MARTINSVILLE, VA. (March 21, 2005) - Race fans will have the opportunity to have a good time and help the Victory Junction Gang Camp the night before qualifying for the Advance Auto Parts 500 and Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway.

At least 10 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series drivers will be on hand to sign autographs at Kroger Night With The Drivers on Thursday, April 7 at the old Lowe's building, just south of the entrance to Martinsville Speedway.

Gates open at 3 p.m. on April 7. Drivers will be signing autographs from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and there will be an auction of racing memorabilia from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Tickets may be purchased at participating Kroger stores and Martinsville Speedway.

On the night of the event, each NEXTEL Cup driver present will have a special signup table for autographs. Each driver will be limited to the first 250 paying customers signed up. Wristbands will be issued to customers when they sign up.
