NASCAR Betting Online: If you're looking for the best advice for NASCAR gambling, you've certainly come to the right place. Here at Bookmaker sportsbook, we're previewing the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500, which will be held on Sunday, October 27th, 2013, at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Virginia, featuring Jimmie Johnson, Matt Kenseth, Kyle Busch and Jeff Gordon.
Jimmie Johnson may have fallen back early on in the NASCAR Sprint Series Chase for the Cup, but he has a race coming up which could push him up the standings in a hurry. Johnson has found unparalleled success at the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 in the past and will look for yet another win this season on Sunday, October 27th, 2013 at Martinsville, Speedway in Martinsville, Virginia. Johnson has won this event five times -- more than any other active driver -- and is assumed to be the favorite again in 2013 in NASCAR gambling.
Johnson's first victory here came in 2004, and after Jeff Gordon snatched the 2005 title, Johnson won three in a row from 2006-08. He picked up his fifth career victory last season with an average speed of 77.677 miles per hour. Johnson was in first place for most of the regular season but has dropped to third place after one race in the Chase. Matt Kenseth currently leads the 13 drivers with 2,063 points, followed by Kyle Busch (2,055 points). Johnson is 11 points back, while Kevin Harvick (15 points back), Carl Edwards (23), Kurt Busch (23) and Jeff Gordon (24) can also move up quickly with good showings.
Tony Stewart and Denny Hamlin have combined to win three of the past four Goody's Headache Shot Relief 500s, but both dealt with injuries this year and didn't make the NASCAR postseason. Gordon has won here four times but no one else in the field has a strong history here, which should help make Johnson the strong favorite in NASCAR gambling.

How to bet on Nascar Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500
The odds of a driver to win the Goody's Fast Relief 500 will generally look something like:
- Jeff Gordon + 200
- Mark Martin + 250
- Jeff Burton + 300
- Bill Elliott + 700
- Robby Gordon + 700
- Field + 500
These betting odds will be lower when betting on a driver to finish in the top three, as the sportsbook must pay off three different winning bets.
A player would have to bet $10 to win $20 that Jeff Gordon will win the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500, while the bettor wagering on Bill Elliott stands to win $70 on their $10 wager.
Another commonly placed bet in NASCAR is head-to-head finish between two drivers. With this bet, a player doesn't really care what place the driver finishes in, as long as the driver finishes higher than the other driver.
A head-to-head betting line for the Goody's Fast Relief 500 will look something like:
- Mark Martin - 130 Jeff Burton + 110
In this bet, players wagering on Martin to finish higher than Burton will be asked to risk $13 to win $10, while bettors believing that Burton will finish higher than Martin will bet $10 to win $11.
Those familiar with sports betting will have no trouble making the transition to NASCAR wagering, while those new to the world of sports betting should be able to pick up the concepts of NASCAR betting without too much hassle.
2013 Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 Winner - Jeff Gordon wins at Martinsville Speedway
Jeff Gordon passed Matt Kenseth with 21 laps to go and went on to win the Goody's Headache Relief Shot 500 Sunday at Martinsville Speedway.
It was Gordon's first win of the season and the eighth of his career at the .526-mile track that has been hosting NASCAR races since 1949. It also helped Jimmie Johnson, Gordon's teammate at Hendrick Motorsports, hang on to at least a piece of the lead along with Kenseth in the Chase for the Sprint Cup standings with three races remaining in the season.
Johnson finished fifth. He and Kenseth are tied for the Chase lead heading into next Sunday's AAA 500 at Texas Motor Speedway, while Gordon moved into third.
2012 Tums Fast Relief 500 Winner - Johnson dominates TUMS Fast Relief 500
Stop reading if you’ve heard this story before: Jimmie Johnson dominates the fall race at Martinsville Speedway and uses the victory at the Southside Virginia track as a launching pad for a Sprint Cup Series title.
If you haven’t read it before, Johnson has written three chapters to that story and is in the process of penning a fourth.
Johnson dominated the TUMS Fast Relief 500 on Sunday afternoon, leading a race-high 193 laps and holding off Kyle Busch to claim his seventh victory at the track and fourth of the 2012 season. He takes a two-point lead over Brad Keselowski into the final three races of the year (Texas, Phoenix and Homestead).
Johnson won the fall Martinsville race in 2006, ’07 and ’08 on his way to his first three championships. He finished second in ’09 and fifth in ’10 during the final two years of his five straight Cup titles.
Johnson also won the fall race in ’04 and finished second in the standings that season — eight points behind Kurt Busch.
Johnson made sure his ’09 result (second place) didn’t repeat itself by getting a good jump on Kyle Busch on the race’s final restart. Busch had an opportunity to bump Johnson out of the way in Turn 1 on the white flag lap, but knew the championship implications that were riding on the last lap.
2011 Tums Fast Relief 500 Winner - Stewart survives caution-filled Martinsville race
Tony Stewart made a statement at Martinsville Speedway by capturing the win behind the wheel of his No. 14 Office Depot/Mobil 1 Chevrolet, Stewart took the lead on the final restart and remained on the point for the final three laps of the 500-lap/263-mile race.
It is the two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) champion’s third win in the 2011 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup and catapulted him to second in the standings, just eight points out of the lead with three races remaining in the season.
This win in the TUMS Fast Relief 500 is Stewart’s third at the tough .526-mile track in southern Virginia. He led three times for a total of 14 laps on the way to his 42nd NSCS career win.
Five-time defending NSCS champion Jimmie Johnson, No. 48 Mylowes Chevrolet, finished second just .170 seconds behind Stewart. Johnson led twice for a total of 61 laps and sits sixth in the standings, 43 points behind the top-spot.
2010 Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville - Race Results
Denny Hamlin won the TUMS Fast Relief 500 on Sunday at Martinsville Speedway to pull within six points of Jimmie Johnson in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup points standings.
After four laps of side-by-side racing, Hamlin passed Kevin Harvick on lap 471 and kept the top spot the rest of the way during green-flag racing.
