Martinsville, VA---Martinsville Speedway will hold several sections of backstretch tickets to be sold on Winston Cup race morning as unreserved seats to families with children. The new family unreserved seating will allow parents to bring children ages six to 12 to the Goody's Body Pain 500 on Sunday, April 9 and the NAPA AutoCare 500 on Sunday, October 1 for $5 per child. Adult tickets in the family unreserved area will be $40. Children under age six get in free to the family section. Martinsville announced earlier this week that it is changing the unreserved sections on the back straightaway to reserved seating. But Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell still wants children who have been attending Martinsville's Winston Cup races for $5, in the unreserved section, to have that opportunity. "We felt that most of the fans who sit on the back straightaway would like to be able to buy the tickets in advance," Campbell said. "But we also want to carry on the tradition of children sitting in that section for five dollars. We want entire families to attend our races together. "We feel it is important that we continue this tradition that helps build young race fans," Campbell said. Families who purchase tickets for the children's section will be given an armband, at the time of purchase on race morning, allowing access to the family section. Martinsville will sell the remaining sections on the back straightaway as reserved seating beginning February 23. Like the other reserved seat tickets for Martinsville's NASCAR Winston Cup Series races, fans can order tickets for this area in advance and they are $40 and $45. Backstretch tickets go on sale Wednesday, February 23 for the Goody's Body Pain 500 on Sunday, April 9. There are excellent seats available in all of the towers and grandstand sections of the track for the Goody's Body Pain 500 NASCAR Winston Cup Series race. All reserved seating can be ordered by calling the speedway ticket office toll free at 1-877-RACE-TIX.
