by Casey | Posted on July 8th, 2010

If the roar of Late Model engines gets your heart pumping, then you need to be at the Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300 at Martinsville Speedway, October 1-3, 2010!

Virginia is for Racing Lovers 300

Practice, time trials and heat races set the stage for what will be an intense main event. Make a weekend of it! Twenty-two drivers will secure their starting positions through time trials on October 2nd. The remainder of the field will be set through four 25-lap heat races on October 3rd … think of it as racing before the race!

To the victor goes the sweet spoil of a $25,000 payday - by far the largest purse to be had in Late Model Stock racing.
