“Martinsville Speedway, otherwise known as the paper clip, is the shortest track in the NASCAR Cup Series. This unique track offers a combination of long straightaways and narrow turns which makes for some exciting racing."
This track is easy to maneuver and has been voted as the ”best track to view all the action”! The seating is comfortable too with high-rise aluminum chairbacks.
We also stay in Greensboro, NC which is only 45 minutes away from Martinsville Speedway. Our accommodations are at the Embassy Suites – Airport. We love the two room suites, the cooked to order breakfasts, evening managers reception and the airport shuttle all combined to make our stay luxurious and comfortable.
If you are flying in, the Piedmont Triad International Airport is just three minutes from the Embassy Suites and they would be happy to send the shuttle to pick you up.
Weather during the October race weekend in Martinsville is usually cool with a high in the 60s and lows in the 40s.”

The paper clip design combined with the short length of the track activates the scene for some of the most heated and close racing you will find in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series. Tempers often flare but the one who can hold on the longest to cross the finish line will take home the coveted Grandfather Clock trophy.
There is another iconic treat that this Speedway has to offer, the Famous Martinsville Speedway Hot Dog! You can’t leave without one or two!
