The test day for the annual Late Model Stock Car race at Martinsville has been set.

The six-hour practice session will take place on Thursday night, September 26 at the historic Virginia half-mile. The session is scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m. and will run through 10:00 p.m. under the lights in advance of the third Late Model Stock night race.

The race itself is scheduled for October 4-5 with the race itself taking place that Saturday night. C.E. Falk III is the defending race winner. The race will feature a record purse in 2019, with the winner taking home $32,000 with an overall field purse of $110,000. The race will air live on FansChoice.TV and the Motor Racing Network.

A new event format will see single car time trials replace group qualifying, a mandatory 50 lap to go competition caution and unlimited attempts at a green-white-checkered finish.
