The Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 is a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series stock car race held at the Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Virginia. The race has been run in every Sprint Cup season, starting with the inaugural 1949 season, making it the oldest NASCAR race still run today. It is the seventh race in the ten race Chase for the Sprint Cup and has been broadcast over ESPN related networks since 2007.

The 1:30 p.m. Eastern start time is one of the earliest starts in the Chase. The track does not have permanent lights installed, and shadows cast heavily over the facility in mid-October, when the race has been held since 2001. Most other NASCAR events have set a start time for 2 p.m. or later since 2005.

The Tums sponsorship returned sponsorship to GlaxoSmithKline for 2008, as their Goody's Powder brand sponsored the race from 1983-1995 and recently returned as sponsor for the spring race. As per Martinsville tradition, the winner of this race receives a custom-built grandfather clock.[1]
