This spring at Martinsville Speedway driver safety will be paramount, even after the checkered flag has waved, as DRIVE SMART Virginia and the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles Highway Safety Office’s “Who’s Your Driver” campaign will present the STP 500 race weekend, Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell announced today. The weekend will be called the STP 500 Race Weekend presented by whosyourdriver.org.

“Who’s Your Driver” is an initiative that encourages fans to assign a designated driver.

“We want to encourage fan safety not just during the race, but from the time they leave their house until the time they get home,” Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell said. “By partnering with DRIVE SMART Virginia on the “Who’s Your Driver” campaign, I feel like we are doing just that.”

“Alcohol and driving don’t mix,” said Richard D. Holcomb, DMV Commissioner and the Governor’s Highway Safety Representative. “Impaired driving is no accident, and it’s definitely not a victimless crime. The ‘Who's Your Driver’ initiative, along with this important partnership with DRIVE SMART and Martinsville Speedway, encourages everyone to buckle up and plan for a sober ride home before the party begins.”

“Who’s Your Driver” gives us an opportunity to have an important conversation about safe driving and reminds people that sober driving is the only option,” said Janet Brooking, Executive Director of DRIVE SMART Virginia. ““We're excited to extend this program to a new region and think that Martinsville Speedway is the perfect place to do just that.”

The STP 500 Race Weekend presented by whosyourdriver.org is March 31-April 2, 2017.

 

The weekend starts on Friday with Virginia Lottery Pole Day and continues on Saturday with the Alpha Energy Solutions 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race.

 

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be in action on Sunday with the running of the STP 500.

 

The race is the first short-track race of the season and marks the series’ return to the east coast after the “West Coast Swing.”

 

Last year Kyle Busch became the first driver in the track’s storied history to win both the Truck and Premier Series races in the same weekend.
