Founded in 1947 by the late H. Clay Earles, Martinsville Speedway is only track which has hosted NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races every year since the division’s inception in 1949.
At .526 miles in length, Martinsville Speedway is the shortest track on the Sprint Cup circuit. But because of its size and shape – described most often as the shape of a paperclip – Martinsville offers some of the most exciting and close racing in the sport.
Also because of its size, fans are closer to the action than any other track. The cars are never more than a few hundred yards away and sometimes they seem close enough to reach out and touch.
The track is also one of the most modern, with high-rise aluminum chair back seating, corporate and fan suites and state-of-the-art facilities for the media.
In a recent poll of race fans by a major publication, Martinsville Speedway was voted as the top bargain in all of Sprint Cup racing as well as the track having the best view of the action.
Now owned by International Speedway Corporation, Martinsville Speedway conducts three major race event weekends each year. The track annually hosts the STP 500 and the Goody’s® Headache Relief Shot® 500 Powered by Kroger NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races, the Kroger 250 and Kroger 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races and the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 NASCAR Late Model Stock Car race.
