Martinsville Late Model Stock 300 returns to September

The richest and most prestigious Late Model Stock race will return to September.

The ValleyStar Credit Union 300 will next be held under the lights on Saturday night, September 26.  The race will once invite the very best of Mid-Atlantic Late Model racing to one historic venue with a tremendous amount of money on the line.

“We look forward to having the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 back on our schedule for late September,” Martinsville Speedway President Clay Campbell said. “The Whelen All-American Series race season will be completed for all the NASCAR-sanctioned tracks by that time and it makes sense to hold the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 at that time for our competitors and fans.”

The race will also remain the final leg of the annual Virginia Triple Crown — a cash bonus provided to the top-three drivers who have the lowest average finish after the marquee summer events at South Boston Speedway, Langley Speedway and Martinsville Speedway.

Back in October, JR Motorsports driver Josh Berry collected the biggest payout in the history of the event upon collecting $44,000 alongside the grandfather clock trophy for winning races at the venerable Virginia short track. Four-time NASCAR national weekly series champion Lee Pulliam earned the Virginia Triple crown title.

The ValleyStar Credit Union 300 will feature a 40-car starting field for the main event with format and other details to be announced at a later date.
