|Jeff Gordon has eight grandfather clocks won from Martinsville|
In his past 20 Martinsville starts, Johnson has an average finish of 3.8, which is the most eye-popping stat in NASCAR. To avoid all the pitfalls that most everyone else seems to have on the flat half-mile paper-clip is one of the most amazing things we have witnessed during Johnson's storied career. Forget the six championships; dominating at the highest level, for so long, should be on a 'Ripley's believe it not' episode.
Jeff Gordon won the fall race at Martinsville last season and gained the eighth grandfather's clock (the trophy for winning) of his Hall-of-Fame career. Over 42 starts, Gordon has also notched 27 top-5 finishes. If it weren't for Johnson, Gordon would be the hands-down favorite to win, but he still comes in at his lowest odds of the season to win a race at 5-to-1.
Beyond his great history, the thing that makes Gordon appear to be the best value this week is that he's on a roll. Last week at Fontana, he had his best car of the season though he came up with his worst finish, thanks in part to a Clint Bowyer spin, while Gordon was leading, that brought out a late caution flag. Gordon's 13th-place finish was his first finish outside the top-10 this season.
