Martinsville Speedway is a NASCAR-owned stock car racing short track in Ridgeway, Virginia, just south of Martinsville. 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 stock car racing, being built in 1947 by partners H. Clay Earles, Henry Lawrence, and Sam Rice, nearly a year before NASCAR was officially formed. 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 oval track on the NASCAR circuit to have asphalt surfaces on the straightaways and concrete to cover the turns.

  • Great racing, reasonable prices, like going back in time to old-school racing. 2022 Update: Still reasonable prices but less off-track vendors, etc. every year. And now with new car the racing is poor. Shame.
  • I went to the truck race last night. I had a really good time. The track is very nice and they have very nice people working there. Plus it’s close by which is nice.
