Martinsville Speedway Fund-Raising Silent Auction Will Be A Race Fan’s Delight

Auction At Lt. Dan Band Concert On March 31 Will Benefit American Hero J.B. Kerns





MARTINSVILLE, Va. (March 16, 2012) – Race fans will be able to pick up some pretty impressive racing memorabilia while helping build a home for an American hero on March 31 at Martinsville High School.

Actor Gary Sinise’s Lt. Dan Band will play a concert at Martinsville High School on March 31 as part of a fund-raiser for the construction of a specially-equipped smart house for Cpl. J.B. Kerns, who lost both legs and an arm in an explosion in Afghanistan a year ago.

Before and during the show, concert-goers will be able to bid on an amazing array of racing items, including the autographed rear bumper from Tony Stewart’s TUMS Fast Relief 500 winning car last fall and an autographed driver’s uniform worn by Rusty Wallace during his Last Call Tour in 2004. There will also be some non-racing items, including a script from CSI: NY, signed by Sinise, the show’s star. All of the money raised from the auction will go to the house-building efforts for Kerns.

To be eligible to bid on any items, you must have a ticket to the Lt. Dan Band Concert.

Sinise will be the Grand Marshal for the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 on April 1 while Kerns will be the Honorary Starter.

“We have been amazed at how the racing community has responded with items for this auction. They understand that J.B. is a true hero and they want to help all they can,” said Martinsville Speedway president Clay Campbell. “Not only have we gotten a large number of items to auction, but the quality and value has been impressive. And we expect the list to grow over the next two weeks.”

Autographed silent-auction items include: Darrell Waltrip chrome helmet; Rusty Wallace driver uniform from his final career win at Martinsville Speedway in 2004; rear bumper from the car Tony Stewart drove to victory at Martinsville Speedway last fall; rear bumper from Ryan Newman’s car; Kyle Busch helmet visor; Jeff Burton racing shoes; Richard Petty diecast car; Richard Petty crew shirt; crew outfit from Kevin Harvick’s GM Goodwrench team; GM Goodwrench hat from Kevin Harvick; a Kevin Harvick autographed diecast car; the hood from the Fastenal Tunnel to Towers car driven by David Gilliland at Richmond last year, autographed by Gary Sinise and J.B. Kerns; and a script from CSI: NY autographed by Sinise.

Other auction items include four suite tickets to the Good Sam Club 500 at Talladega and pace car rides and the Richard Petty Driving Experience at Daytona International Speedway.

Tickets to the concert are $25 an may be purchased online at www.piedmontarts.org  or by calling 276.632.3221.

Newman Makes Animal Friends, Talks Racing At Martinsville Speedway



MARTINSVILLE, Va. (March 14, 2011) – Ryan Newman is in the spotlight after a strong fourth-place showing in this past weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, but Wednesday he found himself upstaged by a lumbering, lovable Great Dane named Bodhi.

Newman was in town visiting the Martinsville-Henry County SPCA as part of a media promotion for the upcoming Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway. He was greeted in the parking lot on arrival by the 20-month old, 165-pound Bodhi, who seldom left his side for the next 90 minutes and even visited with Newman at the track later in the day.

The visit to the SPCA was second nature to Newman. He and his wife Krissie share a love of animals and formed the Ryan Newman Foundation several years ago to help educate and encourage people to spay and neuter their pets and to adopt dogs and cats from animal shelters. The Martinsville-Henry County SPCA has helped the Ryan Newman Foundation in the rescue of animals.

“They have a great facility, run by great people,” Newman said of the Martinsville-Henry County SPCA. “I got to see a great skit, their Paw and Pet Show. It was really fun, educational, cool and amazing for them to put together something like that.”

While much of the day was spent with animals, and talking about animals, Newman did manage to talk some racing, especially racing at Martinsville Speedway and the upcoming Goody’s Fast Relief 500 on April 1.

Newman has come oh-so-close to winning at Martinsville, but has never visited victory lane at the historic half-mile oval. In last spring’s Goody’s Fast Relief 500 he looked to be on the verge of breaking through, running fourth on lap 327 when a header pipe broke and cost him two laps in the pits for repairs. He wound up 20th after starting second.

“You have to survive here, that’s the hardest part,” said Newman, whose Chevrolet will be sponsored by Outback Steakhouse in the Goody’s Fast Relief 500. “You can show up and be ready to go to war, but if you are the first person to get bombed, it’s over for you.”

Martinsville Speedway will be kicking off its 65th season of racing with the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 weekend on March 30-April 1.

Great ticket packages and seats are on sale for the entire weekend and may be purchased by calling 877.RACE.TIX or online at www.martinsvillespeedway.com.

Goody’s® Headache Powder Selects Gary Sinise as Grand Marshal for Goody’s® Fast Relief 500



Local Hero, Marine Cpl. Josh “J.B.” Kerns, to Wave the Green Flag on April 1




MARTINSVILLE, Va. (March 6, 2012) – With only 27 days until the headache-inducing, short-track Goody’s® Fast Relief 500 race at Martinsville Speedway, Goody’s® announced today that award-winning actor Gary Sinise will serve as the grand marshal; while local hero and wounded veteran Marine Cpl. Josh “J.B.” Kerns will wave the green flag to start the 500-lap event on April 1.

Sinise, currently starring on CBS’ “CSI:NY,” launched the Gary Sinise Foundation in 2011, a non-profit organization that honors defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities. For more information, go to www.GarySiniseFoundation.org.

Recently, the Gary Sinise Foundation and The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation (named after a fallen firefighter on 9/11), announced a partnership to build Kerns a “smart home” in his hometown of Ararat, Va., as part of the Building For America's Bravest Program. Throughout the Goody's® Fast Relief 500 weekend, efforts will be underway to raise funds and awareness, including a concert with Sinise's Lt. Dan Band at Martinsville High School on March 31. To make donations to Building For America's Bravest Program, you can go to http://www.garysinisefoundation.org/help_us/donate  or https://tunneltotowersfoundation.org/donate_now.aspx.

The Goody’s Fast Relief 500 will be Sinise’s first time reciting the most famous words in racing—“Gentlemen, Start Your Engines.”

“The Goody’s Fast Relief 500 weekend is going to be an unforgettable weekend, bringing together the best racing in the world with an amazing effort to help J.B.,” said Sinise. “I am so grateful to Goody’s®, Martinsville Speedway and the community for allowing us to be a part of this weekend.”

Kerns, a long-time fan of racing, will serve as the Goody’s® Fast Relief 500 honorary starter. He was injured in Afghanistan in April 2011 when an IED exploded, costing him both legs and his right arm. Since that explosion, Kerns has endured tremendous pain, having undergone extensive surgeries and strenuous daily physical and occupational therapy in Bethesda, Md.

“When I was growing up I remember sitting down with my family on the weekends and watching the NASCAR races,” said Kerns. “And now, it’s awesome to think that I am going to be the one waving the flag that’s going to start the race.”

“Goody’s® and BC® Powders are known for providing fast relief for tough pain,” said Joseph Juliano, brand director for Goody’s® and BC® Powders. “Being on the front line, in terms of helping those in need and serving our country in combat, Gary and J.B. demonstrate that painful moments can come unexpectedly. We hope the roles we’re giving them for our race become a source of relief and joy in some small way. We salute the commitment and service of both men and look forward to a fantastic Goody’s® Fast Relief 500.”

Tickets to the Goody’s® Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway are on sale. For more information, call 877.722.3849 or visit www.martinsvillespeedway.com.  For more information about Goody’s® Headache Powder, visit www.goodyspowder.com.

Kenseth Needs Some Daytona Magic For Goody’s 500 At Martinsville Speedway

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (February 28, 2012) – Matt Kenseth probably hasn’t had time to think about Martinsville Speedway and the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 since he capped off a wild night of racing with his second Daytona 500 victory in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

But when the tight half-mile oval does come to mind, Kenseth will probably have better thoughts than in the past. For much of his NASCAR Sprint Cup career, the Wisconsin native has struggled at Martinsville, but the chilly relationship has warmed a bit the last couple of seasons.

“Actually I like Martinsville and if I were a fan, it would be one of the top five or six race tracks I would want to go to see a race,” Kenseth said last spring. “It has been one of those places that has been mentally tough on me. But I will say it has been better for me the last few times.”

He finished sixth in the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 last spring and was looking at a top-10 finish in the TUMS Fast Relief 500 in the fall when a late-race dust-up with Kyle Busch relegated him to 31st on the day.

In the spring of 2010 it looked like Kenseth was on the verge of breaking his long Martinsville winless streak when he gave leader Jeff Gordon a nudge late in the race. Gordon pushed back harder a lap later. Denny Hamlin wound up winning and Kenseth was 18th in the final rundown.

In 24 career Sprint Cup starts at Martinsville Speedway, Kenseth has seven top-10 finishes and has started on the outside pole twice.

Asked last spring what it took to be competitive at Martinsville, Kenseth said: “I don’t know. This is probably one of my worst places. I’m probably the wrong guy to ask about that, but I think you’ve got to have a car that turns good and still drives off the corner without spinning the tires, and then you have to be patient and smart and be there at the end.”

He was “patient and smart” on the way to the sixth-place run last April. He is hoping for a repeat performance this time around.

Martinsville Speedway will be kicking off its 65thth season of racing with the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 weekend on March 30-April 1.

Great ticket packages and seats are on sale for the entire weekend and may be purchased by calling 877.RACE.TIX or online at www.martinsvillespeedway.com.

Motor Racing Network To Stream Entire 2012 Broadcast Schedule


CONCORD, N.C. (February 17, 2012) – Motor Racing Network – “The Voice of NASCAR” – will be even more accessible during the 2012 racing season with today’s announcement that it has added live web streaming for fans to access MRN race broadcasts and other programming throughout the year.

Starting with Saturday night‟s Budweiser Shootout at Daytona International Speedway, fans can hear MRN race broadcasts online as well as over the airwaves by visiting www.motorracingnetwork.com.  Veteran voices Joe Moore and Eli Gold will anchor the coverage, which also will be heard on more than 350 affiliate radio stations across the country. Motor Racing Network’s live coverage from “The World Center of Racing” will continue Sunday with Daytona 500 Qualifying Presented by Kroger.

“This has been a long time in the making and the patience our fans have shown has paid off,” said MRN President and Executive Producer David Hyatt. “As we start our 43rd year as „The Voice of NASCAR,‟ Motor Racing Network is excited about the opportunity to reach our fans in the digital media space. This is a dynamic new platform for the network and our affiliate radio stations across the country to serve NASCAR‟s growing fan base online.”

NASCAR.com will continue to offer race radio broadcasts as part of the Trackpass subscription product. In addition, NASCAR.com will partner with MRN to offer all fans radio streaming for special events, rainouts and other unique NASCAR coverage.

MRN‟s 2012 broadcast schedule features 86 live events from 33 venues, including full coverage from Speedweeks in Daytona that will culminate with the 54th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 26. In addition to all races streaming live on MotorRacingNetwork.com, listeners in MRN markets will be able to access the broadcasts on the websites of individual stations which choose to stream the events.

Motor Racing Network’s daily and weekly programming is also part of the agreement. NASCAR Live on Tuesday nights recently launched its 29th year. NASCAR Today – hosted by Woody Cain and Kyle Rickey – is fed to affiliates three times daily featuring breaking news and updates from the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Motor Racing Network’s 2012 schedule began last month with a live broadcast from the NASCAR Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and included around-the-clock coverage of the Rolex 24 at Daytona. It‟ll conclude in December with the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Banquet in Las Vegas.

Late Model Drivers Will Be Gunning For Bigger Bucks At Martinsville, South Boston, Langley



MARTINSVILLE, Va. (February 14, 2012) – Martinsville Speedway, South Boston Speedway and Langley Speedway have joined forces in 2012 to offer area race fans a unique tripleheader — the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series.

The Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series will consist of the season-opening NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 Presented by Danville Toyota at South Boston Speedway on March 10, the Langley Hampton Heat 200 on July 28 in Hampton and the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 on Oct. 21 at Martinsville Speedway.

All three races already feature big-money payouts, but the implementation of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series will add an even bigger bonus for three drivers and a ton of hype and excitement for the region’s short track racing fans.

The NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 Presented by Danville Toyota and the Langley Heat 200 each feature $10,000 payouts for the first-place finishers and the winner of the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 claims a $25,000 payday.

The winner of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series this year will receive an additional $5,000. The runner-up in the competition will claim $3,000 and the third-place finisher will receive $2,000.

The Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series was established to reward the top finishers in the three “big-money” races at South Boston, Langley and Martinsville. Points will be awarded to competitors based on their finish in the “feature” race at each site and the points will be applied using the standard NASCAR Whelen All-American Series point structure.

The driver with the highest point total over the course of the three races will claim the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series title.

Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell said the news of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series would make the event at his speedway even more enticing for the fans and competitors.

“We are really excited about the Virginia Triple Crown Series,” Campbell said. “We all know how big NASCAR Whelen Late Model Stock racing in Virginia is and this is just going to make it bigger.

“And, from a selfish point of view, with the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 being the final race in the Triple Crown, it’s going to make our race more exciting than ever,” Campbell added.

South Boston Speedway General Manager Cathy Rice said fans and competitors were already thrilled that the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 Presented by Danville Toyota would be kicking off the 2012 season at America’s Hometown Track and the addition of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series would only add to the hype for that event.

“We are certainly proud to be a part of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series,” Rice said. “There is already a lot of excitement and anticipation surrounding our season-opening NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 Presented by Danville Toyota race on Saturday, March 10, and the announcement of the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series just adds to the hype for our event.

“We know that the region’s best Late Model Stock Car drivers will be on hand for the NASCAR Whelen Late Model 300 Presented by Danville Toyota and it will be exciting to see who gets a victory in what we refer to as the short track version of the Daytona 500 and who will emerge as the early leaders in the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series,” Rice added.

Bill Mullis, owner of Langley Speedway, said he believed the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series would become an annual event that fans and competitors alike would look forward to.

“The staff and management of these three outstanding facilities are pleased and confident the Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series will become an annual event that highlights and promotes the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and the dozens of talented drivers who race in the series week after week,” Mullis said. “It’s safe to say we’ll see some NASCAR Sprint Cup stars of tomorrow in this year’s Virginia Late Model Triple Crown Series and Langley Speedway is proud to be part of this great series.”

Actor Gary Sinise Announces Fundraiser To Help Build Home
For Young Martinsville-Area Soldier Who Is Triple-Amputee

Forrest Gump, CSI NY Star Will Perform Benefit Concert Goody’s 500 Weekend



MARTINSVILLE, Va. (February 9, 2012) – Award-winning actor and humanitarian Gary Sinise is going to make sure Cpl. J.B. Kerns’ dream of a log cabin on the Ararat River becomes a reality.

Sinise announced today that the Gary Sinise Foundation and The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation (named after the NY firefighter who perished on 9/11), are partnering as part of their Building For America’s Bravest program to build a “smart home” for Kerns that will allow him to live independently.

Kerns lost both legs and his right arm last April as a result of a blast from an improvised explosive device (IED) while on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. The heroic Marine, who’s had to undergo dozens of surgeries, is from Ararat—a small, rural town in Patrick County, about 30 miles from Martinsville Speedway.

The fundraising centerpiece for the project will be a concert performed by Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band at Martinsville High School on Saturday, March 31, at 7 p.m, and 100% of the ticket sales will go toward funding the specially-equipped smart home for Kerns. The next day, at the running of the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville Speedway, Sinise and Kerns will play a special role in the Speedway’s pre-race program.

General admission to the Martinsville concert will be $25. There will also be a limited number of VIP passes available, which include a ticket to the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 and a Sunday morning meet-and-greet with Sinise at Martinsville Speedway.

Tickets will be sold by the Piedmont Arts Association in Martinsville and will go on sale Friday, Feb. 10. They may be purchased online at www.piedmontarts.org  or by calling (276) 632-3221. To make donations to Building For America’s Bravest Program, you can go to http://www.garysinisefoundation.org/help_us/donate  or  https://tunneltotowersfoundation.org/donate_now.aspx .

Sinise, nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of Lt. Dan—the character who lost both legs in battle in “Forrest Gump”—and the star of CBS’ popular “CSI: New York,” is also an accomplished musician. He formed the Lt. Dan Band in 2004 primarily for USO Tours, and now performs 30 to 40 concerts a year to entertain troops and families, to raise funds for charitable efforts to help wounded warriors and families of the fallen, and to support charities devoted to the same.

Said Kerns, "I am overwhelmed at the support my community has given me. I have loved auto racing and NASCAR my whole life, and the fact that Martinsville Speedway, a star like Gary Sinise, and a foundation named after a 9/11 hero fireman, have come together so that I can have a home that is going to give me a good life, is awesome."

“It is my honor to partner with the Tunnel to Towers Foundation to raise the necessary funds to support the building of a home for JB Kerns,” said Sinise. “JB has given so much in service to his country, and it is a privilege to do what I can to give something back to him. I hope that the entire community will join me and my band to help show our support and our gratitude to a great American hero, JB Kerns, the night of March 31. As our 30th president Calvin Coolidge said, ‘The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.’ Let's come together to honor this brave American, and show him that we will not forget what he has sacrificed in defense of our freedom.”

Purchase of the site for Kerns’ house—land overlooking the Ararat River—is being finalized. Its acquisition is made possible by the partnership between the Gary Sinise Foundation and The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.

Since 2011, the two foundations have joined forces to build smart homes for three quadruple amputees. In 2012 they are partnering on nine additional homes for very-severely wounded warriors from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. They completed one home for Spc. Brendan Marrocco, on June 11, 2011 in Staten Island, NY; will break ground on Feb. 14 in Temecula, CA for Cpl. Juan Dominguez’s home; broke ground October 26, 2011 at the Lake of the Ozarks, MO for Cpl. Todd Nicely’s smart home; and this year, in addition to a home in Ararat, VA for JB Kerns, will begin raising funds for homes in Brooklyn, NY, Albany, NY, Columbia, MO, Atlanta, GA, Marietta, OH, and Whitehall, PA.

The Gary Sinise Foundation is dedicated to serving the Nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities. For more information, go to www.GarySiniseFoundation.org.

The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, named after fallen NY firefighter Stephen Siller, is best known for its annual Tunnel to Towers Run which follows Siller’s heroic run from a blocked-off Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the World Trade Center in a desperate bid to save lives. The Run, held the last Sunday of each September, attracts 30,000 participants from around the world. Beginning in 2011, cities all across America—including some of the largest—held their versions of the Tunnel to Towers Run and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Foundation’s “Building for America’s Bravest” program.

Ticket Special Gives Fans Reason To Celebrate Martinsville’s 65th

 

MARTINSVILLE, Va. (January 30, 2012) – It’s Martinsville Speedway’s anniversary, but fans are getting an anniversary present.

In honor of Martinsville Speedway’s 65th anniversary, the track is offering a special $65 ticket package for the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race on April 1.

 

The 65th anniversary ticket package includes a seat in the Sprint Tower (rows 15-48), the South Terrace or the Old Dominion Tower and a pre-race track pass. The Sprint Tower overlooks the first turn while the South Terrace and Old Dominion Tower overlooks the first and second turns.

The pre-race track pass allows fans to walk along the front stretch of the historic half-mile track from 9:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. on race morning. Fans are close enough to the pits that they can get a good look at what happens there on race morning.

Fans may take advantage of the 65th anniversary package by calling 877.722.3849 or ordering online at www.martinsvillespeedway.com. The offer is available while supplies last.

“We think this is a great way to kick off our 65th season. It’s a great value for fans and gives them not only the chance to see great racing from really good seats, but a chance to have a good time down on the track on race morning,” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell.

The 65th Anniversary Ticket Package is the first of many season-long fan promotions and events to celebrate the 65 years of history at Martinsville Speedway.

The anniversary year will culminate with a grand pre-race celebration before the TUMS Fast Relief 500 on October 28 when the speedway will host many of the old time drivers who raced here for interaction with fans.

Tickets for the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 on Sunday, April 1 or for the Kroger 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Saturday, March 31 may be purchased by calling 877.722.3849 or online a www.martinsvillespeedway.com.

Martinsville Speedway Will Mark 65th Anniversary With Year-Long Celebration



MARTINSVILLE, Va. (January 23, 2012) – When Martinsville Speedway opened in 1947, bread was 13 cents a loaf and a gallon of gas was just 15 cents. A postage stamp was three cents, The Diary of Anne Frank had just been published, the Miracle on 34th Street was the big draw at the movies and Harry Truman lived in the White House.

As it celebrates its 65th anniversary, the world is vastly different from when Martinsville Speedway founder H. Clay Earles first opened the doors on September 7, 1947. But even with all the change that 65 years brings, some of Earles’ basic philosophies remain, in fact are the reason the historic oval has not only survived, but thrived.

“My grandfather often said a working man or woman deserved to get what they paid for and that’s always been our philosophy here,” said W. Clay Campbell, president of Martinsville Speedway and Earles’ grandson. “I think that has been the key to our success over the years. We have always worked hard to take care of the fans.”

Fans will be the focus of Martinsville Speedway’s year-long 65th anniversary celebration which will include special ticket offers, interactive social media campaigns and web promotions, special commemorative merchandise and collectible items.

The anniversary year will culminate with a grand pre-race celebration before the TUMS Fast Relief 500 on October 28 when the speedway will host many of the old time drivers who raced here for interaction with fans.

Martinsville is a year older than NASCAR and is the only track that remains on the NASCAR Sprint Cup schedule from its inaugural season in 1949. The historic half-mile has grown and progressed with the sport, offering up fan amenities that rival any sporting venue in the country. It kicks of its 65th year of racing action with the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 weekend March 30-April 1.

Other than its fan philosophy, the only thing that hasn’t changed at Martinsville Speedway is the shape of the track itself. The unique paperclip shape with long straights and tight turns consistently produces exciting, action-packed racing.

“Fans know when they come to Martinsville they are going to see hard-nosed, grass-roots racing. They know they are going to see beating and banging, close action,” said Campbell.

Racing returns to Martinsville Speedway March 30-April 1 with the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 weekend. Tickets for both events are on sale and may be purchased by calling 877.RACE.TIX or online at www.martinsvillespeedway.com.

Campbell Loses Sugar-Bowl Bet, Will Serve Hot Dogs To Media In Michigan



MARTINSVILLE, Va. (Jan. 4, 2012) – Tuesday night’s down-to-the-wire Sugar Bowl victory for the University Michigan was quite sweet for Michigan International Speedway president Roger Curtis, but a bit sour for Martinsville Speedway president Clay Campbell.

Michigan’s 23-20 overtime victory over Virginia Tech on Tuesday means Campbell will have to make a trip west in June to serve up MIS’ signature Coney Dogs to the press prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race June 17.

Campbell will wear a maize and blue University of Michigan shirt while serving the media.

“Hail to the victors!” Curtis said. “We are so excited Clay will be in Michigan to greet our guests and serve up the famous Coney Dog to the press. The game was a nail-biter to the very end, and while I’m obviously pleased Michigan won, it was a thrilling game for fans of both teams.”

Campbell’s concessionaire duties are the result of a Sugar Bowl wager he made with Curtis. Each backed his state’s top football team in the Sugar Bowl. Campbell was behind Virginia Tech while Curtis supported Michigan. The bet was simple: if the Hokies won, Curtis would have travelled to Martinsville to serve the Famous Martinsville Speedway Hotdog® to media. If Michigan won, Campbell would visit MIS to serve the Coney Dogs to the press.

“I can’t complain because Virginia Tech played a heck of a game,” said Campbell. “We all thought Tech had won with Danny Coale’s touchdown reception in overtime. But It was sort of like leading a race on the last lap and blowing an engine. You know you should have won, but it was snatched out of your hands and there is nothing you can do about it.

“I look forward to my trip to Michigan this summer, and I don’t mind serving hot dogs to the media. I just wish it was the same good hot dog they are accustomed to getting from me.”

After Coale’s apparent TD reception was overruled, Tech kicker Justin Myer missed a 37-yard field goal attempt. A few plays later, Michigan kicker Brendan Gibbons hit a 37-yarder of his own to give the Wolverines’ victory.

Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, 30 miles from Ann Arbor, Michigan International Speedway is the Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie. It’s the love of racing and the thrill of a great time for race fans and drivers alike.

Founded in 1947 by the late H.Clay Earles, Martinsville Speedway is the only track remaining on the NASCAR Sprint Cup circuit that hosted an event in the series’ inaugural year, 1949. While the facility has grown with the times to include modern, state-of-the-art amenities, the racing hasn’t changed. It is “racing the way you want it to be.”

Latest Martinsville Speedway Construction Project Progressing Smoothly



MARTINSVILLE, Va. (January 3, 2012) – With the help of mild and dry winter weather, work on the latest major construction project at Martinsville Speedway is well ahead of schedule and should be completed well before the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 on April 1.

The project includes demolition of all the restrooms under the Richard Petty Tower on the fourth-turn end of the front stretch and construction of larger, modern restrooms. The new restrooms are being built about 30 feet further back, allowing for a much wider concourse area to help improve pedestrian traffic. In fact, the width of the concourse in that area will be almost doubled.

“We have been very fortunate that with the exception of a couple of days, the workers haven’t been slowed by weather,” said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. “It also helps that the general contractor (Frith Construction Co. of Martinsville) is very efficient. They haven’t wasted any time.”

The new restrooms will be almost twice as large as the present ones and contain amenities comparable with any large entertainment venue.

Fans will also notice a refurbished ticket office when they return for the Goody’s Fast Relief weekend this spring, which includes a new façade and redesigned and refurbished interior.

Racing returns to Martinsville Speedway March 30-April 1 with the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 weekend. Tickets for both events are on sale and may be purchased by calling 877.RACE.TIX or online at www.martinsvillespeedway.com.
