At 0.526 miles (847 m) in length, it is the shortest track in the NASCAR Cup Series. The track was also one of the first paved oval tracks in NASCAR, being built in 1947 by partners H. Clay Earles, Henry Lawrence and Sam Rice per Virginia House Joint Resolution No. 76 on the death of H. Clay Earles. It is also the only race track that has been on the NASCAR circuit from its beginning in 1948. Along with this, Martinsville is the only NASCAR oval track on the NASCAR track circuit to have asphalt surfaces on the straightaways, then concrete to cover the turns.Put Martinsville Speedway on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Martinsville attractions planner.
Martinsville Speedway reviews
great short track which was open to various Mustang clubs during the "end" of the covid restrictions. the gift shop was closed so i can not saying anything about that but being in the track was very..... more »
The track itself is a must-see for any fan as it has plenty of great seats and good racing. The famous hot dogs were nothing to brag about (not bad though). more »
Always a fun place to visit whether it be for a race, a community event or just a quiet visit for pictures on the track with the family when the track is not being used. These are pictured from my first ever race, this being a trick series race and I definitely enjoyed myself and can't wait to attend another race in the very near future.
I came to Martinsville as a guest of Sprint in one of the corporate suites, so I probably didn't get the full experience of what live racing is about. But that said, it was a very enjoyable afternoon. The facility is fantastic and its obvious why it's so well revered in racing circles. All in all, quite the experience!
