Martinsville, VA---Martinsville Speedway is making several improvements for handicapped race fans. A new handicapped section has been added in turns one and two, and golf carts will be dedicated to carrying handicapped individuals from the handicapped parking lots to the grandstands. The new handicapped section will be at the top of the concrete bleacher sections in turns one and two just in front of the new Old Dominion Tower. The speedway will sell tickets for wheelchairs patrons and a chair seat beside the wheelchair for anyone accompanying a handicapped fan. Tickets in the new handicapped section will be $50 each and are now on sale for the Goody's Body Pain 500 on Sunday, April 9. In the past, the Henry County Baptist Association has provided golf cart rides if requested. Now the speedway will have golf carts dedicated to rides for the handicapped. "We hope the changes make for an even better experience for fans who need those services," said Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. "Our business is about creating memories and we want everyone to have the best experience possible. "The new section provides a excellent view of the track and the top qualifier's pit areas," said Campbell. Handicapped seating is now available in the Bill France Tower, in turn four, and around turns one and two. Tickets for handicapped seating in the Bill France Tower are $65 and in turn four tickets are $50.
