Goodys Fast Relief 500 – Martinsville (10-30-2016)

Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway.

Jimmie Johnson came on strong in the latter laps to take the win and secure an advance to the CHASE Sprint Cup championship at Homestead. Martin Truex, Jr. started on the pole and ran up front for a good portion. Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch, Joey Logano, Kyle Larson,  A.J. Allmendinger and Regan Smith traded the lead with Truex and finally Johnson.

Only 5 cautions slowed things down. One was 25 laps plus as officials checked and re-checked the running order and some drivers left Martinsville with a feeling it still wasn’t right. All of them were somewhere behind Johnson and the #48 at the lap that counted.
