The Likely Suspects: Hendrick Motorsports rules at Martinsville, so if you still have starts from the Hendrick stable go ahead and use them here. Among the Martinsville standouts are: Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Denny Hamlin, and Tony Stewart.

My 2 Cents: The absolute no-brainer pick this week is Jimmie Johnson. Since I am out of Jimmie Johnson starts my pick is Jeff Gordon, followed closely by Denny Hamlin. If you have Dale Earnhardt Jr. starts left go for it. He has been out of the car for two weeks and he is awesome at Martinsville. Since I don't I will be going with Ryan Newman, AJ Allmendinger, Jeff Burton, and Joey Logano. Clint Bowyer is also a great pick for Martinsville. I will complete my team with Brian Vickers who will be driving in the  No. 55 car this week and Casey Mears.

Regardless of your picks, Martinsville always puts on a great race, so enjoy! Post your comments here or email me at
