NASCAR At Martinsville: Race Time, TV, Weather And More

The Goody's Fast Relief 500 is taking place at Martinsville Speedway which is one of the oldest NASCAR tracks. Martinsville opened on July 4, 1947 and the first NASCAR race took place two years later.

Two drivers that have historically raced well at Martinsville is Denny Hamlin and Jimmie Johnson. The two combined to win all nine races from 2006-2010 with Johnson winning five and Hamlin winning four; however that winning streak ended last year.

In qualifying Hamliln finished third while Johnson came in at 22nd; the top two where Kasey Kahne and Kevin Harvick. So if Johnson is going to challenge in this race they will need to have an exceptional race. Carl Edwards qualified at No. 28 this weekend.

Date/start time: Sunday April 1, 12:30 p.m. ET

Location: Martinsville Speedway, Martinsville, Va.

TV: FOX

Weather: Mostly sunny with temperatures around 70, low threat of rain.
