That year, SHR had three of its four cars in the playoffs thanks to Tony Stewart's last-gasp win at Sonoma. All four of the team's cars finished in the top 10 for the first time at Phoenix two weeks ago and Harvick, Bowyer, Kurt Busch and Aric Almirola are all in the top 11 in the points standings.

The Vegas favorite, Kyle Busch, is still looking for his first win of the season and very well may get it this Sunday.

Due to snowy conditions, the track announced hours before Sunday's action that both events have been postponed to Monday.

Kyle Busch consistently ran 1.5 seconds behind Bowyer in the final 109-lap green-flag run.

After a pit stop with 115 laps to go, Hamlin had to make a second stop to fix damage causing his number 11 vehicle to overheat.

Last year's victor Brad Keselowski has a good history in Martinsville. The #48 auto has nine wins in Martinsville and has finished in the top-5 nineteen times in his career.

This is the first time since 2010 that the spring Martinsville race has been moved to Monday.

He finally figured it out on the short track in Virginia and won for the first time since his victory at Charlotte in October 2012.

It was the sixth straight Martinsville race in which Busch finished in the top five.

The No. 18 Toyota was strong, but not quite strong enough to out-muscle Ryan Blaney or Clint Bowyer. Bowyer teammate Kevin Harvick, victor of three races this season, was fifth and followed by Joey Logano in another Ford. William Byron placed 20th, while Bubba Wallace was 34th - 14 laps off the pace. The heavy damage will prevent him from winning. Now, full-time Cup Series drivers can not even score points in Xfinity Series or Truck Series races.

NASCAR has postponed Sunday's Cup series race at Martinsville Speedway to Monday because of snow.

Bowyer then went into the stands to greet the fans who returned to Martinsville two days after a snowstorm pushed all track activity to Monday. The starting lineup was set using owner points, putting Martin Truex Jr. on the pole. Johnson is still looking to snap his 28 race winless streak, but I don't think this will be the week it happens.
