“We want to make things as easy as possible on our fans with three exciting races coming up,” Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell said. “By opening our ticket office on Saturdays, it gives fans more options when it comes to purchasing their seats whether they want to stop by in person or call the track.”

They ValleyStar Credit Union 300 open test session will take place Thursday, September 14 with the grandstands open for spectators to enter for free.
The ValleyStar Credit Union 300 is NASCAR’s biggest, richest and most prestigious Late Model Stock Car race. Race day – Saturday, September 23 – starts with three 25-lap qualifying races to set the field, followed by a 25-lap “last chance” qualifying race. Last year, veteran racer Mike Looney won the $25,000 prize and the grandfather clock trophy after a thrilling late-race battle with Lee Pulliam.
The Texas Roadhouse 200 presented by Alpha Energy Solutions is the first race in the second round of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoffs. Last year, Johnny Sauter won the race, on his way to winning the series championship.
Kids 12-and-under are admitted free to the Texas Roadhouse 200 presented by Alpha Energy Solutions.
The Speedway will be celebrating its 70th anniversary during the First Data 500 on October 29. The First Data 500 is the first race in the Round of 8 of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. If the winning driver is in the Playoffs, he or she would be the first to clinch a spot in the Championship race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Last fall, Jimmie Johnson won his ninth grandfather clock, on the way to winning his record-tying seventh NASCAR Cup Series championship.
Tickets for all three races are on sale and may be purchased by calling 877.RACE.TIX or online at www.martinsvillespeedway.com.
