Rain Postpones Blue Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville to Sunday
After 42 laps on NASCAR’s shortest track, rain took over once more after teams, officials and even fans kept their eyes glued to the radar for a majority of the evening. For the second time in three weeks, NASCAR’s Cup Series has been postponed, to be held Sunday following the NASCAR Xfinity Series race, which was also postponed on Friday due to weather.
The start of the race was initially postponed due to weather, while Air Titans worked diligently to dry the paperclip-type track. The green flag flew at 9:10 p.m. with Joey Logano leading the field to the starting line. Denny Hamlin, a five-time Martinsville Hamlin commented on the rain delay after climbing out of the car. “NASCAR cannot catch a break,” he noted. “This is crazy how many rain delays we’ve had.”
NASCAR’s oldest track on the circuit kickstarts its longest stretch of 2021
The Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway kickstarts the largest portion of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series schedule. This April 10 showdown (7:30 p.m. ET, FOX Sports 1) is the first of 17 consecutive weekends of racing, running all the way through July 18 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
During that stretch, we’ll see some of this year’s surprises on the calendar, from a May debut at Circuit of the Americas road course to a June return to Nashville Superspeedway.
But the sport starts with an old favorite, a track they’ve run on for 72 consecutive years in Martinsville Speedway.
The sport’s shortest track is long on history, known for wild finishes and an iconic grandfather clock for one lucky winner. It’s a paperclip-shaped oval where brakes are at.
Last fall, Chase Elliott captured his first checkered flag at Martinsville and won the Cup championship at Phoenix Raceway one week later. NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver hasn’t won since, off to an uneven start in 2021 and is hoping to recapture that November magic.
But he’s far from the only contender without a victory through seven races. Last year’s dominant driver, Kevin Harvick, sits winless along with current points leader Denny Hamlin, 2020 Championship 4 driver Brad Keselowski and two-time Cup champion Kyle Busch. This quartet has a total of 10 Martinsville victories among them, all looking to get off the schneid in a year with quality playoff competition.

Starting Lineup for the Blue-Emu Maximum Pain Relief 500
Who’s at the Front: Denny Hamlin
Joey Logano won the inaugural Bristol Dirt Race but Hamlin continues to win the season-long war. In just seven races, his lead in the Cup standings has grown to a whopping 58 points over Logano, the only driver within striking distance.
Hamlin has put together six top-5 finishes and no result worth than 11th to start off 2021. His three stage victories are tied for the series lead with Kyle Larson, picking up valuable playoff points while an average finish of 4.7 is roughly half the total of his closest competitor.
Who’s at the Back: Aric Almirola
Could the year have started any worse for this 2020 playoff driver? Almirola sits 84 points outside the top 16 after racking up his third DNF in the first seven races, crashing out in the Bristol dirt. He’s without a top-10 finish and has yet to lead a lap for a Stewart-Haas Racing program that’s struggling across the board.
Final News Briefs
FOX booth analyst and four-time NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon has tested positive for COVID-19. The 49-year-old Gordon claimed he had “minimal symptoms” and has been cleared to work the race at Martinsville this weekend.

Sidelining him from racing for at least a couple of months. The 16-year-old driver was set to make his Camping World Truck Series debut at Richmond Raceway next weekend.
