Report[edit]

Background[edit]

Martinsville Speedway, the race track where the race was held.

Martinsville Speedway is one of five short tracks that hold NASCAR races; the others are Richmond Raceway, Dover International Speedway, Bristol Motor Speedway, and ISM Raceway.[5] The standard track at Martinsville Speedway is a 0.526 miles (0.847 km) long, four-turn, short track oval.[6] The track's turns are banked at eleven degrees while the front stretch, the location of the finish line, is banked at zero degrees. The back stretch also has zero-degree banking.[6] The racetrack can accommodate 63,000 spectators.[6]

Before the race, Jimmie Johnson led the Drivers' Championship with 5,843 points, and Denny Hamlin stood in second place with 5,802 points. Third-placed Kevin Harvick had 5,766 points, seventy-nine ahead of Jeff Gordon and 100 ahead of Kyle Busch in fourth and fifth places, respectively. Tony Stewart with 5,666 points, was twenty-three points ahead of Carl Edwards and Greg Biffle with 5,618 points was twelve ahead of Kurt Busch, and fourteen in front of Jeff Burton.[7] Matt Kenseth and Clint Bowyer were eleventh and twelfth places with 5,587 and 5,543 points, respectively . In the Manufacturers' Championship, Chevrolet led with 230 points, forty-five points ahead of their rival Toyota. Ford, with 145 points, was twenty-three points ahead of Dodge in the battle for third place.[8] Hamlin was the race's defending champion after winning it in 2009.[9]

Practice and qualifying[edit]

Denny Hamlin won the pole position, after having the fastest time of 19.518 seconds.

Three practice sessions were held before the Saturday race—one on Friday and two on Saturday. The first session lasted ninety minutes while the second session lasted forty-five minutes. The third and final session lasted sixty minutes.[10] During the first practice session, Stewart, who was racing for the Stewart Haas Racing team, was quickest ahead of Hamlin in second and Juan Pablo Montoya in the third position.[11] Biffle was scored fourth and David Reutimann was fifth.[11] Bowyer, David Ragan, A. J. Allmendinger, Gordon, and Joey Logano rounded out the ten drivers who were quickest in the session.[11]

After the practice sessions during qualifying, forty-eight cars were entered but only forty-three was able because of NASCAR's qualifying procedure.[12] Hamlin clinched the ninth pole position of his career with a time of 19.518.[13] He was joined on the front row of the grid by Marcos Ambrose.[13] Biffle qualified third, Ryan Newman took fourth, and Montoya started fifth.[13] Johnson, one of the drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, qualified nineteenth while Harvick was scored thirty-sixth.[13] Michael McDowell, Johnny Sauter, Robby Gordon, and Terry Cook failed to qualify for the race while Dennis Setzer withdrew from qualifying.[13] Once the qualifying session was completed, Hamlin commented:

We spent all day working on qualifying trying to get the pole—trying to get that first pit stall because obviously we do feel like it's very important. I think if I’m ahead of the 48 then I could possibly set the tone in whether he leads a lap or not. That's a 10-point swing. That's a little bit of it. It all starts today and that's where our strategy's at. Other than that, I plan on trying to go out there and lead the most laps and win the race—just like everyone else is.[3]

The next morning, Brad Keselowski was quickest in the second practice session, ahead of Bowyer and Harvick in second and third places.[14] Allmendinger was fourth quickest, and Ambrose took fifth.[14] Burton, Jamie McMurray, Bobby Labonte, Ragan, and Johnson followed in the top ten.[14] Carl Edwards was twenty-sixth and Kyle Busch was twenty-seventh.[14] During the third and final practice session, Biffle was quickest with a fastest time of 19.799.[15] Burton and Bowyer followed in second and third places with times of 19.866 and 19.867 seconds respectively.[15] McMurray was the fourth fastest driver ahead of Harvick and Johnson.[15] Gordon was scored seventh, Hamlin took eighth, Aric Almirola was ninth, and Mark Martin was tenth.[15]
