The richest, most prestigious Late Model Stock Car race of the season will take place this weekend at Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Virginia.
It’s the annual ValleyStar Credit Union 300, now set for its third year of taking place in prime time under the lights. Over 80 cars will attempt to first make the field of 42 and then earn $32,000 and the historic grandfather clock trophy.
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. The race will air live on FansChoice.TV and the Motor Racing Network.
