Jeff Gordon The One To Beat At Martinsville?

And then there were eight… as we hit the third round of the NASCAR playoffs.

FOX News Radio’s Joy Piazza gives you the lowdown in this week’s “FOX in the Fast Lane”:

Joey Logano may be riding high after sweeping all three races in the Contender Round… But he’s not the man to watch heading into round three of The Chase at Martinsville… Just ask Kurt Busch

(Busch) “I think we’re going to have to beat Jeff Gordon. I think he’s going to be the car to beat. I think he’s gonna use that Hendrick dominance to do well there and if we can channel what we’ve done to win in Martinsville back in 2014, that’s going to be our best strategy.”

With eight career wins, Gordon is looking for his ninth trip to victory lane at “The Paperclip”.

(Gordon) ”Tracks that we’ve led laps on this year… so far it’s been restrictor plates and Martinsville and… I’m pretty excited about not just this round but certainly Martinsville being in it.”

2013 was the last the time the No. 24 Chevy crossed the finish line first, but a win this weekend would punch his ticket to the final race in Homestead-Miami and possibly his fifth NASCAR title.
