Martinsville, VA---Martinsville Speedway's 5,000 new seats in turns one and two will go on sale March 15 for the Goody's Body Pain 500 on April 9. The addition, which has been named the Old Dominion Tower, will be an outstanding place to watch Winston Cup action, according to Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell. The track named the tower Old Dominion because that was the name of Martinsville's fall Winston Cup race from 1956 until 1982. "The seats are located so that fans will look down the track and they will not miss anything," Campbell said. "Fans will never have to turn their heads because everything will happen right in front of them. The tower also is located in front of the top qualifiers pit area." The project, which began after the NAPA AutoCare 500 in October, also includes eight new suites and a press box. The seats, press box and three suites will be completed for the Goody's Body Pain 500 and the remaining five suites will be available for the NAPA AutoCare 500 on October 1, 2000. Tickets in the new section will be $70 each. The Goody's Body Pain 500/NAPA 250 weekend is April 7-9 and will include the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in the NAPA 250 on Saturday, April 8, and the NASCAR Winston Cup Series in the Goody's Body Pain 500 on Sunday, April 9 at 1 p.m. Qualifying for both races will be Friday, April 7.
