There are quite a few elite Sprint Cup drivers who have never won at Martinsville Speedway.
In fact, only seven current Cup drivers have won at Martinsville: Jeff Gordon (seven wins), Jimmie Johnson (six wins), Denny Hamlin (four wins), Tony Stewart (two wins), Mark Martin (two wins), Jeff Burton (one win) and Kurt Busch (one win).
Such a short list of previous Martinsville winners leaves some top names as hopefuls for gaining their first win at the track.
I have identified the top contenders as well as a few dark-horse candidates to take their first Martinsville checkered flag. Which drivers could pick up their first grandfather clock trophy on Sunday? Read on to find out.
