competing for valuable Cup points and with its 1:00 p.m. eastern start time, the Goodys Fast Relief 500 has one of the earliest starts of any race included in The Chase.
The early start is required given that Martinsville does not have permanent lighting installed, and the mid-October shadows making it otherwise difficult for drivers to see and perform to the best of their ability.
The demanding layout consistently produces some of the wildest fender scrubbing, push and shove racing on the NASCAR circuit.
It is the final short track race of the Sprint Cup Series at a little over half a mile (.526 miles) and always provides great NASCAR championship betting action.

Martinsville Speedway Track History
Martinsville Speedway is one of the smaller tracks in NASCAR and It is also one of the sport's most historic tracks, with a history dating back to 1947.
Since then Martinsville has grown from a dusty, rough-hewn operation into one of the most beautiful and modern racing facilities around. It features some of the best beating, banging, and good old fashioned short track racing on the NASCAR circuit.
Martinsville Speedway opened with 750 seats and since then has doubled in size. The track was unpaved until 1955 and the track configuration has not been changed since Red Byron won the inaugural event.
Martinsville might have been Richard Petty's favorite track as well, because The King won 15 races there. When the Goodys Fast Relief 500 starts, the standings really start take shape and the true contenders emerge.
After racing at Martinsville the drivers of the Sprint Cup Series will move on to Texas Motor Speedway to continue the Chase at the AAA Texas 500 in November. Be sure to bookmark our Nascar page to get the most up to date Nascar lines to place that all important bet before the big races.
