NASCAR returns to the exciting Martinsville Speedway, where action is never in short supply.
The sixth race of the season will be staged at Martinsville Speedway on March 30th. The Tums Fast Relief 500 will be the fifth-to-last race of the season, when the championship battle is taking shape and the contenders are separating themselves from the pretenders.
Martinsville Speedway will prove again, its not the size of your track that counts, its what you do with it. At slightly more than half a mile, the Martinsville Speedway is the shortest track on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Circuit. Don't let Martinsville small size fool you, because this track is one of the biggest when it comes to action. It has 800 foot straight-aways and turns banked at only 12 degrees of banking, and has been called "two drag strips with a turnaround on each end".
Martinsville Speedway, the .526-mile track, built in 1947, is often referred to as a ‘paper clip’ for its unique flat shape and low-banked oval configuration. Martinsville not only tests the mechanical fortitude of race teams, but patience as well. The 500-lap/263-mile event is marked by bumper-to-bumper racing that chews up brakes and spits out race-car parts in a grinding battle of attrition. The demanding layout consistently produces some of the wildest fender scrubbing, push and shove racing on the NASCAR circuit.
