Green Flag Experience Great Addition For Fans
Fans will be able to get up close for driver intros with the Green Flag Experience.
For the first time fans will have the opportunity to watch driver introductions from the track prior to the Goody’s® Headache Relief Shot® 500 at Martinsville Speedway.
The rare on-track opportunity for driver intros is the premier portion of the new Green Flag Experience which will also include a morning full of fun and excitement on the track and under the large tent in The Plaza.
The Green Flag Experience on October 26 will include everything from driver question-and-answer sessions from a stage under the tent and show cars at The Plaza to pre-race availability to walk the frontstretch of the track along with a presence at driver introductions.
“We believe, without a doubt, this is the best pre-race option for fans in racing,” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. “It gives fans the chance to do so many different things that will keep them entertained from early morning until race time. And they will be able to be on the track for driver intros.”
Diet Mountain Dew Driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., a two-time winner this season, is scheduled for an emceed question-and-answer session in The Plaza, along with seven-time Sprint Cup winner Jamie McMurray and David Ragan, winner of two Sprint Cup races. Other drivers and racing personalities will be announced soon.
