ValleyStar Credit Union 300 postponed to Sunday

Rainfall from Tropical Storm Ophelia prompts Martinsville to move race to Sunday afternoon


Martinsville made the decision Saturday morning to postpone the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 to Sunday afternoon due to expected impacts from Tropical Storm Ophelia.

Heat races will take place at 1:00pm and the feature will go green at 5:00pm on Sunday, all broadcast live on FloRacing and MRN.  Before Martinsville Speedway installed its state-of-the-art LED lighting system in 2017, the ValleyStar Credit Union 300 had been a Sunday afternoon race.

The pre-race autograph session has been canceled, and all 40 spots will be determined in the four 25-lap heat races that will commence on Sunday afternoon.
