RIDGEWAY, VA – As part of the 75th anniversary season, Martinsville Speedway will host Track Laps for Charity as part of its spring’s three-race night and fall’s penultimate NASCAR Playoffs.
The events will offer fans the opportunity to drive their personal vehicles around the historic half-mile for a donation of $25.
All proceeds will support the beneficiary charity.
“We look forward to welcoming the community to the track for a ride before NASCAR’s best take to the track,” said Clay Campbell, Martinsville Speedway President
This year’s events will benefit Vet Tix on Wednesday, April 6 and Grace Network on Wednesday, October 26 and will be held under the lights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Vet Tix is a national non-profit that provides event tickets to their 1.6 million verified veterans, currently serving military members and first responder members.
The Grace Network of Martinsville and Henry County supports those in the community who need support to keep a roof over their heads, homes warm and lighted, and food on the table with short-term assistance and long-term solutions.
To participate, fans must abide by the following rules:
All drivers must be 18 years of age or older with a valid state-issued driver’s license
Driver and passengers must sign Track Laps for Charity waivers
All participants must adhere to Virginia state laws regarding the usage of seat belts and child safety restraints
Passenger vehicles only; motorcycles are not permitted
Maximum speed is 55 miles per hour and regulated by Martinsville Speedway personnel in the Official Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car
Drivers must stay up to speed and refrain from lagging behind in order to speed up
Track Laps for Charity may be postponed or canceled due to inclement weather or safety conditions. If a cancellation is necessary, Martinsville Speedway says it will make its best effort to contact guests in advance of their visit
