Martinsville, Va. – The 2019 ValleyStar Credit Union 300 at Martinsville Speedway will be held on Saturday, October 5.
The race, which is the biggest, richest and most prestigious NASCAR Late Model Stock Car race in the country will once again run under the lights.
“A lot goes into selecting the date for this race,” Speedway President Clay Campbell said. “We need to make sure we are running after the weekly tracks have ended their seasons, that we can get the right resources here to run the race, and make sure it’s a date that will work for fans. I think by moving the race back one week, we have accomplished all of that.”
The race will also serve as the final race in the Virginia Triple Crown, a bonus paid to the driver with the best average finish after the Thunder Road Harley-Davidson 200 at South Boston Speedway, the Hampton Heat 200 at Langley Speedway and the ValleyStar Credit Union 300.
In 2018, veteran racer C.E. Falk III took home the grandfather clock trophy for winning the race and Peyton Sellers won the Triple Crown.
The ValleyStar Credit Union 300 regularly sees more than 75 Late Model Stock Car teams from around the country try to make the 40 car field.
More information about the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 will be forthcoming.
