Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 4/10/21 - NASCAR Picks & Predictions

The shortest race of the year takes place this weekend and it will be a great battle. However, Martinsville is a great racetrack and one that a lot of fans are going to enjoy. The best part is unlike Bristol the race will be on the regular track and tends to give a little bit more in the way of speed. 

Martin Truex Jr. is the favorite and it is easy to see why after winning the race last year. However, Truex has not really had Lady Luck on his side this year and that will definitely make it a challenge for Truex to win this race and not to mention the pit crew has done good, but the race has just went away from Truex as it goes along.

Joey Logano came in second at the race last year. However, it will definitely be a great race for Logano here as he proved that he is able to run good on the short tracks. Now, one other problem that Logano may have is the fact that he has been unable to finish out the races on the year.

Denny Hamlin +700

Denny Hamlin is out pick to get the win in this race. Hamlin has been a strong driver at Martinsville in the past with 6 top five finishes in his last 7 races here. Look for that type of luck to continue for Hamlin here and with the dirt track behind him Hamlin should be able to come into the race here and do really well with the way that he is able to drive the car. Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 Winner Prediction, Denny Hamlin.
