Martinsville VA---Construction of Martinsville Speedway’s suites is nearly completed and the speedway has built new retaining walls on the inside of the track. Only three of the eight new suites in turns one and two were finished for the Goody’s Body Pain 500 in April and the remaining five suites are scheduled to be completed for the NAPA AutoCare 500 on Sunday, October 1. Frith Construction is putting the finishing touches on the suites now and the new elevator for the suites and press box has been completed. The new suites have 48 seats each and give an outstanding view of the action. Two of the suites are still available for the NAPA AutoCare 500. For rental information on the suites contact Karen Parker, director of marketing and business development, at 540 956-8460. The speedway now has a total of 25 suites, 22 of which have been built in the past two years. Since April, Martinsville also has constructed new concrete retaining walls, separating the track from the pits, on the inside of the front and back straightaways. Martinsville’s next racing action, this year, is the Taco Bell 300, the richest race for NASCAR's Late Model Stock cars with $25,000 to win, on Sunday, September 24. The Goody's Body Pain 200 NASCAR Featherlite Modified Tour race is Saturday, September 30 and the 45th annual NAPA AutoCare 500 NASCAR Winston Cup race is on Sunday, October 1. Tickets for the Taco Bell 300 and Goody's Body Pain 200 are unreserved. There still are excellent reserved seats available for the NAPA AutoCare 500 in the towers and concrete bleacher sections from $40-$70.
