Whether they look forward to camping, tailgating, incredible access with special packages or another spectacular afternoon of racing, Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell said he can’t wait for fans to arrive.
“Our fans expect great racing every time they come to Martinsville Speedway and we take pride in trying to over-deliver, and we always look forward to hosting NASCAR’s great fans here in Southwest Virginia.” Campbell said. “With the NASCAR Playoffs already on the horizon, we look forward to another dramatic weekend full of contact, lead changes, and contenders willing to do anything to take home a grandfather clock trophy.”
The fall schedule at the historic half-mile facility also include the annual Late Model Stock Car race, the ValleyStar Credit Union 300, on September 29.
