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.
Tropical Storm Ophelia made landfall near Emerald Isle, North Carolina on Saturday morning. The storm is expected to impact the entirety of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions.
