Martinsville Speedway is a Nascar stock car racing track located in Ridgeway, Virginia, just to the south of Martinsville. At .526 miles in length, Martinsville Speedway is the shortest track on the Sprint Cup circuit. Martinsville offers some of the most exciting and close racing in Nascar.
When the Martinsville Speedway first opened, NASCAR was just an idea. When NASCAR was formed, Martinsville Speedway was a charter member, a membership that endures after more than 60 years.
In fact, the historic Virginia half-mile oval is the only track that was on the schedule in the first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season that still hosts the series today.
From the original capacity of 750 seats, Martinsville Speedway has grown remarkably over the years. Nearly 70,000 tickets sell out virtually every time Martinsville Speedway hosts NASCAR’s top stars.
